“New York said they didn’t want to pay me anything but the minimum,” Eckersley explained. “I was like, ‘Come on.’ You want me to live in New York on minimum wage?”

 

but...

 

“The quality of the fans and the facilities from MLS to League One was a crazy difference,” Eckersley said. “You get treated really well in MLS. There were times at Oldham where I’d get paid late

Sounds like another crybaby all about me, me, me moron.

He was making $373,3k when he got here according to...
http://www.empireofs...s-salary-24847/

He wasn't worth that kind of money and there was no way we were gonna sign him to something like that and clearly nobody else in the league thought he was worth anything either.

Don't watch the Rev eventual playoff-clincher from 2014, when he is lost in no-man's land...

 

He was crap.

MLS "minimum wage" is not real "minimum wage." Guy sounds like a douche every which way.

Good for him if he's happy.  I'm incredibly happy he's no longer our player though.

“In Toronto, I was more about how I looked and what I drove and what kind of place I owned,” Eckersley told the Toronto Sun this week. “I was very materialistic.”

 

"It was always going that way. It just needed time,” said Eckersley, who still owns a condo near BMO Field."

 

He laments being materialistic and wasteful but still owns a condo in downtown fucking Toronto?  Man, he sounds insufferable.

It seems Philly fans have signed up on metrofanatic to vote for themselves (in 'What team do you hate more?') . No real fan of this team would vote anything other than DC.

He was extremely lucky to be so badly overpaid for as long as he was.  He sounds like a fool

I almost posted the exact same thing yesterday. Some memories just fade from your mind.

He missed a lot of time, and, TBF, i recall him actually turning it around for a stretch toward the end and be pretty good for us.   Still, never worth the money.,
