This isn't new unfortunately, I remember Doyle giving him shit for it after a guy he failed to track made a run from the midfield to score a game winning goal. Shame cause Yearwoods a tremendous athlete and could be a game changer if he were able to stay focused for 90 min.


I am sorry, what did you say?

That is something that can be learned and hopefully he picks up on that.

We looked really good with davis, yearwood, casseres and clark. And amaya being the super sub.

Wiki has a nice shot but he should be getting playing time with rb 2. He can take over that super sub role when clark leaves.

Yearwood is off RBNYII, looks like. So what's the deal now?

All first teamers outside Luca Lewis/Jorgensen are getting the week off and didn't travel to Pittsburgh earlier this week. Likely due to the volume of matches coming up and *gasp* rotation(!?!) of some players. May get a Yearwood sighting soon.

Still have no idea how we have every international player up though unless we magically acquired another slot.

Coronel, Edwards, Egbo, Pendant, Monzon, Reyes, Yearwood, Carmona, Royer, Fabio, Klimala.

Assuming CCJ got his green card (mixed messages there) and Diarra is deemed "unavailable" and Jorgensen is loaned out to NYRBII for the rest of the year, that's still 11 players for 10 spots (8 standard, the Forever traded spot, Muyl trade).

Typically we have kept another player with II (usually Egbo, Pendant, or Yearwood) to play outside the rules a bit.

I remember the days when we had 4 international slots and treated each as a treasure... Now we just waste them on third stringers.

Wasn't it 3 for a number of years? Back when signing Egdar Bartolomeu was considered a big (and high-risk) move, and Andy Williams got passed around the league like a hot potato despite being one of the better (and cheap) attacking players.

 

Makes you appreciate when teams had far fewer mechanisms to improve (ie Moreno/Galvan Rey screwing Bradley). Today's GMs have little to complain about in comparison. Yet they wonder why apathy is so high when they burn potentially valuable roster slots on third stringers.

For Red Bull Corporate that feels like you spending $2 at CVS.

I've felt Armas wasnt great at developing players, but maybe I was being unfair. Has Struber done better with players from last year? 

 

Amro - Worse

Nealis -  Better

Davis - Better

Clark - Worse (surgery?)

Royer - Worse (age?)

Omir - Worse

Duncan - Same

Yearwood - Worse

Egbo - Worse

Not sure Tarek & Fernandez are worse. Clark was better before his surgery.

I don't know if I'd say that anyone who doesn't have an injury excuse actually looks worse, even if they don't necessarily look better. I would have added CCJ as 'Better' prior to Copa America burnout.

 

Yearwood and Clark are the only guys on that list marked 'worse' that I think have any real potential to get better, and I agree with McSoccer that Clark's surgery took a toll. Tarek is older and has always been error-prone, Omir and Egbo are not MLS-quality players imo.

 

I think Struber's done enough on the development front, fact is that the team is so young he's being asked to be both a reserve and first team coach at the same time.
