We can afford to have an elder statesman as the 3rd DP. Someone not as terrible as Collin was at the end, but someone who has been around the block, has proven themselves to be steady and reliable for most of their career and is looking for one last pay day.

This guy is our #4. Or he should be anyway. We still need that #3. A proven veteran.

Zubar, or maybe Olave re-visited. But at 175k-200k.

I went to a match earlier this year as a neutral when Orlando were playing Nycfc(can guess I have a relative who supports them) anyway Tarek and Spector were both playing as the two CB’s. Tarek has a lot of qualities I like through seeing that game up close and a couple of others for Orlando on Espn+ this year. As some have already said I’m sure Cj brown had a lot to do with acquiring him. Tarek definitely played much better with Spector before he got hurt that very game and had to be paired with lamine sane for the 2nd half of the game and also for most of the season too. Tarek is quick, strong, athletic for a cb has a left foot can play left back too and reads the game well enough to at least be a 3rd choice cb. If you want my opinion when he was playing tarek had to basically cover the whole left part of the pitch (cb and lb)defensively considering Orlando’s left back el munir couldn’t defend for shit through all the games I watched Orlando play. So he’ll certainly cover a lot of ground. Should be a good option to slot in when we lose potentially both of our cbs during the gold cup plus should be good injury cover. Could also be 2nd cover to Lawrence if he gets hurt as well. Let’s not forget that Colin wasn’t even playing when we acquired him in 2016 from Orlando and became our best defender that year. Sure Redding was a miss but I think tarek when he has played has shown more than him. At 26 I would say he can still improve tarek and I think he could start in most mls defenses say except for us and skc. Let’s not forget Aaron long was a late bloomer(sure Portland and Seattle played him out of position). Anyway we only gave up a 4th round pick and got a cheap player who won’t count as an international. This was a good pickup and I hope to get more this offseason.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

He got a lot of work in those 10 minutes. He acquitted himself well. Physical without being clumsy and fouling.

That clip is a good reason why I often turn off the sound when watching games. The commentators just have diarrhea of the mouth, talking incessantly about stuff not connected to the match. LOL

He's surprisingly clean with the ball too, takes good touches and can make a line breaking pass here and there.
