Not bad for back up but still want more from whoever is 1st striker

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Dyer saying we're close. This would be an immense upgrade over Barlow for the super sub role.

He's 30 yrs old. 

That's weird.

Burke would be a big upgrade over Barlow. But we need the starting striker.

Love him as a 2nd option for sure but we need a number 1.

99th percentile in tackles and blocks!!! An even better defensive forward than Barlow!

He is 6'3. Good in the air. I am open to the move. Would be a better fit to stuber's tactics.

I think we will play with 5 defenders next year. 3 of those defenders ( reyes 6'0, nealis 6'4 and nocita 6'8 or ndam 6'4) + burke 6'3 will make it almost impossible for teams to defend us in set pieces

Upgrade over Barlow. This + Manoel cant be the only moves at striker, though. Have to find a way to send Klimala back to Europe at a loss and sign a new DP striker.

Manoel is too big of a risk for his price tag. I hope he is not comming back

Who knows if that is still in play, maybe not now. Just saying that this doesnt fix the problem, have to hope that those in charge are able to see that.

He always gives us problems when he plays against us.

Manoel shouldnt be back if we sign Burke. Plus I dont think Manoel the upgrade we need. We need a true difference maker and DP

Agree with that too. Manoel can't be coming back with Burke being signed. We need more of a sure thing there. And Klimala has to go. Would rather have Burke playing over him.

1- new DP, 2- Burke, 3- Barlow. Guess its better than Klimala, Barlow and a late arriving and ineffective Fletcher in 2022.

Also I see our scouting has gotten better in light of the defensive forward stats!

No one mentions Serge Ngoma - listed as forward but seem more like a winger to me or whatever u call the front 2 in a 3421. - 7 ? 11?
