That 6 rating for Adams is bullshit thought he was one of the best on the field against a super talented midfield.

Did everyone just ignore Tim Parker because he played in Canada? He is insanely good.

Yes, that's a pretty soft rating for a d-mid on a team that held a side ranked #7 in the world to only 1 goal on the road.

 

I watched a lot of the game, Adams was good from what i saw. 


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Adams probably added another mill to the transfer fee.

Also this.  Parker's not a project that we've developed, he's been a beast since the day he signed.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

I think playing VAN kept him under the radar, and being the overshadowed 2nd guy in the Kendall Waston pairing had something to do it, methinks.

RIP Cesar Castello and Mike Vallo

Totally agree.  Think that also factored into Vancouver not wanting to commit even more money to a position they already use a decent chunk of their cap space on.  

 

Really can't think of many CB's in MLS that I would take over Parker.  Dude's a beast and almost never makes errors.  That's insanely hard to find on any level.

Going to be hard for us to keep him especially if he continues to get games (he will) for the USMNT. Don't like the fact that he hasn't been signed to a deal yet. Definitely worrisome.
