CCJ could be on track for all-time most.

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

Harper's card record is remarkable. He gets one ever 116.5 minutes, the worst in team history. (Minimum 5 cards)

Yea, hes got to figure that out before he can play RWB as a starter. Still think he can play on the wing, but it seems unlikely Strubers will go to a system with true wingers.

Cameron Harper  932 8   116.5000
Pedro   Alvarez 1972    14  140.8571
Carlos  Johnson 989 6   164.8333
Joe Vide    1466    8   183.2500
Juninho 1119    6   186.5000
Marcelo Vega    1319    7   188.4286
Arley   Palacios    3066    16  191.6250
Juan    Pietravallo 1230    6   205.0000
Dru Yearwood    4232    20  211.6000

Branco  1096    5   219.2000
 

Dylan Nealis just misses out on top (bottom?) 10. Edelman is 13th. Edwards finishes 20th.

a player after my own heart.

impressive - above Petravallo


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

I am guessing that most of Carlos Johnson's cards were red...lol

We need hammers than can hit nails on the head!

 

I'd say we've got at least two of them in Morgan and Harper. Those two lead all regular first team players in goals+assists per minute last season.

 

The yellow card stat is very much part of the equation too though. I don't think Harper is an every-week starter until he sharpens up his defensive chops. But if you have a team where you think you can attack down the right side, he should be out there.

I like the metaphor of Struber having hammers (and only hammers) in his offensive toolbox.


Sexy hammers!

We need more like them.

If he scores a goal every game played, while missing a few due to YC suspensions, I will still be happy.

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

on a team that 1) struggles to create regular offensive flow 2) with a defensive coach who can coach up defenders 3) coach who loves wingbacks i'd strongly prefer to take my chances with Harper or Mullings unless we get someone "really good" (better than Kyle Duncan and Edwards).  Otherwise use that budget on a forward or MLS all star level CM.

 

Harper's injury was a major loss for us.  Without him or Ngoma when we needed true explosion to attack a team in transition we didnt have the athletes to do it

If its a loan i'd rather pursue permanent options first unless this has a buy option.  But would be a good signing
