Dilly Duka training with #RBNY, just training and not a trial.

 

I know Duka's entire story with C-Bus and I know of him, but haven't seen enough of him to have a real opinion.

Strange to even differentiate between training and a trial, all the same in the end really.

 

Duka seems like a guy who is more style than substance. Decent dribbler with no end product.

Not really - it is fairly common practice to allow local guys to train and keep their fitness as a courtesy.   Of course, if he super-impresses, it could act as a trial, but that's not the point.

Lateral signings at best are cool I guess.


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.

Duka would be a terrible signing. Escobar seems like a depth signing for the bench.

Still waiting for that impact player to be bought with the Dax money.

Fuck off Duka. We don't need anymore cast-off rejects from other MLS clubs and RB Salzburg.

Have you considered anger management? The guy's trying to make a living, respect that.

Duka would be pointless, Keita at least gives us a pure speed option on the right which is where I assume we're going to try him.

Wouldn't really consider him a cast off. He was frustrated with not getting playing time and posted a Twitter image of how he was doing in training, maybe to remind the Crew that he can provide value. He tried to be slick with it but the team called him out on it's ultimate meaning. Lesson learned.
Could have easily traded Duka if his salary was lower. Instead, put on waivers so teams could renegotiate a salary.
Until we sign a quality CAM, having him as a sub in games where our formation isn't working with play in the middle of the field is not a bad option.

Signing Duka is kind of an admission trading Dax away was a bad idea, no?

what? 

no relation at all

Duka is an accidental potential signing

cast offs from RB Leipzig and Barca (like Henry) are fine though....

 

Interesting to hear the conversations around this.  So Dilly if we sign you its with a provision that you de-activate your Twitter account......
