Another former Metro leaves us too soon




An original member of the New England Revolution in 1996, John DeBrito played in eight matches for the MetroStars under then head coach Carlos Alberto Parreira in 1997. He also performed for the Kansas City Wizards, Columbus Crew and Dallas Burn in Major League Soccer. DeBrito competed for the Boston Storm and New York Fever in the U.S. Interregional Soccer League, the Nashville Metros and Connecticut Wolves, playing the 1991-92 indoor season for the Tulsa Ambush as well.



"They better keep playing that RB Arena update because that unbuilt stadium is the only positive thing about this soft-drink-selling, coached-by-a-dumbass, trading-good-players-for-shit, hopeless, retarded, club." - MetroFanatic

"It was always six weeks away. Every month, [Nick Sakiewicz] would say, we're six weeks away from the stadium. It's been the longest six weeks of my life." - Mike Petke

I was not aware that Alfredo Pacheco had died in 2015. He wasnt the greatest defender for Metro, but he was the first Salvadoran for Metro. God speed to all the players listed.

Since I didn't start attending matches until 97, I didn't see Silvera play. Sad to hear that he was going through some stuff. 


I do remember DeBrito the most when he was with Columbus. 

RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.


RIP Cesar Castello, Mike Vallo, Glenn Stampiglia, Bob Paquette, and Warren Lee
