no thank you on Berbatov but if we could get Lampard i would be ok with that. we dont need Help up top. also if we did trade Rafa to Houston who would you like to see come to NY from Houston.



Ummm he was tied for Teves for Golden Boot last year and thats after being benched in favor of Chicharito in Late Jan/Early Feb. If he had started the whole season he would have been miles ahead of Tevez in the goal department.

If physicality is what we're looking for then we should sign Stephen lenhart or Nate jaqua. They are probably well under 100k and are definite areal threats.

I also think Bobby convey would be a good pickup for us as long as his salary isn't too high. I have no problem bringin him in off the bench, but Backe has a problem bringing anyone off the bench.

We should also hire Stevie nicol as backe's replacement.
"I'm sure we won't hear much from [Philly] because of the quality of our fans, of how loud and how boisterous they are," Petke said. "They're probably going to drown them out. But I welcome it. I love it..."

The title of this thread is wrong (not wrong, just the wrong philosophy). We've spent too much time grabbing random players whose skill sets are often redundant rather than additive to our team. We need to target more players who will make the whole better rather than constantly moving the pieces around to make them all fit after we acquire them, thereby negating any advantage. The fact that Tanio was picked for RB, but ends up CM, Solli at midfield, but then RB, our RM Dane as the sudden #3 striker, the ongoing argument over Joel as better inside or wide, Ballouchy as the #10 who ends up on the wing, Rafa from CM to CB to CM, etc..

Of course you always have to make the occaisional adjustment, but we make far too many.

Even in our drafted players, people argued constantly about where should Tchani play and I have read more than once the issue about where Kassel should fit in (too slow for here, not tough enough for there, etc..

The whole DeRo fiasco was partly connected to the fact that every time we bring in a new player we seem to have to rejigger half the lineup.

It worked with Rodgers because Backe knew what we needed and knew the player fit the desription. More often player pick ups have seemed more like flinging the proverbial sh... aganst the wall to see what sticks.

Maybe Hans has finally been hit in the head enough to figure it out.

We shall see said the blind man.

Especially if he's going to have the same fate as the rest of our young guys. Better off being a featured player for one of the top college teams than playing a handful of reserve matches, two Open Cup games, and 10 minutes off the bench in the regular season.
