It has 600 members. Great group.
Yea, I think Striker should be our #1 concern right not but if the rumors about Xavi are true than there's no need as Cahill should be slided up top.
Bottom line is in the MLS attackers are the backbone of any successful team. Much harder to find quality attacking players than defenders or central midfielders.
PS, Totally agree about Akpan, he's a poor man Luke Rogers.
I would like to see something like this for our opening lineup:
Peggy can't score with a wad of thousand dollar bills in a whore house but damn is he a dangerous player with the ball. One of the most offensively skiller players I've ever seen in the MLS besides his putrid finishing ability. Just put him in a creating type of role for now.
I didn't like the Convey move as it's really not that big of a need but he's a better player than Miller who should be cut ASAP. Still don't know why Miller is on the squad(he literally bounced us out of the playoffs three years in a row..) Use that money elsewhere
Steele and Sam shown they are solid pair of wingers opposite each other. Steele has a nice left foot for crossing and passing while Sam is very pacey and developing into a dangerous scoring threat. When Sam is on he's on..
Central back pairing when healthy should be good but we need depth there. Both are old and Olave is very injury prone. Not good. Would rather have Hulk than Olave due to the fact Hulk never misses games(Olave is better though)
I would like to trade Robles when his value is high and get something in return. I think Meara is a stud at goalie and possibly better than Robles.
