Right now Dudar, but his stock is rising.
Stoitchkov. Even if you can put the Freddy Llarena incident aside, his antics and contempt for his teammates in the playoff loss to Chicago were unacceptable.
yeah - All the time during the run of play, he was always more chummy with them than with his DCU teammates - Never challenged a ball - never challenged a header - disgusting
I screamed more inappropriately negative things at Stoitchkov from my "seat" than I have any other DCU player in our short history.
Most aggravating was he would seem to pick a spot to pass some/most games - a spot no DC United player was ever going to run into ever - and he'd put 10-15 passes there just to be intercepted by the other team during the game instead of adjusting his passes to the actual United player runs.
Dude was seriously stylin' before and after the match if you ran into him and his mafia goons under the stadium though. I am only assuming they were mafia goons, they sure fit the stereotype if they were not.
Agree with Stoichkov because he was just a prick but most talented, least appreciated and understood was definitely Gallardo.
I can't go for this one. I never got the sense that he was unpopular -- he wasn't here long enough to do things to make him unpopular. To this day, many hardcore DC fans have to be reminded that he played for DC.
If he was unpopular it was because he was one of our earlier Argentines, and consequently was expected to lead us to the promised land. He didn't, of course, and we soon learned that merely being from Argentina wasn't enough to ensure success.
Agreed, he put in the effort without result. IIRC he went back to Argentina when Nueva Chicago was promoted and played well there and later in Greece. Filomeno was one of my daughter's favorite players, along with Erpen.
Filomeno and Donnet fall into the category of great players that were not here long enough to shine. Just look at Javier Morales and Fabian Espindola, they didn't do anything too special the first season they came over.
1) Stoichkov - great for Chicago, but seemed uninterested and disingenuious for DCU
2) Convey - has become a more talented player now, but dude has developed a history of being a head case as an ADULT player with US Nats Coach Bradley and with San Jose. So it's difficult to give him a pass on just being immature here in DC as a youth. Is age just a number with Convey?
3) Harkes- Came across a little too entitled here in DC when clearly DCU was built with a team chalked full of MLS stars (Agoos, Pope, Etch, Sannah, Moreno, man the list goes on..., and best damn American Coach EVER. On US Nats level, Wynaldope analyzes as he is pissed at the the world. Just to be rumored of such lowness says enough to be put on list.
I would love to hear Benny Olsen's answer to this thread though. Think it would be great bar room chatter...
