    I guess there wasn't some kind of thread for him already?



    Watching him this year, a move like this seemed pretty likely to me, or at least it seemed likely that he'd have options/suitors overseas.

    Very good move, while they didn't do as good this season Boro is one of the more ambitious Championship sides and Carrick is a good coach

    Also a pretty good central midfielder in his day.

    Awesome. I wasn't expecting this and it's a nice surprise to have another yank to follow in the Championship next season.

    I am not one of those people who think players need to make a quick move abroad. I like seeing players build roots with a domestic club, develop, play a lot, win, and then make the move. Like Tyler

    Aidan accomplished so much with Columbus. He won 2 Cups, he went to the CONCACAF Championship final, he recovered from an ACL tear.

    it is cool to see him leave such a legacy with the Crew

    not a huge fan of the championship but economics seem to be driving a ton of americans there lately

    it's better than staying in MLS for life....and the more americans in europe, the better....so hopefully it works out


    however, the hit rate for getting to the EPL seems pretty low.....

    for example, some recent efl champ americans not getting out of league...or notably NOT improving their club career (yet) via playing in that league:
    haji, sargent, dike, gooch, holmes, kelman, tomkinson, de la torre, olusunde, fossey, jordan morris, miazga, horvath, hoppe, covil, arriola, cannon, steffen, ccv, duncan mcguire etc etc

    some americans who jumped from championship to epl or high league: yedlin, ream, jedi, holden, eddie lewis, trusty (although relegated now...so maybe shouldnt count)

    for the solid majority, its a bit of a black hole league, imo....although there is a smattering of success stories, as well
