    Good he's finally on a pro team. Great that Ny/NJ gets more help from the MLS. Not. But that's for a different board.

    This is huge for Nelly. I'm glad to see he finally signed somewhere. The Metro's picked up one of the genuinely nicest guys around. Yi needs to get on the ball and sign somewhere soon.

    I wonder if Yi will sign now and end up with DC? *crossing fingers*

    So where is Akwari going to end up playing with the Metros? Petke and Jolley are pretty much etched in stone as the two central backs aren't they? Can he play on the right?

    He could probably see some time at D-Mid, his pace isn't what it needs to be for him to be an outside back in a 4-4-2.

    Akwari Against Chivas -- No Result Posted

    There's a nice blurb about Akwari on USsoccerUK.com which is the temporary successor site to TeamTalk.com, and it says:

    For some reason it doesn't mention the result of the game, so I guess that's cool, heh.

    That's the only part about Akwari, but the entire article can be found at:

    I was glad to see him get in but it was kind of an odd sub considering they were down late. ARe they going to use him as a wingback???
