    When Jardy said that, there was not an Aiden Morris case. Wil was a true success story, from attending Crew games as a kid growing up in the area, to playing on youth teams all the way through the system, etc. He seemed to be on a strong path. Then it got derailed. His career just sort of fell apart.

    I don't think Wil's career fell apart in the sense that he got worse. It's just that the league passed him by.

    I like Wil Trapp but I think we could come up with about 50 other players who are more deserving of being in the Ring of Honor before Wil Trapp even gets a mention.

    I think in 2028, we should honor the fans and anyone who was on the roster in 2018. Doubt we explicitly do a savethecrew memorial night, but I'll take a legacy night with that focus too. Trapp can get some honor then.

    Trapp starts for a very good Minnesota team. Right now. 2nd on the team in minutes. 16 starts.

    The idea that the league passed him by or his career fell apart is patently ridiculous.

    He started 28, 25, and 31 games the previous 3 years.

    I would like to retract my earlier comment on Morris. Counting POs, USOC, Leagues Cup, and CCC (but not ASG), Aidan is over 100 Crew appearances.

    81 in MLS regular, 7 in the POs, 8 in CCC, 3 in USOC, and 3 in Leagues Cup. 102 by my count.

    That sits better with me, somehow.

    Is he an above or below the median defensive midfielder? I'd argue that in 2024, he's a below average starting defensive midfielder. The league has passed him by.

    He's what he always was. Elite circulator of the ball, average at best at everything else.

    This is in reference to him going to Europe i thought.

    Give me a break. When the league passes you by, you cease to be a starter. Much less a starter on a good team.

    He's still an elite ball circulator with good positional instincts and slightly below average athleticism.

    In short, what he's always been.

    Now, in terms of USMNT caps or playing in Europe? Those ships have sailed. But MLS? Not even close.

    Nobody we get is going to step up and Dominate like #8 right away. Nancy will likely have to replace Nagbe in the near future. We definitely need more CMs once Morris leaves to prepare for the future. SZ & DJ will likely get more minutes there going forward. It could be someone else but it’s like going to be those 2 trying to prove they are starter worthy. Although we could pair Nagbe with a more attacking CM option like Alex or the 2 new guys, Taha etc…


    Someone has to seize the opportunity

    It fell apart, as others have said, in regards to the promise of him going overseas, playing for the USMNT, etc. He's become a journeyman starter now. Not a bad thing to be but he was on our cups. He was the last player to have been on our cups for years. So yeah, he plays for Minnesota, whoop-de-doo. It is nothing in the context of the discussion, which was of his promise once upon a time.

    Lol what it’s SZ job to lose DJ is the #3 CM now and his playing time increased as he is the first CM off the bench for now.


    1 Nagbe
    2 Zawadzki
    3 Jones

    that’s just the way it is for right now so idk wtf your talking about

    “My heart is black and gold,” the two-time MLS Cup champion with the Crew (2020, 2023) said postgame. “They've had my back since I was 18, since I first started. I've been through thick and thin here. My coming back, fighting for starting positions. It's been a long journey, and this club means so much to me, and Wilfried [Nancy, Columbus head coach] and his staff mean so much to me.”

    They've got video of him being subbed out and a postgame interview snippet.
