    Has Duka played so far for the Crew?? I am a fan of this kid and want to see him succeed. If he hasn't played in the regular season so far how did he play in preseason and any d-league type of games? Any news on the guy please.

    Do you guys project this guy starting in 1-3 yrs??

    He's been playing both central mid and left mid. I'd say he's probably third on the depth chart at LM right now. I think the fact is, we just have a lot of proven depth, and he's a young guy. I'm sure he'll get a shot in the USOC this year, though.

    he hasn't had MLS time but he did play in some exhibition matches and he has done ok. he's still learning though.

    Duka is a long shot to become anything, but it's a better shot than the other draft picks got.

    he's a warm body that fills a roster spot, no more. it's up to him to prove otherwise. look for him to drop down to USSF 2 in the next couple of years.

    I still think (from the little I've seen of him) that he seems more like a CM than an outside midfielder. He doesn't have great athleticism or crossing ability, but he's better at dribbling in traffic and handling the ball under pressure than any of our CM's at the moment.
