In the 73rd (approx) minute of today's game against DC United, Eddie Gaven pulled a move off the dribble that defies description and belief. All I can say is that it involved a 360 spin, beating 4 defenders and ended when he was bodychecked to the ground to prevent him from dribbling into the box by himself. He troubled DC all day off the dribble. We saw this out of him in Finland as well with him drawing two penalties. What we've also seen is that other than good size and speed, he hasn't really showed off a lot else. Ocassionally sharp with the passing, occassionally not. Despite his size has not been impressive in the air. Hasn't looked strong defensively. So the question is: you have a tall, quick 16 year old player who looks enormously talented off the dribble but the rest of his game isn't at that level. What is the procedure from here? Where does he play? What can and do you teach him? How valuable can such a player become? Bradley seems to like him in the A-Mid role and that's where he was today filling in for Guevara (suspended). I'm sure a lot of coaches have seen his size and quickness and wanted him to play target forward, but I haven't seen him be an aerial threat at all yet. He might be useful on a wing, but that usually requires defense in our systems and that appears to be a weakness in his game. So is it a very odd looking A-Mid then? If you didn't see the game but have a tape of it or something, watch it as Gaven was impressive.
