    Out of complete randomness, but how about we swing a deal with our old league chums the Metros to get Ross Paule here? He's not quite the exact #10 type of player, but he is a more-than-decent attacking midfielder that can make quality passes in the attack and often threatens opposing defenses when involved in an attack. I dont think Metro would miss him too much either seeing that they have been using him out of postion at defensive mid in favor of Williams and Mathis who will more than likely still be avaibale for that spot next season. If Paule could regain the form he had with Colorado 3-4 years ago when he was their main attacking midfielder and before his injuries, I think he'd be a good investment for our attack next year...thoughts?

    How about the news just circulated courtesy of Soccer America Confidential:

    "A few players of Dutch extraction are fairly serious about coming to MLS, and U.S. international midfielder Earnie Stewart, 33, is just one of them.

    When left back Arthur Numan, 32, withdrew his name from national team consideration two weeks ago, one of the reasons he cited was a desire to play in MLS or the J-League when his contract with Glasgow Rangers expires next year...

    A source says Numan has already spoken unofficially to representatives of New England and D.C. United..."

    What about getting the leg up in the competition and leasing Joe Madden's last years' bus?

    Hmm, Rivaldo reportedly also retired from National Team duty...

    ( Waiving white flag) this is not atroll post. You guys are looking for a creative midfielder, what about Chacon? He has genius in his feet and a vision to create plays. I would have loved to have picked him up during the dispersal dradt. Why aren't the revs using him?

    I think Stewart would be an obvious upgrade from any of the mids the Revs are currently fielding, save Ralston. I think he could provide a little versatility that the others (even Ralston) seem to lack. He can pitch in in a defensive mid role, a flanking attacker, and to a certain extent as a playmaker. Bring him on!

    I've been passing time during recent Revs matches fantasizing about Ralston teaming up with Joe-Max Moore on the right side attack. Several years on, he remains the all-time best revs player, IMO.

    If only we could throw JMM in the mix...

    If that could be anymore inaccurate, you would have spelled his name wrong.

    Of what i have seen of him he does have vision, what he lacks is defensive skills. What i would do is sign Dany pena who is a great d-mid and would take that roll. Being perfectly honest your current set-up has you at the bottom of the table so anything you do can only be an improvement.
