    Does anyone remember the last time Jose Galvan played? I'm sure he'll be popping up on someone's milk carton any day now.

    With Galvan and Guevara in the lineup at the same time, I think you would see a bit more attacking play than the organized boredom we've been seeing the past few weeks.

    What harm would it be to start this guy next week? Granted he's not the greatest at coming back on defense, but didn't Bradley know this when he brought him over? Why was he brought here?

    Thank you!

    And he shouldn't have to come back on defense. That's not his job. That's what Pope and Jolley are getting paid to do. Maybe that's why nobody on this club scores goals anymore. Bradley refuses to let guys run riot on the attacking side of the field. It seems only Magee and Wolyniec are allow to spread their wings and go for the net with abandon. We need more of that.

    The way they're playing, offensively, is disgusting and a bore.

    This seems like the most likely scenario to me.

    Jesus man, do you think Bradley wouldn't play him if he truly wasn't garbage??? The guy played, he is just too slow out there. Why don't you want the best for the Metros, instead of these two Argentines??? I'm Greek, and I would love if we had a Greek guy on the team. But if he is garbage, send him to the A-League, I don't want him playing out there.

    Just a guess from the sidelines

    Just a guess, but Galvin and Forchetti must have been 5 or 6 on their local teams depth chart, otherwise they wouldn't have come here.

    So, it seems to me, guys that far down on the depht chart, can't make it in MLS.

    Forchetti loses concentration, and is out of position often.

    Galvan runs around and can't excute accurate throughballs.

    As far as I'm concerend I admire Bob Bradley for giving it a shot, but I say goodbye Galvan and Forchetti, I'll take some American rookies in their place any day

    Yeah, on a club knee-deep in expert practitioners of the throughball. And when you play once a month for ten minutes, it sure keeps your touch sharp.

    I'm sure Bradley will find some young talented Americans to take Galvan's and Forchetti's spots on the team for next year.

    Does anyone know how we sit in the draft for next year?? I think we traded some pics away.
