I have compiled a list of options at Forward that Arena could have chosen from MLS instead of John Wolyniec. I believe they are all more talented and all but Jeff Cunnigham are younger. First to review the MLS Forwards who are injured or "nicked up", so they are not available. Edson Buddle, Taylor Twellman, Mike Magee, Santino Quaranta. Now the categorized list in no particular order: TARGET FORWARDS: BRIAN CHING - Would have had 10+ goals last year if not for injury, led A-League in scoring 2 years ago NATE JAQUA - Had a decent rookie year, has very good skills for a big man and is quite young, considered one of the best prospects for US at Target Forward EDDIE JOHNSON - US U23, golden boot for most goals at U20 Championships, 7G 1A in 3 years in MLS FORWARDS: JEFF CUNNIGNHAM - 53G 39A in 6 years in MLS DAVID TESTO - US U23, A League ROTY '03 ALECKO ESKANDARIAN - US U23 CHRIS CARRIERI - 19G 17A in 3 years in MLS JAMIL WALKER - 4G in just 365 min in MLS, plus 1G 2A in '03 playoffs FORWARDS/MIDFIELDERS: EDDIE GAVEN - US U17 U23, one of the best young prospects in US Youth Teams ARTURO ALVAREZ - US U20, see EDDIE GAVEN above If you were wondering, Woly has 9G 3A in 5 years in MLS. Why would Arena pass on a development oppotunity for so many young forwards who are clearly better, for some MLS journeyman? He even has better choices if he is determined that it must be a target forward. Given this list, does anyone know what Arena is thinking?
