But the wording is unclear whether he's signed with MLS yet.
That jackass better be back in MLS. He was the best offensive player at the 2004 MLS combine. I doubt dicking around with Darlington has done him jack.
i hope he's worth a permanent YI slot and a first round pick.
ah i see he's one of ellingers boys. at least that means he has a starting spot guaranteed, i, wonder if he's the mystery man from practice.
A first round 2007 MLS Supplemental Draft pick, which really means the 5th round of the draft.
The deal was for a 1st round Supplemental pick (equivalent of a 5th round pick) plus a YI spot. Not a bad deal assuming that he actually plays for RSL as he probably would have been drafted in the 1st round of the Superdraft last year if teams were not leery of his interest in playing in Europe. It still seems as if RSL needs a forward more than a defender (Broome) and a midfielder (Gregorio).
ah ok thanks for clarifying.
We have forwards. We have Kreis, Watson, Mathis, Dipsy, Washington, and Brown. What we don't really have are guys who can consistently serve good balls to those forwards. A forward isn't worth much without good service behind him.
We needed a defender/Broome because Pope'll be gone for a month starting now and the rest of our backline is guys that are injured (Dunseth and Pierce), inexperienced (Knowles), converted from another position (Kamler), prone to suspensions (Akwari), and Behncke (Behncke). I'd like a little more than that, please.
We needed a midfielder because, to be frank, no one's stepped up to be our a-mid. Kreis is better up top. Andy and Mathis can work the wings if needed. Really, we have two basically decent d-mids in Cutler and Kamler. Every other position forward of that is consisted of guys that can be shuffled to almost any given position on the attacking half. No one's stepped up to be our a-mid, and we certainly don't have two for a 3-5-2 like what we tried against San Jose.
The way I feel is that to complain about this team's forwards is like complaining that the TV is broken when the socket has burned out. It ain't the TV's fault that it ain't gettin' juice...
Gregorio would be a good signing
wheres he been playing??
According to the article Buffalo posted (from mlsnet); Gregorio has been playing in England at Darlington.
He is from Turlock, California and is a Bruin alumni.
He plays the midfield position which RSL needs bad.
Since he is an American, I think that he can come now as opposed to Aug.15 (Int'l transfer).
This looks like a great pickup for RSL!
So RSL has really spoken to him.
Thats makes me feel better.
So when is he going to sign??
Hopefully soon. He would be a good pick up for RSL.
He scored key goals last season for the Quakers and they definitely wanted him back. He's out of UCLA, and having a quality midfielder who can find Kreis will be a real pick-up. His experience in Darlo, by the way, was not a waste of time. He was a walk-on essentially at Darlo, and was given a month-long contract, which was renewed mid-season by the club, and they finished out of the playoffs on goal-differential. His background is Brazilian. I'd assume that playing in MLS will put him on BA's radar, which is why he came back.
Ellinger said on the radio this week that Gregorio was coming (this week).
Cross those fingers and toes.
