He had a play the other night that reminded me of why he's not going anywhere soon, despite all of the young prospects in MLS. There was a play when a Colombian player was running just outside of the penalty box and was looking at putting in a cross. Goodson was running stride for stride with the attacker then slid in to try to block the cross. The player didn't cross it, but Goodson was athletic enough to bounce straight back up from the slide and keep stride with the attacking player. A lot of US fans just don't seem to know much about him. He's not your typical 28 year old defender playing in the Norwegian league. Goodson is a very long 6'4" and is basketball athletic. There is a reason he scores on corners. He may end up being more dangerous from set pieces than Gooch and Boca. Kaiserslautern, Odense BK of the Danish league, and Gent of the Eredivisie have had offers rejected for Goodson. I can't remember if the team or Goodson rejected the offers, but I think both have rejected offers. They are being rejected because his contract runs out this winter and he is trying to shop around like Onyewu did in 2009. Look for Goodson to land at a club that no one expects right now. With his talent, athleticism, and no transfer fee he should find a club in one of the top 5 leagues or a top half team in a second-tier league (Gent would have been a good destination for him by that standard). With new experience against better teams (possibly playing in Europe) and incredible athleticsm, he may hang around longer than most fans expect. Gonzalez, Ream, and Opara are all great prospects. To get playing time, they will really have to overperform to take Goodson's spot.
