    He literally learned to speak fluent French to convince the OGC Nice board to give Vieira an offer.

    Yes, Lion. Thanks for pointing that out. I completely missed that.

    Louisville City won 6 straight after The Wave. Finished 7 points ahead of Pittsburgh. 5 games, 4 starts, 1 assist. Just saying...

    Stats aren’t always the telltale sign - it’s how a team plays and the chemistry shown. That record speaks for itself.

    Agreed. Looking at the 5 directly before his arrival; 1-2-2.

    Without having watched him play during that stretch, I am not sure that we know enough to determine what an underwhelming individual offensive output vs. a successful team winning streak means.
    I hope that your assumptions are correct that he must have played great and made the team better, but there are so many variables that could have contributed to the team's current (and/or former) form.

    Point of clarification.... Goals and Assists are not the end all be all determining factors of individual offensive output. Perhaps he tallied an underwhelming number of G/A but that is separate from whether his overall play was underwhelming or superlative.

    Yes, agreed. That's the part we are missing having limited information and no first hand observation. I would love to hear more about how he looked and what he contributed.

    Yeah. Maybe it was in spite of him. The team may just have enjoyed having a traffic cone on the pitch in his position. Felt like training so without the pressure of match play they went on a tear.

    Are you talking about Wallace starting during our two best winning streaks of the season? Those who weren’t able to watch those seven games would have to assume that he played stellar ball.

    Is that really the same? Maybe it is. I don't know. I personally don't equate a regular starter in a period coupled with the absence of a player that everyone has to defer to with a spark plug in a timely situation.
