to be honest - never thought he was a very good defender. aside from his speed... he loses his man.. a lot. not the greatest 1v1 either. his crosses might be slightly more consistent but that's about it.
In the prem. I wonder if in MLS, in a downgraded environment, he'd be a solid addition

he makes simple mistakes like forgetting about his man or poor giveaways. it's not about the quality of the league. it's just who he is as a player. besides, he'd be playing in tinnerholm's positions and i'm fine with tinny at his salary. he needs to work on his crosses, but he does a pretty good job at defending.

more like a backup for taty when heber inevitably gets injured.
Does he have a history of getting injured a lot before he came over here? He missed 3 games last season and 1 game so far this season due to injury, so that's not a whole ton.

Heber did, yes. I recall reading he was injury prone when it was announced he'd be coming. Could have swore he missed more than 3 games last season. Though maybe it was only 3 since he didnt' show up until a 3rd of the way through the season, so i could be imagining it being longer.

according to this peruvian site we made offer to jefferson farfan ( 35 yr old peruvian striker). he has other offers from timbers, montreal, miami.

As a proud Peruvian-American I say: don't believe a word of what you read off Peruvian soccer websites. They make stuff up for a living every single day. OTOH Farfan is ridiculously talented and would provide great creativity if he has anything left in the tank.

i tend to take all latin america sources with a grain of salt, at least at first. However for farfan it seems miami is the one most advanced:

is chanot leaving or something. this is like the third center back that we got linked to recently ( i think there was one from sporting and i thought there was another one). i also dont like these dudes ages, the first dude i remember was 33 and this dude 30 and per wiki this guy never really played for Benfica, he was loaned out to uruguay and argentina.

I don’t know much about him but I wouldn’t mind a Chanot upgrade.

perhaps ronny just wants a backup, not a replacement. ibby is still injured and sands could be going to europe before we know it.

granted, this guy doesn't seem like someone we should be aiming for.. backup or otherwise. not high enough level and not low enough age with potential.

totally agree. almost forgot we had tavvon. would much rather get him experience too than roll the dice on an old guy with proven lack of defensive ability.

i'm getting flashbacks of amagat and imagining this guy getting red cards and/or giving up a PK in a close game
