Got it -- I really meant to say, "Zlatan without the goals"What I meant was...a less quotable Zlatan who doesn't score nearly as much would almost certainly have been our best player last season. The guy was pure insanity for LAG. I don't know if Diego Costa is the answer (I doubt it), but I would snap your hand off for a 'less-good Zlatan' at this point.
he already had off field business links (coffee shop i think?) with dc united. I think basically they had dibs.If he really wants to come to MLS and we didn’t bother making a bid that’s a shame.
He's super soft and has attitude problems. No hustle in him either. Glad we weren't in the running.If he really wants to come to MLS and we didn’t bother making a bid that’s a shame.
But that description sounds a bit more like what Ronny wants from his wingers vs the wingers we have targeted in the past.Sounds like he's not necessarily a goal-scorer but has a high work rate and contributes defensively. Seems a bit of a different profile than the wingers we have typically targeted.
Cervi, Fountas, and Santiago Rodriguez would be an entirely new front three. Heber, Castellanos, ITS, Medina for depth. I have a feeling that's the kind of acquisition set we need to expect. A high floor medium ceiling team.
Yup, and not really complaining. Seems well regarded by Benfica fans who I've seen annoyed that he doesn't get more minutes. Raving about his work rate. The kind of guy that would make us really annoying to play against. So long as we have a consistent goal threat at the 9.But that description sounds a bit more like what Ronny wants from his wingers vs the wingers we have targeted in the past.
