I was ready to write adu off, when he plays for the boys in blue he does more harm then good. Stupid penalties and dumb plays/passes seamed to be all he did last year. Saw him play for the US squad over during the off season (not for the U23 team) and was shocked to see him play well. I was pissed off since it seams like he doesnt care about the U.
Watching Freddy play the first game of the season I was pissed since he didnt seam to do a thing right and from all the people who have seen him play for his national team know he is a very good player... Then against Cuba and El Salvador he had 2 amazing games!! Meanwhile our Philly U took 2 losses when he was gone.
Seeing Adu cry after the game with Williams having an arm around him brings me a tiny bit of hope for freddy with the U. hopefully he has a fire under his ass and plays well for the Union. If he plays 75% as well as he does for the USA team it will be a huge help.
We have yet to see him play a stand out game for the Union, I was ready to write him off but it seams like he may be one of our last hopes. Lets Go Freddy!
1. Jack Mac start
2. Gomez sit, play 1 DCM or play Okugo, anyone but Gomez, cant keep up with ANY MLS player
3. Lopez needs a break, If Callif is back play with 4 defenders, Williams, Valdez, Calif and Albright (who I am impressed with)
4. put torres in a role where he doesn't need to track back on defense all the time, put him in a role where his job is to use his creativity to get the U some goals. ( Jack Mac makes great runs through the defense torres can feel him the ball better then anyone else)
What do you think about Freddy and what is your wish list?
