  1. Best hair on the team.
    but does he play a position or is he just a general utility defenseman of last resort.

  2. Based on his play last year, he’s semi-serviceable as a D-mid, and we need depth at that position, as Nogueira gets injured, Edu may get a call-up, and Carroll is 34. In his little time as a fullback last year he was pretty atrocious.

    • Old Soccer Coach says:

      His pressuring routes when DCM were not straight at the target, but circular, as though running to attack before identifying the target.

    • To where will Edu be called? Hopefully Scotland in the summer as Rangers gain promotion.

  3. Section 114 (former) says:

    Yawn.
