Some teams are defined by a key player or two, others by a system that lasts between coaches, in the Columbus Crew there is a team that was once a system/player team, but is now defined by its coach. No player sticks our as an anchor, particularly with their injuries. Robert Warzycha takes a little bit of tactics from his time with Sigi Schmid and supplements those with an attitude that is pure Crew - hard working team on a budget.

Legend to some, a man who in his prime fuelled dreams of a cloned brood of Carraghers all straining and screaming as they dragged the club to glory. To others a lately tarnished legacy of behind the scenes politicking, his local's influence and friends in the press helping him hang on to a starting role years after he should have joined Sami Hyypia in riding gracefully off into the sunset as a fondly remembered hero.

Anchor in midfield, the transfer I want to see happen

When the transfer window opens, it spells opportunity for headlines to be created. It is also a period where clubs and agents try to flocked off their players and to get into the market for new ones.

Roster Reset #11

The Fullback Files at related • 0 views

Almost across the line. United can add 6 more players before the roster spots fill up, and must add at least two to the salary budget roster by compliance day in order to fulfill the MLS roster regulations. Of course, it's impossible to tell (from the outside) just how much room remains under the cap, but I think it's fairly safe to say that we'll be adding two of the four remaining trialists and not pulling any surprise rabbits from Kasper-Payne's hat.

Still no left back, but the slight defensive midfield depth issue has been addressed with the signing of Brazilian journeyman Marcelo Saragosa. Given that Kitchen will surely miss time for Olympic qualifiers (and the big show in London if we qualify) and isn't exactly a sure thing as he steps into his first year in the role for which he's being groomed, depth was a concern.
