2016 Philadelphia Union Player Review: Brian Carroll

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

2016 Summary: Brian Carroll entered the 2016 without much in the way of expectations, but the 35-year old career MLSer made more of an impact than many expected. Through five matches, Carroll unexpectedly became one of three players to play every minute of the season up to that point, and throughout the season continued to be a steady, albeit usually unspectacular, presence in the midfield whenever he was on the pitch.
