Gio Dos Santos: From Barca to the Coca Cola League
If we could I'd like to talk about Gio Dos Santos for a moment. With the surprising announcement today (to me at least) that Tottenham have loaned the the 19 year-old Mexican international to Coca Cola Championship League side Ipswich Town aka The Tractor Boys I'm wondering what it would take for someone to take a chance on him stateside.
Less than a year ago he was the next big Mexican thing and scoring hat-tricks for Barcelona and now he's not good enough to stick it on the Spurs bench? Craziness. If anyone out there has a really good handle on what happened with him please share because I'm not sure if it's a Gio issue, a management issue or perhaps even a money issue that has sent him on his apparent downward slide.
So not to slight Ipswich Town but if he's playing there, why not play in Houston, at Chivas USA or one of the other clubs that has expressed interest in getting a known Mexican as a DP? The level would be about the same, he'd get loads of playing time and I'd recon he might put a couple of asses in seats. I dunno, just a few errant thoughts I had. Feel free to share your opinion on this if you have one.
