Inevitable Cliches of American Soccer Vol. 1

FreddyOut

1. Eddie Johnson will not make the bench.
2. Second-tier leagues are their own worst enemies and will always implode.
3. Freddy Adu will be passed around Europe like a joint at a Phish show.
4. DaMarcus Beasley will be injured regularly as long as he stays with Rangers.
5. I will use Helvetica Bold for a vaguely snarky photo caption.

I'm setting myself up for a monumental let-down by obsessing over the obvious perfection of Adu to NY.

L.A. Galaxy is the best option. Why did LA win the west after a terrible year and should of won the MLS Cup but chocke. Bruce Arena is perfect for Adu and Galaxy as well. Open your eyes people, Adu must come back to MLS and must join Galaxy one way or the other. Adu wont come to a sucky team or low money, it has to be Galaxy or Seattle or a team oppening a new stadium

FF&SS, would you rather have Adu than Henry?

Of course. I have an active dislike of Henry, and a ridiculously pro-American bias. Put the potential price tags into the equation, and On-Ree can keep his ball-slappin' ass right where he's at.

I think Henry would probably create more buzz and more excitement. Adu would probably be labeled as a retread and a failure, which let's face it, up to this point, he is. Adu could probably create more long term success, cuz he is only 20 (we think).

Interesting note, according to Freddy's Wikipedia page he is now on loan at FC Porto.

After reading his twitter on the reg, I want nothing to do with him in NY. He is obviously way out of touch with reality and his own (lack of) ability.
