RSL defender from Colombia says S.L. is 'my type of place'
Olave for MVP, President, coach and whatever else you want to throw in there.
Highlight of the season: Watching Chris Rolfe bounce off of him
while Olave shielded the ball out of bounds at Chicago.
It's too bad he had to miss the Houston game. I think we would have won, and
made a big statement if he had been in the line up. At least two of the yellow
cards he received this year were pretty soft, but what can you do? As long as we
have him for the playoffs, I think we will be in good shape.
Thanks for the interview, Michael Black. Olave has been brilliant this year.
He'll be missed this weekend for sure!
PLEASE KEEP OLAVE!!! I was really worried about the RSL defense when Pope left.
He was the anchor. Everyone else sucked, and if it weren't for Pope we would
have been in alot worse shape. But to me Olave has stepped up to fill that void.
He's big, He's strong, He's quick, just like Pope. Olave and Borchers have been
great signings for the club. They are doing a great job and keeping the pressure
off Rimando. Keep Olave at all cost!
Keep Olave in the SLC. Pay up MLS and RSL, the millions going around for the
likes of Beckham, Blanco and Angel, there has to be plenty of change for RSL.
And for a stand up guy like Olave. Why wasn't he at "Meet the Team"? Good thing,
otherwise my man-crush would have been exposed.
I'd be willing to sell Kreis and Mathis to enable us to buy Olave...
...that deal fell through.Mathis is all that is going to happen this
week.Olave is great...and won't last in MLS another year. Enjoy him
while he's here, and then he is off to Europe. (Spain)
Yeah, RSL definitely needs to step up and buy Olave. He is the type of building
block that could make out defense a presence for a long time. He and Nat
Borchers form the best central defensive duo in the league. If RSL can keep the
defensive nucleus and then build around Morales and Beckerman in the midfield,
the future is very bright.Message to the RSL FO: Fans like winning.
Keep it up and please don't let us down by letting players like Olave get
away.On another side note, have we heard anything about RSL being
able to sign a striker during the transfer period? I heard rumors about another
Argentine forward but nothing has happened yet. Lagerwey all but promised that
they would acquire attacking help and I will be disappointed if they can't get
oh yeah one more thing i love the fact that some of our players like here
i want to believe that it will be up to his team in Colombian and the MLS.
because if I was Garth and Kries i would be doing all i can to keep him here.
Love Jamison! I think you could make the argument that's he's the MVP of the
team (along with Nat) because their defensive presence has kept RSL in so many
games and allowed others to take chances. I too hope RSL does everything they
can to keep Big O.
Olave has been rock solid in the back four. Amazing player. I hope we find a way
to keep him here - Glad he likes UT too... Too bad he won't be playing against
Houston, thats a game we really need him in. Anyway - good article. Wish there
were more support for RSL like this in the media.
No way. RSL doesn't need Olave, they need a real defender. Just kidding. If I
was megarich, I would buy Olave for myself and rent him to RSL. That would ge
I think RSL needs to do whatever possible to keep Olave. He has impressed and
he has helped solidify the back line. I love his energy and effort and he's
young enough to be an anchor on the defense for years to come. I believe his
play is one of the big reasons for RSL's improved form. Best wishes Jamison!
