I enjoyed watching Johnson's loyalty to his teammates. He never hesitated
to step into the line of fire for an RSL player. The best moments of any game,
in my opinion, are watching how players respond when teammates come under fire.
Good luck WJ.
I think these moves had to be made. All three of the big moves (WJ, Olave, Esp)
were because of the cap and related to performance.I think we are covered on
Johnson and Olave's position. I am worried about who they get for the new
forwards and if Morales re-signs. Do we want him too? He isn't his old
Sad to see these guys going--and that includes Jonny Steele for me as well--but
it's clear things were stagnating, and of course sometimes you have to give
up a player like Will Johnson that you would prefer not to, for a hopeful
Losing Will Johnson will be painful for me. Olave was fantastic (but I do think
he is breaking down too often to keep) and Espindola will be missed but I can
live with it. But I will miss Will and the fact that you knew he gave every
ounce of his effort every game. A true professional and someone that I loved to
watch. It would be as if the Jazz traded Hornacek back in the day.
Not the main cog, but someone who made everyone else better around them.
I think they need a forward, so go out and get Lampard from Chelsea, he is at
the end of his contract and has stated he would come to the MLS, we now have
money for DP.
Painful to see these guys go.
This isn't going to end well and rarely does. . .Sometimes the money guys
are better left under the bus such as this time. Sometimes I wonder if someone
pays these guys money to mess things up!
