Okay, so DC got Troy Perkins back. That’s fine. He’s an upgrade over the pu-pu platter we have back there last season.
Fred is staggeringly overrated so I don’t mind losing him so much. If Fred wasn’t Brazilian, he’d be down in the USL with other players of his ability.
That said, right now DC has one MLS-caliber central midfielder (Simms), one unproven and apparent malcontent (Szetela), and a non-entity known as Brandon Barklage.
DC better have something(s) else up its sleeve or else they’ve collectively lost their minds over there. That first round pick along with Fred and the cash seems like highway robbery to me by Philly.
As of right now, United doesn’t have a pick until the 4th round of the draft. I guess United expects cheap and/or cap-protected talent to simply fall from the sky like meatballs or Drogba going up for a header.
I wasn’t planning on drinking on the bus up to the draft. I may need to rethink that plan.
