The Beaver Posted January 4, 2007 Share Posted January 4, 2007 Just wanted to point out one other side benefit--sort of--of DeRo staying in MLS: It does not hurt entirely to have a strong base of players playing in North America when it comes time to qualifying. We cannot always depend on our Euro-based players to come back for every game, not to mention injurie, and if the MLS can keep a chunk of TFC players and DeRo and Jazic and Serioux in good playing shape, I think we benefit. But Grizz's point is a good one: If DeRo doesn't up his game a notch or two, he might get passed by one of our young guns. I suspect if we play a 4-5-1 or a 4-3-3, he'll still see a good deal of time for the next few years. If Lensky and JDG2 decide to get on board and continue their development--along with Will johnson and JDG1 and Hutch and Peters--it might be tough to find a role for DeRo to play. At least as a starter. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
