With the trade of Scott Sealy to San Jose (see previous post), the Wizards have roster room, cap room, allocation money and a Senior International slot available. I think it is clear that Peter Vermes has some plan in play, but what. Is there someone already on the way? Is it one of the rumored Hungarians?
Numerous names have already been brought up on Big Soccer. Of course it is a lot of wild speculation, dream players and who we don't want posts that make that site so much fun.
While it is rumored that he is being shopped around, I will join in that fun and say I do not EVER want to see Ruiz in a Wizards uniform. There have been plenty of Wizards players that I have not been fond of, there have been a few that I REALLY did not like, but he would be the first one I would boo anytime his name was mentioned.
I think it is more likely that we are getting another player from outside the league. Any player acquisition from in MLS and we would probably have to trade another player for them. We have nobody, well almost nobody to trade at the moment. Of course I thought that before Scott Sealy was traded.
What do we need?
Attacking mid - Carlos can play fantastic attacking mid for an average of 30 minutes every 4 games. We could really use an atacking mid but he would need to someone to pass to...
Target forward - With the exception of Trujilio, we have no size up front. Unfortunately Ivan has not proven to be the target forward/scoring threat we had hoped.
Well Peter, the joke is that you are always on the phone. I would say that is not far from the truth. I am hoping you are talking to someone that can deliver a strong target forward.
