4.29.2015: [VIDEO] One Minute Breakdown of The Crew vs. Philly Game


Philadelphia keeper McCarty does some acrobatics to try to keep up with Kamara (Sam Fahmi/Massive Report).

Doing these one minute breakdown's of games from now on; Because who really has the attention or time to listen to me (or anyone) for thirty minutes. It's a little bit of a work in progress because my video editor kept cutting off portions of what I was saying. But, trying to keep them lighthearted and fun:

2.25.2015: Rivalry Snub

From Major League Soccer:


No Columbus vs. Chicago on the list, or on a backup list here. But, NYCFC vs. New York Red Bull can be considered the BEST rivalry even though they have never played a game? Is Major League Soccer retarded?

2.11.2015: Robert Kristo's Trial In Italy Successful

Crazy I can now call this place home #laspezia #cinqueterre #italy

The 6'4 Robert Kristo won't be heading in goals for the Columbus Crew this season, instead his devastating aerial ability (as mentioned by his new coach) will be on display at 7th place Serie B side Spezia Calcio.

In a way though, Columbus Crew can look at it (and Berhalter mentioned in a way he is) as an extended loan; as in most cases, eventually every American player ends up back in Major League Soccer.

Kristo won't be looking at it that way though.

And if there was one player not to bet against, it looks like this guy.

Kristo was confident that he was going to Italy, that his trial would be successful, and he would be signed. That's an excellent sign of his mental character. Very determined kid.

You hope for great success in Europe for a young American player such as Kristo. But, if he finds himself with the wrong coach or team in the future, Columbus may be an attractive option.

1.26.2015: Could Columbus Be In For Yura Movsisyan?

 
 
Major League Soccer website's transfer watch is saying there is a team making a move for Yura Movsisyan. The Columbus Crew may be out of international transfer spots, but could they be looking to incorporate some more firepower up front with a green card in hand.
 
If so, Movsisyan would be a delightful option. He's made the Russian Premier League look like an Indoor Soccer League with his strike rate there (44 goals in 82 overall games).




Yet, with English Premier League interest this past Summer, I doubt Spartak Moscow would let Yura go cheaply; Probably why the Major League Soccer side that made the offer was turned down.

Still if you were to go for broke, and wanted someone that could finish chances, Yura Movsisyan would be an excellent, green card target.

A sort of target that you could say "there you go, we are done with our offseason. Let's go win a trophy." But, I guess that depends on how ambitious Columbus Crew SC are in their first season rebranded.

**In other news, Juan Agudelo is also in negotiations with MLS again.

Not as interested in Agudelo. But, would like the Crew to be a little more aggressive and throw their hat in the ring for another player up top. I think the Crew are one credible striker away from a complete team.
