Not sure where Factman is these days and don't really want to know but with Freddy, I have no doubt that Philly will run away with the MLS Cup.   079.gif

That being said, at the time that Freddy signed with MLS he had offers from some big Euro squads, Real Madrid I think. Had he gone there he might have learned how to be a complete football player. The lad is good with the ball at his feet but the concepts of helping out on defense and keeping the ball under physical pressure have eluded him.

Factman - complete & utterly useless drivel.  So glad we have a competent forum to support the team on.

Freddy - its been said that it takes approx. 6 months to acclimate to the League.  Hopefully in the playoffs we can get a glimpse of what Adu has; next season should prove a lot.  Just glad he's on a team where he'll get an opportunity to play.
