Bradley Jr Goes to (no, not Hollywood) but Italy
« on: August 31, 2011, 11:21:37 AM »
From the BBC:

1111: United States midfielder Michael Bradley, the former Aston Villa loanee, has moved from Borussia Moenchengladbach to Chievo Verona, becoming the only American player in Italy's Serie A. Yes, it's quite quiet at the moment.

.....where he will sit on the bench, if he makes the game day squad. Bradely is a hard nose, low skilled player with an exceptional motor. He lacks the main ingredient for Italian football, he doesn't fall down and cry in pain when someone touches him.

Perhaps they confused him and Dempsey.  :005:

Well, somebody had to post that, and I'm not sure the Tiff Veterans ever cross over to this board.

not to compare talent wise to gatusso, but he is a similar player but scores goals. He will do well there I reckon.

I think he will play and do well in Italy. This isn't Gooch going to AC to be 4th choice CB but Cheivo Verona a team who finished 11th in 4th best league in Europe

Hope ya'll are right. I like the kid and never bought into that nepotism thing. I wish je had stayed in the Prem but who knows maybe they'll teach him to thread a pass.

I am just worried about him taking too many cards, his hard tackles plus the divers, floppers and all around cheaters in Serie A could be a problem
