The Kansas City Wizards may have found the cure for their terrible offense, or at least they hope so.
The Wizards have signed Josh Wolff, who makes his return to MLS after spending two seasons with German club 1860 Munich.
Wolff joins a KC offense that has managed just 11 goals all season, second-fewest in MLS this season (second only to San Jose).
KC coach Curt Onalfo will be hoping Wolff can duplicate his goal-scoring success from his first stint with the Wizards, when he netted 27 goals in four seasons with the Wizards, including a pair of 10-goal seasons (2004-2005). Wolff compiled 59 goals and 35 assists over the course of nine seasons spent with the Chicago Fire and Wizards.
Is Wolff the answer to the Wizards’ offensive problems? Those who watched Wolff struggle mightily for the U.S. national team in friendlies against England and Spain would probably disagree.
What do I think? I don’t think Wolff alone is going to help Kansas City’s offensive woes. He is 31 and has lost a step that he probably couldn’t afford to lose. He will help the team somewhat, but he alone isn’t going to turn KC’s offense into a dangerous unit.
