MLS Draft 2012

MLS Combine: Day 1 Commentary


The 2012 MLS Combine kicks off today in Fort Lauderdale as the nation's top college talent (and seven random international players) look to impress MLS coaches and boost their stock ahead of the 2012 MLS Draft.

The MLS website is live-streaming today's matches, but SBI will be providing live commentary on today's action, so please feel free to follow along here.

Enjoy the action (Commentary is after the jump):

    Arreola & Garcia impressing me so far on Prime. Ofcourse Mattocks too who seems on a different level than everyone. I like Perry & Chavez on Adipower’s defense. They are smooth on the ball. Perry was beat twice 1v1, once by Arreola, once by Mattocks, but otherwise has been very solid. He did just enough after getting beat to set the attackers off. Good right fullback prospect imo.


  • MC Pharaoh

    The commentators MLS has for the Combine who also do their podcasts are really sayin some really stupid things tbh..


  • MC Pharaoh

    Criticism of Perry was silly. The one guy was hounding him for being “beat” & he had a very good game. That was where that was pointed. Should have elaborated. Dont have a bitch fit next time.


  • JJ

    I agree, they are terrible. The play-by-play guy sounds like Obama. Can’t wait for Arlo.


  • David St. Hubbins

    Townsend looked good. Hoffman best player of the game. Combined well and scored. Rowe looked good. Int’l kids had some good moments… is it enough to overcome having to burn an int’l slot on them? Malluce looked good. Arreola may have solidified his position… took defenders on dribble and had some decent crosses.


  • David St. Hubbins

    OH yes and Silva was good too. Defenders… not so much aside from maybe Hedges but he just seems vanilla to me.


  • abc

    Question: last year there were at least three foreign players brought in for the combine (Cardozo, Plata, Estupinan), are there any this year?


  • Rick

    The Eurosnob was someone who couldn’t cut it at youth levels so he vents his shame by ripping on American players far better than him.


  • Murph

    Only 7 foriegners? They should open the floodgates for young guys that want to prove themselves in the US. I’m sure there are many more than 7 youngsters.


  • gigi

    Former England youth international Jason Banton, Glenir Garcia, Yuri Gorentzvaig, Kohei Yamada, Benjamin Ubierna, Emiliano Bonfigli and Aldo Paniagua. – Glanir Garcia played 2 games with cruz azul, he was born in 1989, Yuri Gorentzvaig i think is brazilian, and kohei yamada is japenese.
