Agudelo discusses his move to Chivas USA

Comments

  1. I dunno, seems like it takes injuries to force Backe into playing a lineup he should have tried long ago. This is the second extremely talented player that he failed to utilize. It’s like he’s paid a bazillion dollars to stand around the sidelines and have bad hair days, the very least the dude could do is, you know, learn his own $&%^#@ roster.

    I can understand the frustration and despair. We have become the Washington Redskins of Major League Soccer.

  2. This is a travesty. RBNY doesn’t know how to nurture talent. This young man has talent and flair. He looks great on the field. Supple brown muscles straining against his shirt, sweat pouring down his wahboard abs.

    Oh, yes, yes, YES!

  3. Everybody has an opinion. Yours are all wrong. Also? No reason to capitalize “iambic pentameter.” But it’s been a long time since high school, I guess.

  4. seems like he wanted away from RBNY but not away from NY/NJ. I would have liked agudelo for shalrie joseph.

    it also sucks going to chivas who have got to be the least legitimate team in MLS.

  5. Kind of overdramatic, don’t you think? I can see identifying with Agudelo as local, an academy product, etc. but how are you identifying with Henry? Just curious, because there may very well be other players that you can identify with, for example, Lade (academy product) or Meara (local kid who went to a local college) or Lindpere, who is unarguably hardworking and dedicated. What are you looking for?

  6. Agree Conrad. Any athlete who doesn’t speak in Iambic Pentameter should just keep his mouth shut #sarcasm

  7. No longer a RB supporter. Apart from Henry I can’t identify w/ team. I am now a random MLS fan w/o a team. Glad to leave Backe & Soler behind

  8. How was he inarticulate. That was a very solid interview if you ask me. He seemed to speak well and cordially about all involved in the process. Maybe a little to focused on his own development rather than helping Chivas win games, but lets be real, agudelo does not want to stay in MLS any longer than need be and is looking to get himself to Europe. His goal is to improve himself as much as possible and really become the class striker many of us believe he can be.

  9. How is he being inarticulate? And did he say anything bad. He said he would rather be in New York, but to grow this was the best thing for him. Went on to thank the club for helping him grow.I think he did himself a big favor by acting like a mature professional.

  10. Good for Robin Fraser,…this is a good move for Chivas. While I am disappointed to see Juan move on, I am thinking that Pearce will help the Red Bulls. Having the left sided player may allow Lindepere to move into the middle permanently.

    Good luck to all.

  11. Easy to be uncharitable about inarticulate athletes. But they guy is just a kid. Still, he doesn’t do himself any favors by speaking out loud on camera.

  12. To many Me’s & I’s in that interview and not enough us and teams for my liking. I do understand his point of view, and a a Red Bull supporter- wish him luck.

  13. Please move this team to San Diego. Now they have a a face to the franchise.

    Club Deportivo San Diego….CD San Diego….The perfect name and location.

  14. Fraser is putting together a nice squad. I don’t think Califf is better than Heath Pearce though. Pearce has come into his own the past 2 seasons.

  15. Wow! I’ve never heard Juan Agudelo interviewed before, and he impressed. He showed a level of perspective and care in the way he discussed things that many athletes never attain.
