  1. Joao Plata is only 5’2″ and has been pretty successful for RSL. so height, at least as a midfielder, is not a real big challenge. But a British pundit remarked, when asked about Chelsea buying 20 y.o. and 6’4″ Matt Miazga, when so many other young center backs were available: “I’ll answer that with the famous quote from Red Auerbach;”You can’t teach height!”

  2. only in the states would a headline make a mention about height, smh……D.C. United is reportedly nearing a deal to add 21-year-old, 5-foot-3 Luciano Acosta on loan from Argentine club Boca Juniors. If the kid can play, who gives a sh*t how tall he is. Ignorance is bliss I guess…

      • Matt…thx. I wasn’t aware that DCU was in the states. Guess i’m in the wrong blog…haha.
        ignorance, what else can I say…
