Dynamic!

That is the word you want to describe your forward, when Jozy is that, noone can stop him, not nigerian defenders not Bosnian... when he tries to post up, different story

Original post from MSantoine

You do realize he scored 7 goals in just 14 games. Thats a really good scoring rate for a striker. And throw in the fact that he came over midseason, and had to deal with injuries for a good portion and Id say he showed his promise to be an all star.

He's going to be a risk due to injuries until he makes it a year playing 30+ games but theres a reason he got an offer to go to EPL and then when that didnt work went to Eredivise and walked into their starting lineup


Yes I do and you do realize a guy like Wondo has eclipsed that that scoring rate throughout his entire career (89 goals in 161 caps) and is only on $600k. $400k for Agudelo seems like a lot.

Agudelo has loads of talent, he always has and that's why people get excited about him. My point is that he hasn't delivered the results on the pitch to live up to the hype. He's still young and in the NE set up this COULD be his breakout year or it could also be another ok year. There are comments in this thread about Agudelo being the MNT's best forward, better than Jozy, right now. I find that ridiculous. Will he be the best come November? Maybe but now? No way.

I want to see Juan get to NE and bust his ass to get back into the MNT picture. I am really happy Juergen hasn't called him into any camps recently, let him earn his way back into the picture (wish he would have taken the same approach with Shea).

Agudelo is not the type of player to "bust his butt"

Agudelo had 5 goals with chivas USA in 26 games. About a goal every 5 and so games. While Cubic torres in an arguably worst chivas team had 22 goals in 44 games, that's a goal every 2 games just imagine if Cubo was with the revs he would finish with more goals than games played, something like 30 goals in 27 games. That is Real Talent a guy that could do it anywhere.

No one thinks Dempsey is our best forward? He IS a forward...

I do. But I also think sometimes he doesn't play well with others. Meaning he is mismatched with the other forward. He is good for some goals though, and love his attitude. His field vision and decision making could be better at times.

If you are only going to look at goals scored for Agudelo, you'll never understand him as a player. He makes his teams better. Chivas was a great example of that. Look at the before, during, and after and you'll see why.

And stop basing arguments on wages. The MLS pay scale is completely out of whack. I thought that was obvious. It's not all about what you can do on the field, but a lot has to do with what can you bring off the field.

Show me one quote by a former coach of Agudelo who praised Agudelo's work ethic. Just one quote.

Show me one quote where a coach has stated that Agudelo doesn't have a good work ethic. Because I haven't seen one.

Agudelo comes off as a youthful slacker on his twitter and other media presentations. Burden of proof is on you.

somewhat quote "The US national team was preparing for a friendly match against Costa Rica and Ream, who has been a teammate of Agudelo with the Red Bulls for the past two seasons, wanted to see the 18-year-old forward produce the same fire and intensity with his MLS club as he did with the USMNT. The Red Bulls center back sensed that the young striker could give a lot more for New York.
So Ream asked Altidore, who moved to Europe after starting in MLS and has become an automatic selection for the USA, to have a talk with Agudelo about his training habits."

Another quote:

"Rumors spread that the then 18-year-old striker's training habits had come into question"
