So glad I chose Wil Trapp for most Improved. He's been pretty great to start the season. Him and Higuain have bossed together in midfield.

Here's some stats: All from Tempo Free Soccer(really great stats guy)

4.5 tackles per 90- 5th in MLS after Chara, Laba, Gaddis, and Bradley

7th in usage rate

Averages 79.8 passes per game for

11.2 long balls per 90 with a 92% completion rate

He'll most likely be at the U21 camp in a week and a half. He will be at the 2016 Olympics if he keeps it up. Maybe might get a callup after the WC.

Trapp and Yedlin were the only 2 at the u20s that really stood out to me. People say Cropper played well but too many soft goals for me. It will be nice if Trapp is his generation's Michael Bradley and in 5-6 years we are arguing who to pair with him at CM like we do with Bradley now

been in love with Trapp since the u20's WC and qualifying myself. But I think Trapp is not a Bradley. BRadley is a get the ball knock it forward on your feet kinda guy. He doesn't want to pivot with the ball, he wants to advance. Trapp is always looking to pivot and stop wtih teh ball. HE's more pirlo in that sense.

Good point Rey, Trapp is more of a passing #6 maybe in the Arteta mold for the way he plays with Arsenal. Trapp is very calm and smart and positionally disciplined. Bradley is more running around causing problems and pressing the defense with his endless effort and hustle, as well as making those great late runs into the box. More of an advanced CM in the new 4-3-3 model where Trapp would be the CM who stays back and cycles the ball around.

Wouldn't be crazy to see Trapp and Bradley together in 2018.

Pretty sure that in 5-6 years if Trapp is on that level, there won't be an argument of who to pair him with. Bradley will only be 31. So that is who we will be pairing him with.

I want to see that NOW (discretion advised, by now I mean after Trapp dazzles in the league a few more times, then goes onto cheap cups like the off season gold cup, or maybe maybe even the copa america, or the olympics qualifying and tournament itself...then THEN have trapp shadow bradley around)

I'm all for seeing Trapp and MB as soon as possible.. He makes great quick decisions and his passing is sharp...killer combo. I'm really looking forward to watching him play in SJ this Sunday.
