So all I know about him is he is a 22 year old striker that was a first round pick by KC last year but saw almost no action. He's training and probably going to be loaned to St Mirren of the SPL (they aren't very good). Any chance he becomes a prospect or is he a b team friendly guy at best?

So if he can't play for KC and is going to play for St. Mirren (who are a bad team in a league much worse than MLS), why would you even think about him turning into a prospect now with the potential of earning a callup in a b team friendly?

Right now Conor O'Brien and John Anthony Brooks aren't even getting callups.

In MLS, guys like Jack McInerney who score goals aren't getting called up.

Uhm, Dom Dwyer is English. Or is he a U.S. citizen as well?

I've never heard of him. But 22 year old first round strikers always get me to perk up and try to find out more. I just don't know anything about him and was wondering if any midwestern MLSers did

Does anyone think he has gotten better? Or has he stayed the same quality/form since 2012? Or when he lit it up with Adrian Heath in Orlando in the USL?

I think he has. He deserves more looks in the future but thats obviously predicated on form. I dont know if its a good or bad thing Bruce sent him home. Maybe Vermes wanted one of his three back for MLS games. Or maybe he wasnt good enough. I'd lean towards the former but you never know.

I liked what he brought to the mix and was bummed to see him leave and not have a chance to play with the upgraded roster. Arena shifted focus from just looking at guys to putting together the best group to win. Imo, at that point the internal competition for minutes is minimized and it's time to get everybody on the same page. There's been a lot of speculation as to agreements already in place with clubs, who knows. I think he saw enough in Dwyer and Rowe to deem them worthy of being in the mix in the future...but now is not the time to have Dwyer slamming into guys to state his case in an adversarial training environment with Jozy and Deuce.

Too bad we didn't get to see what he could do with service and combo play from MB and Nagbe and one other starting forward.

Good find Sam Hayes. Guess I was right to question his ability 5 years ago.

One thing I will say about Dwyer he should once and for all end any future callups of Wondo and Alan Gordon. Thats reason to celebrate right there. Regardless of personal preference at forward its nice to know we know have Jozy, Deuce, Wood, Morris, Dwyer that all are capable forwards at the international level. Then there's also Arjo, Boyd, Agudelo, & Green that dont embarrass themselves. Its nice having a group of 9 guys that you wouldnt be mad if they were on the pitch. Yes some are better than others but if any of them were listed as starting up front most people would be ok.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
