Unless you're Terrence Cody-sized, you are fast if you are a brother.

At least that's been my viewpoint on sports for my entire life.

That's putting it mildly. We definitely needed a different dynamic in that first Jamaica debacle, but Adu was not, and will never be the answer.

In Cody's defense.. He's probably still faster than white mountain sized men.

You can't talk about Terrence Cody and speed without showing this picture. The Andre Smith portion is just lagniappe.

Do I need to make this post soccer relevant?
I love Stu Holden

The last time DarylJames made a thread like this on the SB....Freddy was called up in the Gold Cup and played really well.

That means FA is going to go off in October during the WCQ matches.

Yeah it's all a conspiracy bro. It started with his coaches at DC United, then it continued with Kreis at RSL. Then finally he got his big break and transferred to Benfica. Of course, the 3 different managers he played under at Benfica continued the conspiracy as did the ones he played under on loan at Monaco, aris, and Beleneses. It's so ridiculous! Why don't they see how amazing he is? ?? Just wait until Fergie has a stroke and Bob takes the reigns at Man U he will buy Freddy and then hell score like 4 goals a game and everybody will see!!!


Are you retarded?



















I'm thinking 3 goals tops. Messi could score about 2 a game if he were on Man U. Freddy is better than him but not twice as good. 4 goals is pushing it just a bit.

Castillo yes, JFT no. Adu has not played very well when he's actually played.


Lol. Are you saying JFT has done more in a US jersey than Adu?

Probably because Torres has done slightly more than Adu in a US jersey, and that's saying something because Jose Torres has been wildly inconsistant for the USMNT.

Adu had one nice pass in the 2011 Gold Cup semifinal against big bad Panama.


AND he scored against Grenada in the 2009 Gold Cup.

He showed more in twenty minutes against Mexico in the final than JFT has in all his time put together.
He's been our most dynamic player multiple times.
He's not consistent, and I'm not saying he deserves a call up, but its revisionist history to say he hasn't done more than JFT, who has done zero.

I think Freddy deserves another shot. I wouldn't bet big money on him making the next WC squad though.
