I love the way DC United gets the benefit of the doubt with its recent signing of Danny Szetela. I am not sure what I think of the deal, personally. I think need to know what salary he’s on before I can figure that out.
But my point is that if this were a team like Colorado or Dallas making this move, I suspect fans (especially DC fans) would be howling laughing at Team X retreading Szetela. Instead, because it’s DC, everyone gets on board with it.
Anyway, it’s just something I noticed.
PS: Speaking of Americans in Europe who you likely forgot about, let me reintroduce you to Hunter Freeman, who scored this 50-yard screamer… erm, mumbler for his club IK Start in Norway.
