    Good finish though!

    Nice goal, and yeah it must be annoying for the players when theyre preparing their offside trap etc. So many lines.

    funny that you mention speed and that american pitch, the thing is, on artifical turf, people can run faster, especially the really quick ones like Adu...

    No offence to the American ML but he really needs to get snapped up by a big Premiership or European club so he can learn the particulars of playing in the CL. His opponents may not be the best at the moment but technique is obvious to see no matter who you line up against.

    Definitely one of the hottest prospects in the world today. What's his best position? Is he what you'd call an out-and-out striker or is he more support striker?

    He wouldnt be able to hack it in the Premiership. Its too physical for him.

    Isn't Adu really full of himself?

    Iv seen clips of news reporters in america sayin how much he boasts etc.

    I don't like that in players when they believe theyr own hype.

    if you were dubbed the next pele, were in a commercial with pele, were the highest paid player in the league and some of the players could be your dad, i think you would have a big ego too.... all players must have confidence or they will end up being avg

    even if it is "just MLS", magnificent strike, beautiful run and great technique.

    i haven't followed his story or how he is doing, but that video is one banger.credits to adu! :applause:
     
  22. i dont think chelsea, probably inter milan

    i see him as the future martins, he has to improve alot more to get in europe though.

    OMG what a pitch. :lol:
    The MLS better get green pitches where on can really see where does the box start and finish.

    At least it should be easier to signal offsides.

    but a nice goal by Adu.

    His size. Look how tiny he is. As skillful players like him always get battered in the Premiership.

    Thats the way English defenders work. If you cant beat them, you literally beat them.

    quite the opposite. he was here in holland for the wk under 17 and he was the most relaxed out of all of the interviewed players. really cheerfull and open, just having fun playing football. he would play with the kids that came watching to the trainging sessions. i really hope he joins psv, he can grow here without to many media attention.

    He cant come to a big team straight away.No work permit will be granted plus he cant develop his full potential at teams like United,Chelsea or Inter Milan.I think goin to Holland would be a good option for him,I know PSV has good american connections and it would be good for him as DaMarcus Beasley is there.
