Freddy Adu, FK Jagodina

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 14, 10:58



No one refers to Adu as the "teen phenom" anymore. It gradually dawned on the non-football media that someone touted as a soccer sensation will not necessarily score eight goals every game. Admittedly MLS, eager to get value for its money, at first hyped Adu as something he clearly couldn't yet be. The youngest ever American to play a major league sport quickly found out that wily, seasoned defenders could be quick to get physical, and were not prepared to be stooges in some Roy of the Rovers fantasy league. However, since his move to Benfica, Adu has shown improvement, particularly at an international level. What I am confused is how both sets of stats have missed out on one of his better aspects, his passing. Adu has always been able to perform precise, creative and unpredictable passes and is not as individualistic as everyone makes him out to be. Oddly, both sets of stats make him out to be a prolific goalscorer for his position. Although he accumulated high goal tally's in th MLS, he's shown something of a wane in his accuracy and proficiency of late. However, 2 goals in 11 games isn't exactly poor for someone who plays as a wide man. The first post also makes him out to be rather slow in his reactions, on the contrary, his over-eager nature as a kid made him react really quickly to loose balls much like Theo Walcott used to. However, the biggest aspect I'm confused about is that both posts seem to suggest that he's got a good ball control, and that simply isn't true. When dribbling he gives the ball away frequently and hasn't shown the skills he showcased on "Late Night With David Letterman".

What's going to happen to such a great footballer? Do you guys think he'll ever reach what he's supposed to touch, wich was supposed to be glory?

Could do. He's one of the few American players with natural technical ability. Should be given more of a chance at Benfica. Or he could hand in a transfer request so he can go to a top flight team that will play him. He's still young. Hopefully we'll see him at the Gold Cup, but I doubt it.

People gon' be people. They gon' lie, they gon' cheat, they gon' steal, but as long you get yours, you keep it moving.

amazing to think he's 23 now. and this boys and girls, is why you should never pay attention to hype. In fact, generally, ignore the media concerning sports.

If you don't put effort into your post, i won't put effort in my response.
