probably im underrating him a bit about his combo in ep/da, he looks sooo good using his turns, godly level when moves his body in small spaces. Is soo difficult steal the ball from his feet when he puts him at back, the defenders cant with him because turns his body as nothing, probably deserves a orange number there, dont think there is another player like him. About his da im kinda skeptical, he can provide nice controls time from time, but i think the 81 value is enough for now, he use his agility to mantain the position of the ball not at all by the control in his dribbling. Also he looks a competent passer, and lately showed nice tactical knowledge, even the last match played the end of the match lsb and was ok - yeah, he didnt much things, but he played simple and did his job - great burst in his runs, just must be more aggressive in his style.

he is sooo talented with the ball but he needs to be more aggressive with it, needs have much more determination because barely takes risks in the pitch because he is pretty much well surrounded about what an a modern amf needs - quick, good passer, agile, etc - for sure he needs higher da and ep i was so harsh with those numbers as i'd say, he has a great control and really fluid to make him a great player. To summarize, i'll decrease his ment, agg higher da and ep and smth to keep on eye is his balance, lately is showing at least be good using his body in 1-1 situations and makes more tricks with the ball to deserves more s cards.

I was impresed too,yesterday he showed everything you said but at the same time he had two choices to make an assist but he missed because of a poor decision making and i want to ask:that happens frequently or just a one match thing?

is a constant of him, the fans hates that lack of making decision, he has all to be a good smf/amf, he is quick, agile, great technique, but his mentality and aggressiveness is really bad, makes me remember to luciano acosta, pretty similar his level and style, but imo l. rodriguez has worst mentality. Even he is capable or making good passes despite of he lacks of power and some passes are intercepted by his low sps.

He is the only in the team who tries something to the team, playing as an hybrid smf/amf from the left side to the center, trying to carry the ball or build up with his mates, he has class and probably he is the only player who can create danger with his passes and his dribbles but besides that he must be more incisive, yeah i sound repetitive but is true and i want to remark that.
He could have great values in technique with a super low value in ment and worst agg to make him prone to get away from the box also his sps/lps/kp are damn awful everytime, barely is in the 70, he really needs to be close to his mate do an assist.

I did small tweaks here based in what i said in the past, what a shame his low mentality and making decision, he has a great ability and tactically is quite good.

Oriello do you think acosta would be out of DC united? I'd say this because titi rodriguez is quite a clone on his style :lol: both are reaaally but really similar prototype of player, cant see working together in the team, dont know if the coach likes to play with two amf players although that titi could play as lsmf but his defensive work isnt good to help the lsb.

Acosta is on final year of contract, and they seem more interested in getting him sign new long term deal (apparently he's been making noise on social media about a raise), so he most likely will stay - depends on how quick they can re-sign him to new deal - how much time he waits and thus becomes cheaper for another club to bid (free next winter). Right now only middle-east interest, but I think he has the talent to play in EPL/Serie A at some mid table team he would be useful.

DC played 4-1-4-1 at start of last season, all AMFs ahead of young DMF Durkin, they changed to 4-2-3-1 when Rooney came (SS), and Arriola was more often at RB instead of RMF/right AMF then, and Acosta took sole centre AMF role (wanders to wings though), Asad was on left and Segura got more time on right, Zoltan Steiber seen more bench - to me Steiber is the one that will have to be moved, he makes 2nd most money behind Rooney but is not an integral part of the team just a nice piece to bring on - it makes sense to move him free up his wage and give it to Acosta basically in a new deal.

It also depends if they get Asad back on loan or sign him, DC have a lot of AMF type players in the team (at least 6!? Arriola though is experimented at RB) and the 4-2-3-1 was the formation that shot them up the table, I can only assume they will only have 3 attacking midfield spots available, but if they can't get Asad back and move Steiber, that is only 4 and Arriola is maybe at RB, so only 3 players remain as options. So right now both Rogriguez and Acosta would play, only thing is if this 21 year old can immediately transition and be dependable for whole season.

Minor update.

Very useful player for DC this season, mainly a winger who likes to tuck in and operate centrally, but also been used as a wing back in the 3-4-3/5-4-1 where he has been generally competent if not great defensively - forgets to cover his space sometimes - but his workrate is good in defensive phase.

Think his standout has been his dribbling, able to retain really well and make progress up the pitch - I see his DS better than Acosta - really able to be a threat despite a lack of real pace - just his finishing let him down sometimes when he did all the hard work. His through balls are good, he does not do it too often, but is capable at threading a ball to put a teammate in over 15 meters.

https://youtu.be/-TFMKFgXy3Q?t=88 his pass starts it, in the end he finishes neatly for a goal
https://youtu.be/anckSw05nlM?t=140 pass - been good at these kinds of threaded passes, not outright a *Passing style player, but when the chance is there, he can execute

Match commentators noted that he goes missing for long periods of time vs Cinnciati, it was mentioned after scoring that he needs to "show up more".

https://www.blackandredunited.com/2019/ ... -plata-mls nice article;

"Rodriguez arrived with a reputation of being able to press without the ball very well, and there’s data pointing to his success in that category this season. His 2 tackles per game are only behind Russell Canouse, and it remains puzzling why United wouldn’t commit to high-pressing more often with him and Paul Arriola both in the lineup.

Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Rodriguez only produced 0.8 key passes per game, a sign that for all his unquestionable technical ability, he still needs to see a larger number of options when on the ball, and to be less deferential."


JoeWillmore / fan comment;
For a guy who is new to MLS, new to this team, and very young, I thought he did well. Lots of ups and downs but overal, talented and worth bringing back. I feel about Titi like I felt about Lucho Acosta when we first got him—clearly talented with tremendous potential. But he’s not as moody as Lucho and he’s a better defender—less likely to coast during part of the game.

I moved him back, not sure on his squad number.

No tweaks, as up to date as I could make.

I would only watch Stamina/Response and ST, he puts in a solid shift many matches in tracking/dirty work and I may have not given him justice here, both might be 2-3 points better.

ST, he could be better here, would need to see more to know, but looks really comfortable/competent in hitting awkward shots.


Bad news for DC, unable to reach an agreement to keep him, lost almost all the mojo players, spiralling back into irrelevance real quick.
