I'm waiting for a Jeff Jesser take on what Quintaro has done with MN United so far. Last night he scored his 10th goal, which moves him into the top 10 in the league. He has accomplished this, along with 6 assists, in only 16 games. I think Quintaro is the kind of player Jeff has been harping on them to sign from the beginning.
I have surprisingly watched a fair amount of Loons soccer this year and he is a real difference from the kind of player they typically sign. With my limited knowledge of the game he looks like the best player out there for either team almost every game. A sure sign is what happened last night. An LA player got so frustrated by him that he grabbed Quintaro and threw him down from behind, drawing a yellow card. That shit means you have residence in the other guy's head, no matter what the sport.
United added two more players that are supposed to be around the same level. They just joined the team.
When you have good players that aren’t particularly good leaders, their coaches or managers will say that they “lead by example.” It’s a polite way of saying they don’t lead.
