REVOLUTION DP THREAT LEVEL-SEVERE... Milton Caraglio
So good things first...
Caraglio is young and a striker... this is the way the team has needed to go for quite a while and it's about damn time they did. Second... he's actually a DP... I mean seriously... we signed a DP! Third, I may be biased (being a Hammers fan myself), but the fact West Ham was taking a look at him excites me given their penchant for developing young talent. west Ham were reportedly willing to offer 5 million pounds (8.1 million USD) for the striker.
And now for some questions...
-Ok he's a striker but from 2007-2011 he made only 49 appearances with 11 goals, an average of 0.22gpg.
-Since his trial at West Ham it looks like he has only made 2 appearances.
-Does he like FieldTurf? More importantly does his knee like FieldTurf?
We are happy that we signed a young, attacking DP for sure, as it is certainly a step in the right direction but history tells us to be cautious with all Revs signings, so we will. We need to see him play and see what he's got before giving a thumbs up or down, obviously we wish Caraglio the best and hope to see him be wildly successful. Welcome to New England Milton.
Caraglio is expected to join the team on August 4th and be available for selection once his transfer certificate arrives... oh and if he can regularly score goals like this we'll really be happy...
