I really hope this one comes back to bite me in the ass but really, does RSL really think that Richie Kotschau is the answer to their defensive needs?
Nonetheless, Kotschau has been training with the club for a matter of a few weeks here recently and was signed to the club this week. He is being dubbed as a “major acquisition” by the press which leads me to believe that the front office is talking it up in that way.
I know they are trying to fill the three empty spots on their roster but getting old veteran players isn’t always the answer.
Other reports are saying that Kasey Keller will soon be in a RSL uniform real soon as their negotiations are almost done. Thing still could go wrong but it appears that RSL is hoping to spend some top dollar on a keeper to help out their woes.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Keller but I don’t see why on earth you would spend DP style money on a keeper in this league. There are too many decent keepers in this league, and in all honesty, I think RSL is fine where they are at with their keeper situation. Sure Rimando isn’t the best answer but he has experience that a lot don’t have.
This club needs someone in the midfield to control the pace of the game for the club. That is the answer they are looking for. Not in the net.
I really don’t get the RSL front office but I hope these two deals come back at me and surprise me with stunning form.
