Just an Observation

I will get to my eulogy of the Union’s 2011 season some time this week.  It may wait until after I participate in the season-ending YSA Report podcast (shameless plug).

I was trolling through the US Soccer site to see the full roster for the Men’s U-23 team that is going through Olympic qualifying.  The news came out that Union players Jack McInerney, Amobi Okugo, and Sheanon Williams were joining the squad following Union’s loss to Houston Dynamo.  I was curious to see who the Union trio’s peers would be.  The page is a standard roster listing, with information such as height, weight, date of birth, and club team affiliation.  It’s that category that got my attention when I got to the bottom of the page and observed that Sheanon is listed as “unattached.”  That doesn’t sit well with me at all.  Union need to fix that immediately, if not sooner.  He needs to be a staple of this team, up until the point that a bigger club recognizes his abilities and snatches him.  Get it done, Union, get it done.

    Can’t imagine Sheanon not being with the Union. They need to figure that out! Someone will snatch him up in a second and where will our defense be? This is the kind of stuff that I don’t understand….you can’t give a player $42,000 a year and exspect him to plays just about every game the way he did. They really need to up his salary and pay the kid what he is worth. Get this done Union and get this done fast!!!

    I really do not want to see Wiliams on another team. He is one of the three best players on the Union based on game action and versatility.

    Obviously he is underpaid. A free transfer to another MLS team or overseas is not good for the long term future of Union
