They have looked ordinary, but to be fair Colorado and DC United turned ordinary looking into 2nd and 4th place last season. There is something to be said for consistent competence.
Rumor mill is at it again saying Schweinsteiger to Chicago this summer. I am not a huge fan of that deal, but it would probably sell a bunch of shirts and probably wouldn't hurt anything they have going on right now.
I'm happy we are getting a big name that can sell shirts and also play well. But we are set at his position, his injury record scares me, and its not the be all end all solution to all the problems. I'd rather sign a young right winger from South America who would probably be cheaper.
This seems like a situation that has fallen to our lap after not happening in the winter and we might as well do it because its easier than scouting someone that would make the team better.
