View Full Version : Suggestion: Kellyn Acosta

06-07-2017, 07:18 PM
The USA CM is 21, he turns 22 before August, with 9 international caps to his name and will have every chance to star in the Gold Cup starting Saturday.

An athletic box to box midfielder he's got a great engine, willingness to press and chase back to defend, a fairly deft passing game who likes to try seam splitting passes upfield. He's got a great workrate and has improved every season, recently showing off good dead ball skills in his repertoire. He's also made it a point to arrive late to the box in the hopes of pouncing on a scramble, rebound, pass to put the ball on goal. He has 5 goals so far this season in league and CONCACAF club play as an #8.

Celtic offered 4m US dollars for Nagbe. Acosta should be available for around that price.

Obligatory youtube highlight with terrible music.

He's played left and right fullback for his youth academy and as a USA U-17 and U-20. He's not slow for a midfielder by any means. He's a pure #6 box to box mid who will run with the ball if given space or look for an outlet, usually a winger at FCD to start the break. They are all about the counter and love to start the break out wide which would help him fit right in at CP with Zaha and Townsend.

Looks like he'd make a decent right back in a 433.

Other than Kirovski and Berhalter, have any other yanks wore the red & blue?

Wynalda, the crack 90's striker had a trial I believe..
