No it wasn’t an early April Fools Day joke, though I wish it were. The only headline necessary for the day is below. Along with other
- Rapids trade Burch & Cronin to Minnesota…(mlssoccer.com)
- Rapids send Cronin & Burch to Minnesota…(denverpost.com)
- MNUFC deals for defense, adds two Rapids starters…(startribune.com)
Let’s get real here. This trade brings very little to the Rapids at all right now in midfielder Mohammed Saeid, and winger Josh Gatt. The most that it brings is an international slot for the Rapids. And that we should see more time for Nana Boateng on the pitch in Cronin’s spot. Losing both Cronin and Burch will hurt, but we as supporters and the team must move forward, with I would guess Howard to now wear the captain’s armband.
The hope here according to some internet rumors are that the Rapids are going for more firepower in the summer transfer window in possibly Aron Jóhannsson of Bundesliga side, Werder Bremen.
Best wishes to both Burch and Cronin, they will be missed.
