Contract starts on 1 July so still here for the rest of the season.
Thanks for the first season Kev, the rest not so much.
and the first half of the second season!
Gracious of you.Colorado Rapids have signed the third Designated Player in franchise history by acquiring experienced international striker Kevin Doyle, pending the receipt of his P-1 visa, ITC and medical. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are truly excited to add Kevin to our roster,”
“We really believe that he will be a difference-maker for us over the course of the next three seasons. His ability to help us in all areas of the offense will be invaluable.
American 'soccer' speak :facepalm:
Good luck to him, though.
Second half of that season really, he didn't score a single league goal until 20th November, didn't score again for the rest of 2010 and was in the team and not doing anything when we went on a run of 2 wins in 17 or something like that. From January onwards he scored 4 in 11 and played much better as our results and football improved substantially.
I think he was playing well when we were playing 4-2-3-1, in the run of games where we beat City and played well at Chelsea and United.
That said in the other run of games where we lost one in six where he scored against United andd got two against Spurs he was playing well. When he got injured at the point we had a mini crisis when we had seemed to be heading to safety. Luckily Fletcher pulled us out of the mess we had got dragged back into.
Watched him on soccer am this morning (first time I've seen it in nearly 20 years - when did Helen chamberlain turn into Ivy Tilsley?) - he came across very well and didn't seem bitter at all.
Best of luck to him.
