Today New York got even more Scandinavian with yet another Euro signing. Markus Holgersson has been signed as a centerback – which we need especially if we sign Ream (see my last post).
He’s hot….really hot or I just really like Scandinavians. Hans Backe may have his faults but his improvements to the backline make my viewing at matches at RBA much easier on the eyes when defending the South Ward. First, Jan Gunnar Solli who was by far my favorite player last year and now Holgersson. He also will hopefully stick around for a while in NY. At 26, he’s just about to reach his prime for a defender. Let’s just hope he’s good at defending set pieces which was probably the biggest flaw in the 2011 version of the Red Bulls. Let’s hope there is a few more signings before the season opener since I’m not expecting anything out of the Superdraft for NY.
