Dear Columbus CrewBy: Kristina | November 15th, 2010
What are you doing? As a supporter of the club for a good while I think mistakes are being made. It’s understandable if you don’t want to resign Hejduk or Padula but GBS? Come on are you for real?! If it wasn’t for his experience that he brought I don’t think this team was even close to being where they are today. Granted it was a team effort but still at least let him play one more freaking year and let the guy retire! Have you not heard him say he loves the city and fans?! Maybe you need to make another coaching change instead. Don’t give me the crap about how the team is in “rebuild” stage. That’s the same excuse we have heard over and over again. So now it comes out that the coaches didn’t like GBS from the start. Umm hello he was the Leagues MVP in 2008 along with the MVP of MLS Cup 2008. I understand it’s all about the money and roster spots. Work something out damnit. These younger guys need to look upon the Vets for advice so that when the Vets decide to retire they can take the ranks. In true honesty no one can rank where GBS does. You can throw all your strikers in there but no one will perform and shine. We learned the lesson in 2009 during the playoffs. 2010 he was a huge playmaker. So if you decide to let him go it will be a big mistake.
