Both are true. Ruiz was a better player and a better diver than Davies.
A Microsoft translation of the article:
Sorry, didn't see this thread before I started another.
Does anyone else see other teams signing young, exciting players with tons of potential and see us signing journeymen Central and South Americans? There isn't ONE player out there that is a better fit than Ruiz? Are we naive enough to think he is the last piece of the puzzle? We might as well have picked up Freddy Montero.
This is a great move. I see a future sponsorship deal with Hooters just around the corner.
We already have a solid corps of young players on the team. That's been a strength of this team for a few years now.
I don't know if Ruiz will work for us, but it's not like this is a team full of players past their expiration date.
Hey now, just the other day we were talking about powerhouse players Frederiskson of the WHO-GIVES-A-SHIT first division of WHATEVER country and FirstName (I forgot, sorry) Porter, of the North American Soccer Football League.com.
I see a deal with Legal Sea Food.
I don't have a huge problem with Ruiz. He's a cheater, sure, but it's a different mentality than we're used to, it's trying to get an edge any which way, and that's not uncommon in the rest of the world.
What I don't like is the desperation. United has now basically admitted they didn't do enough in the offseason to procure goal scorers, so they are now relegated to hoping Ruiz' old ass can scrape something together. I know, Hamdi's contract, blah blah blah, but this is weak. United is perenially outperformed by the FO's of the majority of MLS franchises. Fact.
I'm usually just a lurker, but I registered an account just to comment on this.
Ugh. Just ugh.
I hate that we picked him up but I hate that that hate will be tempered if he scores a bunch of goals for us (not that I think he will). I feel gross just thinking about it.
So all it took for you to agree with me was the signing one of the most hated players ever in MLS?
Let's call it a day!
Worm brings back the classics of years past.
Oh how I miss you, Worm.
Thanks, worm, hadn't seen that one! I wondered what happened to Ronnie O'Brien.
Now I feel gross. Shouldn't have come to that, but oh well.
Man, this is a lot of rancor for the Phillies catcher.
Also, does this mean we have to now hate Ricardo Clark for kicking the crap out of "our" Carlito?
Ruiz will bring us together, no doubt.
Love this move. People complain about the lack of goalscorers on the team, and we go out and get one of the best in MLS history. I will always remember a goal he scored where he could have gone down after a defender hacked at him in the box and he just got back up and powered a shot into the goal anyway. His tenacity is what intrigues me the most; his nose for goal is exactly what the team needs.
His first day of training all the DC United players should wear "Clark 13" jerseys just to mess with the little fish.
He didn't even come on a trial first. How do you just sign a guy that has played only a couple NT games in ten months.
Yep, that classic moment where Ricardo Clark kicked him in the side, and he writhed away clutching his face.
Good god today sucks.
The D in DC United stands for DERP
I have always hated Ricardo Clark. He's a talentless assclown that dicked the US in the last WC and deserves to fade away. Getting him would have pissed me off beyond words.
By that reasoning, let's bring Jaime Moreno back -- he's one of the best in MLS history, after all.
How many goals did Carlos Ruiz score last season? Oh, right, he couldn't catch on to a team last season.
