I think that everyone needs to keep Adu's age in mind. He is still only 22 years old. It was only a few years ago that Deuce was driving me crazy with his reckless 1 v 1 attacking and resulting turnovers every game. Now he is unquestionably our best offensive scorer in his late 20's. To say Adu's will never be anything but a super sub is taking things a bit to far. In 5 years it is very realistic to see a 27 year old Adu's in the role that Dempsey currently playing and maybe even doing as well. The problem with Freddy Adu is that there is very little grey area when people talk about him. He is either the answer or a failure. The truth is we still don't know , but he has definitely progressed.
