...is getting laid tonight.
Lol I almost made a thread about him a couple weeks ago because I heard the rumors, but I couldn't find any articles with good info about it, what do you guys know??
I can't imagine him NOT starting. Maybe/probably not this weekend, but I'm sure before long it'll be the Rolfe & Oduro show. I'm excited to see what the combo brings.
You guys should have seen his face when we met him as he got off the plane....he was in shock--and I think he was glad that we didn't sing that song.
AND he looked fantastic in practice--although his cardio needs a bit of work, but I fully expect we'll see him get some sub minutes in Toronto this weekend.
sadly, neither yet.
Watched him in the limited practices he's had and the touch and instinct is still there....obv. the durability is still (sadly) in question though.
Honestly, I'd rather them keep him on the bench for a little while until we are more than 100% sure his ankle is fully healed. I don't care if it takes until June, considering how busy May is. As someone who has vast, VAST experience with ankle injuries and re-injuries, you can THINK your ankle has healed and easily come back too soon only to aggravate it and be out even longer.
Even worse if he sprained his primary shooting foot.
I don't care when he come back, Just make sure he's damn ready and is helping out the team, nothing against the guy I love Rolfe but if he is being outplayed by someone else then that person better get his playing time. I kind of hope Klopas uses the "what have you done for me lately approach". If Rolfe isn't getting it done thor if his ankle injury nags him and it's affecting him, get someone else in if there is someone performing better at the moment
Off topic from the general direction of the thread....what are the chances Rolfe gets in the Ring of Fire?
Frank has his faults and flaws, but he wouldn't just play someone based on a name if they weren't doing their job. I think the fact that he's not too far removed from his playing days (I know, that's subjective--but the players passion is still in him), I think he has the courage to bench anyone who isn't cutting it, or needs a little extra bench time to motivate them further....look at Pappa during the Seattle and then Chivas game.....he sure seemed a bit more motivated and all it took was for him not to be in the starting line up for 1 game.
As for Rolfe in the RoF.....waaaaaaay too early to have that discussion, especially since he hasn't even seen the field yet in competition during this stint. Hell, if we were going on level terms, you'd have to include Segares in the discussion before Rolfe.
