Philly "Cheeeeese!" Stakes

Now that he's back in MLS, can Freddy Adu grill opponents up and serve them on a roll to MLS Cup? As he gets set top debut against FC Dallas tonight, that seems a bit much to ask with such a young team.

However, I think it's a good fit, I know he's grown a lot and I believe he will come correct with Philly - who currently are next to last in the league in shots on goal. I will go out on a limb and predict the addition of Freddy will be worth at least .4 goals per game to their attack over the final eight regular season games. That means I'm saying the Union, who now average 1.23 goals per match, will hit for no less than a baker's dozen by the end of the regular season.

But who cares what I think (even if I did promise everyone that Conor Casey would be straight money coming back home from Europe)? Let's hear from Freddinho.
