Ekpo has not looked good in the middle. Where does Duka fit in the midfield mix? He had a great run in the Generation Adidas tour.

"We obviously see the value in him because we're bringing him back," coach Robert Warzycha said.
Yep, thats why the Crew cut him, bring him back and are paying Griffit less than the $40K he made last year. For me thats a slap in the face, I would have gone elsewhere.

have to make some tough decisions when you're working with a cap that doesn't match what most of the waterboys make in the other North American sports leagues.
Hope for the sake of soccer in Columbus the Crew can perform at high level early on. Otherwise, with very few recognizable faces, I fear the seats will be become and remain empty very early into the season. They have had a hard enough time filling seats with the likes of Hejduk and Schelloto and a first place standing in the East. Could spell doom if they can't find their way back there.
On a separate note, it's too bad they couldn't put the stadium downtown, or at least near downtown. I feel like they may have attracted the casual fan who was out in the Arena District looking for something to do.
