Taylor Twellman:The Forgotten One
Does that name ring a bell to anyone else?One of the most dangerous strikers in the history of MLS,the reason you haven't heard his name is because he has missed the last two years due to injury with the Revs.With recent injuries still hurting the U.S attack (Charlies Davies and Clint Dempsey) spots are up for grabs.I'm not saying Twellman is the man but if he gets healthy and starts scoring goals he should get a call-up.
If Connor Casey keeps on getting called up (with all respect to Casey) I think TT deserves a shot.Twellman has good pace,is great in the air for his heights,and a proven finisher.
If it's going to happen this is the year for Twellman,who will be 30 when the MLS season starts.For all we know,if he stayed healthy and MLS allowed him to go to Preston North End(English Championship side) he could have been tallying up tons of goals.Here's to you Taylor Twellman,you are not forgotten.Good luck in 2010.
