In reality, the gap is way less once you remove your RT Hate Blinders. I see them as very different, and honestly, I wouldn't want RT in the HM position going forward anyhow. Frankly, I see him as back-up for Hwang in the style of play MDS is pushing, being a box-to-box guy, always in support, and finding the open player. Not nearly technically gifted as Hwang, obviously. Filipe has lost me and I have him behind RT on the pecking order. Long season, there are a lot of matches to play and we'll see how it plays out. "Harvey sucked, Beitashour wanted big dough, Parker wanted more dough than Waston was getting and heavens they couldn't do that because Waston might ask out, and Waston asked out anyway. There, all caught up." I liked Harvey's personality and energy in the squad (I assume he was great in the room, too), but for the few offensive chances he helped generate, he left us far too exposed on the left far too often. I found when Marcel de Jong took the spot, he actually brought a lot more stability to the left. Beita was way more stable, not sure you can justify paying an outside back that kind of money if he's not consistently chipping offensively, and defensively sound. Maybe the new guy on loan can pull that off. Seems to have a mean left foot for free kicks. Parker, IMO, was a big loss. Waston, IMO, not so much. Already like Godoy may more.
