Freddy Fever

USA's Freddy Adu starts at forward, plays 68 minutes and draws a first-half penalty during Monaco's 1-1 tie with Juventus in a friendly today. The French club won on PKs, 5-4. Might this be an indication of a bit more playing time for Adu in the second half of the Ligue 1 season?

I think it's an indication that Freddy will lead the USA to the World Cup Final in 2010, where we will be victorious with his hat trick....

Oh, wait, a friendly?

"It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about A FRIENDLY...I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about A FRIENDLY, not a game, not a game, not a game, but we're talking about A FRIENDLY. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game last it's my last but we're talking about A FRIENDLY man." - F. Adu

I'm a bit more impressed by Messi's hat trick at Atletico Madrid today in the CdR...

Hey, it's better news about Adu than we've gotten in a long time. I'll take it.

Thanks for mentioning this FRIENDLY in the kickaround STEVE!
Saw it on the feed list but thought it was basketball or something and didn't bother to check it out...
Ah who cares. Missed the Messi hat trick but my feed cut to some awesome looking booty worship video that I had to shut down in the presence of the tiny tot. Just wasn't my day I guess:-)

a stadium with a track around it is crap.

anyone find highlights that include Adu drawing the penalty. rojadirecta has nothing.

Yes, yes, but did Moreno pass him the ball?

...I'm a few years behind, aren't I?

It's a friendly but Juventus played their first team, as people can see, so it's not like he was up against chumps.

Monaco also gave it up at the death -- Juve equalized in the 90th minute. Which implies they were doing well while Freddy was in there and the players switched in messed up defending the 1-0 lead.

Friendly or not, this is definitely a good thing for Freddy. I think he'll get more time. This game to me really sounds like it could be an inflection point for his time at Monaco.
