Instant Impact From Angel

Juan Pablo Angel (9), Ante Jazic (13)

Juan Pablo Angel was a somewhat controversial “Beckham Rule” signing. Despite having several good seasons at Villa Park he found himself surplus to the requirements after the January transfer window. Angel did score seven cup and league goals this past season in England, but knowing his time was up with Aston Villa he moved to MLS. Many people, myself included felt the Beckham rule should be reserved for high profile international superstars.

Whether Angel can eventually bring more fans to the Red Bulls matches is debatable. Despite being the largest metropolitan area in the country, New York is next to last in MLS attendance this season. However, Angel has already scored two goals (one was in a US Open Cup match) and contributed two assists in three games played. Joining wonderkid Josmer Altidore and grizzled veterans Clint Mathis and John Wolyneic in the Red Bull attack, Angel has now made Bruce Arena’s team one of the most formidable in MLS. Let’s hope their is still more to come from Angel.
