Edu Starts for Rangers: Saturday Action

What Up Scotland?



Both Maurice Edu and Damarcus Beasley started tonight for Rangers in a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock. Edu played the first 60 minutes of the match and left a good impression, passing well and winning a number of tackles in the midfield.  By contrast, Beasley (who was replaced at halftime) saw a lot of the ball, but had trouble posing a threat as he was dispossessed often on offense.  He did win a number of fouls for the Gers, but he needs to start beating defenders if he wants to stay in the lineup.

My Thoughts: Sweet stuff for Maurice Edu, who was gifted a starting spot after Kevin Thomson failed a late fitness test.  He played well and hopefully he continues to impress in his chances, although I think he’ll go back to being a substitute once Thomson returns.  Beasley looks to be in a small rut right now, unable to really attack with confidence. Hopefully he can work the kinks out.

Ligue 1


Freddy Adu came on in the 79th minute as Monaco posted a victory against Loriente today.  He had a few nice touches on the ball but really wasn’t involved much, but at least he came on sooner than the 85th minute.  It probably doesn’t bode well that Monaco’s new signing Park started up top and scored a goal.

you can watch video of Adu’s 12 minutes HERE

Check in tomorrow to see if Michael Bradley debuts for ‘Gladbach and if Jozy sees the pitch for Villarreal!
