Guys on this board will go ape shit if the US media say anything less than complimentary about Jose during the season and tos out 25 different stats that show how good he is, and they aren't wrong for doing so. I would hope the same guys would cut the Rook a little slack for not shutting him down completely.

What do ya say Ugo... a little slack for our young gun??
Exactly! Especially considering his slender frame and his less than physical style of play.

All he needs to do is come in, work hard, learn from Jose as much as he can and outplay Solomon for 12-15 minutes per game. That, and not turn the ball over much while making good decisions directing the team when he is playing point.
