The Colorado Rapids supporters forum was Wednesday evening and it was a fun affair to go to. Head Coach Oscar Pareja, technical director Paul Bravo and team captain Pablo Mastroeni were all there to talk to a large group of Rapids fans, and we got some very interesting tidbits out of the conversation.
The Rapids did confirm that they will likely be playing a 4-3-3 and Pablo Mastroeni made it very clear that he wasn't going to be retiring any time soon, but it took until the end of the conversation for the real juicy bits to come out. The most intriguing note was Paul Bravo's admission that the Rapids were not only looking for another South American player to add to the mix, but that they were seeking a 'true #10' style player to fit into the new 4-3-3 formation.
According to Bravo he wouldn't tell any more details, but we could hopefully look forward to some more information in a couple of days. With Jamie Castrillon already thrown into the mix on offense - am I the only one who thought that he would be our playmaking CAM? - it looks like it will only get stronger from here.
That is of course if Bravo's not just pulling the rug out from under us!
