2012 Player Rating And Review - Joseph Nane

Doug Pensinger

Joseph Nane was all right for a couple of games, and not anywhere near all right for the other couple.

Through the month of December, Burgundy Wave will do a short review of every player who received even a paltry sum of minutes in 2012. We start with the goalkeepers and then move our way up to the forwards. Today, we'll cover Joseph Nane.

Name: Joseph Nane
Number: 5
Appearances: 9
Stats: 1 goal

For a short two or three game period, it really looked like Joseph Nane was going to work out. It wasn't unprecedented, Oscar Pareja somehow turned Brian Mullan from a bruising winger into a legitimate playmaking outside striker. So when Nane decided to suddenly show up and play well for several games, netting a game winner against Real Salt Lake in the process, we got slightly overexcited about the possibilities.

The difference, of course, is that Brian Mullan is actually a pretty good soccer player no matter what archetype he's fitting into.

Shortly thereafter, Nane stopped getting time on the field as his play started to deteriorate into the mediocrity that we knew him best for. Ah well, was worth a shot at least. I've got a feeling that he won't be finding all that many more starts in Major League Soccer.

PLAYER RATING: 4
