Well, that was anti-climactic.
After a night of rumors swirling about forward Caleb Folan being transferred to Greek side Panionios Athens, it all ended with much less fanfare than expected. The Colorado Rapids officially announced on Friday that instead of a transfer, the club has mutually parted ways with Caleb and he will no longer be a part of the team after one season of service in Colorado.
A Gary Smith favorite, Folan looked lost at times under the system of play last season and got a reputation, perhaps undeserved, of being lazy and reluctant on the ball. He did score six goals for the team last season, the second most of anyone on the squad, but amidst a solidly mediocre season all told.
This opens the door for a new striker signing for the Rapids, though nothing has been announced in that regard. The team still has two very capable target forwards in Conor Casey and Macoumba Kandji.
