I really like Andres Perea, but I can't help but think Perea's had the toughest start of anyone on this team. The Colombian-American midfielder is stuck behind Araujo and Junior Urso for minutes in midfield, and when he has played ... oof.
Andres Perea killed play after play in the final third against CF Montreal in match one and he also seriously struggled against the Portland Timbers, conceding a sloppy penalty that cost the Lions a big win. I hope he can figure things out because he's such a talented player, but this has been a tough start.
