2/19/2010: Guillermo Barros Schelotto Crew Legend Video Series, Volume I

Crew legend Guillermo Barros Schelotto enters his fourth year for the black and gold (Pic on right by Crew fan Christopher Uhler).

Rivals call him a diver. Crew fans call him a hero that has a legitimate claim of being the most influential player in the history of the organization. Guillermo was the catalyst and piece that was built around to bring the Crew to their current success and status. As Guillermo's arrival took the laughing stock on and off the field (before his arrival) into the team that could not be rivaled either on the field or in the supporters section. Guillermo's arrival ushered in a whole new era and belief. With over 40 assists and 24 goals in 74 league appearances and with one to two years left in the tank, Crew fans cannot wait to see the end chapters of Guillermo's playing days with this club. As this season Guillermo will likely hit the 100 caps mark with the Columbus Crew; and hopefully be able to lead them to the promise land of another MLS Cup and even possibly a place in the Club World Cup Competition.

Many players and staff have helped make this turn around possible, it was a team effort but there is no if's, and's, or but's that Guillermo is a legend and will always be idolized by the Crew faithful.

Guillermo! Guillermo! Guillermo!
