GSH's for 7/10.. Transfer Window Targets? Perhaps look no further than the NASL & USL

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk: Three Crew SC-related social media topics of interest for today.

In the NASL, Stefano Pinho already has a hat trick this year against a MLS club. 

In the USL, FC Cincinnati has defeated two MLS clubs, mainly their A squads, in us and Chicago.

Could find what you need in US lower divisions.

If you wanted a striker backup for Ola, perhaps don't have to look farther than the United States.

How about Stefano Pinho for Miami FC?

I'm sure this grabbed a manager notice or two in Major League Soccer.

The above goals weren't the most dramatically inspiring; yet much better than any Crew SC attempts in this or well any year's US Open Cup.

Pinho has four goals in total in US Open Cup play so far to lead that statistic in the tournament.

Djiby Fall for FC Cincinnati at 3 is the only one that can likely surpass Pinho. Link.

In addition to those four, in the NASL regular season Pinho has 8 goals so far in 13 appearances.

In 2015, he had 16 goals in 23 appearances for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and won the NASL Golden Boot.

In 2014, he had 11 goals in 20 appearances in the Finnish Premier League for MyPa.

Pinho spent his entire youth career at Fluminense and half of his pro career on loan from there.

In addition, Kwadwo Poku and Micheal Lahoud also currently with Miami FC could be dangerous again in MLS.

Miami's coach is Alessandro Nesta and the team is co-owned by Paolo Maldini and is in 1st.... So good luck prying someone from them, may find better luck in the USL.

What about the USL?

22 year old Romario Williams of the Charleston Battery has a ridiculous 14 goals in 15 games. But is owned by Atlanta United so there goes that. 

But how about another Jamaican in 26 year old Dane Kelly. For Reno 1868 FC he has 13 goals in 15 appearances this season.

Before that he had 41 goals in 93 appearances for the Charleston Battery.

The fellow can score the goals. 

We could also get some strange payback as well on FC Cincinnati. 😅 

Djiby Fall has 9 goals in 12 USL appearances for FC Cincinnati this season.

In addition, he has 3 US Open Cup goals as well.

The only downside is he is 32. His resume of travel and goals abroad not a downside.

If your looking for an attacking or right midfielder Enzo Martinez from the Charlotte Independence has 8 goals in 12 appearances this season.

The 26 year old gained USL All-League Team honors in 2016.

With owners like FC Cincinnati's and FC Miami's Duka may be fine dropping down for a bit
Crew SC unsurprisingly waived Dilly Duka today. Link.

Think Duka did what he had to do. Who wants to sit on a bench all year and get no minutes at this point in his career?

Looking at the above could work out better than where he was.

I'm rooting for him. Has sense in my book if he retweets Crewture. 😉

Good luck.
