He can easily make a low end team like Metz in a year or so.
Possibly. If you look at the stand out MLS players, they often get courted by EPL Clubs (Or atleast thats what the rumors say).

If I could step in Piette's shoes, I would stay in the Bundesliga/2.Bundesliga if I get solid minutes and a solid salary. But if I don't play much, I'd much rather go to the MLS, get some solid $$, play for my hometown team, and IF another team comes running after me, Then we'll see. If not, whats wrong with coming back home? Example: If Piette gets an offer from Borrusia Munchengladbach (Europa League/Top half of the table team) in Germany as a Bench/Starting player, I'd definatly flip off the MLS and not even think about it. But If I stayed at Dusseldorf (His current club), who are fightnig to relegation every single season, and not even being a starter, I would consider coming to the MLS. Thats what I mean

Only time will tell. I haven't watched him enough to say whether he is a special player or not, but according to reports, seems like he has something

For those who haven't saw this game BTW; Amazing game Portland vs NYRB. Great quality of play. The sound of the Timbers Army when Portland scores is goosebump worthy.
