Daily Update:12/5/2019

I'm sorry for another late update. I worked late again then had to do some homework when I got home. Today's update is going to be about 3 things: Pareja's introductory press conference and a quick update on Andres Perea and German Cano. Let's get started.

Press Conference

If you weren't able to tune in at 10:00 AM this morning, the club conducted a press conference to introduce the new boss. It was an interesting watch and I recommend that every fan give it a listen to learn more about how he sees this team moving forward under his leadership. Here are my 3 main takeaways from the press conference:

1. He is all about positive environment = success

I think everyone would agree with me that the feeling around the club is mostly negative at the moment (well, before Pareja's hire of course). Pareja seems to hammer home his points about how a positive environment in and around the team, whether that be from fan turnout or results, can lead to a successful on the field product.

2. He wants to put his stamp on this organization

Similar to his tenure in Dallas, it seems that Pareja wants to be THE MAN when it comes to Orlando. From wanting to bring in certain types of players to the comment about wanting to have more homegrowns, it seems to me that Pareja wants to be a part of all of the decisions when it comes to the team.

3. He is the right man to take us forward

This might be wish-casting but he's saying all the right things about every topic and I truly believe he will turn our club around and get us into the playoffs and hopefully beyond.

Andres Perea

A respected journalist has released that the deal for Andres Perea would be a year-long loan deal with an option to buy at the end of it. Basically, it would be a similar type of deal to the Ruan deal. I'm all for this. Instead of going all-in on the player, we have a year to see if we want him to stick around, then we have that agreed-upon option of doing it.

German Cano

It seems that a press conference is being held tomorrow at Cano's current club, Medellin. Some journalists have reported that Cano will most likely be publicly saying goodbye to the club. Keep an eye out for any news surrounding him tomorrow.

That's all from me tonight. I'll see you all tomorrow.

'Til next time, this has been Gavin Rushnell and #VamosOrlando
