Shalrie Joseph, the new Goat

By Olivia Cervantes

It’s the break of dawn; the sun is just coming up when you check your phone or computer and BAM! Chivas USA trades midfielder Blair Gavin to New England Revolution in exchange for attacking midfielder Shalrie Joseph. You rub your eyes to make sure you read it right. Did General Manager Jose Domene sleep last night? Yeah, we don’t think so either.

But the reality is there. Former Revolution captain Shalrie Joseph is our new Goat. The 34 year-old Grenada born midfielder has been with Major League Soccer since 2003, disputing 261 games (254 starts), notching 37 goals and 34 assists. Aside from his club experience, Joseph has also been key part of his country’s national team, disputing 30 games and scoring three goals.

We welcome Shalrie Joseph to the Red-and-White and bid farewell and good luck to the man with our favorite mustache, Blair Gavin.

By the way, if you have a Twitter account, you can now follow him at @ShalrieJoseph21.
