  1. Sticky: If they sign another striker who is a good...

    If they sign another striker who is a good regular scorer I think we can declare this a slam dunk best off season ever. Manning seems to have answered Curtis' incompetence with a fairly striking...

    Relative value of the player? Salcedo has a $10M release clause but they were offering him at $3M in anticipation of losing him on a free. Soteldo is perceived as a $6-7M player in South America.

    Trivia question: is Jack Harrison the first former MLSer to score a Premier League hat-trick? The only competition I can think of would be McBride and Dempsey.

    Nani signs with American-owned Venezia.

    Well, unless it ended "... swerved into the ditch, its hulking frame engulfed in flames." That would make sense.

    My wife thinks you're a mad fool.

    Hey, we practically invented the DP DM with Deguzman, Frings and Laba.
  8. Sticky: I guarantee you that with that many bigger teams...

    I guarantee you that with that many bigger teams interested, he was looking for a substantial raise. He's a Mexico international and was one of the most solid centre backs in the league his first...
  9. Sticky: Then we might have gotten lucky; the $10M clause...

    Then we might have gotten lucky; the $10M clause is probably why the other clubs expressing interest hadn't bid. We have something to offer that means they get value now (and they deal with Brazil a...

    According to this MSN piece he has a $10M release clause. So we're probably offering both Soteldo and money for him.

  11. Sticky: I suspect you're right and they're thinking...

    I suspect you're right and they're thinking ahead. If he's already considered good enough for Wolves and two Turkish clubs to come in, then they might have been told by the player that he still wants...

    A good manager can find as a good non DP striker in an equivalent league, like Sweden, or League One in England, or the Greek league. These leagues all pay similar money to MLS already, not always a...

    Scoring machine, it seems. African heritage, raised in Brazil to a father playing pro in Brazil. Quite the pedigree.

    EDIT: The kid is another Phonzie; 6'4 and built like a brick outhouse at 14.

    His agent likely knows MLS regs well and has told him that if they want to buy out a deal they have to pay for the option year as well.

    If so, he'd be insane to take anything less than full...
  15. Sticky: Yeah, agreed. I have a lot of respect for...

    Yeah, agreed.

    I have a lot of respect for both Bradleys and a lot of optimism about him as our manager. But they have a blind spot with Armas, who is like a son to Bob and a brother to Michael....

    I don't. I think he's a complicated individual and sometimes guys like that morph into square pegs in round holes.

    I have never doubted Michael Bradley's commitment to being here; the man gave up...
  17. Sticky: He had a string of excellent, consistent forwards...

    He had a string of excellent, consistent forwards who scored regularly. He had, in their second season, five forwards of starting quality in this league including Christian Ramirez, Diego Rossi,...

    I could be wrong but I recall someone saying last week that Ayo won't be ready until summer either.

    We really do need to sign at least one more striker.
  19. Sticky: Have you watched enough of Seattle to comment on...

    Have you watched enough of Seattle to comment on O'Neill? Does anyone know if he's starting material? There seem to be a lot of positive comments about him online but he also seemed to be number on...

    Lots of people use pennames. They don't generally go to the effort of cutting-and-pasting over their grad certificate to prove the person is real, or claiming they live in a different city from their...

    Probably true. They're still going to leak to who gets them the most coverage, which is why so many of these stories originate with Romano at Sky Sports.

    Every time someone who has zero real-world media experience quotes "sources" and they have less than, say, 100,000 supporters, ask yourself why they would be someone that a person at MLSE would leak...

    Here's a thread on twitter outlining his extensive efforts to prove he isn't fake, which he clearly is.

    It's been mentioned in a thread on the RPB facebook page that he is not a real person, he's a created character from some kid in the states. He's not pseudonym, the kid was really pretending Will...

    This one of many takes today suggests Sao Paolo has given TFC a take-it-or-leave it one-year loan offer for Soteldo along with buying 50% of his rights. It also suggests we haven't called them back...
