    Little bit tough to judge, heís still so young and weíve seen so little of him with the first team.

    I agree that exists globally but, to my point, where is the example of the MLS team thatís doing this?

    Because of the reputation of our league, prospects are, in general, being sold VERY early in...

    Well, exactly.

    With the exception of 2016, which was on the back of an exemption DP (who got no credit because he played in Dallas), they are pretty meddling.

    Maybe this is the thing we should be focused on rather than a flashy new forward.

    We can function as a team without a striker and tread water waiting for reinforcements. But if our FB or CB...

    Iíll give Curtis a pass for not closing Borre in the primary international window for other leagues. If heís the player, thereís really not much alternative... it was always going to be this way.

    Good call. I think this guy has a lot of potential but only gets a fraction of the hype of our other prospects. Heís not the fastest but he is very skilled. Once he fills out he could become a good...
