    This is a reasonable projection given the best players we have on our roster. Now that said, I dunno how we play what are essentially four central midfielders..

    I realize this is the Sun... but this hype is getting pushed to big levels. Shows you how in-depth scouting is these days where all these clubs are onto a player thatís weíve barely had a view of.

    Sounds like a recipe for failure. The only reason NFL stadiums are useful to this league is for launching new teams and selling cheap tickets to create a broad based appeal. Guess they missed that...

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

    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.

    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.
