    I was rather hoping Cochrane wasn't involved in any paperwork, unless it involved making travel arrangements for the team, or booking hotels.

    Is Newell Old Boys going through Administration? Or maybe its another team, which means Urruti wasn't the guy.

    I don't recall Payne ever confirming that Urruti was the guy. Everyone is just assuming he is because someone else said that TFC was trying to get him

    Kurtis Larson@KurtLarSUNNelsen also hinted today there will likely be more players released. In the wake of Stinson, more tough decisions. #TFC

    Who might be going?

    Kurt Larson mentions on twitter that it's Urruti's club that's in administration?

    Kurtis Larson ‏@KurtLarSUN 17m To sum up today: Cesar/Russell domestic, Urutti hold up because of his club, Stinson out, Richter still here, Nelsen satisfied w/ 3pts #TFC

    https://twitter.com/KurtLarSUN/statu...83591585931265

    If anyone can find information about Newell's Old Boys going into administration or having financial problems please post in this thread

    you are wrong in case of Braun

    Guaranteed Contracts
    The CBA signed in 2010 provides a guaranteed contract for all players who are at least 24 years old and have a minimum of three years of service with MLS.

    Well, it stands to reason that depth players left over from the previous regime with less than 3 years experience in MLS will be the most likely candidates to be released due to the CBA provisions. It would be the most cost effective manner in which to open roster spots and create cap flexibility.

    My guess is that the likes of Wiedeman and Emory are on the way out shortly.

    Wiedeman is most likely for me. Hasn't seen a minute of playing time so far.

    Beyond him I'm not sure. Braun? Seems like he'd have enough value to at least get us something via a trade. I think Lambe is safe for now. Emory is a possibility, but he's our only cover at LB (unless we use Russell there). And I'm not sure we'd release any of the new signings so soon after bringing them in... maybe one of Osorio, Morgan, or Bennett? Seems too unlikely, that would make them pure panic moves and I don't think that's how Payne operates.

    Koevermans?

    Only way DK is not going to play for us this year is if he is unable and we can do the injured player thingy dingy (I forget specifics and don't feel like looking up now)

    We already did our 1 buy out with Frings (99% sure on this) and I am positive you can't buy out a player during the season

    I thought the deal with Frings was that it was, financially, a buyout, but officially he retired so we sort of danced around the whole buyout thing.

    either way, buying out Koevermans would still count towards cap hit now (and this has been said like 10 times before)

    Thought the same, that we still get a DP buyout. I think we'll still see Danny K gone once he's healthy and again occupying that valuable international slot and salary hit, but that probably won't happen until June and in the nearer term, Wiedeman and Braun are definitely on the bubble.

    Stinson is just the next victim in a long line of academy players that have left TFC simply because they have no where else to go. Players that graduate from the academy but need further development before actually being able to contribute to the first team. No real reserve team, no U23/21 team, no affiliation with a lower league team, no loans.

    Just to confirm, was Braun signed pre- or post-Payne?

    Quillian should never have been signed. Not at all ready. He was brought in on a panic. Even if Kocic and the backup were both injured, he still wouldn't have seen game time. They would have gone to the MLS keeper reserve pool.

    Yeah, I don't see the benefit in buying him out for half a year when his contract is about to expire anyway and we probably won't be hurting for cap space. Just threw his name out there since nothing is impossible I guess.

    ^Not that I care whether he stays or not, but just seems weird that the first signing under Payne might leave the club before even playing a competitive match...

    Vukovic is actually with the Slask Wroclaw reserve team, Feel bad for the others for their career may already be over.

    I'm gonna predict and call for 2 midfields to be the next to go. Dunfield, Hall, Lambe or wiedeman. At which point TFC will announce 2 new signings. 10 days will pass and TFC will announce a third signing, a young DP. Ephraim will take the LM position and the Argentinian will come in behind earnshaw.

    I suppose you can put Braun under 'panic buy'. KP had a look at the roster and was just shocked at what he saw. So he grabbed first player that even remotely improved the roster.

    I said it then and I'll say it again now. Justin Braun is not good enough for TFC

    If you can find buyers for Dunfield, Hall or Lambe or Wiedeman, you should be the GM!
