    Hatem Ben Arfa has been unsettled at every club he's been at. Great skills but I don't want him near TFC.

    He's not really a winger. More someone who likes to cut in and create. Don't know if that's what Vanney wants though.

    He would be the best 1v1 dribbler in MLS hands down

    he can play on the wing if needed, did it at Newcastle many times. Equal parts brilliance and immense frustration with this lad though. When he's hot he's nearly unplayable but when he's not he's a liability. He'd defo score some wonder goals, but he could be more hassle than he's worth, certainly with the team ethic we have here.

    He would fit the mould of the type of attacker they want to add. The character issues are what's ultimately concerning about him.

    Chilean International Felipe Gutierrez reportedly set to join an MLS club after contract termination with Real Betis following 2017 loan at Internacional.

    Three things: (1) Totera tweets suggested that if Argentinian player didn't pan out there was a Chilean player they would go after
    (2) Kurt Larson article said TFC scouted Brazil this off-season
    (3) Real Betis has terminated a contract for us before (Damien Perquis)

    I've watched some of Tim Kbel highlights, he's really good with both feet. He also seems to assist and score quite a bit for his position. I know that youth & college play often doesn't translate well to MLS, but he could turn out to be a great pick. Having him, Morrow, Hasler, and of course van der Wiel gives us a ton of quality at FB or wing (depending on our formation).

    If all it takes is more money, MLSE will pay it.

    Right, but there is a salary cap.

    I think he's okay with it!

    Looks like he was in the parking lot at the Training Ground. Good Sign.

    I know we have a solid team but margins between us and the other top teams are very thin. Every other team seems to be getting better with their recent signings. We have to sign replacements for Cheyrou, Beita & Cooper. I don't see any of the young guys replacing them.

    vdW is a great replacement for Beita but somethings up if it's taking this long to announce. Maybe he didn't pass the physical or is holding out for more money.

    I really want to see us make a deep run in CCL (like win it). We need a couple of great signings!

    ^Everybody breathe.

    Transfer certificates take days.
    What the world needs is more geniuses with humility; there are so few of us left.

    As everything seems, looks like the only sticking point might be with Cagliari and not with us or VdW, but even other deals take long. Look how long Neymar to PSG and Coutinho to Barca took.

    I agree.

    Plus, its obvious now that they want to give VdW a little time to acclimate himself, and our pre-season schedule this year allows for that (the team is back on Saturday).

    Probably be announced Friday or Saturday and he'll go out with everyone to Mexico.

    The margin was actually pretty effing large.

    We had the best season ever and lost just 1 starter who appears to have been upgraded.

    Point is teams around us are strengthening massively. The reality in MLS, if you don't strengthen you can go from the best to worst. Not saying we have the team to do that.... Its just the reality that we've lost some of our sweet privileges (Cooper, Cheyrou, Raheem) on top of losing a starter and we haven't really replaced them. I trust management for all their decisions, except for the Spencer one.
