    Kljestan to Orlando confirmed. I think he's an upgrade from Kaka.

    LAFC are beginning to look like a scary team. They might make the playoffs in their first year like ATL did

    I'm not scared of any team. TFC can beat anyone when they play their potential.

    Larin is the one guy I would like from the MLS. But not surprised he is going overseas.

    Not that we need him. But down the road, he could be our future 9 DP.

    Dzemaili wants to go back to Europe. Montreal's team is starting to crumble as they've already lost Ciman, Bernier, Camara and Oyongo...

    Disagree, or at least it depends . A player of this pedigree could be a great addition to the league. As long as he is Villa not Pirlo.

    He would be a nightmare in MLS, how many reds, player and referee assaults is this guy going to commit?

    Javier Hernandez linked with LAFC. I could see them or an mls team going for him, it hasn't worked out for him in pl with West Ham and he's still be a big draw within the Mexican fan base. He's only 29 so still a few more good yrs left in him.

    He would link up nicely with his friend Carlos Vela

    LAFC are spending a lot of their cap space and barely have 1/2 a team yet.

    Once again it seems AU has much broader vision about what they want to do than some other MLS teams. Some of the teams with their heads stuck in 2001 are falling behind and are going to become antiques.

    I totally missed Doneil signing for the Whitecaps. could form a monster CB pairing with Waston if both of them can keep their shit together and stay on the field.

    Barco to ATL scares me but also gives me a bit of hope on the backend. If they have enough cap space to do what they're doing than we definitely must have cap room to use.

    ya, looks like Atl will be our toughest competition next year.

    don't know. Montreal sports journalist just says he's "Also leaving" the shitpact after breaking the Dzemaili story. Chelsea is the one consistent rumor. I saw yesterday that Napoli were in for him. Who knows how accurate those rumors are.

    Could be. I stopped paying attention to the rumors when it became clear he and his agent were very comfortable spending the entire year gaslighting in the press about his departure.

    Lille sounds more likely. the two I mentioned sound ripe for his particular brand of self-aggrandizing. I'd 100% not be surprised if it was him and his agent who were touting him to all these big European clubs while in fact it's much more likely he ends up at a sort of European mid-major type , like Lille, instead.

    Garde and the Impact FO seem to not understand they're losing tons of assets for nothing by just seemingly releasing all these guys for free.
