    Stage 1 goes Friday at 3pm. We have Irwin and Ricketts up for grabs. As a reminder any player taken in Stage 1 needs to be offered at minimum their previous year's salary. Players taken in Stage 2 negotiate brand new deals. We get the 5th pick.

    For discussion's sake here are the notable CBs available and last year's guaranteed compensation:

    Jonathan Campbell (128k)
    Christian Dean (93k)
    Maynor Figueroa (250k)
    Kevin Ellis (158k)
    Kofi Opare (133k)
    Dejan Jakovic (150k)
    Aaron Maund (189k)
    Jose Aja (240k)

    I think Campbell, maybe Opare are the only ones I'd take any real look at.
    The only player TFC has ever selected in the re-entry draft was DeRo (for his final stint here).

    Most of these players won't get selected in either round.

    We grabbed Robbie Findley in 2014 through re-entry too.

    Forgot Robbie (maybe because he was only here one season).

    I might take Figueroa on $100K as CB depth if he'd do it. I haven’t really followed him but I remember him being a stud in the Dallas game here last May.

    He's a decent veteran but I would classify him as a left back.

    Dallas are really dismantling their team. Pretty interesting for a team that was near the top in the west for all of 2018

    A classic old TFC move.

    So how about Nick Deleon? I liked him when he first came onto the scene as a midfielder, but I'm not sure about him as a fullback. How do you think Bez or Vanney see him being used?

    In his rookie year he played further up the pitch and had 6g 4A. Lately he has been pulled back as a FB and not been as productive. So possibly he will be a winger and FB depth?

    I think we'll use him as a versatile squad option for both the right full back and midfield roles. We badly needed another option to Delgado last season, and DeLeon can offer that, especially since we do play with wider midfielders. He can also be a useful full back option especially if we don't get Auro. There may also be occasions where we'll play on the front foot and field van der Wiel in central defence with DeLeon on the right.

    This is a good signing to address the overall lack of depth in our team.

    He seems like expensive depth, not what I expected when we cleared the Irwin and Ricketts contracts but if he plays more than those two did it's a more effective use of cap space.

    https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2018/...yoff-structure

    New playoff format and schedule is official. Full details in the link, but the gist of it is 7 playoff teams per conference, with conference winners getting a bye to the 2nd round, all single-elimination with the higher seed hosting.

    New schedule has MLS Cup played on November 10th and the entire playoffs happening in 3 weeks between FIFA international breaks. The season is still starting at the beginning of March as usual so expect more mid-week and double game week fixtures throughout the season. Depth becomes even more important.

    It's a cup competition. This will make the supporters shield even more of a prize. And will be good for TV.

    I wonder if de Boer might bring one of Winter or de Klerk with him to Atlanta.

    Had the same discussion yesterday. De Klerk would be a logical candidate. Stayed in NA and is watching the game over here. Good assessor of talent.

    Beitashour was named LAFC's defensive MVP (voted on by the players).
