    FWIW....a tweet about the temp field they laid down in Cinci for the USMNT game on the weekend. Apparently they dug up the turf field first - so not a lay on top thing.



    Yes...Jozy is likely to play on this.

    I could see him captaining the national team in the future.
    For sure. I watched him at a Footy Talks event with KJ/Sharman and the crew (actually can't remember who was there that night beyond Caldwell....beer was good)

    impressive mind set. hopefully he can capitalize on his intentions and become our go to Mid boss one day.

    a happy Jozy is a scoring Jozy. Playing for your NAT team is an honour and he for sure wants another shot at going deep/winning silverware with them.

    There must be so much going on in that locker room/board room that we don't know about. I totally get your position but I'm personally giving him some slack hoping the whole team gets partly sorted out.

    Wanted to say exactly this.

    I'll add that it provides a change of scenery, without him having to move on and do well for another club; if he finds his mojo again, to return and start potting them in for us, we'll look back at this moment as a blessing in disguise.

    Every good player in the world that has the opportunity to start for his NT would do the same especially after being frozen out for 2 years while in your prime.

    The disparity between these salaries is so crazy... But without further ado, Eric Zavaleta 275k , and Marky-never-seen-a-pass-backward-he-didnt-like-Delgado 250k need to be traded or waived.

    Bono on 350k is another question mark.

    Curtis still has a lot of work to do.

    Can someone explain the difference between Base Salary and Guaranteed salary please.

    Guaranteed #s
    Zavaleta and Bono don't deserve 300k and 380k.
    Auro questionable at 276k.
    Ciman at 435k.
    Morrow at 330k is lower/or what I expected.
    Westberg at 115k and Deleon at 175k and Laryea at 56k are steals.
    Pozuelo at 3.8mill.
    Jozy at 6.3mill.

    Ciman not getting tam is good for the team. Westburgs a steal at that price. Bono and zavs have to go. Jozy at 6.1 is kind of ridiculous for a guy who is hurt half the time.

    Interesting to see when you look at the top salaries in the league, there are 3 in the top 30 that are being paid by "Major League Soccer" (Giovani dos Sandos $6.5m, Yura Movsisyan $2.3m and Shkelzen Gashi $1.7m).

    Deleon, Akinola, and Westberg are great pieces of business. With the news coming around about how awful salary figure releases are within teams, I struggle to imagine how much of an ego hit it would be for them when they look at the salaries of our beer-league-tier players, guys who donít make the bench, or TFC2 alumni.

    Boyd on over $200k is a joke, even if itís not a huge amount of money. He should be on minimum. Bono and Zavaleta certainly need to be moved.

    Ciman Iím less concerned about if he ends up performing like he did the last game. Osorio is a big question mark if he doesnít perform like he did last year. I guess weíll see after the GC (Mitrita, for example, is on $500k).

    Looking at this list, weíre definitely getting fleeced in certain areas compared to other teams in the league.

    We once again have the biggest budget, among the fewest players above the max salary charge, and the most players ineligible for TAM.

    Because he wasnít going to re-sign for less, and the FO couldnít risk losing him after losing two of our best players before the season even began.

    Sounds like a pretty hasty piece of business. That sort of business move often comes back to bite people in the ass. Letís hope this isnít one of those times.

    The only issue with him making this much is that no one else will pay him that if we need to get rid of him. Otherwise it doesnít matter what you pay, I guess.

    The funniest revelation is that Zlatan = Houston, despite them being back just 4 points from LAG.

    Also of note: Auro and Beita on fairly similar salaries despite a big discrepancy in performance.

    l.
    From the athletic article this morning
    Another quick note before we dive in: The MLSPA divides their payroll numbers into “base salary” and “guaranteed compensation.” Base salary is self-explanatory; it’s simply the amount a player is guaranteed in a given year, not counting any signing or other bonuses. The calculus behind guaranteed compensation is a little bit more involved. The MLSPA figure includes a player’s base salary and all signing and bonuses averaged over the full length of the player’s contract, including option years. Including option years means that calling it “guaranteed” is a bit misleading, but, thanks to certain cases in which a large portion of a player’s pay comes from a signing bonus, it’s a bit more accurate on the whole. Unless otherwise indicated, it’s the measure we use in this piece.

    Along with Adi, those two are probably the most bizarrely overpriced boondoggle contracts. The only thing more unintelligible is determining how much Piatti actually makes.

    Can't believe Jozy got a pay rise. Wish I could show up to work 50% of the time and get a raise.

    We are going to pay a 30-year-old Jozy Altidore over $6mm annually!!!

    Good grief, we are in for years of pain.

    Ludicrous argument. Evidently his cap hit would be the same at $1M so who cares. MLSE has deep pockets. You're not the one paying him.

    Years of pain? Get a grip.

    I really dont know who to believe in the Seba fiasco.

    We were willing to give Jozy a 1.3million raise but not match Seba's existing contract of 7 mill (Seba's words)?
