    And yet when I point out that the same problem existed in every other non-MLS Canadian franchise and to an extent does with the new CPL as well, I get crapped on by an endless parade of "build it from nothing" folks.

    Did Ricketts have to go through the allocation order since he's a former Mls player?

    No, he wasn't sold by TFC, TFC didn't keep his rights, plus he's not a usmnt member so he's a free agent.

    Thatís hardly a prestigious list. Basically if you played up top and didnít give up on the team in disgust over the past two decades, youíd get enough games against minnows to ďpadĒ your stat totals. The total amount of goals these guys have isnít even very high. I would expect Jonathan David to be our all time leading goal scorer in the next 16 months. And as much as heís actually prolific, thatís saying something.

    Years of watching him with the CanMNT will do that. I have seen nothing to change my mind.

    He scores goals when he doesn't think.

    Miami may be bringing in one of my favourite PSG players, Edi Cavani.

    Unfortunately this means I have to purchase an Inter Miami FC United Beckhams North End kit, but at least the colour scheme is cool.

    The Allocation Process is the mechanism used to determine which MLS club has first priority to acquire a player listed on the Allocation Ranking List. This list will consist of (i) select U.S. Men's National Team players, (ii) select youth U.S. National Team players, and/or (iii) former MLS players returning to MLS after joining a non-MLS club for a transfer fee greater than $500,000
