Or are we going to find we have to play with 3 at the back and so we need more cover at CB? Is Jozy going to get hurt quickly again and we'll need a big striker?

    I think the Philly game showed we have decent depth (decent, not great) at most positions, meaning we don't need to rush into a signing. The window is open until May, remember.
    I agree but this is a yeah MLSE needs to show which direction they want to go in. Our team now is top 5 in the league if everyone remains healthy and everyone gels together. It takes weeks to get a decent transfer so may is be going to creep up real Quick! Typical the sooner you can get your signing in the better.

    But as we've seen, they already have players identified... it's just a matter of making the move.

    But let's wait a bit longer to make sure we really fill a need and not just for the sake of it.

    They need a CB more than a right back imo if they go three at the back.

    Get Curtis on the phone fast and offer VDW plus cash for Villalba before Atlanta sacks De Boer. I was going to say it half jokingly but FDB doesn't rate Villalba, insists on his system no matter what (which VDW knows), and has Brek Shea at FB so obviously he really doesn't have a clue.

    I would absolutely LOVE this.

    However, while I think FDB would go for it, I can't see Bocanegra doing it.

    Then we can bring VDW back and have two guys on the right side standing around doing nothing.

    Well played.

    It appears the options right now are either: 1) take a low priced rental for a few months with an option to buy. 2) wait until the summer window and spend TAM on something more permanent

    Giovinco just stood around to if you truly watched him play.

    Dos Santos has that attacking and passing foot that we sorely are lacking right now. He's a past first player that is being paid to score goals and I think that why people are down on him. Yes he isn't good defensively but neither was Giovinco. Put him next to Altidore so he can pass him the pass and work with him around defense lapses! At $1.5 million I think its a gamble worth taking and him and his agent would like to take that deal to build his value back up to sing that last contract at 30

    I think they need to bring in somebody in the first 4 games of the year. It usually takes players 3-4 weeks to fully acclimate into a new environment. If we plan to make the playoffs we need the whole team clicking on all cylinders asap!!

    ^ Would be nice but it’s too late in the window to realistically have good primary options.

    I really don’t think getting things done immediately is the concern here. Better to wait and get the right player rather than be saddled with another Aketxe.

    This would be perhaps the biggest steal of a trade in MLS history so sign me up

    I'd give it a shot if I were Curtis. Worst case is that Bocanegra nixes it. If FDB gets his way then I think it could happen. Not sure why he decided to bench Villalba but FDB's former supporters mention him not liking working with South Americans. If true then he really picked the right team and they really picked the right manager.

    Boy the rumour mill has dried up. I don't understand sending Telfer to York - he broke through and made some first team appearances and did reasonably well. He would be ahead of the Endoh and a few others in my books. At 25 - I'd be surprised if he comes back.

    It has and it scares me! Maybe the front office was blindsided by the players leaving so early and had nothing lined up. Coupled with Our GM leaving and getting a new one in just might take a few months to get some good players in! But after 5-6 games that might not be early enough but we shall see !

    He'll be a DP next year. This is basically like Zlatan at LA.

    Discretionary TAM.

    MLS clubs also will have the flexibility to spend up to an additional $2.8 million of TAM, on a discretionary basis funded by the team, per year in both 2018 and 2019, which will further enhance the quality of play across the league. This injection should increase a teams ability to build their rosters with increased flexibility and help add high-quality players outside of their Designated Player spots.

    So is that just another way of increasing TAM by overspend up to $2.8M beyond TAM. In this way the overspend portion is not available for trading?

    Manning was a guest on TSN1050 this morning and he mentioned that he's trying to add a couple of more players within the month using TAM.

    I prefer Ivey and TFC needs a left winger more than a right winger imo.

    At this point I could care less whichever they brought in.

    It's kind of sad if we're still scouting based on who we've played in CCL. Sounds like the bad old days.

    Giancarlo Gonzalez linked to Galaxy, which would mean they would need to move to top spot. Though I believe Cincinnati would get a cut

    What if they traded a player to get the #1 spot?
