    Honestly it has given me encouragement that Vanney has been flexible on this front when 4-3-3 was a disaster against Independiente he switched to 4-4-2. In both games this season he has adapted during the game and it has helped. You really need a team that can play 4-4-2 ....3-5-2...4-5-1...and 4-3-3 and the different variations. Trying to force a single rigid system is wrong. You have to play with the best 11 players available & they need to be adaptable.

    Yes, the flexibility is good. Iím just hoping that once Pozo comes they arenít dead set on forcing a 4-3-3 until we have the pieces in place. There have been more than enough failed experiments in the past...

    OK, frees up an int spot but whether this gives salary relief is another matter.

    Should scrub his salary off the books and that's good enough.

    If that's the case, that would be helpful.

    Things seem a little unsure as to how this exactly is done but I would be surprised if there isn't some relief.

    No buyout though. Mutual consent is the dissolution of the contract mutually. TFC terminating his contract based on conduct as they could have done would probably have had to be a buyout as I couldn't see the MLSPA letting that go.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he waived a golden handshake so he stop training on his own and go sit on a beach in Dubai or somewhere till he can find a club in the summer.

    Typically the Mutual consent happens when the player has found another team. I wouldn't expect someone to walk away from the better part of $1,000,000 unless he had alternative means.

    The VDW saga probably took so long because TFC likely were working with the league to see what they could do. Iíd doubt weíd be negatively penalized/ cap harm or else why bother doing anything.

    My speculation is the TAM money and Int roster spot are now both available

    Good point. That would be fantastic news for TFC if heís indeed headed to another club (with no $ spent on buyout).

    I havenít been this impressed since we pulled the wool over Cincinnatiís eyes for hagglund

    Yeah, my suspicion is this too.

    $150K of cap space lost but all that TAM & an int slot now available.

    Looking more & more like another move for an international TAM player before the end of next week.

    &


    as Platt just speculated, this likely means the yearly buyout was used on Aketxe.

    TFC should have tons tam money to spend with vdw, VV, aketxe off the books and the hagglund trade.

    I have no idea what the salary cap implications are. I would guess partial but not full cap relief. I'll wait to see if Curtis or Manning say anything on it.

    Good riddance. Mavinga is free to go with him next.

    Just for the record, I thought VDW would be a really great player for us, being a great passer out back would have further enhanced the teams cohesion.

    No, or they would have just bought him out already.

    I thought the Spanish team Aketxe went to picked up his contract? Perhaps we didn't buy out either one.

    Yeah let's all be honest, we don't actually know what vdW leaving now means in terms of roster and cap hit. Oliver Platt said so himself at the top of his Twitter thread: "I imagine that might mean partial but not full cap relief for TFC." If it was full cap relief, then they likely would have done it earlier. I see no mechanism for that in MLS; otherwise lots of teams would do some kind of "mutual consent" thing. If vdw were going straight to another team, i.e. trade, then there would be cap relief. But they didn't announce a trade, most transfer windows are closed (unless he were moving within MLS), and "mutual consent" means something else.

    I doubt we ever get full disclosure about this. Maybe some hints based on where vdW goes next. Folks here in this thread will comment based on how they would like to spin it for the club (good or bad).

    Oliver Platt says we used the 2019 buyout on Aketxe. He was on $1.3 million last year. Probably CŠdiz didn't want to pick up all of that.
