    Saw in another story on mlssoccer. com that Ryan Telfer was out of contract, so wonder if that is foreshadowing...that would be too bad, I liked him.

    Why loan telfer and not bring him back. Hes cheap and did great in thr cpl.

    Benezet and Morgan let go but might be back at a lower number. Mullens back is surprising. He was ok i would look at bwp or nemeth as backup 9s.

    I thought this would be the option year for Zavaleta but I guess that's next year. I was hoping we'd just be able to cut him loose. Maybe one of the expansion teams would take him in a trade?

    I think I maybe would have kept Telfer.

    Me too but if the CBA changes the financial landscape a lot then there may be no room for a guy of that level in MLS. Really depends what the basement salary level will be and if the team thinks it would be in the player's best interest to be buried in the supplemental spots. I pass no judgment until the CBA is done and dusted.

    I wonder if telfer not being able to count in the canadian championship as domestic was why they let him go?

    I don't like it at all that Telfer was not kept...

    What a horrible deal was when Zavaleta was re-signed, for how many years 3 or 4?

    Would Telfer's decision to play for Trinidad factor into the decision, I wonder? Or maybe they are cutting him at his request because he feels his best way forward is in the CPL, and he wants to sign with York9.

    Possibilities for Ryan Telfer: Sign for TFC ;Be number 20 on the squad;Train play 5 games + in the squad for Voyagers.
    CPL: Sign for York 3/4 yrs; train play every game;Be one of the stars:Same money more fun less stress.

    ^ makes sense.

    I see that thay want to bring Morgan back, but not at his option price. That makes sense. He doesn't play that often, although he's good Canadian depth and apparently very positive in the locker room. I'd bring him back for $90k.

    RE the TFC roster decisions, only one that really surprised me is Telfer. Although picking up Morrow's option after exposing him to the expansion draft is also interesting. (Perhaps Morrow would otherwise qualify for the limited free agency for veteran players, and TFC didn't want to lose him that way?) Picking up Mullins' option also triggers a mild head-scratch.

    Maybe Zavaleta will be the one yearly buy-out? Or did we use that on VdW?

    He can probably make 70k in the cpl which was what he was making on tfc.

    Don't forget Endoh was let go then came back...anything can happen with Telfer. Like Endoh, Telfer could be invited to training camp again and earn a spot back. Who knows....

    [QUOTE=Auzzy;1913348] Picking up Mullins' option also triggers a mild head-scratch.[QUOTE]

    This one doesn't bother me too much. We need a few forwards on the roster and he is a solid 3rd or 4th choice. Unfortunately he was first due to us having nobody better.

    He is definitely miles ahead of Terrence Boyd and Ben Spencer. I think he's a solid backup for MLS

    Chicago let go of Aleksandar Katai. He would be a good fit for TFC.

    Always struck me as a bit of a douche. Decent in spurts, but not consistent at all. (Playing under the crappy Paunovic didn't help.) He can play as an outside attacking mid but isn't really a winger or a striker. Would rather bring Benezet back on TAM money.

    With Morrow coming back for one more season it seems, Id like to see 3/4 signings.

    1) DP winger. Need someone who can break open a match, with a final pass, or someone can score on a half chance. This was evident in the final.

    2) This might surprise people, but Id like us to upgrade on Delgado. I love his off the ball work, and occasionally he makes some nice quick passes (Altidore pass in 2018 champions league) but he leaves a lot to be desired going forward. Id like to get someone who plays like him off the ball, and better going forward, giving us a little more threat going forward, which takes pressure off Pozuelo.

    3) Backup Striker for Altidore. I think Mullins is 3rd guy on the depth chart kind of guy. Someone who can start 10-15 matches a year, and be a somewhat threat (Agedelo?)

    4) 4th CB. I kind of get the gist that Moor is going to retire, either now or in one more year. If he retires now, go find a serviceable MLS CB (Zavaleta is our buyout this year).

    Having said all that, I think they make 2 of the 4 signings. DP winger, and 4th CB. If thats the route they go, the DP winger must be able to play striker when Jozys eventually hurt.

    I will miss Drew Moor and the way he smiled while making his tackles.

    I expect Bradley and Morgan back on lower salaries

    I'd be wary of signing Katai, IIRC he wasn't as good once he got a permanent contract

    And how he stood up for his teammates and was the voice after Bradley when dealing with various shit.

    I'm sure he'll be sticking around, either as a player or within the club.

    Nico Hasler is likely to be available via the waiver draft.

    Might be worth a punt.

    I think we already have enough midfielders.

    On a side note, I'm a little surprised that Bradley's contract hasn't been worked out yet.

    For two sides who clearly want the same thing, it's taking longer than one might expect, no?
