    So I guess Andrea Lombardo is out of the question.

    I wouldn’t rule out Pozo moving on. Those kinds of family problems are very hard to deal with from far away. It may be too much to ask of him.
    This is all quite possible. Would be very interesting, too. Oso should go to Spain.

    If a European team came in for him I'm sure he'd go, for the challenge. Don't see it happening, though.

    I don't see Delgado going, either.
    Division 2 in Spain or a lower Divison One team would suit Oso very well in terms of his ambitions. But very hard to compare skill levels. And you are right, teams are likely to have players like him.

    Soteldo wasn't bad. he came as advertised IMO - but he had no one to play with - like at all!

    Totally agreed. I have no beef with Soteldo - he needs to release the ball sooner, sometimes, but is very skilled indeed. Just with the apparent lack of thinking behind the acquisition.

    Hey bud. Just been lurking. Last 2 seasons I kinda tuned out.

    Last game I was at was when we dumped DC outta the playoffs. Was in 126 infront of the DC staff and family & oh boy words were exchanged with every goal lol. It was hilarious.

    I think half our row got kicked out by full time. Security had no sense of humour about the situation whatsoever lol.

    Stoked for next year! Nice to see you're still around!

    Aron Winter is back? Oh thank god. Is Joey Melo ready for the first team yet?

    Yeah that was me last year.

    Amusing story re DCU. You helped wreck every good memory Rooney might have had about MLS!

    Now that you back, let me catch you up… Amadou Sanyang has looked good.

    More atrociously overhyped news on Jakeehl, which is to say nothing new but the hype.

    JMR played for us 12 times?

    Of the young guys, he was less impactful then Okello & Priso & Nelsen.

    Like, I hope he blossoms into something good or great because that would be just great to see - nothing in his play so far indicates he will do that.

    Jesus January cannot come soon enough. Think I may have to take a week off.

    The apex of this will be a story about how we are swapping this kid for Insigne.

    Hey, let the media hype JMR all they want if it increases that transfer fee. Sounds quite likely he will be leaving the summer at the point so the more we can get, the better.

    The JMR hype is really incomprehensible. There's been nothing in his documented play to suggest he's worth even half this hype.

    It's not people being upset at the hype; we're concerned they are raising expectations for him beyond what he's prepared for. Yes, he has physical skills and speed, but he hasn't shown any of the readiness for the mental competitiveness aspect that Alphonso Davies had.

    But beyond any of that -- as the best thing that could happen is him going to an u18 team like Liverpool or Arsenal -- I think we're all just a little cynical about bullshit football narratives from a press that has given up actual beat reporting and just aggregates other peoples' rumors wherever possible.

    Definitely looking like we will have two DP spots to fill soon. I assume Insigne and a 9 will be incoming.

    So Soteldo on a nearly 2 mil CAD a year, with SP injecting 1 million for the buy AND trying to find an investor for a further 4 million (presumably CAD too)

    If you'd prefer, many of us have lots of practice watching the US approach of "Oh my gawd, he's starting in the 3rd division of a random Euro country & scored a goal - he should start for the MNT" & could probaby mimic that.

    Hypothetically speaking if Jozy was front loaded as Singh indicted and is only 1.5 this year, could we not buy him down, as he’s under the 1.6 threshold for funny money?

    I’m hardly an expert on the arcane MLS rules, but I think it is clear that if you are a DP you are a DP. But maybe there is a loophole created originally for LA - did they do it when they had four DP’s?
