    I think neither Messi nor Ronaldo will come to MLS.

    Life is too comfortable for them somewhere in Europe & they don't need the $ MLS would offer.

    I'd just like to point out that Miami is the 6th most important city in the world for Ultra-High-Net-Worth-Individuals (UHNWIs - aka the 0.002%), just behind London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Shanghai. 'Important' to them means lifestyle choices and things to do, so I wouldn't be surprised if either of them don't at least consider it.

    Iím surprised to see that Charlotte already fired their head coach, especially considering they are just outside a playoff spot. Another shit FO maybe?

    I dunno. Fabrizio keeps pushing this one but there's not a peep over here.

    This league is so pinball-like compared to the tactical discipline in Europe, I can see a guy his age getting really badly beaten when isolated, if he can even stay healthy. Remember how quickly Danny D went down hill, and he blamed the travel as a big part of it.

    Standard paid a release clause - NYC didn't figure out how to keep him.

    In "the low seven figures", apparently. Wowza. Million-dollar transfers for managers now. MLS is coming up in the world.

    Deila is the sort of manager MLS teams should be looking for - a guy down on his luck after experiences with top leagues in B level countries like Scotland or Belgium who is looking for another option. Doesn't always work out (see DeBoer) but that level can get teams places. Deila took an underachieving team & made them champs in a grinding cup event. That's a skill set teams should be finding for their managers.

    DeBoer is not a comparable. Maybe Hernan Losada is a recent comparable that didn't work out? But agreed, these types of managers should be looked at by some MLS clubs.

    As someone who is 25% German, this would make me so sad.

    Another big time signing coming to MLS. A 23 year old coming from England is a big deal.

    Sometimes, just every once in a while, during a media interaction, I'd like a peekaboo into BBradley's make-up...
    A little cheeky push back, some Yogi Berra 'isms'... a la Gattuso's recent sono un gattino o leone?

    Cucho will be great in MLS IMO.

    I think his profile. Guys that have had a few years in Europe as opposed to plucking the Barco, Soteltdo and Almada types is the way to go if you're gonna splash big fees

    Wow Cucho is official. I agree with Areathrasher, that's a significant signing. He should do well in MLS.

    Translation: Tigres is analysing the offers by Yeferson Soteldo, he is based on his indisciplines and his null commitment to make pre-time with the team. We'll see what's going on with the future

    My fake translation: somebody likes to party

    Someone was asking for the "proof" that Yeferson was a locker room cancer a few weeks ago.......

    Though the DP tag is still a hefty one, and he does come off as quite social too, Salcedo still gives me a better impression when it comes to commitment and team spirit. Glad we offloaded Yefe.
