The number one need this offseason is DP attacking talent and Thelwell has yet to address that need. So to me its hard to view his tenure as anything but a failure here so far.

He had all last year to scout the team and league as people here were saying. Now the season is looming and there are STILL no DPs coming in, only Kaku going the other way which makes the problem worse.

Like scouse said above me, I don't see how the new additions move the needle here. Where are the skill players? You need skill players to win MLS Cup and RBNY only have a declining Royer. With Clark it's too early to tell. But either way it's well short of what is needed.

2-4 senior roster spots are still open. There are sixteen players currently there. Eight on the supplemental roster.

Ive been pretty negative surrounding our 19 and 20 teams saying we would just get in but not win a playoff game.
 
Right now I would have to say I dont think we make the playoffs if im looking at the roster as is.


Certainly a good year to not give a shit about having to miss games at RBA, I'll be watching from home but I think this team is gonna be absolute trash.

Now 1-3 spots? Add Harper that makes it 2, assuming Coronel is a wash (e.g. Jensen out). I'd really like those 2 to be DPs!

Or 1 DP, 1 U22, which would be more likely with this team

Loan Carmona down, exchange Coronel for Jensen, opens up 1 international spot.

Have been active in the market for a LB, another CB, and were looking for a DP attacker at one point.

Dont know how that all shakes out with the senior roster and international spots running out unless some current players are on the move or getting GCs.

Pendant, Egbo, Jensen the most likely candidates to exit if they are still trying to add to the roster

If Coronel, Harper, Diarra are confirmed they will have made 6 signings that should contribute to the senior roster this season, and 9 overall (Estrella, Carmona, Lewis), so unsure if they are motivated to continue the roster overhaul with more player movement in and out.
