If folks want to trim fat, manoel, meara vanzeer and yearwood are the guys you cut.


What you desire and the reality of the situation are two different things. It is much easier for a subpar FO to get rid of guys who have loans expiring, have options, or are out of contract than trying to sell/trade/find takers for players under contract.

Dylan can only play wing back. Harper plays better further up the field.

Yes, they invested in Mina but he like tolkin should fight for his place in the starting 11 that is why you bring back Duncan . Duncan is a starter in this league.

Plus, there is a possibility that someone will pay for tolkin this summer so we have to be prepared for that.

If tolkin does not leave, then you trade Duncan for allocation money. There will alway be a market for him.

If folks want to trim fat, manoel, meara vanzeer and yearwood are the guys you cut.

Duncan is a starter if your goal is to be bad to average which is what we have been with Duncan as a starter. Also no one is going trade any serious amount of allocation for him. We know what he is which is not that good its time to take some risks and actually reset the roster with a new coach instead of trying to patch it together with 1-2 new signings every year. The roster is average needs a harder reset. Can get rid of harper and Nealis as far as Im concerned but at least they have a lot more versatility which adds value. The senior roster is bloated and average and could do with a decent churn that should come with trades and not renewing options

for the record i'd rather have Manoel on the team next year than Duncan.  As a 3rd striker given his age and the better flashes he's shown chance that under a new coach he finds consistency hes been missing.  That said there arent more than 4-5 players on this team that are not replaceable of the right replacement appears.

The more out the door the better.

Should we be concerned about the order of birthday wishes? Does it denote favoritism? And if so, is it a vanguard situation or a save the best for last deal?

What about a joint birthday post option? Or that will be not fair to Donkor and Ofori, because everyone else gets their own post?

I recall having to sit through a heated, 45-minute debate at work about moving employee birthday recognition to once a month, and whether or not people in the office should have to sign individual cards for each birthday person, or if it made more sense to have one monthly shared card to be signed.   One of the more painful, Dilbert-esque experiences of my very long corporate career.
