In Topic: Kaku wants out

23 February 2021 - 12:18 PM

I tend to agree that arbitration will find Kaku was notified, but still looks a touch crappy on the org. The contract notification procedure should not be a unilateral email to a third party... Need to get acknowledgement from the player. 

An option is by definition a unilateral contract, so there does not need to be any consent, acknowledgement or agreement. Further, the club is probably prohibited from contacting players directly about contract matters when the player is repped by an agent. Im sure there are probably MLS rules about this, if I had to guess.

Hamlett sucks for many reasons, but not gonna go crazy blaming him over this. At arbitration (the results of which we will learn little about, probably, given the nature of arbitration), Im sure the arbitrator will find that this guy Pearson was Kakus agent and that Kaku effectively had notice that the option was exercised. Still, its sucks that this happened because it gave Kaku the opportunity to pull this stunt.

In Topic: Stoke right back Tom Edwards

Duncan inability to use his left foot to the point he actively runs around it to clear with his right makes him a liability at leftback in anything but emergency use. Rather see egbo there than Duncan

Edwards had played a fair bit on the left as well, apparently.  Theres always a small chance he winds up there.

Honestly, after all that's happened, I doubt he suits up for this team ever again. 

Yeah, cant see it happening.

I actually laughed out loud at this.
