Why though? Is this to free up roster space? I feel like he would still be a decent option off the bench if we need a goal. 

He was barely getting minutes as is, an now with the new guy, it would only be worse.   Muyl is the defensive guy off the bench, Omir the offensive first choice, and that's before Valot comes back (assuming he does)

That third round pick is gold, baby! Gold!
FCC just got a new HC, as well.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Great skill on the ball, but doesn't do enough off of it to fit the system. 

 

I believe this makes him the first legit homegrown player to play for another MLS team, no? I'm not counting Brandon Allen.

We have a glut of wingers at this point and I'm sure that Etienne wants more minutes. I'm very comfortable with having Muyl, Omir, and Ivan available off the bench.

It's also possible that they're freeing up a spot for a CM from within the league.

Why arent you counting Allen?

Our only two league loans were:
Ryan Meara to NYCFC and Brandon Allen to Minnesota.

Unfortunately he was worse the Muyl at the winger spot. Got a chance to start with Alex out and basically didn't make any impact. No big loss there.

i think it's criminal that Muyl was the favorite over DE7.  Give DE7 Muyl's minutes and he'd be way ahead in development.  But, I guess DE7 "doesnt fit the system".  BS.  Whatever, good luck DE7

He played seven competitive minutes for us and nine for Minnesota. He technically counts, but Etienne is the first that the team has a real emotional investment in. I don't disagree with the move, but it does kind of suck seeing a real HG player with history at the club departing.

Bullshit..

 

He "doesn't fit"  because that clown shoe Armas refused to use him...

 

FFS it's not a coincidence that we are better when he's on the field.....

 

 

Well, we don't have USOC or CCL or whatever so why would we need the depth... And we just got a scrub loaned to us for 2 and a half months...

 

 

Hate this fucking club

So DE7 is a star and Sims is a scrub.  Got it.

It's a loan.  It helps him get a chance for more minutes.

He was inconsistent but he also was the best attacking wing option off the bench (better than Omir).

Why not loan them Ivan? Guy is stealing a salary here.

There's an option to buy, and I'd be pretty surprised if Etienne remains with the team next season.

Who else do we have who can play on the left?  Always seems wonky when we take Royer off and plug someone there out of their natural position.  But yeah, Ivan's taking up a lot of salary for his almost non-existent minutes.    We'd likely have to subsidize his wages if we sent him out.

Makes sense and hope he gets more minutes and shows his best. Good luck to DE7. Ill be rooting for him.

oddly enough the guy who bumps him Sims is in the similar position as DE - going on loan as minutes for 2019 wouldve been scarce

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.
