in my opinion high quality American CBs are the most valuable non-DP asset in MLS.  You dont move them unless you get a brinks truck, rarely does a team trade for one and regret it (i.e. Zimmerman, Opera, Parker, etc.)

 

that said with both on deals that expire this season have to look at other alternatives to hedge.  Ideally we lock both of them up for non DP deals though to avoid free agency.


Agree; our improvement late in the season had a lot to do with Parker reverting to his pre-Armas form.

 

But who knows what the new brass thinks.

I know this may be hard for some of you believe, but the average European or South American soccer player with passing-at-best knowledge of MLS isn't looking at the prospect of living in the New York Metropolitan area while playing for a team with top facilities and a winning record over the last decade and thinking, "fuck that." 

 

The problem has been Hamlett sucking ass at his job. Not a dearth of quality players who would be willing to sign here.

Plus, an alternate pathway to exposure (back) to Europe. 

 

Seems to have not worked out, but this is the sort of move that makes me excited this transfer period. The Portuguese connection is Thelwell - I wonder how many guys he has dossiers on. 

 

I think this is an indicator at least Long is moving and they need replacements.
