Here is our current salary guide;
There are some glaring examples of guys not performing to their salary and underperforming, and as someone who watched 90% of our USL matches I feel confident speaking about those guys as well.
I have no idea what Keita's salary being on this guide means, maybe we didn't pay him last year and it just counted as this year so no idea if we can use his 325k on other people.
I like RZA but I'm not 100% on using 800k on a guy like him, I don't think CCJ is ready to step up like Tyler did he needs a season of getting more time integrating so if RZA comes back its going to have to be a lot less.
The elephant in the room IMO is Robles at 460k. I love him you love him, all time best GK but in a league all about value and Mera sitting on 120k with no a huge loss of skill. We could use that 350k to get someone of serious quality in this league, just a thought.
Collin on 450k, he's 1000% gone. Seems like a great guy with a love for this team and the game. Move him to coaching, I'm sure he's helped Parker and Long.
Rivas at 450k, again 10000% gone try to get something back but even just getting his salary off the books is huge.
Ivan at 250k, I would axe him but no way we do that after just picking him up. He's too slow a player and his technique is solid just everything seems slow motion. I don't think he will ever be left footed Royer.
Redding at 125k again gone, get something or just get rid don't care.
Adams 110k is probably going to be free.
Parker on 115 is going to need huge bump
Murillo on 88 huge bump not as big as parker and long but bump.
Long on 73, again huge bump similar to where Parker will be.
ABang on 68 should finally be gone, hopefully he goes somewhere functional just for his health and safety.
Those are just my opinions on guys who need bumps or cuts, but the guys that seem locks to go; Collin, Rivas, Redding, Abang alone save us 1,100,00 which is two players of Royers quality, add on RZA and adams which probably are gone were looking at 2,300,00 of salary saved going into next year which should be 2/3 top quality guys, but again keeping Long / Parker / Murillo is going to need huge salary upgrades which could take up 2,000,000.
The front office has a chance to make us even stronger next year without that much difficulty let just see how they do.
