What a strange structure to the loan, never seen the receiving club with the option to extend. If Sims is killing it and Southhampton wants him back, can they just end the loan or do we actually have the power to keep him here through 2020?

 

I'd say that this is good because it gives us flexibility in bringing in a new DP over the summer if Sims doesn't play well, but that's kind of a moot point when we still have an unused DP spot in addition to Sims.

It is good that Sims is back.  A midfield with Kaku in the center and Sims and Royer on the wings is actually pretty good.  The issue is who will play in front and behind them.

Absolute bare minimum.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Dont confuse cheapness with incompetence.


The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

Positive signing, but we gets Sims for the most insignificant part of the entire season, could easily wind up being the full season though, but if he bounces mid season this will be a total fail of an experiment.

It seems Philly fans have signed up on metrofanatic to vote for themselves (in 'What team do you hate more?') . No real fan of this team would vote anything other than DC.

Absolutely a great way to structure the deal, assuming the option is entirely ours.   That said... yawn

We have the option to extend? Do we have that little faith in our major offseason move that we have to put in a contingency in the deal to have an out? Yuck.

excited!

He was good for us last year hope for better this year!!

 

No shame in not being able to crack the 18 for a team in 9th (9th!!) place in the EPL.  1 over Arsenal

 

Still want another 1 player at Sim level + another 1-2 Young DP prospects.
