So you are fine then rolling out the same squad besides Adams? With Muyl probably being the #1 wing option aside from Royer?


The team is young and should be better overall

Crazy note;

 

If Royer scores 14 goals all comps this year he will be 4th all time scoring for Metro.

Well, if he scores 20, he ties Henry!

In a little over 2 seasons, he is already 8th:

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

The team must have a bunch of unused cap space just sitting around. 

I know Parker was probably expensive but still

last year 99% sure we were over the cap (without account for transfer fees).  We had allocation money to knock some salaries down either from that year or previous year, but they did spend stuff last year.  Unfortunately a lot of those pricey guys weren't good enough.

 

This year i still think we may get at least 2 signings between now and the end of year though our roster is pretty full atm.  We currently have 3 TAM players which is the most we ever had. We don't spend like Atlanta but we do spend more than half of the league I would imagine on first team, without considering that we spend more on USL/youth than most teams in the league.

 

Hopefully though they bring in one more TAM level guy to top off the squad.

I wonder how many more TAM guys can fit under the cap. Because you know Long is either going to get sold or get at least a TAM deal this year.
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.

every team gets 1.2mm per year and then has discretionary of 2.8mm.  So if you bought them all down to $150k assuming $1.5mm max salary every team can have at least 3.  Most TAM signings are closer to 1.0mm cap hit so we should be able to handle 4 players if Red Bull wanted to pay the $2mm out of pocket and use most of their TAM.
