his big knock is that he tends to get injured. he'd be a july pickup that'd be medium-risk, but if he clicks for a bit, this could be even a more fun team to watch, no matter who's in the front 6. 


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

MLS with a new initiative.  With how we run things, have to believe that it helps us a lot. We scout and bring in plenty of kids under the age of 20 and have proven to develop kids pretty well.

 

Major League Soccer is in the final stages of adding a new pot of money intended to incentivize teams to identify and sign young international players who could be sold at a profit in the future. The “Youth Transfer Fund,” as it’s being called by people familiar with the discussions, would give teams a large chunk of money to sign young players from outside the league—either international or young American players with non-MLS affiliated clubs, multiple league sources told The Athletic.

Sources said the new rule, which is in the final stages of development, will allow teams to use $3 million through the end of the 2022 season. The fund would be restricted to players aged 20 or younger, and the goal is for those players to come to the league, develop, and potentially be sold for a profit in later seasons.

A source confirmed the fund is expected to go into effect when the secondary transfer window opens on July 10.

It gives us money to do it/keep doing it, but it incentivizes every other team to do it as well, resulting in more competition for what is a limited pool of talent. Good for the league, but not necessarily great for us.

Thats a good point.  But I lean towards it still being better because it gives us more resources to go get these kids.

Piatti is available. He would be a great buy!

Anyone know where we're at with our funny money funds? I'd assume Piatti would take close to a record breaking amount of allocation to bring in.

I just read Geoff Cameron is testing the waters for a return to MLS, he has a clause that Stoke has to sell him if relegated.

 

Do not want him here, at all, but DC is 2nd on the allocation list, I wouldn't mind if he went there.


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I love that its only been a few years since DC blew all their resources on aging vets to revitalize the team, and after that understandably didn't bring them any closer to success they respond by doing the exact same thing but with guys 10x the price.

Yeah, it's the famous "Try again, fail bigger" approach.

If Lee nguyen cost s shit load of allocation money then we can only imagine what Piatti would cost.

Seems like RB shys away from older players but he would still add an extra level of class to our squad.

I dont see it happening though

5 year plan
