Next big money Upgrade should be tarping iff the entire upper deck
Watching the 2 conf semi finals last night...you can see the huge gap in talent and depth compared to teams that are ambitious and have the win first mentality
Atlanta brought in Remedi and Hyndman off the bench to oplay CM, those two guys would be starters for us.
Kaye was injured for lafc and they brought in Nguyen to start at CM. Experienced, skillful. Diomande then came in...we have Barlow. Thats not even including their tier 1 DPs vs what we have
If the FO doesnt go on a major...i mean major spending spree with 2 Dps and maxing out the tam/gam for the role player types other teams have i just mentioned then they should then reinvest in ALOT more tarp
With 567 teams in MLS next year id bet someone signs BWP if hes not picked up by us.
A smart savvy MLS 4.0 team could work him into the fold to supplement the younger big money core (atlanta comes to mind..they do it with .lawrentewitz, parkhurst, merem...a fantastic insurance policy for martinez)
Give bwp a full offseason to rehab and have him be a spot starter next year with a deep paycut. I dont see them doing that though since winning is not #1 in owenerahips list. Hed be taking away mins from someone they could potentially sell.
