Yikes, I can kind of see them cashing out especially if Long wants the move to happen.

At this rate 90% of the USMNT is going to be playing in the Bundesliga.

Long knows he gets Parker money in a year if he stays. He sees Reem and Miazga. I think we are ok.

Of course they are. Hes the best CB in MLS. Might be the best CB in the USMNT pool. F#ck Parker. This is what I was really worried about.

If they get a really good offer and he has the ambition I cant fault them for moving him. Just makes the loss of Ndam worse and our off season much more problematic. Cause what are the odds of this team spending big on a DP attacker and then getting a stud CB? Id say zero.

F#ck Parker.


Ridiculous comment.
RB defense allowed 33 goals in 34 league games.
By far the best in MLS.
Sounders 2nd with 37. ATL conceded 44.
Credit goes to our entire D.

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

i think that's due to the lenient regulations on foreign players, as opposed to the EPL. 

 

if Long is sold, it'll mean we get 650k in GAM, iirc.

Good gravy dont take things so literally.

Love Parker. Want him to stay. Need him to stay. Great player. Ditto multiple players on the roster. Blah blah blah.

Pay the man now, possibly with an agreement to let him leave in a season.

basically the second a respectable bid comes in they have to either pay him or risk unrest.  impossible to risk even delaying a move to a better league with at least a 10x pay increase.

Comes down to what Long wants.  If he wants to go then we have to sell him because you can't keep someone around who doesn't want to be here.  Kills a locker room.  Would be a big loss though.  That back 4 is the biggest part of the team right now.

Will his head get turned like Adams? I thought Adams was mediocre down the stretch after it came out that he had one foot out the door to Leipzig.

Of course Euro teams interested
Different scenario then Adams
Have to guess they are renegotiating a contract very similar to Parkers right now. For top players they renegotiate early

Ream has had a pretty respectable career abroad, hasn't he? Mainly in the Championship but he's made a lot of money and played a large role in a team getting promoted. I wouldn't use that as evidence for why Long wouldn't want to play in Europe.

 

The jury is still out on Miazga's career but I'm assuming he's making a decent chunk of change, too.

 

Let's just pay the man and keep him happy so he doesn't have to think about any of the above.

I remember hearing a story about his first few days over there. Hes chilling in the locker room and one of the players is asking questions about MLS. A question about salary came up and went something like:

Player: How much did u get paid over there?
Ream: 50k.
Player: Nice.
Ream: A year.
Player: (confused silence)
