In a 4 man back line he would be bad, three man back line may be solid.  But not sure which system Jesse wants to use next year though

This.  Farrell is a weird one. He's almost a tweener on a 4 man back line.  Don't love him at RB, but also doesn't have the qualities that translates to a pure CB.   I wouldn't get Farrell because I think Murillo is basically the same, but with more upside.  

 

 

I am really, really curious to see Farrell with good coaching and a good environment though.

Lloyd Sam dropped by DC. I'm not saying bring him back, just glad for him to be out of that shithole.

We really need to hold onto him and Mines. They are the next Miazga/Adams.

Has Mines had any interest from abroad?

List of players protected from expansion draft also released on 12/10. Should tell us something.

Remember when Marsch said that we needed a difference maker and we signed Dilly Duka?


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.

Still don't quite get that one. In retrospect would've been better to loan up Valot for the 2 spot starts Duka got when there was no way the starters would touch the pitch (Portland after Cinci OC semi and meaningless regular season finale vs DC iirc).

He has 1 goal in 186 minutes played in the regular USL season.

He also has 1 garbage time goal in 57 playoff minutes.

Let's not hype the kid up too much yet.

So it looks like total TAM is 4 mil next year. Each team getting 1.2 mil from the league with another 2.8 allowed put of each individual teams pocket.

This is huge news for the teams willing to spend that extra 2.8 mil. You know that TFC and NYFC are going to improve this offseason. I doubt RB uses that optional out of pocket 2.8 mil

Right. That $2.8 million is going to be where teams separate from one another. BWP makes a lot less than Jozy, but Id take #99 any day. Not sure how much of difference a $1m v. $5m DP is, if you sign the right $1m DP.

The difference is going to be how many Royers or Vazquezes teams sign. If were good with our one and TFC goes out and adds two players at that level...
