I'd like to keep Grella around and hopefully they can come to terms. He brings something different from all the other players we have.
Looking at our squad though, with Royer, BWP, Sacha, Keita, and maybe both Veron and Grella coming back not much room on our roster to upgrade the attack. Only so many people can get on the field at a time.
Exactly.. And if we have 1 International spot, we are limited there as well. First call has to be made towards formation. I would probably go with a 4 man back line because we are obviously keeping Collin and a 3 man back line doesn't suit him. But in a 4 man back line he's a beast.
If we are going with a 4 man back line then Sacha has to go. Or Sacha has to drop back as one of the 6's. Sacha can cover some ground, but he just doesn't do it quickly. Maybe that could work as a 6.
We have to add a defender and an attacker. And the attacker has to be a SERIOUS player. The half-additions like Keita just aren't enough. There has to be a no-doubter addition. A player where there isn't a huge question if he's good. The question is just how good.
I don't even know what we could offer, but I'd try hard for David Accam. He has his green card and is a really good player. Recently turned 27. Had some semi-public issues with the coach in Chicago. Rightfully had a problem with being treated the way he was.
Trade Sacha to New LA for a boatload of Allocation money and move that for Accam.
