Curious how many people here think we are ok with who we have to backfill for Tyler, and how many think we need to add?

Same for Muyl/Valot's spot.   

Perfect world, I would like to see additions in both spots. That being said, I don't see 2 big splashes being made. I think even 1 big splash may be wishful thinking. In terms of prioritizing the needs, I would like to see a major reinforcement brought in for the wing above all.

Can minors sign binding work contracts?
Even if yes, those contracts would have to be lucrative.
Otherwise, what minor would ever sign?

Adams signed, Mines signed.  Freddy Adu signed.  Plenty of kids turn pro before they turn 18.

 

I'm no contract lawyer, but maybe since they are under 18 their parent/guardian has to sign.  

 

As far as how lucrative it has to be, I guess that depends on the kid and what options he has.  In Mines' case, he apparently had a full ride to Stanford;  the offer from RBNY had to be pretty good to get him to pass on that.  Other kids may not have such good options and would take much less.

USA registrations used to average one per year.
In recent years, 5 to 9.

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

https://sbisoccer.co...gainst-dortmund Tyler has trained with us all week,” said Rangnick. “He had a few problems with his adductor after the weekend, but he’s taken part in every session and will definitely be in the squad.” “Given that he’s only been here just over two weeks, we’re really happy with him so far. We knew that he’s a player who wouldn’t take long to settle in, but there’s still a difference between being with us for a few months and years or just a couple weeks.” Adams made his Leipzig debut last weekend in their 1-1 friendly draw against Galatasaray. If Adams does get playing time he would follow several other USMNT players who have appeared in Germany’s top-flight this campaign. “With all respect to the MLS and his development, there’s a difference between being one of the best – if not the best – midfielders in the MLS, and playing in the Bundesliga. So we’ll have to take things step by step, but he’ll definitely be in the squad on Saturday.”

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Yeah, there is a difference. 

 

Adams took strides with his first touch and on-ball composure this last year, but he still have a lot to work on in that area to play on a good team in a top-4 league.

Tyler and RB Leipzig take on Pulisic and Dortmund tomorrow (Sat.) at 12:30 on FS1


"They better keep playing that RB Arena update because that unbuilt stadium is the only positive thing about this soft-drink-selling, coached-by-a-dumbass, trading-good-players-for-shit, hopeless, retarded, club." - MetroFanatic

"It was always six weeks away. Every month, [Nick Sakiewicz] would say, we're six weeks away from the stadium. It's been the longest six weeks of my life." - Mike Petke

How much you think Fox tried to bribe those two teams to get Pulisic and Adams out there?

Any surprise injuries on either squad?
