In Topic: I'm OK with this approach

White/Barlow/Muyl are not decent players, but guys like Duncan, tarek, valot etc have skill , they just need a stronger complementary set of players to work with.

They are themselves complimentary players. We need stronger core. Tarek is a back-up and Duncan/Valot OK complimentary starters.

Kaku is the only recent transfer that was leaked super far in advance.

Look at our most recent activity,

Jørgensen: article from Denmark saying the deal was done
Egbo and Jensen: announced by Dylan Butler in an piece after those deals were done
Pendant: rumor came out a day or two before the deal was completed
Yearwood: announced after the deal was completed even though they had been working on it pre pandemic shut down

Toney: speculation that it was Leipzig until it was reported that RBNY had a £4 million offer turned down
Lopes: only heard about interest after the initial bid was rejected and Hull insisted he wasnt for sale

RBNY tends to keep things under wraps.

None of the these transfers are big, only Kaku one was. Usually when a big one is coming, you hear about this. But I would like to be wrong and have a major player arrive without any leaks come August 12.


In Topic: BWP signs with LAFC

With all due respect to the great BWP, Diego Rossi did 75%+ of the work. He stole the ball, he advanced the ball, he crossed the ball, and set up BWP. BWP did an excellent finish, but the fact is that we don't have anyone who can do what Diego Rossi did on that play.

Rossi is amazing, and admittedly I thought BWP was damaged goods after last season, but he proved me and others wrong, since his level of play dramatically improved from last year. It's not just Rossi. BWP scored another goal in that game, which was disallowed by VAR review because another player was offside, not him. Looks like BWP was indeed just injured last year and not quite done yet. Gotta give credit when credit is due and admit when I was wrong. LAFC probably got him on the cheap too just as an insurance back-up. I don't know how long he can keep this up as he is up there in age, but at least as of now, the way he plays is one of the main things missing from Metro.

Assumption based on what? Do you want Thelwell to knock on your door and show you scans of the transfer agreement? The window isn't open yet. What do you want him or the team to do?

I want to hear something like this: https://www.mlssocce...nathan-gonzalez

 

Usually when big transfers are made, there are some reports on transfer discussions that leak out, like when we got Kaku for instance. I envy your confidence that he managed to secure a good transfer without any leaks, and hope you are right on that one. Window starts August 12, so not too long to wait.
