In Topic: BWP on trading block?!

04 June 2019 - 02:29 PM

I had heard this during the game on Sunday.
Supposedly BWP asked for a contract extension,
which was denied, then asked for a trade.
There may have been some interest,
but RB may want a big transfer fee.
Our record lately without him has been good.
Can we actually win anything without him?

I dont think a team outside of MLS (maybe a a rich middle eastern team) would pay a transfer for BWP.

He could probably fetch some Allocation money in a trade but like other ppl said, were not cap strapped and have one DP slot free.

Were also not known to make major summer signings either.

We have different definitions of handling business. The track record shows that older guys who you can't categorize as athletic anymore don't cut it in this league. De Rossi's legs have gone. Once that goes he's got nothing left.
No Etienne and Omir are obviously not better but there is something to be said to for sticking to your philosophy of building and developing your youth. When foreign clubs do it we applaud them but when we try we have to spend on a retread who can't stay healthy. Robben and RIbery can't stay on the field any longer for a prolonged period of time. Robben may still have something left in the tank to contribute in the Dutch league but to get him here he ain't coming cheap. And there's a reason that Ribery is being linked to play in the middle east and Australia. We should be more creative with our signings. Not sitting on our hands either that's where our frustration lies. But we say hell no to any older guy coming here for one last payday. 

Im open if they want to come for reasonable money that wont put a massive strain on the cap like younger studs like Ivan and Jorgenson are. I wish we had a Peguey Lulandula (sp) type option in midfield to bring off the bench and offer some experience to this squad.

The name of the game clearly isnt putting the best possible squad on the field.

Farm team indeed.

Even if the academy pumps out a tyler adams every other year it will make very little difference in the long run bc we wont have the new phenom play with the existing young phenom bc the first guy would have been sold already.

The fact that this team did nothing to replace Adams at that CM spot shows you that winning  isnt at the top of their priority list.

Ppl bring up that this is a very similar team that won the SS last year.  But lets not forget that most of our opponents FOs didnt sit on their hands this offseason and last summer window. Last summers big signings like Ibra and Rooney have settled and are paying dividends.
