I'm risking a thread split here

10 February 2021 - 12:16 PM

I'm risking a thread split here but the discussion of how transfer dollars are spent piqued my interest and I totaled up the inbound/outbound transfers since 2011.

 

According to Transfermrkt, we've sold players for about $14.3M and spent $13.7M on inbound transfers. Throw in the a few more mil to account for building the academy and USL team from the ground, and it looks like at minimum Red Bull is reinvesting what they make in sales.

 

Still some fair questions on whether you'd expect a bit more in the 'inbound' column given the money Red Bull is saving on guys like Adams and Clark, or given their deep pockets to begin with. Just thought it was interesting how close they've come to breaking even on the transfers.


Is Yearwood a worthy DP?

Doyle is walking back his original prediction a bit:

He has our only DP on the bench lol

 

imo Yearwood is basically CCJ but a little bit better


Parker on the trade block?

A source has told me that #RBNY are shopping CB Tim Parker and that #LAFC and #LAGalaxy are in the mix for his services. Both teams need a CB.

 

No idea how reliable Will Forbes is but if there is one player on our roster who is arguably expendable with decent trade value it's Parker. I don't see any strikers on LA's roster worth pursuing and the only guy on LAFC I'd even consider is... well, you know...

 

If it happens it'll probably be for a bag of MLS funny money.

Guys: Don't worry, MLS has reached out to Dana White and he is now adding a soccer pitch to his Fight Island complex so the season is going to happen!
