I think both of these guys were brought in as equals to what we have and honestly I could see them both being the starters soon not just here for depth.
I'm fine with the moves but in the context of still missing attacking assets and since were in a salary cap league where let's be serious you can find good cheap American options at both GK and RB it makes me less excited.
The starting 11 was a playoff team last year (BWP barely played, Duncan and even Buck were better than 2019 Murillo, Meara for Robles is arguably a drop-off but could go either way really).
Yes, the league improves etc, depth is very youth-heavy and the Taxi situation is worrying me a lot, AND of course we need to improve the starting lineup (which would help with current starters providing proper/adequate depth). That said, "not in contention for a playoff spot" is a clear exaggeration, even with the non-existent offseason we've had.
I dont feel the league overall has jumped this much in quality in one off-season before, and weve gone backwards.
The fucking Crapids just got some DP attacking asset. SKC is targeting another multi million transfer DCU just got a winger with World Cup experience.
