This screams "agent trying to extract more money from Miami" to me.

In Topic: Will (when) we sign new players?

Edwards - Duncan is better, and domestic
 
Reyes - Parker was better and domestic
 
Harper - Kaku is a better player, I know different position but still one attacking player for another and we got worse.
 
Fabio - Upgrade over White/Barlow but no chance MLS All Star quality 9.
 
Coronel - I dont know enough but was GK that big of an issue?
 
 
Overall we have a worse starting XI right now that we did when we lost the playoffs.
 
 
 
I dont care if weve shed salary if we dont go out and use it.

Kyle Duncan, who made a whopping 2 appearances for the Valenciennes reserves before coming back to NY had even less of a resumée than Harper does.

Duncan's level of experience now is still arguably lesser than Edwards'.

I'm not saying that those two are world beater signings, but let's not get carried away with the doom and gloom.

In Topic: Kenan Hot to leave academy

Let's not forget that we've also seen this movie before with this family. Sacir Hot trialed quite a bit in Europe before signing his HG contract.

Philly fans seemed to like him in his appearances. It sounds like he was brought in as the backup, but didn't serve as the gameday backup because of the intl slot, instead getting loaned down to USL. Blake got hurt and their homegrown GK, who served as the gameday backup played really well. Curtin rode the hot hand and Coronel didn't get much of a chance after that, except when the other backup got hurt.

Coronel was loaned to Philly in 2019 to back up Blake, but yeah, this doesn't make sense unless they are moving Jensen and think that Coronel can start.
