I find it a little worrisome that we currently have 5 midfielders on the roster, including Rafa (who blows) and Lindpere (may be on his way out). Where is all the depth gonna come from? We have no draft picks, I suppose they could do a big camp of free agents again but this seems a bit excessive to have that big of a hole in the roster.

We have more players coming in, we have guys like Lade and Barklage who can play mid if needed.

I also think we'll sign a bunch of depth players at near to salary minimum in our non senior roster spots 20-28. Remember, the team will end up with 26 players on it. We'll likely leave senior spots 19 and 20 open for low cap purposes and non senior spots 29 and 30 open for allocation, but thats it.

Vexed? I'm peeved!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Not a great position to be in, but on the plus side, Cahill and Dax are more than solid, Lade has potential, Braklage can fill in, and Sam - if healthy - can be very good. But yeah, we'll need more... and draft picks rarely get you a first-year contributor anyway.

Barklage and Kimura should have right back covered so Lade can return to full-time midfield duty, where he undoubtedly should be. Still, yeah you're right we're thin as hell right now but like someone else said with Dax and Cahill we have a really strong core to build around.

And here's hoping for the imminent departure of one particular DP from the midfield roster. Vete Marquez!

Exactly... There are a lot of changes going on. Wouldn't worry just yet.

Personally, I'm just hoping we can add a real outside threat or two. Sam is great and he fits, but we need 2 more winger types in my opinion especially considering his injury issues.. Lade works as one of them if we want to do that.

I'm going with flummoxed, but, as long as they play balls to Henry without ennui, we'll be fine.

We're not signing anyone who's currently playing somewhere until the January window
