“We’re still looking to make some big roster moves,” Marsch told reporters at Friday’s MLS Draft. “Some of it is out there. I’m not going to address it right now but at least two, maybe three or four big splashes. We’re working on that, but we also feel good about a lot of the group returning. We like our group. I feel like we’re as close as we’ve been to the kind of team that we think is necessary to play the way we want to play. That’s exciting.”

Just read that stuff so had to come here.
Wow. I was happy and ready to go to war with just the Kaku addition. Adding another big piece or two on top of that is extremely exciting.

Well, they need at least one big splash just to replace Sacha. Presumably that is Kaku, who's signing Marsch seems to be referencing. I guess another could be a CB, where as it stands now the team has some young guys with potential and one proven veteran with an alarming injury history. Maybe a third big splash would be another midfielder, to play on the wing opposite Royer (assuming Kaku plays in the center). I doubt a right back signing would be a big splash. Would they bring in a striker? If they did, would he partner with BWP or replace BWP?

I want to make a joke about "big splashes" coming from RBNYII, but damn I'm excited about the thought of multiple more Kaku level signings.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

Yeah, this seems crazy. Happy about the idea of getting 3-4 players in the $6-10m range, but geez, did we hit powerball or something? We went from top 3 in the league in spending to bottom 10 to some crazy New York Yankees Drunken Steinbrenner kinda shit. Cool, but...wow.

It's all going to happen ... in 60 to 90 days.

Kinda surprised as fairly happy with roster with KaKu
Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

For now I would take one splash.

Dyer mentioned Emerson Hyndman is talking to MLS. He'd be a significant signing. Wonder if one of the possibilities is him.

What is this team?
Posted 19 January 2018 - 11:12 PM
Big splash may not mean two Kaku's but good to know that its looks like we are back to 2014 in terms of first team investment. Honestly think as long as we spend in top 1/4 of league we should be contending for Shields every year because until shown otherwise we are among if not the best in the league at developing players.

RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

Were still looking to make some big roster moves, Marsch told reporters at Fridays MLS Draft. Some of it is out there. Im not going to address it right now but at least two, maybe three or four big splashes. Were working on that, but we also feel good about a lot of the group returning. We like our group. I feel like were as close as weve been to the kind of team that we think is necessary to play the way we want to play. Thats exciting.
Can we make one splash before we talk about 3 maybe 4... jeeze
