Way too early for this!

All of this seems about right, except Meara probably doesn't retire. It's a nice gig if you can get it.

Not sure if we get any takers for Klimala, maybe Schneider rolls the dice on him one last time in his contract year to see if he catches fire.

OMG, is it too early to worry about who we will protect in the St. Louis expansion draft?

yes its too early but a slow week and look people are responding !!!

;-)

 

also - Schnieder mentioned vet leadership like Pavel Pardo at Stuttgart.

Which veteran CB does he bring in from Germany or Austria?

don't say John Brooks as he is not known for doing well with high line/pressing.

sorry I have not suggestions.

Does Lacava make the team? 

I think Yes takes the 3rd striker Barlow role

Do we get to see Omar Sowe back from the land of fire and ice?

I hope at least one of these guys pan out and can contribute more than Barlow.

Reminds me of an old Futurama gag where Bender becomes a sports agent

 

Bender *on phone*: Hey, you put a one and two zeroes in front of that or we walk! ...Deal!

Leela: How much did we get?

Bender: One hundred dollars

CCJ not now but maybe in the winter

rejected numerious bids for $2.5M + sell on

Maybe  $4-5M+ sell on is the expectation?  

 

Any comparables people can think of?

Gruezero Dallas 2019 to Augsberg for $4.4M

Is Tyler a fair comparison given who he was sold to? If he went for $3M plus sell-on, then $2.5M plus sell-on for CCJ is an absolute steal

The Tyler thing was an anomaly. There is zero chance they sell him for anything below $8M (and that's conservative) to a team that isn't Leipzig or Salzburg.

Unless there are some real additions, you gotta think Struber is out, right?

He has a contract until 2023. I dont see why rbny would let him go. They are lucky to have him. If anything, they should try to extend his contract
