Call your congressmen about immigration legislation because we need some green cards ASAP.
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.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Or we could always get some other unfortunate team to trade us one of their slots forever again.

given the going rate for international spots, trading for that extra one permanently is one of the greatest MLS trades of all time lol

I know it's only been a couple of scrimmages, but aside from a shift against USF, Keita hasn't played. Maybe he could be on his way out?

 

And I'm sure I've said this before, but Valot and Bezecourt should have green cards, or at least be getting some soon. Collin could be getting his back, too.

 

Loaning Ndam back to the II's could get us to compliance, too. If we go back to a 2 CB formation it'd probably be for the best as he's still 19. At 6'4" his size will be an asset, but it also means he probably needs more technical polish and you can't really work on that stuff getting thrown into the fire with the first team.

ATLUTD was able to get one for Villalba who's been here less than a year. How the hell do Valot and Bezecourt not have them already?

I wonder if either Valot or Bezecourt are near Green Card territory.

We couldn't get one for Roy Miller in what, 5 years?

I'm presuming it was an EB-1 extraordinary ability green card. As the name suggests, not something just any player can get.

MLS should pencil in to their ever changing rules that players who played 3+ years in an American college and graduate are exempt from INTL spots.

And if we were to try and get Pussetto or someone like that in the next transfer window, we'd have to be at 8, with a spot open. Thus Beze and Valot waived with Ndam loaned to RB2 again, but for the season.

We loaned Zeiko Lewis down in the beginning of the season, thus saving a INTL and a roster spot.

Then when we signed Bezecourt from the USL, we were able to loan Ndam down for the remainder of the year.

Can see a similar situation this year. Valot the likely candidate to be down for the season then Ndam down if we are targeting a summer signing.

Hopefully one or two of these guys end up getting green cards.

Once we left him unprotected in the expansion draft and LAFC didnt take him (despite Bradley supposedly recommending him to us and LAFC taking other international players) the writing was on the wall that maybe he wasnt panning out.
