There is some twitter chatter that RBNY have been shopping Felipe.

CM is where we have depth.

Parker for TAM/GAM, depending on the amount, is a no brainer.

Im not sure how I feel if we lose Felipe, feel like he wasn't as good last year as he was teamed up next to Dax. Feel like i forgot he existed alot.

Parker for Garber Bucks would be a great deal.  For Felipe, I really do not know without having seen Rzatkowski play.

Rza, Adams, Davis, Casseres, Valot, and Bezecourt make this worth listening to.

Would rather keep Felipe, get rid of the GAM or TAM we aren't going to use anyway.

Interested to see if this goes through and how.

yeah, wouldn't mind keeping Felipe either and doing it the TAM/GAM route for getting Parker.

Felipe, Rzat and Royer are all 27. He ain't old.

Only thing I am curious about is what price Vancouver is looking for because the only comp we have have similar prolfile is Walker Zimmerman for $250k TAM, 250k GAM and top allocation spot (which Dallas sold for $400k TAM to jump up from #6).  That would put his value at ~$650k TAM and 250k GAM.  Parker may be worth a bit less than that but should be close to that price.
 

That being said, I get the deal done at those levels.  Allows us to take our time making sure Redding is ready when he begins to play more and we add arguably our best CB who is at a good age, who doesn't take an international spot as well.  If when Escobar goes to World Cup Collin was also injured we would have to play Long and Redding with Ndam as the first backup?  To quote Randy Jackson "that's a no from me".  Get this done ASAP, and especially do not let the smurfs get this done

Parker for allocation money is a no brainer, even if you have to give him a big raise. I wonder what kind of salary he wants, considering that he's only on $100k at the moment.

Worth listening to, but Rapinoe is a loan, Adams is probably gone in the near-ish term, and the rest are bound to be slightly above average MLs players at best? Casseres can maybe go higher.

Im not a huge Felipe fan, but I dont see anybody who will be better and here for the long term in the pipeline behind him. If hes not keeping someone who might be better on the bench, playing youth probably isnt the right move. Also the dudes 27 and probably just now hitting his prime.
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.

If they pull this off for just allocation money it will be the best trade they've made since I started following the team. Long & Parker easily has the potential to be an elite pairing for years.

 

If Felipe is going the other way, I think we'll survive this year but will need to start planning for that position in 2019 immediately. Everyone's expecting Adams to be gone, Rzatkowski's loan did not come with a team option to buy, its not Davis's strongest position, and everyone else on the roster (Casseres, Valot, Bezecourt) are totally unproven in MLS. Not to mention that no matter your feelings on Felipe's antics, he's clearly a leader on this team.
