    First international player of CPL, comes from the Swedish 2nd Division.





    Milito is unproven and Sampaoli is not bad.
    They gotta go for GBS. Younger and knows the league already, Or can he make a return to Columbus but as coach this time?

    Most likely both to Vancouver because MDS.
    I feel we'll get one of Reyna or Waston in return. Yordy Reyna is listed as a forward but he's a #10. Something we never had. Kendall Waston is 30 yo, entering his prime, is probably not to far away from having his residency and a huge upgrave over Camacho.

    How about Felipe :sarcasm:

    Waston would be a very good fit. With a possible trio of Waston-Fanni-Bush, we won’t be scored against often.

    And once again, the ever elusive Kei Kamara would be perfect. One can only dream

    KK is a free agent, if both parties are interested, he'll be in MTL next year.
    A duo of Fanni - Waston like you said will be unbreakable and on par with SKC's IMO. But Doneil Henry is a good depth choice too. However, Petrasso + Creapeau + $ for Waston is much more impactful (pun intended).

    Mod request: can the poll be changed? It’s about a game that happened two months ago.

    How about Atlanta or Portland?

    There's not a goddamn chance that we're trading for Watson when we're committing about 2 mil for Fanni, Diallo and Camacho already.

    My guess is international sports.

    or Yordy Reyna. I hope they don't trade for Int spots. Cabrera, Vargas, Mancosu leaving means 3 new open slots.

    Waston is already better than all our CBs. Him coming would mean one of them on their way out. Not very likely but it's not like there's someone indispensable to the club in this position.

    I'd see Waston going to Atlanta if he stays in the league. I mean from a good fit standpoint. Waston gets to play for a contender and Atl gets a top D to replace an old cb (Lorentowicz 35, Parkhurst 34).

    I'm guessing the LA teams are interested. Especially Galaxy, they have no one at cb.

    Wasn't he the dude that trained with the team at the end of the season? I'm guessing they see him as a Piatti/Silva sub

    6 foot 26 year old, plays mainly LW, but has also played striker and RW

    Was in Lyon’s academy and reserves from 2010-2013 before going to league2, belgium, australia and asia. A bit of a globe trotter but still young.

    Had a season high 13 goals scored 2 years ago with Melbourne, and 12 last year in the UAE first league

    Not expecting much tbh. Possibly an small upgrade over Mancosu, late sub for Piatti/Silva

    He's taking the spot of Vargas or Cabrera, how is that bad?

    Our usage of INT spots is bad.

    That's the guy who trained with the team near the end of the season. Garde said his attitude problems were the reason he never succeeded with Lyon, but that he's matured since. Don't know the player, but Garde did say he was immensely skilled.

    That said, why an intl. spot for a depth guy?

    Our wing depth is thin though, we only have Silva and Piatti if Choinière and Vargas are out

    There are probably dozens of Canadian/American players we can sign for depth.

    He looks really creative with the ball



    Of course, these are highlights. But if he can put his **** together, we might have a replacement for Nacho. I don't think he'll ever replace the full production from Piatti, but at least we could have a proper LW when he leaves.

    I'm not sure I'm in love with the idea of around 2M spent on 35+ year olds. Then Camacho at 700k.

    Doesn't seem like balanced spending.

    They were super effective. I'm all for it. Their play didn't appear ike 35+ year olds. Only part that made them look like 35+ year olds was their experience showed.
