    Wow, I'm shocked that this didn't drag until August as every other Bradley move has dragged until the last day of the transfer window.

    Good luck to him.

    This is pretty good for a fourth round draft pick. (Granted, that would be a second round pick today.)

    Apparently Juan has left the club so the #4 shirt is open. Hope he snags it.

    I'm very excited about this move. I'll be visiting home in late July and will definately hit up the Jersey match.

    Any idea on how much cash Bradley will be pulling in? When will they start marketing him as the "America's footballing great" to sell those jerseys?

    stonejh127 I just realized there's a new thread so i'll answer over here.

    Ogbonna was always going to be difficult especially now because Milan just got a ton of cash, so all our Italian targets will change because it's unlikely we'll outbid Milan for any player. So actually I'd expect more signing on the "Bradley level" until the last couple weeks of the window. Just a hunch but I think that last week will be rather busy

    Also don't forget we have Castan arriving and I think he'll turn out to be a great addition. He had an excellent Copa Libertadores campaign with Corinthians.

    I personally want us to get back in involved with the two Villarreal defenders, they seem ripe for the picking. Villarreal's defense is not why they got relegated and they have some good players who could be for sale, Mateo Musacchio in particular.

    Do you think he'll see time with their first preseason game in Chicago?

    I think the odds of him not playing in his adopted hometown are very slim.

    Yeah probably.....

    I think the Liverpool match Zeman might take slightly seriously but he's not one for caring about the result an awful lot in friendlies. Jonathan Lucca an 18 year just showed up last week and he played yesterday.

    (he might have been training with us for longer I can't remember)

    When the Serie A fixture list gets posted, we need to mark our calenders for the big matches (such as Juventus, AC/Inter Milan, etc.). Though the one I'm REALLY looking forward to is Bradley's first Derby delle Capitale. Will be interesting to see how he handles the intensity of the matches vs. Lazio.

    Also, if anyone has a link to order a Bradley Roma jersey, post it in this thread...and do we have to order a size up since Kappa usually makes their jerseys skin tight?

    It turns out that the guy with the video game site was right all a long. He's a transfer guru.

    Congratulations to Michael. I expect him to be Zeman's "crash the box" midfielder this year. The entire coaching staff seems to be high on him, so it should be a good setup for him.
