    Isn't Gonzalez out of contract in June?

    Contract does end in June. He was in LA the other day training with the Galaxy.

    Atlas un-benched him for the final two Clausura games, so he'll probably make the Gold Cup roster.

    Truth is, the Zorritos looked better when he didn't play.

    So basically, Gonzalez's move back to MLS was blocked because Pachuca wanted a transfer fee for the last 2 months of his contract. Especially notable because Atlas's last match of the season was on May 5, and the news that Gonzalez would not be transferred occurred on May 6.

    LOL, that's devious.

    what's his legacy in Liga MX? He won a title so there's that but did he show he was a talented defender?

    Pachuca is the kind of club that has to be extremely intelligent with its money in order to hang in there. Hidalgo is one of the poorest states in the country so they only really make bank on ticket sales when we face really popular teams in playoffs. That’s also why our shirts are plagued with sponsorships. I actually wish omar hadn’t dropped in form so badly. The guys we’ve gotten to replace him have all been awful. Robert Herrera was basically a smaller Omar in bad form. And Stiven Barreiro (the guy we have now) is one of the worst defenders I’ve ever seen in this club.

    The inept New England Revolution have signed Bruce Arena as their GM & Head Coach.

    If this had happened 10 days earlier, then maybe MLS would have gotten into the bidding war for Omar Gonzalez that Pachuca needed.

    Omar is only able to come back to MLS through the Allocation Order. He will probably join Toronto on a free transfer

    It's scary to think Gonzo is likely to be part of the squad for this cycle. And it has nothing to do with that own-goal, he's just not good enough at this point.

    Toronto is like the dumping ground for the NT guys we wish we could replace for good already.
