    Hello again,

    Since the season is over (and the inseason thread was unstickied) it look like it's time to start this up. As usual, please try to post a link to any roster moves you find. Here's what I can think of so far:

    Dallas
    Out:
    Bobby Rhine (retired)

    Los Angeles
    Out:
    Greg Vanney (retired)

    Seattle
    In:
    Freddie Ljungberg (unattached - prev. West Ham United)

    Diego Gutierrez and Kerry Zavagnin are also retiring at the end of the season.

    I think we should also list all signings for Seattle to date - that would mean Sebastien Le Toux, Kasey Keller, and Sanna Nyassi.

    I'll add the retirements. The Seattle signings were already accounted for in the in-season thread.

    TFC's Freeman to IK Start

    Or was that on the in-season...it shouldn't be, given it didn't happen yet (I kind of feel like that about the Seattle ones too) but this is your great list so I'll defer to your judgement on this one...

    I see your point, but I also think the Seattle signings should go here. As the off-season progresses, we'll all want to know about Seattle...and having all their players listed here would be useful and easy...

    just my 2 cents...

    Yes, Seattle's moves should be listed here as well.

    I third it- mostly we're interested in who will be new to teams when the 2009 season kicks off, and that applies to all SSFC signings.

    Has anyone mentioned how nice it is to have you back in this offseason capacity? :)

    Maybe some one can post the Seattle moves in a easy-to-copy&paste format for Phantom.

    From the inseason thread, I've added Ljungberg

    Seattle
    In:
    Kasey Keller (Fulham - England)
    Sebastien Le Toux (Seattle - USL1)
    Sanna Nyassi (Ports Authority FC - Gambia)
    Freddie Ljungberg (West Ham United - England(?))

    I'm not sure if you count West Ham for Ljungberg or not, since I believe he was a free agent.

    The player's last team should be listed.

    Since so many people want them listed, I'll put them in and make some sort of note about when they really happened.

    With the roster being cut down to 24 players per team, I expect the out list to be massive.
