    Haha - Does anyone have video of that disastrous first game? I want to watch it and come up with some sort of a drinking game.

    That's some lowball b.s.

    10 million plus add-ons including a percentage of the next sale.

    Minimum.

    European clubs seem to equate scouting for transfers in MLS to shopping at Dollar General. I'd like to think the league has at least risen to the level of Target by now.

    Celtic has been low balling MLS for years now....and unsurprisingly their low ball offers have never been accepted.

    Maybe they should be scouting USL now, "Dollar General" offers may be more enticing to USL teams.....

    Didn't you see all the hype this year? Why would they want to go and sign another DP and take away a spot from a homegrown?

    Three strikers signed for next year but who do you protect for the expansion draft?

    That's easy, make a preemptive trade with Austin. Give them some garberbucks for a handshake deal to not take any of our players in the Expansion Draft.

    Plus, a big chunk of the roster is homegrown players anyways, and is already protected.

    Possibly but only sixteen teams participate in this draft. The Union have 16 eligible players and they can protect 12. Collin, Bendik & Oravec are the obviously ones but after that it looks like it will be from a list of Ilsinho, Bedoya & Gaddis it you want to protect all three strikers.

    A central defender wouldn’t have been #1 on my player acquisition list this offseason, but the additional depth will be helpful. Watching other teams sign big money attacking players while the Union stand still is getting frustrating. I do trust Ernst, but not Sugarman’s budget priorities.

    ...and then the article went on to state we are the MLS Cup holders.

    Heya mods, any chance we could un-pin this thread and move this conversation over to the 20-21 off-season thread?

    He was the best player last season on a bad team. I wasn't sure why he's not been playing this year, but probably has something to do with this:

    Philadelphia Union are finalizing the signing of US youth international central midfielder Leon Flach from FC St. Pauli for $250,000, a source confirms. Bild first reported. Flach, 20, is a dual-national and also represented Germany at the youth levels.

    On a different note it looks like we have one more International player than we currently have international spots. Anybody that should be getting a green card? I think International roster spots are getting a lot more expensive to buy from other teams now. I think I saw that Atlanta played $225k in Garber buck for one recently.
