    We'll see. MLS does punish teams for having players that are good enough to represent their national team. Not something SKC have to worry about. Maybe that is PVs roster building strategy?

    Currently Miami are not playing Campana much. He can rotate in for Suarez during the summer. Messi doesn't wear down because he walks more than anyone. They will need to rotate the squad more than they currently do, but I'm not convinced they will wilt in the summer heat.

    I mean, its 4D chess stuff. Get players that aren't good enough to get called into their national team so that your team is at full strength during FIFA windows, which MLS ignores. This alone merits another 5 year contract extension.

    Not going to keep the New England discussion in the Austin game thread, but New England is a disaster whether any of this is accurate or not.

    You're saying a team with Curt Onalfo involved is a disaster? Pffft. As if.

    Even their disasters are disasters. That is a mess. Owner searching for coach who is hiding, players fighting in the lockerroom but saying they aren't.
    Obviously, this wouldn't happen at SKC. Owners at the game and caring enough to seek out the manager?
    That said, Vermes would have mapped out the best hiding spots. they'd never find him

    Apparently Columbus is taking a page out of SKC's book for the CCL. Hopefully it works out better for them in the long run.

    Maybe they got their altitude gear cheap from us.
    To be fair, short term it worked pretty well. that moment in the second half, when we were getting ole-ed by their fans as we passed their team off the field was a good moment. True,.it was their worst side in a long time, but still...

    This is a good approach. Midseason, already fit, and only trying to acclimate the body to elevation. The alternative would be fly in day of, so the body does not have time to adjust.

    SKCs issue was the preseason camp at altitude and doing all of this work at the front end of a season. It's like their physios had never read a book on periodization training (they should read cycling/running for dummies). You can't hold peak fitness for long, and if you don't have solid base fitness (what preseason is for) the body will collapse late season after it was frontend loaded.

    No longer an issue now that we have moved onto Hamstring FC

    WTF! How does this kind of thing happen with other teams? They and other teams are bringing in players of this caliber while SKC seems to be shopping at the local GoodWill store for their players. I am so ready for a roster makeover, but not if they keep looking under rocks to find players.

    I mean 1) I take anything that account says with a grain of salt. 2) Miami is linked with anyone and anyone regardless of their roster standing b/c of agent talk. 3) They do have the replacement player spot for Freire's season ending injury that opens up $1m in guaranteed compensation (over a half a season as well so it's even less).
