    Apparently, Wolff did his knee last night. They're waiting on the test results.

    Riddle me this - is there anyone on United's roster you wouldn't give up for Wolff? Perhaps Pope, but even that is negotiable in my opinion.

    If Wolff was on the market I would have given the Fire any one on the DC roster they wanted for him.

    The bigger question is did our inept front office even no Wolff was on the market and make an offer to the Fire for him? If you're gonna be in the game, be IN the game.

    And for the record, what the hell was Nick S. thinking by not trading Faria to the Fire for Wolffy?

    He was waiting to see whether sticking the pin in the knee of his Josh Wolff voodoo doll would work....

    Even if Wolff is hurt right now. That was a poor decision by Nicky. I know Wolff was not hurt at that point but think about the nightmare. Mathis and Wolff in the Swamps........................just shoot me now.

    First, the article says "deal involving Faria" which leads me to believe that, if what's reported is true, it could've been Faria, a scrub, and a draft pick. I'm not particularly inclined to believe anything that Nick S. says (the "I'm not calling anyone" comment cracked me up).

    Second, offense is not their problem right now.

    Third, Wolff just signed a longterm contract for the league max, and there's no way they'd be able to get Costacurta then.

    As for us, I'd love to have Wolff here, provided he can stay healthy, which might be easier without Kovalenko hacking him down in practice every day.

    DCU should make that deal, just so the Metros couldn't.

    I bet Chicago wouldn't take Moreno even up for Wolff. Forget how Moreno has played this year.

    1. Age--give up a younger player for an older player? I don't think Bradley would get excited about that.

    2. The deal (I think) is partially to clear cap room for Chicago (so they could add other players). So even if they'd do Wolff for Moreno, what they'd really want would be Wolff for Convey and Quaranta (2 players who's combined salary is less than that of Wolff's). Chicago has been hit by injuries and can't do anything about it without clearing up cap space. They aren't going to cut Stoichkov or Nowak. Wolff is a maximum salary guy. They need to move a max salary guy.

    For what it's worth, I like Wolff but he has yet to have a season in MLS where (a) he's been his team's leading scorer and (b) he's played 2/3rds of his team's games. He has a worse history of injuries than does Moreno.
