    It's for increased salary. He's wanted an increased salary for over a year. As you know Precourt has already invested so many millions into this club. We have THREE (of the lowest paid) DP's in the league. Virtually every trade we have made has brought back TAM or GAM over the years. The money spent on the (in-house) rebrand. The new scoreboard.

    Oh, and the lobbyists.....

    You can't really expect him to pay Kamara too, can you?

    Or... its mls. You can trade players against their wills to teams they aren't interested in. Getting traded doesn't meam you get a new contract.

    Obviously we misunderstood Ola when he said he wanted to go to a "higher league". Clearly he meant "higher elevation in the league". He believes the low O2 levels will boast his game.

    Hope this works for both player and team. He looked good before his injury.

    ...and this must mean that we have cleared at least one international spot, somehow.

    Seems like we're stuck with Mensah for 2018. If we could have gotten out from under his contract I'd hope we'd have already done it.

    Once you've been traded to the highest bidder, sure.

    Erickson said Sauros had his green card before this past season.....so not an issue.

    I definitely feel like well be seeing a lot of 3 in the back this season....with Mensah, Sauro, Williams, Abubakar, and Crognale.

    You think we sign two left backs or just one?

    Glad Sauro is back.

    Bet our uncertain future will hurt player recruitment.

    Losing Meram or Ola would suck. However, neither is elite.

    How many people think Fratass Tony is going to shell out money for players. Ola and Meram are elite enough to be very difficult to replace. Horse Thief Tony hates Columbus so why would he invest?

    Hansen at outside mid and either Sosa or Martinez would be in cdm slot despite not being a cdm.

    1 left back - i agree
    2 forward - i agree
    3 unless Meram leaves i disagree
    4 we could certainly use a rb upgrade unless we think Maloney can start some games
    5 we do need a 4th cdm type of we’re going to play 4231 but maybe Sosa can play their even tho he is more of attacker. If he can’t i agree with you
