The big holiday is almost upon us here as we await things like the 2016 schedule and more roster moves.
// FC Dallas //
We're zeroing in on our top goal from 2015 with your help. Half of the semifinals were released yesterday with more on the way today. Get to voting!
// MLS //
The MLS folks went a little east coast biased with these games but they were good ones. I would have thrown a couple playoff games in the mix as the top games of the season. One with FCD comes to mind against Seattle. That SKC-Portland game was nuts as well.
The old forward continues to talk about coming to MLS. I'll say pass if FCD's name gets mentioned again for his services.
Howler takes a look at NYCFC and their fans.
Yeah, when a player comes out and tweets that the offer was too low, I would imagine he won't be back. I believe his time in MLS is over but that may just be me.
Something tells me that Atlanta will do some serious roster building in 2016 where they sign guys and immediately loan them out. A bold strategy that may work in some places.
So Toronto had to give up a conditional fourth round draft pick for a average starter. I know it may be apples and oranges but this shows me a lot about how keepers are valued in this league when I look at this deal and what FCD got for Dan Kennedy.
The last couple of winters have been all about how Toronto has brought in some big name DPs into the league. Now they're making smart moves within the league to better their roster.
