Boy, Monday didn’t hold back in terms of news.

We’re going to hammer hard into this news in the coming days as we finally know who is staying and who is going. There is still time for renegotiation here with those no re-signed yesterday but for now we have plenty of open roster slots.
While FCD has been busy in the offseason, their affiliate up in Oklahoma has already made several moves of their own this offseason as well.
Yesterday’s moves didn’t provide a ton of shock in my mind, but you could ponder why Mauro Rosales was left on the chopping block. My guess is it comes down to age.

I was pretty ticked to see that Carlos Gruezo didn’t even place in this award. I voted for him but apparently not many did the same.
Limit his time on the ball and what he can do in space.
Apparently the Big O had some roof concerns but no amount of snow is going to cause any sort of delay in tonight’s game.
Montreal and Toronto are ready to show what a big rivalry game looks like in the playoffs.
He would be an interesting guy to have here in Frisco, though I don’t see that happening at all.
This is the question I wanted answered yesterday. Plenty of good options out there to take the job once he leaves for the USMNT. My gut right now tells me that it will be a surprise either way.

While FCD was dropping their roster news, the US Soccer Federation was giving Jurgen Klinsmann a pink slip.
While he may not be a sexy choice, one thing we do know is that Arena will provide some stability to the team over the next two years.
Again, for me it is stability and consistency.
There were a few highs during the time but plenty of head scratching lows.
