November is nearly over here as we’re almost to the heart of the offseason.
// FC Dallas //
Right now FC Dallas has two solid goalkeepers on the books for next year, but how much are they costing the team? We dive into the numbers.
Many of you have been thinking it these last few months, and now we dive into the debate ourselves.
A few are still in it from the academy teams but none bigger than UNC’s Sarah Ashley Firstenberg, who play in the women’s College Cup semifinals this week against my alma mater WVU.
// MLS //
Let’s just say it will be cold and likely wet.
Roster moves are starting to come in at a hot pace as both NY clubs, New England and Houston all making announcements yesterday.
Yes we can? I never like to get too political here but alright.
Peter Vegenas was named the team’s GM yesterday afternoon but there is still no new news about who will replace Bruce Arena on the bench.
I really like what they’ve done in this department lately. They made a section of seats in their new stadium to have a rainbow of colors in honor of the victims of the nightclub shootings.
At this point I can hardly tell a difference in them from one to the next but good for them.
If I were to guess, I would say no. Unless a team is fine spending a large sum of money on a guy that may only play 10-15 games in a season like he did this year.
// NASL //
I think the MLS owners are smiling a bit that they didn’t end up with the mess that the Cosmos have turned into in the NASL. But again, this looks horrible for a league that is losing teams left and right.
And a little more thought on the Cosmos and NASL.
