All signs seem to indicate we could hear about a new DP signing today.

The draft is always a bit chaotic but once we got through the painfully long first round, it was actually not all that bad.
I was told over the weekend that we should hear about this deal on Tuesday. It sounds like we did indeed get Cristian Colman.

That is a lot of allocation money for Dax McCarty, who just got married too by the way. Kind of crazy to think that he gets called up to the national team, gets married and then finds out he is going to Chicago.
Lets just say that the New York fans are a little upset. I think we know how they feel since we too have lost McCarty in a surprise way in the past.
Here is a little take on the big deal from the Chicago side of things.
If we thought Atlanta made a big splash coming in as an expansion club, I think LAFC will use that model and then some on their way in next year.
A couple teams made a lot of risky deals on draft day last week.
Montreal’s owner continues to say that Piatti isn’t going anywhere but I would imagine once one club makes a big enough offer they will jump at it.
In the past it was about getting more players, cheaper players to fill a roster out before preseason camps. Now days, it is merely about getting some assets for you and for your USL side.
It is kind of crazy to think that a NFL team is sharing a soccer stadium with a MLS side. Not the other way around.
