We now have four picks. Hopefully they will be as good as Wenger and Mallace.

Great trade lol. Maybe Arnaud could fetch something then.

I hope we can use these picks wisely, I don't believe we need 4 players from the draft.

It would make us look bad if we discarded him. Just keep him as a sub this season. Remember he was fairly important the first half of last season before we had a solid Felipe, Bernier, Di Vaio etc

Why would it make us look bad? It is a business. The guy costs too much for what he brings to the team. I love his hustle and heart, but getting rid of Arnaud frees up a lot of cap space and gives us room for improvement. Sure, he would help us tremendously as a sub, but for 250k, it is overpayment.

Can't we just restructure his contract?

It'll be hard since we had pretty good picks last year.

From what I'm hearing the SuperDraft is not the best recruitment option there is.

I think they'll trade those picks for more international spots!

I think our picks should be used to add cheap depth...

Mapp apparently will be back next season. He opted out of Re-entry draft and is negotiating a new contract with IMFC.

As a sub if don't cost to much he could e useful.

It should be a substantial salary cut to be worth it to keep him. Something like a 50% cut.

This. I don't like Mapp at 200k+, but I wouldn't mind him at around 100k. He doesn't have stamina, but he can create things. Use him correctly and he can help the team. Sure, I'd like us to have better option, but Mapp at a lesser contract isn't necessarly a bad thing.

I want Arnaud gone because he makes too much, if he can restructure and come off the bench/start occasionally for around 100k, I'd welcome him back also.

The problem with these two is that we are paying them - and playing them - too much for what they can really bring to the team. With reduced salary and a lesser role, I would keep them. Having experience players as part of your depth AND in your locker room is a great thing, especially for a team as new as ours. Sure, we have guys like Nesta, Bernier and Di Vaio, but they don't know the league as Arnaud and Mapp do. Cut their salaries and their role and nobody will complain about them, we'll even like them. A good coach that knows how to utilize such players would make them very useful... in small doses.

I think Mapp is coming back... either re-signed or traded before the draft.

UPDATE: Impact midfielder Justin Mapp has been removed from the list of available players ahead of Friday's Re-entry draft.


edit: oh wow I didn't even see Captain Saku's post from last night
