A goalkeeper, why? We have two at the Academy that could be our third. Maybe we will move Bush...

Funny to listen to the broadcast crew working at the Draft.

They are really puzzled by the Impact's picks. They are looking forward to ask few questions to the management after the Draft is over.

NDS already said we're hnlikely to sign a 2nd DP to start the season. They might however sign one during summer transfers depending on club position and needs.

Not sure a trade with TFC is doable. I was hoping to draft a canadian player so he could handle some value in a trade with TFC or Vancouver.

Shows they've done their work. Really intrigued about DelPiccolo, the fact that hes getting a tryout in the Bundesliga makes me excited

I do wanna know why he's not there at the draft.
IMO all draft are crap shot. MLS proved by doing the SupahDraft today at noon that they don't have a clue!!! Wich market are they targeting Europe or North America. I'm sorry but at noon I'm either lunching or working and I can't watch the SupahDraft live. I mean what is the point of doing it at noon they got 50% off on food in a Hotel in Indianapolis? MLS is suppose to be a MAJOR LEAGUE they should make things at PRIMETIME.


I ask you guys on the board : Did you read any feature on players available at the draft? There is so few info it seems nobody cares about the MLS.

I was kinda hoping for Lopez or Zavaleta.


Me too both of them are G.A. I think they don't count on the team cap and don't have to be protect in expansion drafts. Hope the Impact scouts this Blake Smith a lot.

He's one the best player in the draft. A player who has a try out in Europe in MLS SupahDraft is like the Russian Factor in the NHL draft.

From a quick video, seems like Blake is an athletic dude. Normally the ones that are able to do backflips (As he did after scoring a goal) are athletic specimens. Also DeSantis said he had most decisive passes in the NCAA, so great option creating from down the wings.

Personally was hoping for Bekker or Zavaletta

Not just with DelPicollo, most of the picks were "unexpected"

ya I saw that video and thought the same thing. He seems to be exactly what we were missing on that left wing. Shifty guy that can put the ball in as well

It might be a good thing after all.The Impact's way is outside the MLS box. I'm intrigue about Blake Smith. He's a left midfield if he can cross better than Mapp and Neagle (should not be very tough) we have a good asset in our attack. I like Mapp he's exciting to watch but is he the best option at left wing for Di Vaio?

Mapp would be good if he were able to stay on the field past the 60 minute mark. His fitness is terrible.

I'm not sure if it was fitness or injury? But anyway you are right he sucked bad after the 60th minute of play. Hopefully Marco Schallibaum will change him for a player who can actually shut down the other team when we have the lead unlike Marsh.

Hearing that a few players on the Impact have asked for a transfer. Could be some movement in next week or two #imfc

Personally I liked what I saw from Bennett at the combine Ok I agree it was a short time period but he was good. He makes me think of Olivier Occéan.

Now that the draft is completed I'm not expecting much activity until training camp.

Funny how so called experts here were so off the charts with their picks! As I had predicted, European style of play is really not in sync with mls developement .
