Romero's spot is not in danger. It's Pisanu's. I'm not expecting Mapp to play every game anyway, we have a good depth at every position (except LB), Arnaud is also coming back soon, which will result in a real dilemma if we decide to continue playing 4-4-2. Who would you sit? Arnaud or Felipe?

Well, Arnaud can still be very useful for his work rate, Felipe should definitely be first choice though. This depth is key if we are going to take CONCACAF CL seriously. It might be better to save Arnaud for the more physical MLS competition

Yes, Even if all our players our healthy once our schedule starts getting compacted again we all know injuries will come into play. So i wouldnt worry to much who we are going to play or Arnaud/Map/Felipe/Pisanu and who is going to sit the bench. Injuries and fatigue will come into play and we need this depth to compete if we want to go far in MLS playoffs and CONCACAF.

Definitely. Plus we cant have this attitude about Arnaud as we did last year. He has really been in form for us before the injury.

Right now, Arnaud because the team is playing so well. Everyone will have to out-play their teammates to gain a spot. I noticed that Romero isn't really effective on a short week/2 games within a week, so the staff probably should look at that in order to give Pisanu a chance to play himself back in the starting XI.

Pisanu is great on the ball. Technically above average, best crosser in this team imo.

Home & Away games are different. I think that when we play at home, we can afford to put more of our "less" physical players in our Starting 11 cause (normally) we should be dictating the pace and setting the tone. On the other side, when we play on the road and need to grind out results, thats when I can see the "Heavy Workers"/Grinders come in to use. Especially as the season goes on, legs will get tired, and if we want a run in the playoffs + do well in the CCL, gotta keep everyone fresh.

There is no such comprehensive list unfortunately. Most contracts are signed privately and don't leak.

Historically most are 2+1 or 3+1, But we have way more loans and 1 yr deals than usual.

Di Vaio ends this fall, but he has another option year if we wants it.

Nesta should be gone.

Paponi, Romero, Pisanu and Rodriguez are all loans that'll end.

apart from that we don't really know. its something to tweet at the journalists, i'm sure someone will do some research at some point.

It's quite important, mainly since the important CONCACAF games will happen next spring with a potentially very different lineup.

Btw guys, if we were to acquire depth in the midfield, I know some may not like the idea, but De Guzman is available and free. He wouldn't be a starter but last year he had a good 2nd half with Dallas, so he would provide a good depth at holding midfield position. He'd certainly be an upgrade over Warner.

Free as in waivers I guess, because I believe he has a hefty contract.

While it's still a good deal, its not a excellent as it first looks because they base it off of Ticketmaster prices.

Assuming you buy directly from the Stadium, it looks more like:

47$ pour un billet dans la section BLEU MARIN (valeur de 72$)
35$ pour un billet dans la section BLEU ROYAL (valeur de 52$)
28$ pour un billet dans la section VERT (valeur de 39$)
19$ pour un billet dans la section GRIS (valeur de 26$)


Still pretty good.

Just bought tickets but didn't use the Twango offer because you can't by tickets in 132 with this promotion.

I hope they win this week-end. It could help sell a little more tickets for wednesday's game.

If we lose Nesta and DiVaio is hope we bring in 2 DP's to replace them.
