Even during post season I hope the thread remains stickied. There is so much stuffs that are expected to happen during off-season.

It's all done but the math. The fat lady is singing scales backstage.

That being said, the Impact have treated Montrealers to a great inaugural MLS season, doing far better than anyone "in the know" figured they would.

A first-year head coach is handed a bunch of strangers in February and gets this kind of result. If things had unfolded differently for a total of about 60 minutes in the first half of the season, they're in the post-season.

Kudos to everyone involved, from Joey Saputo to the the kids in the concession stands.

The unfortunate part is that the players that carry our team are old. Next year, its basically Win or Bust, cause after that, MDV & Nesta are gone, Same for Ferrari if he doesn't renew his contract & Bernier isn't getting any younger. Yes we do have Zarek, Jeb & Wenger, great nucleus of young talent, but we still need those "Impact" players to come once Nesta/MdV & Others [If Any] leave. Thats why I believe this off-season will be crucial recruiting wise

Not only do we have Valentin, Brovsky and Wenger, but we also have Warner who is only 24 and Felipe, 21, who could be a real stud down the road for us. Guys like Ouimette, Mallace, James and maybe Arguez aren't bad either. Bush is what? 25? And he looks to me as a legit number 1 down the road. And who knows how many good players the Academy will produce. I think we are in great shape for now and for the future, especially since guys like MDV and Nesta will have given us a lot of credibilty moving forward. Even guys like Ferrari, Rivas and Bernier give us credibility. The Soccer planet now knows that the Impact is a serious player and the future bodes well because of that.

Yep, Nyassi is getting better and better almost every game he plays, especially his passing game.

Laurent, you're exagerating.. 1st of all, if we managed to get Di Vaio and Nesta in our inaugural season, what makes you think that we won't get even better players in 2, 3 years? We have Italian connections, a Euro feel city and a lot of money. I'm just sad we didn't get a 2nd DP during the 2nd transfer window. A left winger would of been perfect.

Its more the circumstances under which we got them that worries me. The Management just wanted Di Vaio. When they went to meet him in Italy, MdV sent Ferrari to speak to Saputo & NDS. From there he got his tryout. Then once the Di Vaio signing was complete, Nesta jumped aboard, wanting to play his last years with his best friend. Thats pretty impressive when you think about it, What if the management didn't go meet MdV?

I agree with the second part though, our wings are so poor (Davy/Justin), barely threatening. Wells Thompson is a CAM/CM that plays on the Wings aswell, and just asked for a trade out of Colorado. Could be an option to try out for the remainder of a season in a 1 on 1 swap with Justin Mapp.

Also agree with the DP Part, I'd love to get a young/prime aged player that can help the team now and for years to come

I totally forgot about him. I do agree with you, he is a nice piece of our future. He won't be a star, but he is a keeper.

I thought he was injured the whole time since he wasn't even a sub. Interesting. Hope we don't drive him away from the club.
