When you think MLS has reached peak weird with "blind draws" for marquee players, they're always able to raise the bar.

Btw, Twellman is reporting the allocation order swap Colorado did with Chicago is to acquire Ale Bedoya as a DP.

Any info on Joe Gallardo?

He's currently testing with Club Brugge (see my avatar :wink: )

Vincent's a really good player and superficially these are good moves the Fire made, but seeing as how it's the Fire making them there's got to be a catch here, like Vincent has a secret pegleg or they're going to use all the allocation money they just got to bring in some stiff.

I dooooo think it's kind of funny that CO traded actual things to try and bring in Ale Bedoya, who won't sell tickets, move the needle or score goals.

SSFC got much better at LB with Joevan Jones. He starts for T&T and makes $66k. I get that he was superfluous with drafting Vincent, but Seattle just made a clear upgrade at a massive weak area.

Nantes already shot them down and they now appear to moving towards Tim Howard.

Which tells you how incompetent the Rapids FO is. They have Clint Irwin and just traded for Zac Macmath. Both of those guys are probably better than Tim Howard is, right now, and cost a fraction of what it would take, not to mention how effing dumb it would be to waste a NT allocation spot on a fricking keeper.
