    That would be a failure for US players. Promising CB bought by Chelsea for $5-6 million. Two loans. Then back to America? I mean Canada.

    I have a feeling his "I tweet for no reason" is actually literal, not an eye-wink.

    Terms not announced, but MLS site says for a goalkeeper leaving MLS, it's the largest ever transfer fee. According to my research, previous record was Tim Howard to Man United for $4.788 million.

    Technically correct. Add in inflation and id be surprised if the undisclosed fee is more than Howard’s if leveled out. In the years since Howard was transferred, EPL purses have ballooned 10x or more with what teams pay - even mediocre guys get crazy transfers.

    You have to wonder if Atlanta also got a handshake deal not to draft any of its players.

    I want to collect all the tweets predicting the Steffen ends up at NYCFC, come back to them in a year, and symbolically flick all the authors in their foreheads.

    i like this one
    yeah taking him out of MLS and then loaning him back is a bad move, uh, cause it will stunt his development, so, uh, um, leave him in MLS? what? damned if you do damned if you don't.

    Those are such lazy takes, I can't help but roll my eyes to damn near detachment every time I see one of those.

    Well, he’s also not really any better than Johnson to me.

    I may be the only one, but not afraid to say I rate Horvath as a far better keeper.

    Indeed. I wonder if one of the reasons for Steffan to head to Europe is that Horvath is pulling ahead in the race to be the next USMNT keeper.

    seem like mostly fan takes. and i think its people who dont really follow MLS. We have SJ multi year contract. I dont think Steffen is really much better, hes younger can still develop but it wont happen loaning him back to MLS.

    FC Cincinnati definitely being more proactive building a squad compared to when Minnesota United joined MLS.

    interesting i actually said they were like Minnesota based on the expansion draft but seems like today made it seem like not so. No where near ATL or even LAFC but better than Minnesota ( and maybe even us ( minus villa) in 2015)
