    I think you can make strong arguments that the last three geriatric signings (Zlatan, Rooney, Bastian) were not made for sporting reasons. The league as a whole is trending away for those types of signings. The fact that someone like Zlatan was willing to come over as a TAM player is quite remarkable.

    I never said my tweet was prime level. I don't know why anyone would read my tweets frankly.

    And it was a funny response. Just weird that a professional athlete would respond. Third time.

    Yeah we've got to pick a narrative here. Either Ibra's getting paid what they say he's getting paid, in which case he's the best sporting-reasons deal in league history, or else, well, the thing that actually happened happened.

    Its well known he is getting sponsorship money on the side, but does LAG make a move for him if they weren't now competing with LAFC for the limelight after they spent all the allocation money they did to bring over Ola Kamara and considering much they need to upgrade their backline.

    I guess that comes down to personal preference, you know? Some MLS GMs might want to spend that $1.5m on the best pure striker of the last twenty years and others might want Bořek Dočkal .

    Does this mean we can trade/dump McNamara since we now have another guy from New York on the roster. This one is actually from Queens.

    ooh, that's a good point... this guy can be our new "cult hero ny guy"! Assuming he's better than U3, of course.

    Does this guy know how to pronounce all the neighborhood and town names? That seems to be Tommy's main contribution specifically as a local.

    Saw him yesterday at the open training. Was wondering when they'd announce him since he was already wearing a regular squad number. Let's see what he can do.

    More talent at the top for MLS standards...but I meant the names that have been thrown around throughout the years have subsided. We aren't getting big names and we don't want old talent. There's quality depth which will make for better game play. That's not a dig, that's a compliment to the league for trying to build right. Though there is some trash play still, there's some good talent sprinkled about.

    He was coming off a major injury at an old age. Its work out well for LAG but don't downplay how risky it was.

    There is literally not a club in the world that would have considered it risky under those conditions to sign Ibra for a $1.5m salary and zero transfer fee. Which is why the official story is bullshit.
