    At least they didn't sign Ethan Finley and his wonderful crosses to replace him.

    But even if he made 100,001 it would not have mattered since he wasn't injured prior to the close of the Primary Transfer Window and we had no replacement signed then either.

    That may be true. But very poor foresight by the front office to sign him at that number. I get it, he wears 99 and those numbers have meaning. Then sign him to $100,000.99 if you know the rules! If he had been injured before the Primary Transfer Window, that cute little salary number could have really screwed us over $.04. There is no excuse for that.

    Sort of doubt this is real. But it's all we got.

    I think it'll certainly be worth keeping an eye on the European leagues this fall. There are bound to be players falling out of favor with new coaches like in Maxi's case. I'm interested in seeing if we go with a $6mil or a $2mil guy. Not that they're likely to be much different, but $6mil will probably buy you a well-known player, and CFG seems to feel that's important for us, as well.

    So your source versus a quote to media from the club president...even if I ascribed all of our past media bullshit to Patricof, I still know which I'd bet on.

    Also, what does a "Maxi" mean? Somewhere between Mix and Lampard? Well, that's broad and there are a lot of stars in the area. So we aren't going to sign any more Fat Maestros. Who gives a fuck. Vela is a star. Gio is a star. Giovinco is a star.

    Maybe we don't agree on what a star is. You can not sign overpaid washed up assholes and still sign stars.

    Even if we just sign fringe players from fairly big teams I'd consider that big. That's all Giovinco was and he seems to have turned out pretty okay for Toronto.

    Despite your typical prick response, you explained very well their thought process.

    No more Villas. No more $6 million men. But also no $8 Million transfer fee Almirons. The J Dos Santos and Vela signings are the type of players you should expect

    I'll be curious to see if Atlanta continues with the multimillion transfer fees on their next round of DPs. They haven't started any trends yet.

    They'll sell Almiron for $20 million

    I thought about that when I wrote the previous post. I agree, it seems the system can pay for itself if you can afford the initial outlay. Which makes one wonder why other deep pockets seem unwilling to try. Is it just the risk of picking wrong and not getting the return?
