    So I’m guessing we’re not doing anything else till the summer now. What are the chances we actually make any moves?
    I think we need to put some of our wingers on the market.

    I think we are all watching to see if they sell Medina to upgrade that DP spot this summer.

    Not a chance a player of his caliber comes to MLS. Better money elsewhere. Also as long as he plays in one of the top 4 he’s basically guaranteed a WC roster spot.

    I think James will play for Beckham United. Not now but before he’s 30

    Next year I believe. He'll be 34. He's having a good year though, so not sure they'll move him before then.

    Thoughts on Bobby Wood? Salary level means he must be a DP. Assuming that's a no then.

    Always liked Bobby Wood, and he’s a massive upgrade over Medina.

    Sooooo... I've been following him since the Union Berlin days. In BL2 he was excellent, very dangerous against those types of players. Moved to BL, hasn't really scored too many goals. 7 for Hannover in 50 appearances, 3 for Hannover in 17 appearances. Not exactly the best. I'd put MLS between Bundesliga and BL2, and therefore I'd say we would expect roughly 5-10 goals if he came in the summer. DP-level? No way.

    Wood would be fine here. He’s score 15 goals based off of his movement and physicality alone.

    He probably should be playing in mls. A team like Minnesota, Houston or Portland. One of those Tier 2 market, Tier 2 spending clubs.

    I would argue that your assumption is not accounting for how terrible the BL teams he’s played for actually are.

    Yeah, but I'm accounting for the fact that no better team wanted him, and there's clearly a reason for that? Maybe...
