    Transfermarkt has him at 8M euro. Granted he's never been transferred before so it's all speculative valuation, but can't see it happening unless we're given the five-finger discount - he'd break the bank.

    Edit- on another page on the website where the entire MCFC u23 team is listed, his valuation is 500k. And his contract is until 2019. Maybe a loan????

    Yeah. Would never want to buy him.

    I think he's a prick. Frankly, not sure I'd even trust him on a loan unless he's grown up a lot.

    Did I miss anything? Did he get caught with his pants down, either literally or figuratively?

    I thought he did pretty well when he was with us, given how poor our squad was. My argument back then (IIRC) was that he is a full back who only makes sense in a system where the rest of the team can be trusted not to frequently lose the ball at unpredictable moments. We actually have that now. If Sweat can be vastly improved and consistently pretty good for us, imagine how devastatingly good Angelino could be. We even reserved his number for him.

    So I checked to see how much cap room we have. Why? Because I have nothing better to do. Keep in mind I did a shit job estimating but I don't want to redo this so if you want a precise number fuck off and do it yourself. I was shocked when I saw how much we were spending brace yourselves... 2,271,000. With my terrible estimating and a lack of transparency it's probably closer to 3 million but in a league that caps at 3.845 million we can definitely get a starting quality left back without having to use TAM.

    He's a slacker who overvalued his own contributions. Willing to bet PV wouldn't take him given his crack down on individuality.

    I fully back PV's decision. If I'm not mistaken, he (Angelina) was fairly ungracious about his time here after it was over.

    And more importantly, he's a child. He plays, acts, talks and thinks like a child. No need for that in a team full of guile and chemistry.

    I don't know why Midas MulliganMidas Mulligan thinks that of him, but I always thought he was more interested in showing himself off than being team focused. It was like NYCFC was somewhere he had to put in time and not the team he had to help to show he could help a team. This is in total contrast to how I view Harrison or Herrera. I can't quantify or justify this opinion. It could be wrong and unfair. Could also be the effect of playing for Kreis instead of Vieira. But I'd rather not have him back unless he's the only decent option:

    ETA and Midas posted just before me anyway.

    Wow, I didn't get that impression at all. I remember Vieira speaking glowingly about his work ethic at EDS. I also have a feeling that his choice of number, tattoos, expensive haircut and fancy Dan footwork may have rubbed Kreis the wrong way. Especially in contrast to the ways that the Grabavoys may have rubbed him.

    Admittedly, I've linked only to an article that confirms my POV and didn't spend a ton of time digging for dirt.

    3 loans. No takers. No plans for him at MCFC. He's 20 and listed on the U23s, a good indication he has no future there. He's had 2 loans to other clubs (not even counting us) where he should have shown something. Still, no offers to buy.

    Something a little off there. I'm not doing any more research either. I thought he had some talent. Didn't seem to have a lot of guts.

    Mata Instagrammed driving himself to RBA for the Gold Cup match, so either:
    He's driving with a cast on his foot.
    He's driving with his left foot.
    He's healed!!

    About as many people at RBA for that game as for RB games.

    And since Costa Rica basically is already qualified and just playing easy teams.

    I don't speak Spanish all that well, but my gist - he thinks that Costa Rica's pride and heart and what they learned will lift them further than they got in the last World Cup. He thinks that Villa is still ready to play and score for Spain. He is happy at NYCFC but still dreams of playing at the highest levels of the game in Europe.
