This is how major disappointments are created. Ask the Lakers last year.

For sure. Or the Blue Jays.

Still, taking last year's team and replacing some of our worst players with Bradley, Defoe, Gilberto and DeRo has to have an impact. I mean, think about dropping those four into the spots occupied by Jeremy Hall, Robert Earnshaw, Justin Braun and Bobby Convey.

The potential for a turnaround is massive but I worry about how much they're spending on them, especially an aging striker like Defoe. That said, Keane came over and has done really, really well for Los Angeles.

Is DeRo even any good anymore?

Defoe is 31. I think he must have something left.

Not as a main man, but I think he can still be effective in a reduced role.

DeRo can still hit a freekick as well as anyone in the league, that'll be a great asset with Gilberto and Defoe earning good ones.

Here, someone put this up on the TFC forum:

Last year's starting 11 first match of the season:



This year's potential starting 11 (depending on what happens with Laba, of course).

Not sure what it means for people outside of the US but NBC is apparently out as an MLS broadcaster with Fox taking over the package. That's a blow for MLS in terms of presentation (though if Fox bid more, you can see why they'd take it) because Fox's presentation is really bad.

ESPN stays.

The one thing that I hope is that Bradley gets to play in some sort of double pivot system as that is clearly his forte and the reason why he was ousted at Roma this season (new coach prefers 4-3-3). A traditional flat 4-4-2 does utilize that kind of double pivot, but it needs to be with someone he can trust to stay back, as Bradley is incredibly intelligent and won't leave his team exposed for a counter attack; I've seen it a lot with the National Team, he plays so far deep at times because his partner is too adventurous.

Anyway, I actually don't mind this transfer now that I've thought about it a little. I've really changed my opinion a lot in the last year or so on how best to develop players in all kinds of sports and the conclusion has been that every player is different and you never really know what will work best. Hell, Donovan has been tremendous for the National Team and he's played essentially his entire career in MLS.

If we hang onto Laba, he'll be the defensive one and Bradley the box-to-box fulcrum of our team. It's a really exciting prospect, but I don't know how we'll hang onto both. We have one DP too many, so we need to figure out how to restructure or renegotiate Laba. But Bradley will be the key cog of our team, either way.

Garber says MLS is "losing between $75m and $100m a year". That sounds like pre-CBA negotiations talk to me.
