Hope Andy and Ned return. The rest I agree with completely. We need more quickness in the back and to link better in attack. Robbie needs a chance to play regularly and he has been inconsistent. I can understand his decision...Andy can be a spot player like Scholes, he can still control a game with his vision and composurem good through balls....

Goodbye Robby wish you luck in Europe, but your time on the field will not increase in Europe until your production does.
Interesting that Chris Seitz was left unprotected in Phily

All the best Robbie. It will be interesting to see how is picked in the draft.

We need to keep Russell. Robbie Findley was fast, but surprising his numbers were very average if not disappointing. He never had the ability to consistently beat someone 1 v 1 and get to goal.

I wish him the best of luck and hope he can find his groove in Europe. His speed will get him into games but his production will make or break him.

5 goals and a poor world cup showing aren't the ideal launching pad for europe. unfortunately findley might be destined to be the next freddy adu or eddie johnson. somebody will take a chance on him just like they did on them.

we definitely don't want to lose warner, grabavoy, russell, or bama. i'm betting we don't lose more than one. if we lose one, we get to protect one more player.

philly actually left both its keepers unprotected.

OVERRATED....His 'flashy' speed will not equal production....his time in Europe is already counting down.

I wish Findley the best and I will continue to follow his career. I'll miss him.

That said, I am excited to see what Paulo Jr. can do with more time. As for the draft tomorrow, I expect Warner to get taken.

Russell was one of the reasons we lost to Dallas. He was horrible the entire home game until Jason Kreis finally decided that he had done enough damage and took him out. Russell has been inconsistent all year. Protect Wingert, Beltran, Olave, and Borchers.

Findley was is a lot of untapped potential I hope he figures everything out in europe.

hope grabavoy is gone, unfortunately i doubt anyone wants him. i agree with warner being taken. too bad, he has potential.

hope findley finds some finishing touch in europe. good luck.

I think MLS is a better fit for Findley, but I hope europe works out for him. Good luck Findley.

Im guessing RSL will go out and find another striker. In the expansion draft I think we could possibly lose Warner or Schuler. No matter who we lose we should be ok next year. As long as Saborio stays and we pick up one more solid Striker.
