I have high expectations for this off-season, i anticipate we're to get a couple of really good offensive players to complement the existing core. No Mo means hope.

Interesting rumour on the RPB board right now that serves as an excuse to bump this thread to where it's visible:

http://www.redpatchboys.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=25578

DeRo to San Jose is said to be "very, very very Close". Having met Technorgasm a few times I don't think he's the type to post something like this just to seek attention. Not sure how it would work in terms of MLS regulations though.

Maybe best to wait for a mainstream media source for that? I'm >95% certain Technorgasm would be on the level with this but it could be another Johann Cruyff as assistant manager type thing initiated as a windup or a snippet of false info spread internally at TFC to test for leaks. Something to keep an eye on basically.

Maybe worth noting that the domestic content rule is still to be determined. The latest update on that from both Dan Garber and Bob Lenarduzzi in recent weeks has been that negotiations were still taking place with the CSA. Think the new 30 player roster limit might be confirmed now, however?

According to John Molinaro it's 20/10 (20/4 from last year + 6 development spots):

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/soccer/story/2010/11/16/sp-garber-molinaro.html

"Garber made a number of other important announcements Tuesday for next season, including that MLS will be bringing back its reserve league, which was discontinued in 2008 after three years in existence.

Team roster sizes will increase to 30 players from 24. The six extra roster spots are reserved for players 24 years old and younger and will not count against a team’s salary cap, which for 2011 will be $2.67 million US – an increase from $2.55 million this season.

The MLS competition committee has also recommended that teams be allowed to sign an unlimited number of home-grown players from their youth academies. The current limit is four per year. Garber said the recommendation is expected to be approved."

I can't see how MLS would increase the Sr. roster from 20 to either 24 or 25 and only bump the cap by $120K. Back in '08 the roster composition was 18/10 so this is back to business after the recession.

I think 20/10 is the split, I'm a bit confused about the home-grown, is it 20/10 plus unlimited homegrown (like last year where it was 20/4 + 2 homegrown).

The move to sign more homegrown players seems to indicate that the Academy program has been more successful then anticipated.

I assume that this will be the same as the Generation Adidas program where players "graduate" after a few years, depending on how much playing time they get.

My assumption is that the homegrown players are included in the 10 development spots. Theoretically if the homegrowns were seperate from the DEV spots you could have 20 + 10 + 100 homegrown players whose salaries are picked up by the league. Not likely.

Does this Mean TFC can sign a whole wack of young proven players from Europe for like 500K- 2M each and it doesn't count towards the cap? How old is Messi again?

As a point of curiosity, what kind of roster spots are being taken up by the three young Brazilians with the LA Galaxy and on loan from Sao Paulo FC? That is Leonardo, Alex Cazumba, and Juninho. All are 22 and under and played a lot.

All 3 were being paid a base salary of $70K and eligible for an additional $10K in bonuses - so their cap hit was somewhere between $70K-$80K. edit: Sorry, as to your question of what kind of roster spots they take up those salaries would make them Sr. roster players.

http://www.mlsplayers.org/files/august_12_2010_salary_information__by_club.pdf

And Razcle, DEV roster players are restricted to the development roster salary which i believe BurkerKing is correct in pegging at $40K.

Ha ha. Good one. I think Lionel has a $250 million BUYOUT clause in his contract (you pay him, the club and his salary). Besides anyone at Barca who even suggests moving Messi would be sent to an asylum or killed outright (they take their soccer seriously).

By the way how did you like the schelacking that they gave the "best team money can buy"? 5-0 oh that was sweet.

I think the 6 youth spots are on the clubs' dime not the league. Sort of a reverse DP type thing. I also think the definition of "youth player" includes playing with the teams' academy for 2 years or more. I may be confusing things but that is how I remember it.

^ No.

The increased developmental roster spots is a direct result of the expanded adidas sponsorship deal that MLS signed earlier this year.

Looks like Ibrahim and Sanyang are probably gone as their 2011 options were not picked up (Cochrane will be keen on using Academy players to fill out the roster for reasons that should be obvious) and it doesn't exactly come as a shock that Garcia enters the reentry draft:

http://www.torontofc.ca/news/2010/12/tfc-decides-three

Toronto FC has decided to not pick up the 2011 options on Fuad Ibrahim, Amadou Sanyang and Nick Garcia. Garcia is the only Toronto FC player eligible for the Major League Soccer re-entry draft on December 8th.

“This is yet another necessary step as we look toward building our 2011 squad,” said Earl Cochrane, Toronto FC interim director of soccer.

“With Nick we simply couldn’t find a way to make him fit within our current budget situation. If we lose Nick through this re-entry process, we will miss his leadership and experience and wish him all the best in the future.”

“We will evaluate shortly where or how Fuad and Amadou might fit into our 2011 plans.”

What this does appear to mean though is that Chad Barrett's option was picked up despite the way he was left unprotected in the expansion draft.
