Montreal Impact offseason 2018-19

Recommended Posts

I don't know about this. Silva is retweeting Olimpia stuff. I don't know what's going on, but clearly Silva wants something whether it's a pay raise or wanting out, but he clearly wants something.

You are right he did retweet that stuff. I still would be surprised if he transferred to a Paraguyan club but while he did improve over the course of the season even in late season form I think he was overpaid at 800k. I was looking forward to seeing how he would do with Urruti but if we get a decent transfer fee I would not be adverse to him going and freeing up a lot of salary.

Happy New Year to all Montreal Impact supporters around the world. 

I took the time to make a special video on the re-signing of Bacary Sagna. Have a look and enjoy!

Silva being treated like a star player on arrival in Paraguay. I was skeptical about this because it seems like a strange career trajectory, Argentina, MLS, Paraguay but maybe they are paying him a lot or he really loves living in Paraguay. I think for 800k salary we can do better than Silva so if we got a 4 million transfer fee that is well worth it.

I don’t feel he’s such a big loss. In fact I kind of expected more from him. When I went to see them play in Seattle I had the chance to meet him and speak with him. It was his first game. At the time (April) he didn’t look too enthused to be there, just the body language I was seeing looked like he was dissatisfied. Again this sentiment might have changed during the season but him leaving didn’t come as a surprise.

Interested to see if the impact show some common sense in their offseason signings this year. How about no one over 30, make that at least no one over 35 brought in this year?

Every year they do things that don't make sense.

I’m happy they at least made a splash getting Urruti, resigning Sagna and making some coin on Silva but they still have some work to do I find. Last winter was horrible. They totally shat the bed and had to sign C team quality to fill the roster. I really hope they got their stuff in order and trying to make some deals.

Now THIS is more like it. Young, talented and has the potential to sell for a proft if he does well

Yeah, it's not happening.

Very worrying interview with Remi Garde in French. It seems like all the big moves have been done, the team is pretty much set, Fanni (our only good CB) will not be back, the Silva money was spent giving Bush and Lovitz raises and for Urutti's salary and we will have the third ****** offseason of bad signings in a row and be out of the playoff picture by July (the last part is my opinion not Garde's :-)  )  If there are not going to be any major moves before the season starts it makes me want to ask for a refund on my season tickets and just not watch the season. It is one thing to have a bad season because of bad luck, injuries or some signings that were promising but did not work out but this team is run so incompetently it is hard not to be completely frustrated. I think the Urutti move was good but risky because of his salary but our defence seems very weak outside of Sagna (who was signed over Fanni because we have more CBs under contract). I can not understand why we picked up the option on the underperforming and overpaid Cabrera.

I would be fine with that. It might better reflect our playing level as well.

So do you feel that the Impact should leave MLS???

FWIW, Alex Bunbury is supposed to make his announcement the end of January re: Montreal Laval team.

Legault and ZBG have been invited and one would guess that one will be signed. 

Beaulieu and TMG will go to Ottawa. 

Or, they could sign both and loan one to Ottawa Fury.

This is a very weak non-playoff roster for the 3rd year in a row if there are no new major signings.

In other news, the club signed Urruti to an extension. They must really believe in him. I hope they are right.
