    Sunday March 6th is the start of the season Karen, all teams typically play that opening day. Although the opening fixtures were announced a while ago, the full fixture list is out tomorrow.

    They couldn't sign Beasley. Aside from that he's far too old and they really need a much younger, faster player, he simply earns too much money. His salary is $750k which is twice the maximum salary allowed according to the salary cap rules. In order to get him under the cap, they would have to either A) make him a DP, which is not going to happen for obvious reasons or B) use almost half of their $800k allowance to buy down his salary to the cap limit. This would then cause problems for all of the other transfer plans they are working on. Additionally, they don't really have any players they could trade for Beasley except maybe Mix, but that would be a pretty uneven trade, and Mix is too high-profile for NYCFC to be able to afford to let go of.

    They are supposed to be eyeing up this player as their starting LB for the new season. At the age of 21 he's already rated as one of the best players in his country:

    They cant be as bad as last year, never seen such poor defending.

    Surprised someone like Barker hasnt gone out on loan to them.

    Why? Just for the mustache? Brovsky along with Wingert were horrendus. I think NYCFC has some decent players, but those two were AWFUL defensively and the main reasons we got walked on in the back.

    City won't send any loanees to NYCFC until NYCFC have sorted out most of their squad. No point sending them a load of midfielders, say, only to find out that that's the position they could've filled easiest with permanent signings.
