It’s the second episode of the year and here we are talking about all the New York City FC offseason moves. Chris P catches us up on recent internet memes and we dive into a ton of twitter questions including which off-season acquisition filled the biggest need for NYCFC? With all these new wingers, where does that leave Rodney Wallace? Is James Sands ready to be our substitute defensive midfielder? We also go through the 2018 NYCFC schedule, recent signings of Cedric Houtondji and Ismael Tajouri and Joey Pelupessy who is not interested in joining NYCFC. Finally, special shout out o Dummy Run for this awesome research and tweet!
Two possible scenarios:
(1) NYCFC overpaid some players in order to spend down TAM and free up ~$300k cap space. Expect a biggish signing.
(2) NYCFC held onto TAM to save on wages but is now up against the cap. Expect a TAM-for-draft-pick type trade and maybe a release. pic.twitter.com/18ZobrsTmL
