I think Howard has a few more years left in the EPL barring any major injuries. I mean, it's not like his play is in a serious decline. With the help for the Toffee backline he is tied at the top of the league in clean sheets and has played 70 less mins than LLoris and Szczesny.

I'd also like to see Bryan Gerzicich in the MLS. He is a top CM/DCM in Israel. And in a few years MLS teams show try and sign Ibišević and Yura Movsisyan.

Agreed. Tim has been a top 5 keeper in the league this year. As far as 2tone's assertion that he's at the end of his career, one only has to look at a guy like Friedel. People thought he would return to MLS years ago but he's still going strong. It's not inconceivable that he might stay in the EPL for five, maybe even six more years.

His career is winding down. And Howard has stated that he wants to come back to MLS. Friedel has never stated that he wanted to come back to MLS to play.

NYCFC will throw money around. And I wouldn't be surprised if Howard comes back to MLS.

Never said his play was declining. Just stating the obvious that his career is winding down.

Tim has stated pretty seriously that he would like to come back to MLS, and NYCFC will throw some money around. I would not be at all surprised if he comes back to MLS in 2015 with NYCFC.

Friedel SHOULD come back to the MLS, where he could actually play! However, he'd get paid more sitting on the Spurs bench than being a #1 here in the states.

Also lets not forget a new CBA will be in place. Which means the salary cap will more then likely be double or triple what it is now.

I know he has not officially left...with the allocation money that the Revs received from the Parkurst trade and releasing Toja, Agudelo could get paid alot and get crucial minutes by staying in NE and MLS

Freidel stayed with Spurs to get his coaching license. They can reach a certain class by transitioning from certain Euro leagues to assistant coach and from there can more quickly move on to head coach of lower level teams and start that chapter of his life. If he came to play in MLS his post playing career options would be limited and delayed. He pretty much came out and said this 2-3 years ago when lloris took over and ended his consecutive games played streak

Agudelo is pretty set on not playing in MLS this upcoming season. The latest I heard was that Stoke is still going to sign him and then loan him to Anderlecht.

Double (Roughly 6 million) is an extremely realistic expectation. It will give teams much more power to keep stronger rosters together for longer, but triple (9 million) might be getting ahead of ourselves ha.

I know you didn't man. I feel like everyone on this site is so defensive now. I was just saying that IMO since he is in top form and if Everton stays a top 4 or 5 club I personally wouldn't prefer him to come back for another 2 maybe 3 seasons. But I agree with you. I could see him going to NYCFC. He's from NJ. And maybe you are right. I'd just like it if he stayed top class in England for a little while longer.

Wasn't meaning to be defensive. Just giving my rebuttal.

The cap is at $2.3 million right now. Triple would be around $6.9 million double around $4.6 million.

Could be conceivable it gets raised to around 6 million. Should be interesting.

A couple of factors lead to the cap increasing. League revenues (usually via attendence increases) and new tv deal. TV deals go up depending on previous ratings AND any big changes since the last tv deal. Since MLS is expanding back into Florida and adding another New York club, on top of the canadian/ pacific northwest expansion I could definitely see the cap tripling in the nex CBA. It wont be instantaneous but something like a 25% increase each year for 6 years would bring it to ~8.75 milion in 6 years. Definitely doable, even for MLS haters
