With player expansion next season who are some players foreign or domestic that you would like to see added to the player pool?

Klose, Iker Casillas, Pirlo, Rio Ferdinand, Anelka, Tony Hibbert. You know, the kind of top-drawer talent MLS keeps bringing in year after year.

The US needs to get super aggressive in the Argentina league about trying to get their top players or going after some of their rising young talent. Eastern Europe specifically Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Slovakia could also be a potential tapping ground. I think its okay to go after older players but we should be more restrained with that. We should try to go after younger talent or go after youth prospects.

I'd like them to try to be the front runners in the only untapped market. Asia. Europe already has a stranglehold on South America and African young talent. They don't look to Asia for young guys (they pretty much wait until they are international starters). Mls has started slightly but we could increase the quality of olay by bringing in young Aussies, Japanese, Koreans, etc. lots of the Asian countries are starting to invest in youth camps and systems. Mls could exploit these and make huge gains.

Gonna enjoy seeing Kaka for Orlando.

Still confused by the Lampard move for NYCFC. Could've had Jones for less fir the same or slightly better production .

LA will have a DP slot open when Landon retires. Wonder who they'll be looking at.

You know LA will try to go after a big name attacker in the offseason to fill Donovan shoes.

Possible candidates:

1. Robinho
2. Frank Ribery
3. Wesley Sneijder

Remember there will be a new CBA negotiated before the start of the 2015 season which means teams will more than likely have anywhere from a 5 to an 8 million dollar salary cap and possibly another DP slot.

I also wouldn't be surprised to see some more US players move to MLS in the offseason i.e. Lletget, Gatt, Shea, Diskerud, Agudelo, Altidore, Gomez, Torres, Spector.

I think LA will go Big. The top 5 players in no order that will could come are
Zlatan, Ribery, Podolski, Robben, Cristiano Ronaldo yes would not be surprised.

I could definitely see a few of those. Zlatan, Robben, and Podolski. But Ribery is still young enough, he'll stay in Europe. And Ronaldo is preposterous. He will come to MLS when he's 36 or 37 and ready to retire.

Honestly, has MLS been able to lure any decent-sized names that are under 30 years old from Europe? I'm genuinely curious.

Ronaldo isnt realistic right now. But Zlatan, Robben, and Podolski are good.

Soon there will be that one European player. He prob wont be all that great but he'll be a trailblazer. Time is the only answer. A new TV deal, new CBA, and new teams are a good start.
