While good when he played, he was made of glass and couldn't last 90 minutes. Think we can get better value.

Hell of a signing if the Sounders can pull this off, I know we've been after Paulo the entire off season..............especially if they can figure out how to not count him as a DP with the loan contract.

Defensive mid that knows how to get into the attacking 3rd? Yes please.

These are the types of players, and deals, the MLS needs more of.

Agreed.

I think I read that something like 90% of MLS DP money is being spent on attacking mids, wingers and forwards. Very little on trying to get players like Paulo into the MLS to try to take the next step into developing and creating a better soccer product other than bunker ball clubs that have to just play the counter ball game because they don't have the skill on the pitch to play any other way.

So him and Arreaga. We probably need another since it doesn't look like Kim is coming back.

They've already signed veteran Shane O'Neil, who played for Orlando last year. My guess is he's your 3rd CB.

O'Neill is depth, and Svensson can fill in at CB if absolutely necessary. Would still like one more true CB on the roster, as well as another winger so we don't have to depend on Roldan there the entire season.

Any team should have 4 true CBs on its roster, and the 5th should either be a regular team member who can play it in a pinch, or an Academy player.

There has been talk of Sam Rogers possibly earning a call up from Tacoma Defiance.
