From someone who writes for The Athletic. Just saw that MLS is reporting it: https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/...-columbus-crew

Nagbe wanted the move, before the season started. It was reported that he asked to be traded, to Columbus, in January. Remember he was late joining AUFC training camp.......The story back then, was that his wife wanted to return to Ohio, and his family also lives in Ohio.......He will "team up" with Caleb Porter, again.

yes it is been reported on the radio. Remember at the start of the season Nagbe and De Boor had a little fall out and he wanted to leave. They patch it up but I think Nagbe still wanted to leave and also he is from Ohio so it is a perfect match for him.

Again this year is Frank's year so let us see what he will do and who is the replacement.

When did Nagbe & de Boer have a "a fall out at the start of the season"???.......It was reported, by numerous news outlets, and stated by Nagbe himself, that he was "dealing with some personal issues". This is after he arrived a day late to the training camp, in California, and de Boer gave him permission to leave camp, 6 days early, to take care of his personal issues, and he told reporters that de Boer allowed him to return home to take care of those issues & to inform him when he was ready to re-join camp.
There have been reports & speculations that his wife wanted him to return to Ohio, where both have family & went to school, and that was the personal issues. Some believe that she also pushed him to seek a move from Portland, because it was too far from Ohio.

I heard it on the Atlanta United sports radio here in the Atl. This morning the morning show with John Friky and Hue Douglas even went as far as saying "Atlanta United did a good job of keeping it in house then, bu obviously it wasn't enough to keep Nagbe".

The AUFC front office has a lot of work to do:
1. All 3 DP slots are filled (Pity, Josef & Barco).

2. They need to resign Gressel. It's reported that he's not happy that AUFC management hasn't spoken with him or his management.......He might be looking for a DP contract.

3. They still need to sign a true #10. Position been vacant since Almiron's departure & it affected your attack, this season.

4. They still need to find a solid & dependable LB. Can't continue with the "LB by committee" strategy.

5. Jeff Larentowicz is 36, so there should be concerns at DM. Need a younger, quicker & more dynamic DM.

***AUFC paid Portland over $1M, in TAM & GAM, for Nagbe, so hopefully you can recoup that money, or come close. Nagbe's departure also frees up over $660,000/year.......Also, if the Players' Union are able to get a salary cap increase & additional DP slots, in the CBA negotiations, that would give you a big boost.

They way they are talking down here is like we stand a chance of losing Pity.
Gressel maybe playing hard ball because he can more than one position and would be a solid squad player for a bottom Bundesliga team. He has options.

For the LB you have two that were injured Bello and Brek Shea, so I don't see them buying another.

Frank have some work to do.

Brek Shea did a horrible job at the start but his best two games were right before the injury. He is still under a decent contract next year so I don't see him going anywhere.

Vazquez is a different story.

Just remember that AUFC could loose players in the Expansion Draft, later this month, to Miami & Nashville.

Which team is interested in signing Pity Martinez, and paying at least $14M for him (so AUFC can at least recoup the transfer fee)???
Julian Gressel: https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/...trated-impasse
AUFC needs a reliable LB.......I wouldn't pick Brek Shea to play LB on a pub-league team.......All reports I've seen, state that Bello's play at the U17 WC was weak & disappointing.
Darren Eales & Carlos Bocanegra have a lot of work to do - They are the ones that know how to get players for a "salary-cap" team.

ATL was high on Bello and Brek Shea, who is trading for him, he will be here as a left back unless he is cut and he has pretty decent contract. A year ago Bello was the new coming? Are you now saying he is done. ATL may have the money to carry 3 or 4 LB. I don't know. let us see what they do.

When come to Pity I am just telling you the sentiment.

Yes there is a lot of work to be done and that includes Frankie too.

Where in my post did I say or insinuate that Bello "is done"???.......I distinctly posted that the reports (which was from journalists' observation & reports they got from international scouts) were that his play was weak & disappointing. If he had trouble defending & executing against U17 players, how confident would/could AUFC be, that he will be the starting LB, next season.
If you think that Brek Shea is a good LB, good luck with him.......We will know who AUFC is truly high on, November 16.

The problem is Bello is deemed the future and Brek Shea have a nice contract so if ATL think they still need a LB they will have to go out and spend a decent money. How many left back can one MLS team carry? It is not about what I think on this, it is the fact that they went out and spend on Brek Shea last season ( I wouldn't have bought him if I had a say). To spend that money on him they had to have some belief.

The fact that Bello is disappointing on the world stage within itself create a problem for AUFC because he is sold as the future, so now what do you do? Play him through? or keep him on the second team? same thing happen to Andrew Carleton.

WTH are you talking about???.......It's obvious that you have no clue that AUFC signed Brek Shea to a 1 year deal, and his Guaranteed Salary is only $225,000, which is less than what he made in 2012, at FC Dallas, before he went to Premier League.

I wasn't aware it was a 1 year. I thought it was a two year. In that case they can get rid of him and sign someone else. 225,000 is a decent amount of change for a LB MLS style, especially one who is not that good. I will listen in the upcoming days if they will release him or resign him.

My point is if they keep Brek and Bello then I don't see them buying another. Based on what you inform me, if they let go Brek then they can afford to get a pretty decent LB at the price they were paying Brek.
