MLS Movable Parts Rolling Ticker

I can’t keep up with this, so you folks are going to have to help:

Warner...not Findley

• Both Robbie Findley and Collen Warner left unprotected by Real Salt Lake….not that they should have been protected over those that were.

I think the Timbers or Whitecaps are more likely to take a shot on Warner who’s shown flashes of having more potential than Robbie Findley already hasn’t realized. Also, signs point to Findley seeking work abroad.

• Love the Union moves over the past 18 months. Justin Mapp, Roger Torres, Brad Knighton, Sebastian Le Toux.

And now Brian Carroll, exactly what the team needs. Savvy veteran in the middle of the park.

What will Philly do on the backline now?

• Jeremy Hall to Portland. Young back, developing in the confines of Portland. Nice move Timbers. Don’t expect to see any more New Yorkers heading westward now.

• Allocation Central: The Timbers send some cash to the L.A. and in return procure an allocation slot for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. L.A. gains it back after that. There’s something exciting about an international slot headed to Portland…

    Carroll…kind of an interesting move. You already had Miglioranzi, Coudet and Okugo at that position. Since Okugo is a Generation adidas player, presumably one of Miglioranzi or Coudet will go–what, precisely, is the point of having three holding midfielders running around? (As for Okugo, who’s been tabbed as a promising youngster on the u20 side–and played like one, for good and for ill, when he’s gotten the chance–this has to be a disappointing move. Contrast to Red Bulls, who actively traded away veterans because of Agudelo.)

      also: your boy Dax McCarthy was left unprotected. Shocking! How quickly does he get picked? Not too many guys who are obviously better than he is.

    Robbie Findley is left unprotected…and Sweatpants still keeps starting him up top for the Natties.

    Please, someone shoot me in the head. Or smack BB upside his.

    Robbie Findley is bolting for Europe. Dallas has a deal in place involving one of their players, maybe dax…probably dax
