    Aris has announced on their website that Koke has left and had a press conference about it. No official word from Houston yet.

    Some of the goals in that video are pretty damn good. I still don't know if he's DP worthy but we will see.

    Look at the bright side, he can't be any worse than Landin was.

    LOL true that.

    I think Koke would about #5 on Dom's list (starting from Dos Santos) iirc. That is only counting the players we've heard linked to us.

    Unfortunately, he hasn't scored double digit goals in an entire season since 2007-08 when he scored 12 (his career high).

    I'll try to reserve judgment until he actually plays. But I think this is, at best, reaching...especially with the DP.

    No word yet on whether he will be a DP.

    According to the team he isn't considered a DP, which is kind of strange, but whatever.

    Looks like Benny Feilhaber is coming to the MLS and will be assigned by the MLS allocation rankings as per league rules on returning US national-team players.

    Houston is 4th in allocation rankings, they might have a small chance of getting him

    The Rockets have a better chance winning the lottery, its highly unlikely that Chivas would pass up on quality talent like Feilhaber as it is and then two more teams would have to do the same. There is the possibility of trading for him but I'm not sure if Chivas is willing unless they think a better US national is coming in the summer.

    According to twitter Ives says Chivas plans on taking him, but Goff has a source that says they may pass or trade the spot. I'd be ecstatic if Houston somehow ended up with him.

    Get r done Morey.

    Confirmed, Koke won't be our DP. $1.7 million for Koke AND then going out and signing Watson? God I love our owners right now.

    Great news. I imagine Dom is working the phones right now.

    ^ They're clicking well right now in the Clausura and I don't think Vergara would allow such thing. He's known to not shake things up unless the team has mediocre spurts.

    I don't know if he's worth 1+ $Million. Chivas will pass on him, though. They beat good teams in the FMF right now... so I don't think that's a good deal for them. :eek: That's just what I think.

    Great win tonight!

    Dominated from start to finish. Had a Goal not counted for us, then a hand-ball goal that did count, so it all evens out.
