Why?

I mentioned a while back that he's exactly the type of guy United should have went after. It would have showed they cared. I have no doubts he wouldn't have come (I said LA or NY, I think) but it would have at least showed me they were interested in winning at all cost.

Maybe they just decided to put their energies into guys who would actually come here. Does it really send a message if you make a show of pursuing a guy you know won't come here under any circumstances? With that said, I would like to see them go after more guys who are at least in the Quintero class of player.

That was just my personal feelings on it. If they knew, and pursued it anyway, then yes, that is idiotic.

I would hope they at least inquired. Heath seems to be talking big on his intent to add more offensive talent while some transaction window is open. I really don't understand how these windows work, but he is at least talking a good game at this point. Let's see if it comes to any fruition.

They are called Transfer Window's. They are the same as trade deadlines with 2 major differences. They have a window before the season starts and then runs a bit in to the season. Then it shuts. You can't do anymore deals. It'll then open a gain for a bit towards the end of the season so you can make changes for the final push.

The other major difference is that you don't have to send other players in the deal. If you work out terms with the player and the team, they will sell him outright. This is how Europe does it. I'm sure the MLS is the same.

It looks like they can theoretically go work out a deal with any player from any team in the world.

Peruvian Alexi Gomez is coming to the Loons on a loan with the option to buy deal. He has played for both the Peruvian U20 and senior national teams. Heath describes him as a "set piece taker" that the team needs. I hope Jeff can translate that for me.

Free kicks (direct and indirect). He'll also probably take corners. Think of the guy that tries to score over the wall when play stops. Some guys can hit the corners with pace and some can't (they blast it in to the wall or nowhere near the goal).

For balls that are too far away to try and score directly, you need someone who can pin point a ball at the right trajectory and with enough pace. It's a tough skill to master.

According to Heath, Gomez can do that from any position on the left side and from the center mid field.

Lost to Portland, but good to see Quintero score in his first game with the Loons.

Ethan Finlay tears his ACL and is out for the year. Another starter down.
