What's the Long Term Strategy?


We're an expansion team. We're loaded with very young players and a sprinkling of MLS vets. This year will be a long slog through the schedule (not that I won't enjoy every minute) as we pay our dues. So it looks like the course for Year 1 is:

1 Be as competitive as possible with Le Toux and Moreno

2 Continue to get minutes for the young guys to develop them quickly  - McInerny and Torres

Now the question with strategies is, when do you adjust?

1 Where does the #1 pick fit?

He looked lost in the SEA opener in midfield and more involved in the USOC game vs RBNY forward. How long will it take for him to get it going enough in practice to earn Nowak's trust to get gametime? Jack seems to have it now in Le Toux's absence.

2 The Designated Player - With the right DP(s), we could get competitive quickly. Does ownership have the capital to go into the market during the next transfer window or are things contingent with PPL Park openening and realizing that revenue stream? It's a balance of short term and long term strategies. I'm not sure a "name" player is as important as a good value buy that helps solidify the team. There've been a few rumors, but are they leading anywhere?
