  • Allocation Order, Danny Szetela

Very interesting development this afternoon if it is indeed true. According to Steve Goff former MLSer Danny Szetela is set to return to Major League Soccer. Goff said that his sources tell him that the 22-year old midfielder has signed a contract with the league and is awaiting allocation by the front office.

This is where it gets interesting if he is coming back to the league. Dallas holds the top spot in the allocation order right now, followed by DC and Colorado. If you are Dallas do you take the 22-year old or pass in hopes to get something a little better this summer? Honestly I don’t see a need for him for Dallas right now. They already have too many midfielders and adding another one that would probably sit on the bench more so with the way Schellas Hyndman coaches makes little sense.

No word on if DC or Colorado are even interested in him if Dallas were to pass. Honestly I wouldn’t be shocked to see all three pass on him meaning KC would be next in line. A move to KC kind of fits if you ask me, if not then Chivas would be next, another solid fit.

So does DC or Colorado trade up to get the top spot or will there be another team that steps in and makes a deal with Dallas? If you are Columbus do you trade up for your former midfielder?

    This is scary for the league because it's likely that no one wants him. He was at best an average player when he left Columbus and not even a starter. Who would waste their spot on the allocation list for a guy who is likely to be a sub??
