Luis Silva traded to DC for allocation money
This trade had better make sense in a week or two. Yes, Silva has stalled somewhat this year. He has scored zero goals and had not established himself in anyone position. However he was a young player that TFC fans were willing to give time. He was the sort of player we figured would be enhanced by new talent, not dislodged by new talent.
If it is true that players arriving would have sent Silva to the bench, maybe this is an acceptable move. Today it just feels wrong.
