FC Dallas 2011 Roster Dance - Updated

February, 25, 2011
FC Dallas made a couple moves this week and last, so I thought the Roster Dance was worth an update.

Last updated: 2/25/2011

Senior Roster (18 to 20)

MLS rosters are expanding to 30. Players 1 to 20 are on the senior roster and have to fit in the salary cap. (MLS teams may carry only 18 players on this senior roster if they wish)

FCD has 8 international slots in 2010 with 6 currently filled.
1 David Ferreira (I1) Colombian, (8/9/79)
2 Daniel Hernandez Re-signed for 2010. US M/D (7/23/76)
3 Jair Benitez (I2) Colombian LB, (1/11/79).
4 Marvin Chávez (I3) Honduran MF, (11/3/83)
5 Brek Shea Promoted from GA. MF US U20. (2/28/90).
6 Ugo Ihemelu US D. (4/3/83)
7 George John US CB. (3/20/87)
8 Kevin Hartman US GK.
9 Zach Loyd M/D US
10 Jackson (I4) 22 year old M/D from São Paulo, Brazilian.
11 Eric Alexander US M
12 Milton Rodriguez (I5) 34 year old Colombian striker
13 Eric Avila Promoted from GA 2011. MF US U23. (11/24/87)
14 Kyle Davies US D. (4/11/89)
15 Bruno Guarda Brazil MF. (2/6/86) Promoted to senior roster for 2011. Green card
16 Ricardo Villar (I6) Barry Gorman’s handpicked McCarty replacement.
17 Chris Seitz Dario Sala replacement. US GK.
18 Bobby Warshaw You don’t cut first rounders. US M. Could be Off-Budget.

19 Andrew Jacobson US D-mid. Acquired from Philly.
20 Maykel Galindo If he goes to Florida he will probably stick. Cuban F with green card.

21 A striker A new striker dumps Galindo or Warshaw to O-B?
22 Charlie Campbell Can he prove enough to dump Galindo? F/M
23 Scott Gordon Looking a long shot with all the home grown players. D
24 Paul Ogunyemi A player with interesting upside, is there room? F/M
25 Edson Edward (I) Injured, that has to really hurt his long term chances. D
26 Craig Hill US GK. Training keeper?

Players occupying roster spots 1-24 will earn at least $42,000 in 2011.

Off-Budget Roster (10)

Roster Spots 21 to 30. Generation adidas, developmental players, and home grown. Players 24 and under that don't count on the salary cap. MLS teams can have a maximum of 10 off-budget players.
21 Josh Lambo (Ga 1) GK US (11/19/90)
22 Peri Marosevic (Ga 2) US F (5/5/89)
23 Andrew Wiedeman (Ga 3) US F, has been playing some RB too.
24 Bryan Leyva (HG 1) Mexican MF (2/9/92) green card.
25 Ruben Luna (HG 2) (I?) Mexican striker
26 Victor Ulloa (HG 3) Midfielder
27 Moises Hernandez (HG 4) US D, former U20
28 Jonathan Top (HG 5) US striker.
29 Richard Sanchez (HG 6) Mexican keeper
30 Open Spot Warshaw, Gordon, or Campbell?

Players occupying roster spots 25-30 will earn at least $32,600 in 2011.
