The Minnesota Stars are under new ownership, and the signs of that new ownership groupís influence are starting to show.

The Stars have been known for fielding one of the best teams in the NASL on a consistent basis under head coach Manny Lagos despite not having the financial backing of an owner. Now, with new Stars owner Bill McGuire backing the team, the Stars look poised to build a powerhouse.

Enter Pablo Campos, the reigning NASL MVP. The Stars are set to sign Campos to a new deal, snatching the free agent away from the San Antonio Scorpions , sources told SBI on Sunday.


Campos scored 20 goals for the Scorpions to win the NASL Golden Boot and MVP honors. A former Real Salt Lake forward, Campos is expected to be joined on the Minnesota squad by midfielder Bryan Arguez, who is also expected to be signed by the Stars in the coming days.

What do you think of these developments? See anybody stopping Minnesota in the NASL this year?

This deserves it's own thread.

In fairness, he had something like a 20 to 1 goals to headbutts ratio last year.

I expect we are not done hearing about some very nice signings. Can't wait till the legal stuff is done with the Stars and we start hearing officially about all of this.

Yeah, we might be looking at some fantasy football stuff here. We might have to spend some time adjusting to not being the underdogs all the time.

That guy's headbutt problem had a lot more to do with timing than quantity.

I'm waiting for someone to talk about how the league is stoooopid for allowing this signing to happen, until then I'm stoked. Just like the Sanchez signing!

I was thinking the same thing.

This [censored] team.

From the things I've heard we'll nigh be competitive with MLS squads.

LET THE KRAKEN RISE.
