POLL: Would you rather force a deal or stick to your guns?

Sounders FC general manager Adrian Hanauer seemed to open the door to the possibility that the team might not land the big fish before the international transfer window closes Monday. When asked if he’s more encouraged or less encouraged that there will be an announcement coming up, Hanauer said:

“We’re working frantically. As I’ve (said before), these things, especially when you’ve got your eyes set on a specific target or two, they get really hairy and complicated, and it’s been no different. We’re working hard on it, but again we’re also not going to be desperate and stupid. If we’re unable to nab our target or targets, we’re going to have to live with the consequences.”

Feedback to the comment has been a little mixed. Certainly this tweet from Alan Hinton was more well-received, but what do you think?
