First of all, good luck on getting a new squad up and running!
I 'd like to discuss with you some more options though - not to join mine or merge or anything like that. I 've been in your place and I can understand the reasons you left and started from scratch as well as the reason you are going to be suspicious to rejective to any such proposal.
There are more options though that can help your squad - and mine, I am not that altruist after all but definitely honest - and benefit both of us without losses.
Please look for me on LINE app so we can discuss these options.
