    Speaking for myself, I don’t believe anything until Molinaro or Davidson say it.

    I had a long and pleasant chat with Davidson at a social event recently. He is a true soccer hardcore, it's not...

    Oso signing would make me ecstatic. I just love the guy.

    I know the risk, it's true, all of you who are gonna hate this aren’t “wrong”…but there's risk in everything.

    I haven't really been in the TFC thread much, so if this is a repeat, sorry... but it seems to me that the best players go first, set the market, and other signings flow from there. So I do think...

    We tried the veteran Moroccan defender thing once. Ahmed Kantari. I think we picked the wrong defender that time.

    ^My concern isn’t about what TFC will offer, its more that , one, we let this guy get out of contract - Oso may privately resent that. Two, whatever we think about Manning and the BB/MB setup, well,...

    I buy your point. But I think we have very much become a selling league.

    I guess I would amend to say, Montreal is winning, by a mile, the early innings of that new game.

    Your point that it...

    Good point re Shaff. The one that got away. Not too sure about the others. Nelson, maybe. JMR, I have never seen it on the pitch.

    There is a big difference between development and minutes played....

    Agree re Anderlecht as the model. Or the Portuguese teams.

    This is true. But it depends on what else you are doing.

    Just look at us (and Atlanta, and a bunch of others) who spend and spend, without much on field success.

    Atlanta and Toronto are in the...

    Wow. Not much.

    The whole league has a lot to learn from Montreal. Not a happy thing to realize, but the facts are what they are.

    Pretty damn interesting business model for Montreal. They were a cup contender and have made a boatload here.

    It'd be interesting to understand the math on Johnston and Mihailovic. I am pretty...

    Richie increased his stock big time. He bossed Carrasco for the entirety of that Belgium game.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if none of this were true. Suarez feels like a player who will wind up in Japan or the middle east, to me. MLS hasn’t paid market for this type of player historically.

    I think you are making an interesting point, there is risk in giving Oso the bag, sentimality can be dangerous/costly… but I also think you are being way too certain and way too over the top.

    Good summary.

    A couple of people here are seriously bent by the Oso on max TAM outcome, but who exactly are we getting for equivalent dollars?

    Just to pick an example, we could try for Eryk...

    Thanks. I also wish there was a like button. I like this post, ;-)

    I felt it too when Davies scored. I was thrilled it was such an important and beautiful goal, and that he was the guy.

    Unconvincing. High taxes, the border, issues with schools, other cultural things that we think are nothing and others don't… plus we are team that would have been relegated in a pro/rel system.

    I don’t want BB fired. I do want club legend MB to go upstairs, be traded, whatever has to happen to clean that up. That I feel strongly about.
