    There is no way we need a buyout on Jiminez.

    I would expect that Jiminez has value elsewhere in MLS. The guy had some success, and has a good pedigree. The Lawrence and Poz stories will embolden...

    If I had to bet it, I would wager on him finding a CL club in Europe. If his wage demand is reasonable, ie a better version of what Bale just did, but with Napoli or similar.

    If he wants big...

    I think he is a Miami player, if he comes to MLS.

    Miami have all three DP slots open. They could allow CR7 to pick his core teammates.

    I don’t totally get the “I never root for Montreal under any circumstances “ debate.

    The premise is false. If TFC needed a Montreal result to get to the playoffs, we would root for Montreal! So...

    It would have been harder the the way around, ie if losing to Philly helped Montreal.

    CMNT fans want Montreal to play as many playoff games as possible.

    With you.

    I am especially focused on Kone, and want him to excel, sneaking suspicion he may be a starter in Qatar.

    TFC keeper of the year has to be Ranjitsigh. He never cost us a game.

    Could be. I like this one. That is a coherent theory.

    I would actually feel better if I thought Bob felt he had to consciously burn the year, as you suggest.

    Meccano set stadium. But I guess it doesn’t really matter. I don’t get fussed about it.

    I have never been able to shake the impression I got at the first game, when all these metal screws and the...

    Seba was, it seems to me, poorly treated by TFC in 2018 and, since they left him twisting in a contract year, he engineered his exit to Saudi. I don’t blame him for that, Manning didn’t handle that...

    ^Using 3 senior slots on GKs was not smart, in fact borderline nuts.

    There was an excellent rundown of how unusual it is, and how much roster flexibility it cost us, done by a blogger. Couldn’t...

    All teams have guys who don’t play on big deals. Its part of MLS life. We easily could have just sat Bono, paid his salary, and signed another GK. In fact we did sign one, he just never played. (The...

    I am deeply influenced by Cruyff and total football on this. The Barcelona media were constantly...

    MB is the one who has to be fired. He has to be out of the room. Now. The obvious is MB goes upstairs, but other scenarios are possible. If he wants to play, it has to be elsewhere.

    Fair enough. A bunch of people said we are pretty good or even great right now but for Bono, I said I don't think so, and a bunch of posters gave me the full "you are an idiot and an unworthy fan"...

    I disagree. He is a professional athlete and will do what he must.

    He cares about TFC and the fan base, so he would stay here for the same dough, sure… but he isn’t us, money and other things...

    Yeah, that has been my view from the day BB arrived. I kind of see it as tied to MB going upstairs at more or less the same time.

    I have never figured out if Manning would jump or be pushed, but...

    Agree… unless he does something in November. Every WC there are 5 or 10 guys who get paid because they did something that got noticed at the World Cup .

    Aaron Long situation is quite similar to Oso.

    He is likely to be a starter in Qatar.

    If he has a halfway decent WC he is guaranteed to get DP money somewhere.

    He is such a stand up guy.

    I really want him back next year, I know we will pay too much (and it may even cost us that last DP slot)… and I don’t care.

    There just aren’t stories like his in...
