    Ciman back to Montreal as an assistant.

    We all know the back story so we can skip the usual unpleasantries. Glad he sorted something that worked so well for his family....

    Defoe is getting too much stick. It's fine, it worked out for everybody.

    He was Ryan Nelsen's guy, that move wasn't well thought through in hindsight.

    Drake, whatever, he spent all his energy...

    Canada has a terrible rep in Brazil. It’s the one place where you are actually probably better off with a US flag on your backpack.

    I am not sure how exactly our problem there started, but this...

    Teams negotiate with players without permission to make contact all the time.

    Actually signing the player without contacting the club is unheard of.

    I am very pleased if that is true.

    He is a big part of our DNA. I feared he would follow Vanney to LA or Bez to Columbus (particularly the latter - he is from Cleveland)

    Benezet. Same as Piatti I guess, but he did get that big goal in Atlanta (only to screw the pooch in Seattle).

    Not defined correctly. I already mentioned Vazquez and Moor. The list of guys who chose TFC would also include Cheyrou and vdW (whatever you think of him, he had options when he came). Even guys like...

    You could argue this management’s rep is simply a question mark, but I don’t think so. There are 10+ teams guys would rather play...

    The high press also involves much more use of the offside trap by the backline. So it works best when you have stability in the back (players who have been together for a while). Which we do have.

    Mertens buzz was nothing like Borre. Mertens was some random wishing on here. Borre has been reported widely, lots of journals discussing, it was picked up at mlssoccer.com etc

    ^Also leaves you more exposed on the counter, and in transition, generally.
