    Let's be realistic now

    First I'll acknowledge that it is possible, in fact our nemesis Seattle has done it multiple times; gone on an end of season tear and just make the playoffs, and end up in the finals or even winning...

    Please don't talk about broadcasters in the roster thread. People get upset when they look here for news and then find random discussions. I've deleted the off-topic items.

    Don't mind discussing this at all. I think an 85% pass completion (one of the best records in the league for a midfielder), expected goals per 90 minutes are all still up there. So he's still quite...

    Mukhtar just won the MLS Skills Challenge so I guess we can't be too upset that he did so well against us.

    The stats show MB is still one of the best midfielders in MLS. That's all we need to know.

    The only way to be objective is to look at the stats.

    Michael Bradley has one of the highest pass completion rates of any midfielder in MLS at 85%. Similar stats hold with expected goals per 90...

    That's probably true, we seem to have weakness in developing Keepers. However, he was our best ever Keeper at the time he left (we called him "Super Stefan Frei") and he certainly was above our two...

    If we're focused on getting back players who have done well elsewhere, why not try for Stefan Frei? (Getting rid of him was the worst deal ever, and probably cost us 2 MLS Cups).

    Vanney also worked really well with Bez. It's quite likely he is not working as well with Jovan Kirovski, it doesn't seem like the players he likes are being signed.

    It's been true since at least TFC signed Giovinco that most MLS clubs have been chasing younger talent. Glad to see the UK press finally catching up. :D

    It was "always this way" since TFC started in 2007 as the DP rule was already in place and teams were allowed by then to do "discovery" signings.

    For a bit of league history, it wasn't that way...

    Rudi Schuler confirmed that TFC sold the number two allocation spot to RBNY in February for $575K.

    I'd agree with your list but maybe add a few more.

    In general you're not wrong in saying TFC has underperformed since 2018. Given their financial resources they should be so much better (mind you,...

    I honestly don't have any issue with renting him, permanent or not. If this was some random English player with a similar skill level people would be excited. Why do people hate our own?

    Loans within MLS are different. It's loans from clubs outside MLS that are typically minimum 1 year and need a purchase option to get approval from MLS FO.

    Eliminating or reducing TAM was a player negotiation point last CBA. It benefits new players coming in at the expense of current players. It's a reasonable guess that it will be gone next CBA.
