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

    All those clubs can attract the best kids, because they have credibility when they tell the kid and his parents that they know how to...

    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...

    I am not sure about guys with the profile of Reynolds. I still have scar tissue from the Alen Stefanovic loan deal.

    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.

    Oh it's a real issue for Oso, and anyone his age. I was just saying that the quality guys you could get for similar total dollars, eg Williamson… well he tore his ACL last year. Whoever you might...

    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.

    I will agree that we are not seeing Richie back here. He's gone, after seeing that.

    What a player.

    A guy from the GTA, who has spent every minute of his pro career playing in Toronto, just played in a World Cup game.

    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 am not expecting much from free agency. No idea why that idea is so popular around here.

    1) Canadian teams have never done well in free agency. The reasons why Americans may not see this as a...

    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.

    London papers are full of CR to Chelsea speculation. Also claiming he may go to PSG, if Messi leaves. He clearly can get at least one more year with a big club.

    Defoe.

    Then there are all the guys who spent only a few games here but had nice to great MLS careers after leaving - Cronin, Dunivant, Plata, Silva, Buddle, Frei (sort of), Tchani, Urruti, Laba.

    He was released because the cost of picking up his option was $2.8M. That is obviously way too much. But Cavallini could be a decent value as a TAM striker for anybody in this league.
