    yeah my bad, that was apparently BMOs concert capacity. Either way, going up to 47k for the world cup seems brave as a permanent move given that the league sweet spot is a pretty respectable 22K.

    I mean… he was never in the position to be. The one season he played in the hole, for Hereenven in the Eredivisie, he had 15 goals in the league and another 3(? going by memory, sometimes shoddy) in...

    Bradley has quite a big upside, and some downside too. He is having statistically one of his best seasons. He’s hooking up the back line and frontline, the wings and the back line. Mostly, he’s...

    I added in the percentage of available seats used for each team, just to put some perspective on potential.

    Quite a few spots of worry, but mainly New York and Miami, given their relative market...

    He was averaging two tackles per game the last time I looked, so he’s not terrible defensively, either.

    His inability to keep up with explosive attackers sometimes hurts us but usually it’s when...

    Fun fact number II, Mavinga and Michael Bradley overlapped in the Premier League; in 2011, Michael had a short loan stint with Aston Villa but they didn't bite. Chris was promoted to Liverpool's...

    Now that they know how the midfield is going to operate the lion’s share of the time, it would be nice to get Okello back from injury, too, get him into a backup role with some solid minutes.

    I...

    Calling it a xenophobic approach was likely unfair on my part; he may well have decided he had a short time to turn around a flailing team and that communication would be a major issue with multiple...

    Cheers Robin.

    What do you think of Adam Pearlman? He looks like a significant prospect. He’s only 17, he’s got great numbers this season, high passing percentage, winning most of his duels and...

    US Nats third choice Ethan Horvath is on perma-loan from Nottingham Forest, Richie’s club.

    He came in last year and the public line was he would have an equal shot at the job. But Steve Cooper...

    Nelson did really well in the last game; his stat line was solid and he was in the league’s young players of the week round up. But obviously we saw in Charlotte how well Kaye works with this system....

    Bookies seem to like us at 3-1 to win by 1 and 10-2 to win by two, according to bwin.

    yeah I had that as 2017. I suspect I conflate good TFC stuff into smaller passages of time.

    Even Nashville’s announcing crew, in replaying the penalty “block” by Bono in slow motion, admitted it wasn’t a penalty. Sapong is already over him and reaches back with his foot, kicking off Bono,...

    If they don’t turn things around really soon, I suspect he’ll get the chop.

    If they lose the next two, maybe even sooner.

    They’ve got a lot of money sunk into a club that is in free fall and...

    Before anyone points out that he left us to go to college… we retained his rights and turned down a chance to sign him before Columbus.

    Whatever his gifts, evidently there was something in him...

    all desirable for sure

    but I think one of the most telling things about that match was that two of their goals were clearly down to bad calls. Sapong clearly is over Bono the n kicks off him --...

    In the power rankings this week MLSsoccer had us up to 18, up five.

    Still, in Nashville’s two-spot decline they put its performance down to “conservative” decisions.

    I suspect he clicked late in that game that tactical/positional discipline is taken way less seriously in this league than any in Europe, and that he can take advantage of poor marking to shoot all...

    I'd like to think at the club's request. Nothing positive for TFC out of it; if he has a horror show, it's disheartening and embarrassing; if he wins, it's expected as the most expensive player. And...

    Yah probably the best goal in league history and it wasn't nominated. They also had us as low as third in the 'power rankings' that year despite being absolutely dominant.

    Unbelievably not nominated for goal of the week. Okay

    mlssoccer's staff barely disguise their TFC dislike anymore.

    Yeah, agreed. Give him a start and given Jesus a few later appearances to put fresh legs against tired.

    Isn't Jiminez coming to us right off a season in Poland as well? He looks a little leggy to me. His movement around the box is less busy than when he first got here.
