    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...

    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...

    Post of the year, this. “Video game on cheat mode”. Bravo for that, what a perfect metaphor.

    We should be a hell of a lot better than we are, already.

    I agree that Bono is a disaster and has cost us points. Of course. I also buy the idea that his form impacts everything. Of course.

    But other teams also have injuries and out of form players...

    We have chemistry problems that are going to a while to sort out. You bring in four major pieces, that would make it 8 major pieces signed in 6 months.

    Interesting problem for TFC. They obviously badly want Oso to go to Doha as a TFC player. But then they want the right to walk away. I wonder if Pana would let them call it a loan for three months....

    I really hope this has some basis in reality, as it might mean Oso isn’t hurt, but is instead sitting in anticipation of a transfer.

    I also think it would be better for him to be in full training...
