    With Orlando losing, TFC has a chance to jump both Orlando and Montreal with a win.

    They are actually more dominant than the original NY Cosmos were in the original NASL, which didn't have a salary cap for most of its existence. The Cosmos won 65% of their matches, LAFC is ahead of...

    Agreed.

    This game pretty well decides if TFC has a reasonable chance of a post season. Will they come out motivated with Vanney pulling one of his clever plans off to throw Montreal off balance? ...

    Laryea has turned out to be an OK signing, which I didn't expect, as has DeLeon. Westberg I credit to Vanney.


    I'm still not sure what positives Curtis brings to the table.

    So was the 300 page thing from RB Salzburg? Or was it something that Curtis did that was totally ignored?

    I sometimes wonder if Curtis is trying to pull a "Mariner" and get Vanney out so that he can put in his own guy ... he strikes me as someone I wouldn't trust at all. The kind of business person who...

    I wasn't aware of that! I stand corrected. Maybe there is the odd top coach who would be interested in coming here then (not necessarily Mourinho).

    I think a lot of the dissatisfaction with our last couple of coaches (not only Vanney) is based on the idea that someone like Mourinho would come here. Who wouldn't want that (although as has been...

    ... and Vela the best player ever. This is better than Giovinco's undressing of RBNY.

    It seems like the best teams are solid overall but have at least one special player to put them over the top....

    I wouldn't be shocked if Vanney pulls a surprise move and starts one or both TAM wingers or changes formation, or both. He's done things like that before in key games.

    Joey Saputo is well known for his long term support of Quebec soccer, that's his one plus.

    He has been incredibly cheap (he tried to get his stadium costs deducted from his franchise fee, which...

    No way he's coming here. No matter how much you pay.

    I wonder how many would want Remi Garde as TFC coach? After all, the Impact just hired the coach that Houston has just fired. Maybe Houston can then hire Vanney and the coaching merry-go-round will...

    Wow. Not even wait for the big rivalry match. Typical for Montreal, and especially for Joey Saputo.

    From the MLS Power rankings:



    I feel that certainly applies to the players, may apply to the coach. This is a must win game.

    I feel that too, well expressed! We need something, maybe a new special player to kick start that magic again. I miss those days.

    You shouldn't be such a homer, it's widely recognized that David Villa was a better impact player than Giovinco in 2017, and Martinez was also ahead of him. That's not to discount that Giovinco was...

    That's the problem. I think we have issues in transition both offensive and defensive because we don't really have clear roles like LAFC does. Bradley tends to play close to our defenders because...

    Atuesta is an attacking midfielder, Kaye is more a box-to-box midfielder. They don't typically play with a DM, although Alejandro Guido is one he hasn't played so far this year.

    ANY team? I'd challenge that. There were players equally dominant whose teams didn't win the treble. Giovinco didn't win best player in 2017, and he wasn't the best player.

    As much as Vanney...

    In 2017 it was often the other way around. Other teams didn't adjust to Vanney. Having several different options in formation helped, which not all MLS sides can do. He couldn't do that in 2018 due...

    Robin Fraser will be Interim in the (less likely) scenario where they dump Vanney before season end. Clubs almost always pick an Interim internally and Fraser is it.
