    Wow! Guess TFC/MLSE did not appreciate the criticism of last season; won’t be finding a home in their fold anytime soon. So…

    Well, he was an okay GM for Ottawa Fury, but I'm not sure he's ready for GMing a level up. I wish him the best though.

    Bad times at Chase. Unfortunately ironic given playing the same club and what almost could have happened in an earlier match between himself with Messi. Feel for Lukas MacNaughton. Likely out long-term. Will probably miss a CMNT opportunity and experience. Moreover, perhaps real career implications since a bright future at Nashville may be in question given his contract seems to be up for renewal at the end of this season.

    Must be gutting for Crew supporters.

    These gigs often don’t last all that long. He will be well positioned to come back to Toronto to run TFC and St Etienne for Kilmer in 2026 or 2027… ;-)

    There's an article about Schaff on the MLS website. https://www.mlssoccer.com/news/jacob...ses-for-canada
    And I'd like to highlight this quote:
    Toronto FC had caught wind of this Canadian kid balling out at a New England prep school – Berkshire went 19-0 his senior season – and invited him in for summer training stints with their third team. They would continue to court him persistently, even after he declined their initial offer to leave school early to join their academy.Therein lies a counterintuitive facet of Shaffelburg’s story, given the prevailing conventional wisdom about youth development.

    “If Jacob had not gone to Berkshire,” Hudson told The Athletic, “he would not be playing professionally right now.”

    TFC’s pitch to Shaffelburg was eventually successful, beating out interest from the Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution and a full scholarship from the University of Virginia. He signed a second-team contract with the Reds in the fall of 2018, then earned an MLS homegrown deal the following summer after a roaring start to that campaign.

    Yet he would turn into a casualty of Toronto’s big spending on imported veterans like Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi, struggling for playing time despite mostly showing well when he did get on the pitch. As TFC’s ambitious blueprint unraveled over a nightmare 2022, Nashville swooped in to acquire him on loan that August, later exercising a purchase option for what now looks like a song: $300,000 in General Allocation Money and a potential $50,000 in additional performance-based metrics.

    Music City has proven a welcoming home, on and off the pitch.

    “The hardest moment of my career so far was just before getting traded to Nashville,” Shaffelburg revealed to OneSoccer’s Kristian Jack in a recent one-on-one interview. “I was going through a rough spot, up and down from the [TFC] first team to the second team, not getting a lot of feedback or help during that time.

    “I was talking to my dad quite a bit, my mom, just trying to figure out what the next best step was, because I was just in a really bad place. So it was just whether or not to keep playing or what the best option was – maybe go back to Halifax Wanderers, just to be close to family, because I'm a big family guy. So that was kind of what was going through my head, it wasn't really clear. But luckily, Nashville believed in me.”
    I just wanted to point out this to those who wonder why TFC academy can't produce first team players. The club is absolutely toxic.

    Just. So. Damning.
