    Full respect to Kamara for being a beast, but watching Giovinco's highlights gives me goosebumps.

    You don't have to be the best team to win.

    Nemeth gets GOTY award.

    IDGAF - Seba's goal is tops for me, knowing the full story behind it.

    Seba's was the better goal to my eye. The other goal was great too but I think people were getting sick of Seba so voted for somebody else just because it wasn't Seba.

    They need to remove that shit next year where fans voting decides the winner. Seba's was clearly better.

    Also, as for Kamara, most of his goals were cheap tap-ins or headers. he did not even score 1 goal from outside the box. Was he ever mentioned in Goal of the Week this year? Most of his goals are "grunt" goals. He should stfu and stop whinning about the Golden Boot. It's Giovinco's award and rightfully so.

    I thought Nemeth had the better goal. Pretty clear to me, but I'm discounting circumstance which most of the voters do. That being said they were both phenomenal.

    Ah well, seba still has some nice hardware to take home.

    Hopefully, Seba will stick around long enough for more accolades, but is it true that he is now appearing more interested in a Barca move? In Italian, he said that teams interest made him "very, very, very happy.....next year, who knows".

    There is no one in the universe who would not be interested if Barca came calling. No one.

    The barca door is shut closed (if it was ever there). Im certain that they were looking for a temporary replacement while 85% of their attacking force was out injured. Everybody is back now.

    He already said NO to barca. It's not like his career has just begun, he has already played at the highest level before.

    No doubt. It's not even upsetting for me. It was a pity poll at that point for someone to win something other than Seba. Everyone saw how he tore the league up this year.

    New quotes from Giovinco. Says he doesn't miss Italy for now, if he were to go back in the future he'd go to Juve, wants to make the Euro squad and says he didn't believe the Barcelona rumors himself at first.

    Apparently there was interest from Barca prior to signing with TFC.

    This was yesterday, before he went all passive aggressive on Klinnsman




    Looks like SKC has a plan to deal with Seba - same as NYCFC and others tried.

    As a few people said, there's a reason teams like DCU, SJE and SKC had issues near the end of the season - all the strategic fouling they did in March through June became early yellow cards in July through October.

    I feel for Feilhaber, he probably SHOULD be called up to USMNT, based on skill. However this recent whiny spree that he's been on, kind of makes me understand what he hasn't been called up.

    And he's still too sour grapes that Seba got MVP and he didn't. Saying that a star player of Seba's caliber will struggle more in MLS next year because teams figured him out is ridiculous.

    I recently thought about writing a sarcastic comment about how MLS will "figure him out" this season and we'll have to trade him away before he loses all his value. Like how people were constantly saying that MLS teams were going to "figure out" Plata and he'd become useless because of how small he is. Unfortunately we ended up with a manager who agreed and sent him packing.

    It's hilarious to suggest that teams weren't trying to take him out of games last season as well. Some teams will succeed, and others will fail, or get yellow and red carded to death trying. I'm also quite certain that it's more likely that Giovinco will be better adapted to MLS next year than that MLS will be better prepared to stop him. He's just had a season to figure out how MLS defenders play and how to beat them.

    ^^^^ yup.
    Giovinco wasn't at all the player he is when he first arrived... It was clear that he was "lost" the first few games.
    It's silly to think that professional soccer teams didn't try to do everything and anything possible to stop Seba after April. This year, I hope TFC can be more prepared for it, and capitalize on the fact that the only way to stop him is either foul him, or crowd around him with 3 defenders (which didn't work for NYRB, btw).

    For long term success with Giovinco our #2 striker needs put in a good shift every game as we cant have Giovinco be assaulted every game.

    Even if Giovinco draws fouls he is going to get a beating and will wear down by year end, Altidore needs to have a much bigger presence on the pitch this year and needs to put in more work to force other players to mark him more aggressively, he has the muscle to take the load off of Gio.

    Been thinking about this one

    http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/35422217

    Beckham was bigger in marketing terms, but the Seba signing may be the greatest value signing in MLS history. We now have a direct comparable, with a transfer cost of GBP 25M!
