    ^This is just a sad comment on the crap going on in the newspaper business.

    This paper has no beat reporter on the Sounders, now this.

    I feel for the Sounders fans on this

    Stumbled upon this a moment ago.

    They admittedly don't much follow the sport, but it were still neat seeing Jozy represent the badge in a somewhat unconventional forum, as we're accustomed to seeing.

    You can see how much he really loves Toronto, and it's wonderful!

    I'm going to guess this was a case of them having all of those banner images and whatnot ready to go at the throw of a switch if Seattle won... and someone accidentally threw the switch.

    To quote myself --- I know, very tacky.....is this 66th minute song thing happening? have we settled on a Jozy commemorative song? I'm partial to my simplistic lyrics (I figure everyone will pick it up quickly which is key), but hey that's just me.....ha ha ha ha.....either way, whatever we choose, something needs to be ready to go in less than a month.....I think a nice bookend from first goal at 23' to Championship winning goal at 66', is an obvious must have......

    50 goals in 96 appearances across all competitions for Jozy now. Plus 11 assists in MLS regular season, 4 in the playoffs, and 2 in the VCup.

    He has scored in five straight finals.

    The bum.

    Source: Altidore target for Serie A, Ligue 1 club



    No club in EU will pay him half he is getting from TFC,unless TFC wants to dump him and get some money I don't see why Altidore would go back to Europe.
    Great love does not exist without joy and without great suffering ,that's why One club is worth only as much as its fans !

    I think it is possible, if TFC don't receive much of a fee. TFC owe Altidore about $7M for the rest of this year and next, and I suspect if you gave Jozy a kiss and rounded it up to $10M for two full years, he might be willing to move.

    I would understand if he is interested in a move to a good situation. The endless USMNT hatefest for him is really awful, and he has now done everything there is to do in MLS.

    I disagree that $5M a year for two years is double what Altidore would command in Europe. It's on the high end, but it's not silly, but if TFC needed a meaningful fee also, then the number could probably become silly.

    Mitroglou is is an interesting comparable. Signed by Marseille a year ago at age 29 for €15M (plus €10M wages) for 4 years, that’s USD $7M a year. Mitroglou is obviously a bigger name, but he has had a similar career arc to Jozy (big success at home and in Portugal/Holland, but flamed out in England)


    I have spent the last two weeks immersed in Ligue Un, and I think he could play in that league. Ligue Un (ex PSG) is a similar level to the better Mexican teams.

    Watch OGC Nice here, now coached by Vieira, who are widely rumoured to be imminently moving Balotelli to Marseille.

    I love Jozy and hope he stays
