    But otherwise, I don’t think the club should have to resort to making Altidore domestic to meet its content requirements. Hopefully that’s not the intent here.
    Seems like it has nothing to do with the club. He just genuinely loves it in Toronto.

    Great to see Jozy back, a little out of shape. Scoring a goal on his day back was a huge statement.

    He just needs to try and stay healthy but unfortunately the way it’s been going with this guy that’s a hard ask, but if he stays healthy he will be a major factor with this team.

    His quotes from the MLSsoccer story today

    “For me it just goes to show what's real is real man,” Altidore said. “You can't fool people, maybe for a couple days but in the end, and especially in a blue collar city like this, they know what the real is. At the end of the day, they know what I'm all about. They know what I'm here for, why I came here and I'm always gonna put the team first and play for that, they give us a lift like no other.”
    --
    On the goal:
    “I kind of had a feeling it was coming far post, but the timing of the ball from Soteldo, I think makes the goal,” Altidore said. “If you see when he plays the ball to Justin [Morrow] in full stride and full sprint. And all Justin has to do is play it across. These little plays you sense what a player is all about. I think that’s what makes the goal, is Soteldo’s patience there and to play the ball at the right time to Morrow to let him cross that ball.”

    There's a lot to say about Jozy, but what stands out for me is that no matter what, I find myself rooting for him.

    The other thing that was interesting from the same interview was him saying that Javier had them practicing the type of crosses that he scored on so he had an idea where the ball was going to be when it came in. Nice to hear our "interim" coach having a positive impact with something translating from training to the game.

    I agree with your comment that he trimmed down. Looks like one of the few that had an actual off-season training regimen and did it.

    What people havn't realised is MLS has become a big time CONCACAF league in terms of shithousery & the like.

    We have 3 people really really good at that

    Osorio, Laryea, Altidore


    Like most of the league would look upon Delgado & Mavinga as bonafide CONCACAF fiends. They are not even in our top 3.


    Jozy is in another CONCACAF shithousery league.



    Especially this bit

    That's hilarious. I never saw that. Perfect example of what I was trying to say above.

    Osorio doesnt really seem like more of a shithouser than anyone else, unless I'm missing something he's done in the past.

    Dwyer would probably be the third guy, though it's less impressive eith him since that's the only football related talent he has left

    I just really wish he could be a bit humble. Yes, he wears his heart on his sleeve, and some of the things he's said have been honest and thought-provoking ... but he's also said some really stupid things too, and I wish he could just apologize for the stupid things so we can all move on.

    On the flip side, that’s how you get boring stars like Mike Trout. At least Jozy is comfortable in his skin and knows who he is.

    We need players who are willing to play the heel. It’s good for the league and entertainment.

    Well this is Jozy's chance. I feel bad for Ayo but Jozy has his real shot to flip the narrative now. I predict he does it and is back in the WC qualifying picture for the US in the Ocho.

    If you saw the postgame you saw him raving about Soteldo, saying he made the goal. Jozy knows how to do this.

    The U.S. has substantially fewer competitive striker options than their fans think. Realistically, Darryl Dike is their number one now by a fair margin and having watched all of his Barnsley games, it's fair to say he's sort of a young Jozy but with (ducks) better movement (and less speed, so there's a tradeoff).

    But past that it's a bunch of guys who are either of dubious pedigree versus international defenders (Zardes, Sargent) and up-and-comers trying to prove themselves. If Jozy's healthy and scoring I'd be really surprised if they DIDN'T call him up.

    I highly doubt Jozy will be injury free for him to be a consideration.

    But lets hope for the best.

    With a goal each of the last two games, Jozy seems back in form.

    Bringing this thread back to discuss Jozy's likely departure.

    He'll leave.

    Take some shots at the club.

    Club will leak some shots towards Jozy.

    Two years later they'll make up and Jozy will get a statue.

    Club legend. The 2015-2019 version of Jozy will be remembered as one of the best strikers in league history.

    If what's past is prologue, it sure does seem likely.

    Although both parties, throughout December and January, until now, have been oddly muted on the matter; dare say respectful.

    Be very very very quiet, it's Wabbit Season!

    Let's hope now that the grownups are in the room.

    UK press less than flattering due to Jozy's poor stint there:

    I know Altidore didn’t have a great stint in England but this is nothing more than the Brits putting one over on the Americans. I am sure there are plenty of other candidates for ”worst” ever.

    I watched a few Sunderland games at the time. I remember one move where he had the ball inside the box on the left, just outside of the six yard box. He went to cross, and I think his plant foot nudged the ball and he totally missed it. Went absolutely flying over his ass and out of play beside the goal. Just the worst example of everything that had gone wrong for him there. I was just shaking my head, and enjoyed laughing at him since he was American.

    When I heard we were swapping Jermain Defoe for Jozy that moment was still stuck in my mind (I think it was about 6 weeks before). I thought it was an absolute disaster move for TFC, especially since I really liked JD, being someone who kinda followed Spurs when Norwich isn't in the PL (which Mighty DM will remind me is often). For sure I was all over the RPB boards with criticism and doom-saying. Jozy really won me over.

    Og posted this a ways back in this thread. I don't know how you can't love Jozy playing for your team when you see this.
