    I honestly don't know anymore. Are we selling the team short? I think TFC has a chance against Tigres, but I don't know how much of a chance.

    According to FiveThirtyEight, Tigres has an SPI of 52.3, an offensive rating of 1.4 and a defensinve rating of 1.1. TFC's numbers are 47.5, 1.4, 1.4. NYRB managed to beat TFC at BMO field and their numbers were 42.1, 1.3, 1.4, so I think it's in the realm of possibility that TFC could advance.

    If we get there.... That game here at BMO vs a Mexican team, that is a big, big advantage. Most of the USMNT wins over Mexico have come in cold weather games. We are used to big games in the cold.

    I remember watching Montreal put Pachuca out three or four years ago, and being amazed. The Impact had no business even being on the field with those guys.

    So anything is possible,

    Well said. Nuff said.
    We got the beast, and Automatic FK specialist...

    I ain't worried about Tigres.

    Why is everyone assuming Auro is quality? The guy hasnít played in 2 years

    Not true, he played 16 games last spring for Athletico Mineiro before returning to SPFC to deal with a knee injury it sounds like.

    Agreed heís of a unknown quality at this point. Just funny that even the local press seems a tad too lazy to track down such an easy detail or ask the club for clarification and instead quotes soccerway 🤦

    Yes, and it says it's his 'preferred position.' So does that mean Hasler would start in front of Oso/Delgado? Or back one of them up? or they rotate starts?

    Time will Tell, Delgado and Oso both had mixed reviews last year with both turning in some superb and some invisible performances.

    My guess is that we'll see a rotation until someone steps up and produces on a consistent basis.

    Eh? He's not loaned anywhere. He played for Boca Unidos in the Argie 2nd Div in 16/17 and has been signed permanently in Uruguay since Sept.

    According to the Sud America twitter account that broke the rumor, he still has 6 months left on his deal with Sud America.

    Nothing to do with footy, but we signed Phil Balke as TFC's/MLSE's first esport guy for Fifa 18. Hoping that the org will be considering going into OWL, LCS, CSGO or HGC in the near future.

    even less chance he's a TFCII project then.

    The article on this from Molinaro indicates Hasler is to be used to backup Bradley. Also Vanney says Hasler was only being used as a RWB sub because they had no other cover.

    Said it before and I'll say it again...competition for any and all positions can only be a good thing.

    "I liked him. He was a promising right back with great attacking skills. He had a hard time defending. I remember the match when his career started to go down. It was a draw against flamengo in 2014 which he gave lots of space so Muricy sacked him and he never played well again" an acquaintance who is a Sao Paulo supporter on Auro

    Hasler is the 'new' Cooper, the jack of all trades utility player. That's fine.

    Maybe another signing at TAM level now or till season starts, but I think Bez might hold out for summer transfer window to see who's available, and more importantly, how well TFC does first half of the season.

    At this point I would assume July makes more sense unless someone really jumps out. No need to rush into anything. Now I do expect a few signings for the back end of the roster, Endoh, Kubel, a player or two graduating from TFC2 likely.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    i really doubt they will sign kubel the 3rd string rb and endoh probs the 5th ranked mid because they count has imports.i can see them signing okello to a bottom of the roster contract,they sure played him a lot in camp.i still think they will sign a offence type tam player in the next 2 wks.

This team will and and should never settle for mediocrity we are the best team in MLS HISTORY and let's keep it that way
    First of all Beita was part of the best team in MLS history. His work rate made up for anything he was missing in the way of technical skill. You said Beita was a better defender than Hasler...for a Right Back that is job # 1. good forward skills are a bonus. You donít take a weaker defender in that position. My earlier comments are not to run Hasler down - I hope he does very well. He had a promising intro TFC and showed some positive signs. For me he isnít a sure bet to be a starter for us. Weíll find out this year.

    There's not enough hype for Auro. This is a huge signing at a great price. Only 22 and he's probably one of our best players already. This kid was playing in Brazilian Seria A as a teenager.

    Our right side was not weak last year, but it was our weakest part of the team. Now it's our strength. I look forward to Auro on the wing/rb. Expect him to see a lot on the wing.

    Btw I don't think Hasler or Osorio will be starting. Priority minutes will go to Auro and Delgado until one of them play's them self out of the first team in my opinion (assuming both are healthy and fit)

    Hasker performed very well for us. On the other hand, Delgado and Beitashour were starters on the best team in MLS history, and Osorio a starter in the playoffs and the best player on the pitch for 60 minutes of the final. Why we feel the need to knock down the skill of these players baffles me, particularly after seeing almost every game in the clubs existence. Of all the midfielders we have had, who would you pick over Delgado and Osorio? Possibly Carl Robinson for a defensive role and Guevara for an offensive one, but thatís about it.


    We won the League and the cup, and looked very good doing both. The players that were on the pitch by definition were good. In fact better than good.

    Yet some on this board are putting players we have never seen play ahead of proven winners. I donít get it. They may be good, but Iím with the ones that got us here until proven otherwise. And it will take some proof.

    This, more or less. Might include a couple other (thinking Edu, Cronin, Frings OTTMH) but even then I'm stretching. All these guys have been and continue to be incredible assets who can play multiple roles and help us win everything. I can't imagine being a person who was at the 5-2 Philly game or the 3-0 New England game or any game during the "worst team ever" stretch and find room to openly criticize the talent or effort these guys put in.

    Is there even a small possibility that people like Vanney and Papa Bradley might be better at evaluating soccer players than you are?

    Just to be fair Should I also link the 2016 Final highlights where Beitashour tragically miffs a clearance in the box that Roman Torres luckily missed on
