    This thread is a catch-all for general banter not specifically related to transfer rumours.

    Just looked at the FourFourTwo USA's list of top 50 USMNT players.

    https://www.fourfourtwo.com/us/featu...ers-2017-usmnt

    Morrow, Altidore, and Bradley are number 13, 3, and 2 respectively in their rankings. No other MLS team has that many quality players so high on the list (Seattle's are next closest 45, 41, 12, and 5).

    It would be nice if someone would make all of TFC goals into a Montage including post season...

    Would be a tad earlier than usual (2016 and 2017 were around Jan 10-15, I recall).
    Means there is more time to figure out road-trips at least (I'd be down for DC, especially if our game is in Audi Field)

    Apparently 15 of DCU's last 20 games are at home due to the late opening of the new stadium

    3 TFC players called into USMNT January camp: Bono, Morrow and Delgado!

    Good for them, recognizes the massive club season each of them had. On the down side, USMNT is a complete mess right now. Getting called into this camp not predictive of future call ups.

    In 2017 MLS teams spent $210m in player salaries. The MLS Salary Budget allowed for $85m.Teams spent an additional $80m through DP exemptions.Which means teams used $45m in TAM/GAM to buy down contracts

    That guy also did some serous looking into how teams can grow their wage budgets if they don't spend on DP's - not that much it seems.

    Looks like SKC has grabbed the latest version of Bez.

    She worked for eight years as senior manager in player relations in the MLS league offices. Her job was to help teams manage rosters and budgets, while also approving player acquisitions and trades.

    Also, I am amused that the MLS MVP award is named for an active Liga MX player.

    "Failure simply isn't an option at this stage. TFC pushed its chips to the middle of the table when it splurged on Bradley and Defoe and reinforced its bet by making savvy acquisitions elsewhere. This collection of players is capable of delivering on the promises made during the close season. There are no more excuses available for TFC. Only success will continue the process of atoning for the past and establishing a higher standard for the future." FOX Sports

    So new TFC Jersey is coming out about a week before the first game then? So Mid-February? When did the home jersey come out last year? In 2016 I think it came out days before the opener

    IIRC ours alway seems to come out very late, if not the last one in the league. No idea why.

    BMO is taking over the naming rights of the training ground, supplanting KIA. It's now the BMO Training Ground, and BMO is the official partner of the TFC Academy as well.

    It wasn't that long ago we were speculating BMO might have been pulling out of their sponsorship of TFC...
