FIRST OFF: He's not gone yet, hence the 'pre-appreciation' moniker. I just don't ever want to see a "Jonathan Osorio Appreciation Thread".

People, the man has improved from what was a decent player into a player that is crucial for the team.
His national team game as captain was incredible. The guy is improving, and is crucial to the club and country.
The following is a post that I made after Leg 1 of the CCL QFinals March 7th 2018.

I'm another moron who always shits on Oso...but fuck, about time we support our boy, hes been our best player since the MLS final.

Guys can we seriously stop shitting on him...

I know mostly it's in jest from you guys... but please look at what he's put out there over the last six months.

He looks to be taking a step forward in his game.., a page out of Giovinco if you will. His touches are crisper and more decisive.. he missed a sitter today and then goes out and gets a back heel goal that was way harder to score than the sitter he missed. Altidore had a chance that I wouldn't exactly call a sitter but we all stand by him.

Let's stand by our home grown, especially when he's clearly producing.
