    I think there might be some apples and oranges going on here with these comparisons.

    Aren’t Italian salaries quotes on an after tax basis usually? In addition, soft benefits for many of these clubs are significant. Cars, housing allowances, etc. All stuff MLS does not offer.

    Expect to see a lot of Chapman & Fraser during the Gold Cup - they have basically been held back because they are likely to play here but not with the CANMNT

    Well fuck that.

    I hate these stories. Unless it's coming from Herdman and those two were on the bubble already...then well too bad for them. And too bad that TFC need them so very badly to perform better than they have.

    FWIW I checked, and it is possible to order in 112 but I presume the quality/speed of service will be different depending upon where & when ordered.

    Requires a credit card.

    Available 1 hour prior to game start until the 70th minute. The price of alcohol was not more expensive.

    I ordered something alcoholic in the 38th minute and got it 4 minutes later - no lineup. Positively civilised.

    Wine, if you must know.

    I agree. And it's good for Robin.

    Maybe we can find the next Nick Nurse.

    That is a thankless job only just slightly better then him running Chivas. He should have been looked at for a number of positions last summer but wasn't. If he goes I wish all the best for him & he will be their best coach in quite a long time - but that organization is a train wreck.

    MLSsoccer.com has an article on players that have been fouled upon the most. Can anyone here find where those stats came from? I'd like to know the numbers on Pozo.

    I thought I saw Fraser passing with both feet - the shots here are not so hard but if he can become more two footed while working beside Poz - 2021 looking even better.

    2.55 fouls called per 90. wonder what the real number is (probably also goes up for the others except the top 4 and a few others that know the art of the foul and the refs buy it) /tinfoilhat

    USMNT fans who like to hate on Bradley and Altidore got to see how their team performs without them yesterday with a 1-0 loss to Jamaica.

    As a neutral, they looked pretty bad. It was a friendly, there were a lot of excuses made from the coaching side, but I’d be pretty disappointed to be a USMNT supporter. It’s not their full squad though.

    Lovitz made an appearance.

    Omar wasn’t looking too great on the speed front, unfortunately. Really, really slow. Worse yet, the large majority of the team was slow and OG was slowest of all.

    That said, he was probably the best defender on the field for the States tonight and their problem wasn’t really the defense. He actually played relatively well.

    If the Raps lose I’m blaming Hamilton for wearing a jacket emblazoned with “Warriors” to the Raps game.

    mlssoccer.com gave him the highest rating of all players (but I didn't watch the game). https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/...t-jamaica-loss

    Gonzalez was OK - he was able to pass with either foot effectively well. Thought defence first, which given the group around him was probably a good idea (that would be a good idea with the group that will be around him here too). But, its not like Jamaica was a good team - just the US was not good at all - a true B team, I'd say, which is likely Gonzalez's slot in that USMNT right now - B team CB.

    That’s about the consensus judging by commentary online that isn’t just “why is own goal still here.”

    I listened to Liam Fraser on the latest Come On You Reds podcast. I have to say I was pretty impressed with him. He sounds like a real team player with no arrogance. He was very level headed for a 21 year old.

    Interesting to hear that he was called in to the National team but choose to stay with TFC for the minutes. Good choice to get some real minutes rather than sit on the bench with the Nats.

    I could see him captaining the national team in the future.
