    I think they were embarrassed by the nature of the loss but overall I don't think management or Vanney really care. It's on to the season now and I don't see any knee jerk reactions. Everything seems measured.

    This says more about how closely you've followed MLS than anything. DeLeon has always been quality.

    He's more of a steal than a surprise.

    MLS power ranking has TFC at 15, up from 19. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/...r-opening-week

    Would be interesting to know if we advance up the list once Pozuelo arrives. Beating NER next would help as well.

    A bit of a reach , he’s fast but has a history of missing wide open shots also , , last years playoffs ...he was hot and cold ....he is what he is ...an established mls blue collar player that every team needs .His best quality is he has the desire that Morrow had first season .

    Sources say Ricardo Quaresma is pretty much a done deal on TAM.

    I really hope not. That kind of move seems to reek of desperation.

    At this point I'd rather wait a bit and see what we truly need. The transfer window is open until May, so there's no strong rush. Give Jozy and Poz 4 or 5 games together and re-evaluate from there.

    I could be wrong but I'm not sure I believe that. Think we go young and Argentinian

    the only hint of this is when manning mentioned that they are looking into the character of a player,RQ has had some character issues in the past,he would sure sell some tickets.

    I'm not convinced he'd really be a huge draw on his own - he's been out of the limelight too long.

    At this point, the thing that will sell the most tickets is winning.

    I'd prefer to bring in players much younger than Ricardo Quaresma.

    I am ok with Quaresma as long as they bring in another winger who is 20-25 years old.

    I would pass on old guys with attitude who won't contribute much besides a name. This guy is VDW part II.

    This is counter to what Manning and Co. are building. Any rumour where we are bringing in someone over 33 years old should be considered fake. (as Mister Karpf has proven).

    The thing that will sell tickets is not a name player, it'll be a winning club.
    Don't forget, this is the city that had a sports team making money hand over fist selling Tie Domi and Darcy Tucker Jerseys in the early 2000's.

    TFC doesn't need a name, they need difference makers. (not saying the above mentioned are that, just proving we don't need to go the over the hill DP route)

    There's no need to spice things up, Mister Karpf when you have a player coming in with these kind of skills:

    This is why they aren't bringing in a Rooney.

    They are trying to make a winning team the "brand." While they played up Giovinco a bit, their main emphasis has been on the overall product.

    So any player that does not lead to a stronger team will be rejected. That's how we can spot fake rumours right away.

    Robert Boskovic, Aidan Daniels and Shaan Hundal loaned to Ottawa Fury. I think Duane summed this up pretty accurately:

    Maybe a winger is coming sooner than expected.

    So why Telfer to York 9 and the other three to Ottawa? Based on what I saw last season Telfer is more of a MLS ready product where the other three never came close to an MLS bench. Interesting TFC said they will be sending two more to Ottawa....
