    Well, they could really use the best finisher in the modern era. Even though his goal in the rain was against another club.

    Looks like Lucas Janson hasn't signed with Velez. Some talk that he is on his way to Toronto. On the #TFClive Twitter handle.

    See above in this thread. According to journos, probably not. Picked up a knock in training.

    I just wanted to say, 27 minutes in and those who were saying get rid of Bradley for Fraser make me very angry.

    This is a losing squad tonight but youíre an idiot if you think Fraser takes Bradleyís role at this point.

    Like this point?

    I took it as at the end of the season when they need to negotiate Bradleys deal, no?

    I think it would be idiotic to look at this first half on the head of one player.

    Youíll be naive to think Bradleyís agent isnít taking calls from other teams looking for a contract as a free.

    There is clearly no doubt that Greg Vanney and co must be fired. I had 10 people behind me near the end of the game just insulting Vanney for 5 straight minutes. And that coward curled up like a baby. He was quiet on the bench all game...the houston coach was lively all game. He is an incompetent coach and was never good, just had good players making up for his shit. That lineup tonight...just plain stupid.

    Nothing reliable, just that velez refuses to pay 2.2 mill for Janson. I would def pay 2.2 for him if i were tfc.

    2.2 transfer fee?

    Plus whatever he wants per year, amortize that 2.2 over the length of the contract, so we have the TAM available to close it down?

    Say he wants 1.5 a year, but a 2 year contract, that would make 3.6 a year, we have 1mm in TAM left, we canít.

    1.5, 5 year, would be a different story, 440,000, but with remaining TAM still doesnít drop him below maximum budget charge.

    This is all hypothetical and based on ďreportingĒ that we only have 1mm in TAM remaining.

    Just not seeing how it will work with our current financial situation.

    Maybe if he wants a million a year for 5, it would work, cause you could buy down the million in TAM then our budget charge would be 440,000 which in my opinion is well worth it for someone whoís quality is Better than Oso..

    From the moment he was loaned to us it had looked like he was in DP territory between fees and salary demands.

    Unless we go LA Galaxy Iím not seeing how they bring him in...

    Well that would just be writing on the wall Bradley is leaving at the end of the season.

    I think they could do it, if management backloaded the salary after the remaining half of the 2019 season.

    Good little player, not sure if he is worth the effort weíve expended in chasing him.

    Iíd rather them shake out the couch and acquire a solid DP instead of a TAM/threshold DP, but thatís just because itís not my money.

    I doubt he would ask for 1.5 mill per year. He seems to really want to come to toronto. What is he being paid now?

    4 year deal 1 mill a season plus 2.2 mill fee, 6.2 mill over 4 years is just over the max 1.5 per year. If they accept a 2 mill fee it would workout. But all this tam nonsense could go out the window in a year with a new cba.

    Said this at the beginning of the year, and will say this again. Outside of Omar and Mavinga, and maybe Moor on small salary, every other CB needs to go. Garbage CBís, with bloated contracts. We talk about a wingers and strikers all the time, which I do believe we need, but we never fixed our CB problem from last year (Omar excluded). We still need 1 more good CB, and maybe a young CB from TFC2 to groom.

    The numbers are the least issue, because the FO know what they have to work with.

    Iím thinking they landed on Gallardo because heís cheap and other teams were asking too much thinking theyíd fleece us.

    So either we have TAM left over after signing Gallardo and itís enough to bring in someone else, or we realized we canít possibly sign the players we wanted for what we had available and resorted to signing Gallardo instead.

    Gonzalez has looked good so far, and if he doesnít catch the TFC injury but it would be great. I donít think Mavinga can play the full season, which is unfortunate. Thatís the only reason to still have Ciman, but we should be looking for a younger ball-playing CB to replace him (though thatís a difficult type of player to find for cheap).

    Moor is cooked and has looked terrible this year. If they give him a Hernandez deal I could see it, but I donít see him returning after this year otherwise.

    Zavaleta should be any cheap domestic backup CB, and unfortunately I donít think Dunn is ready.

    Bunk anderson from tfc2 is looking great. He should be ready next season. Moor needs to go hes finished and awful now. Zavaletta is gone hopefully his contract is up. Ciman is fine with Omar. He can fill in when mavinga is out but those two together is a mess.

    Or maybe we have a “hadn’t trained in over a month and came out too hard to get match fit and strained a quad” issue..

    I don’t think it’s hard to believe that players pick up knocks, issues and strains while training..

    could have been something as simple as over training, trying to get up to speed too quickly does the same thing.. who knows, all speculation at this point, but I think we might see him next weekend.

    Unless Gallardo threw hands at Vanney heíd probably have to do a lot to get dropped that quickly without ever having made it to the pitch, and heíd have to be a ridiculously bad pickup to not make it into the squad with the talent we have at left wing currently.

    i keep forgetting we are half way through the year, so it’s only a partial budget charge for this year... but the contract would have to be termed to eat that transfer fee like Mik said.

    With the amount of injuries we have, Iím almost certain the trainings weíve all seen are just for show and they secretly have some sort of American Gladiators-esque blood sport going on during the behind closed doors ones.
