    TAM deal for Gonzalez, per a source. Toronto did pay a transfer fee, but I'm told it wasn't very significant.

    Iím echoing this. A lot of Atlas fans think this guys garbage. From his highlights, heís slow as shit. Man oh man if this signing doesnít hit, we are so fucked. Are cap situation is a tire mess.

    I have exactly the same opinion!
    "Two and a half year deal plus option." - and this is extra painful.

    Damn... all things with this squad are going from bad enough to worst.

    Certainty my fear as well. At surface level, this looks like settling on familiar faces rather than going out to find the best player for the money.

    I know playing next to Mavinga speed matters less (and in general iím not looking for a speedy player at CB) but my god, we might be the slowest team in MLS.

    Exatly!
    Will this infatuation with ex USMNT members ever end at TFC?
    To me this aspect is like a cancer rooted deep in the organism.

    Comment from an Atlas fan on twitter:

    "JuanPablo Pereznieto@jppereznieto 53m53 minutes agoMore

    Replying to @KristianJack
    As an Atlas fan, this is the best news of the day. Games over the last year have been painful to watch with Omar back there."

    Well it wasn't rushed. This has been in the works for months and should have been done last window if they had their hearts set on him. I was hoping something better would have presented itself but I guess this is what we get.

    Bottom line: CB not our biggest issue right now. Better be some attacking players coming in.

    So, we've had the top Allocation Spot twice this season and signed two CB's, neither of whom if a clearcut starter above Moor or Mavinga

    Well I guess we should be expecting Menendez or Jansen. Anticipating another of the names that were being heavily rumored in the last window to be signed. Hopefully they move some players out and add more than a couple players. We really need some refreshing.

    I have reservations about the OG signing. I'll be really curious to see in the presser how they justify the signing and who pushed for it. That might give us more information on who is actually making the personnel decisions at the club and thereby who to blame when this all goes south.

    Wow, when you actually say it out loud... what is this GM doing? Uness there is a trade happening with someone with Ciman, i don't understand what the heck is happening... why do we have like 23 CBs?

    Obviously, another shoe will drop in July, but holy hell, the FO is looking inept by keeping silent (maybe hint at something?? Anything??). We are losing people to Gold Cup now... we are going to regress even more. Man, there will be some more pain before it gets better. Hopefully, not for too much longer

    I am assuming if he is good enough then maybe him too but he is far from a big time pick up and definitely not the 'you will be happy' line however it went when mentioning our possible moves.

    As for the OG signing, I suspect Moor is retiring sooner than later now.

    Omar was the best cb in mls before and isnt even old. Hes coming from a much better league too. Janson was scored 5 goals in 12 games i think. Hes also doing well in argentina.

    Even worse there have been three CB's brought in via allocation order this year when we had the top spot. Out of the 2/3, we have the 2nd and 3rd best. Our guys are geniuses. Clearly.

    Good point. Safe to say the first one wasn't the roaring success that management expected

    Yes, you are likely right about them coming in.

    i like DeLeon. He's been a solid addition. But about the only one in a while .

    Itís part of being ďFavour FCĒ for the USSF.

    Itís bizarre that out of all the teams Toronto FC has adopted a hire the USMNT, bring them ďhome,Ē and pay them big bucks strategy.

    Deleon has 2 goals in how many games as a winger? It’s not good enough.

    Ummm Pozuelo?

    I think this is a great signing, Omar was the best CB in MLS before he left, yeah things havent gone perfectly in Mexico but not many here have really watched him, they just assume he'll be shit based on some comments that he wasnt great there.

    Also remember Ciman was a Bez singing. We should have had Omar at that time over Ciman. Omar still in his prime, looking forward to seeing what he can do here.
