    Hahahahaha amazing. I might just hang out there to see Seba. Tell the authorities I'm there for good cause

    It's easy what you would do.
    For argument sake say he's worth $6m/yr.

    Say your TAM is $2m left
    Pay him 2million this year. Which is $1m less than he would get paid. (6/2)=3
    For half a season
    Next year pay him $7 m.
    6 plus the 1 you owe him

    You can do a lot better and a lot younger than Giovinco for $6M.

    That would be a massive waste of money and a blown DP spot (if we had a free one).

    I wouldn't go above TAM or whatever they invent next season in it's place for him. That's his level now.

    Exactly go get a real winger with DP money if Bradley leaves.

    That wouldn't work anyway because the Saudi club is not going to let him walk for free Ė TFC would need to pay some sort of transfer fee.

    But if he's a TAM player, the fee would have to count against the cap. So there wouldn't be enough space.

    The only way it works is if Bradley leaves, freeing up a DP spot. But then as others have said, why not just go get a younger DP? So this whole discussion is pointless.

    KJ asked Manning about the possibility of Seba coming back. Pretty much kept his cards close to his chest with his reply but he didn’t appear to dismiss the idea either. I’m a little more intrigued now to be honest.

    Seba's contract was expiring. A Saudi team offered him much more money than TFC was willing to pay. He signs with the Saudi team. No one "got rid of him." It's just that TFC thought he would sign with them but didn't count on the Saudi team offering much higher than usual to get Seba.

    It was expiring but had a full season to run followed by an option year IF the club chose to pick it up. When the club chose to NOT pick up Seba's option, even though his original five year contract had a year to run, he took offence and so started looking elsewhere. His Saudi club offered him $11 million per season, tax free plus having to pay TFC a transfer fee of some millions (official undisclosed).

    In the end, it came down to TFC expecting that he would play out his fifth year but as he got a better offer, the transfer was engineered ..... and up to now, now replacement attacker has arrived in town and the club is in big trouble!

    It is obvious that this could be a real story. There is a long distance from here to there (agreeing on a salary, allocation order, Bradley)... but it is credible that something could be up.

    The trainer story, Seba being benched in Saudi, him spending a lot of time in TO, him spending time at TFC and Raps games, hints in IG stories, a whole bunch of twitter stuff, some of it involving TFC players....

    any one of these you can knock down, but all together, they are a pattern...

    There is no fire here to create smoke.

    Seba leaves when TFC didn't want him to go.

    He comes back to the neighbourhood because his family is currently here.

    Old boss says "How's it going?"

    Seba says "OK - pays well"

    End of story.

    This thing only gets revisited because a lot of TFC fans havn't let him go.

    Interesting take from someone on Twitter....

    Hearing from sources within TFC that Giovinco will be signing back with TFC during this transfer window. Once I hear more I will follow up #TFCLive #TFC

    Thatís not really the case. We know he poured his heart out to Dunfield in a Yorkville coffee shop. I think thereís definitely enough smoke to suggest heís not content with his current situation and heís having second thoughts.

    Some dude from the TFC round table podcast (never heard of it) is now saying on twitter heís coming back this window based on a TFC insider (apparently someone who helped settle him when he first arrived). Donít believe it myself but wouldnít be completely shocked if they find some arrangement.

    Would need to be a significant pay cut from his current wages and I can see Al-Hilal being dissapointed at paying all that cash for weak production ... so I'm sure they'd let him out of his deal if he really pressed.

    Perhaps an Ibra-like deal? TAM for rest of this season then DP next season (which would likely mean a Bradley exit)

    I still don't put much stock into these rumours but heck .. one never knows.

    The whole Seba argument hinges on two things: 1) people feeling upset by the way he left or not, and 2) people who feel that you could spend whatever the FO were to spend on Seba to bring in someone who isnít Seba.

    The people in 1) are understandable.

    Those on either side of 2) are at least positive thinkers: those thinking Seba fits into the team and will perform well; or, those thinking the FO is capable of finding someone better than Seba by the end of the window.

    Bradley going down to TAM or leaving is a once every 3 years opportunity to add in a DP - wanting to spend that on an 32 year old guy who HAS to play in a 2 person forward line is a choice that isn't just a simple yes to for many of us.

    Itís just paraphrasing a tweet or whatever from last week that essentially says the same thing. Pretty sure it was posted here as well, but with all the deleted and moved posts maybe it disappeared.

    Canít be arsed to search Twitter on my phone though...

    It was from the COYR podcast with Wheeler. A few episodes back but Iím unsure which one exactly. Basically said he randomly ran into Seba at a coffee shop and went to briefly say hi but Seba ended up talking his ear off about stuff.
