    Put Gio on any team and they are winning an additional 5-6 game minimum - that's a big deal

    even if he isn't scoring - As mentioned earlier - he has 2-3 guys on him - leaving the rest of the team open to play much more freely. That's a factor you are not considering in your two examples.

    Gio made a difference and would do so on any contending team he's put on.
    The more terrible games I watch of us this season the more I realize what a gem Seba was. He literally single handedly won us games.

    I agree with you and Oldtimer: Seba absolutely was our best player—most consistent, to be sure, even if you could hand around MOTM to a few different players (i.e. Altidore was very, very clutch for us)… but, I don't think just anyone could have gotten it right, tactically; it might have been hard NOT to fare well with that squad, but I'm not sure the results/levels we reached could be achieved with just anyone.

Absolutely
    Not saying it would be impossible to do well or even go all the way with this squad, but I don't think, with how the league has levelled up, that we can come close to being as dominant a force as we were in 2017. If that's our aim, I feel like one of the wingers we signed recently, for example, needed to be able to, as 69Chevy69 so aptly put it, strike fear into the opposition and occupy at least a couple defenders, the way Seba used to.

    Fingers crossed that one of our recent signees can surprise us, but, given their respective starts to life in a TFC shirt, I'm not exactly holding my breath, a few promising flashes notwithstanding.

    The saddest thing is to be boring.
    I feel that too, well expressed! We need something, maybe a new special player to kick start that magic again. I miss those days.

    That's why we all need/ want those new guys to start so badly. Maybe they will give the magic.
    NE and NYFC and MN were great exciting games
