    Another nugget that could’ve fit in this notebook: #TFC goalkeeper Alex Bono is training at Barnsley for the next 10 days, per source. Several MLS clubs interested in Bono, who played just 7 games last season, should Toronto look to move him.
    I always believe Bono needs to go to Europe to learn how to be a goalkeeper. He’s not going to learn to distribute better or read the attack better in MLS.

    Of course, I didn’t mean that in a negative way at all. When we were discussing it when Agudelo was picked I got the impression you weren’t buying that argument, which is totally fair.

    You are 100% right. We just disagree. We are all friends here sipping cognac in front of the fire on a winter's night. Cheers.

    Ha I thought it was current. Yeah it’s 2020, I must remember that. Still funny he generated this article.

    I don't speak French, so I couldn't understand Mavinga's recent Instagram story. But I wonder if the BIG thing coming is a new haircut or new hair colour...

    Several MLS clubs interested in Bono, who played just 7 games last season, should Toronto look to move him.”

    This is classic, the grammar construction that always makes me a bit suspicious of who the source is.

    Has Tenorio heard this from several teams/sources, or, as I suspect, has he heard this only from one source?

    My guess: Bono is in the shop window, and was put there either by TFC or his agent.

    I would guess both. I agree.. when I saw the original report I was immediately thinking: this is an advertisement to the rest of the league. He's available and they are trying to spin that he's got an international profile so TFC doesn't have to pay to have him go away. From his perspective you can totally understand this too. He's relatively young and only a few seasons removed from winning trophies. He can't spend another season behind Westburg... which is exsctly what will happen with TFC. If there is any opportunity elsewhere he should be seeking it.

    I’d like to see us loan him to Barnsley for the rest of their season. Sign Carducci...re-asses in the euro transfer season. Injury ...bring him back..if not...sell him in the summer. North American keepers are every bit as good as European ones...he will do well there.

    Tenorio is credible.

    Oh I know that, I am sure the source(s) is/are legit.

    He is just making it sound like this comes from “multiple clubs” when it most likely came from one club.

    Another brilliant youth decision. Jesus Christ. The way we're going we're going, we'll wind up having cut the entire Canadian Nats by 2022.

    ^To be fair, this is different than Kaye though, no? Doesn’t every academy have stories about 13 year olds they cut, that went on to prove them wrong?

    Let’s see how he pans out. At face value, sounds a lot like Tajon Buchanan, who had a good year a Syracuse but didn’t do anything of note in MLS last year (he is still 20 though, I’ll give him that).

    I find it somewhat hilarious that being chippy is becoming a bit of a hallmark of many Canadian players (Kaye and Laryea to name a couple). It’s a good change from the prior generations who laid down and died too easily.

    So if TFC never cut him, he would've been Homegrown eligible right?

    Cut before he reached his mid teens - probably 6 years ago.

    The academy back then was crud so its best for him that he was out of it.

    Like when some of the kids bolted for the Whitecaps academy or Kevin Aleman heading overseas. This is a little different since he was cut loose at a much younger age,

    Transfer Rounours Bot....is saying we are making a bid for Alvaro Morata...currently on loan to Athletico from Chelsea. That will be a killer partnership with Poz!

    Transfer Market has him pegged at 50 million euros ... so I highly doubt it.

    Unless there's been a change to his contract (which we probably would no know about), his loan expires in 2020, but he is under contract until 2022 (signed a 5 year deal in 2017).
