    Morrow Im on the fence. We saw how painful it was to bring in a new RB. Do we upset the left side? Is it too late to bring back Edwards on minimal dollars?
    I think I agree on Ciman. He scares the hell out of me sometimes but continuity on the backline is important. I don't love his cap hit but if we get rid of Zavaleta and Moor as we probably should that frees up a good amount.

    I think Morrow should stay. He's 32, I think he has one more starting quality season in him. We just need a backup LB that can still help us, like Laryea did on the right this year. I would love if we could bring Edwards back.

    Agree on Benezet as I've said. Disagree on Gallardo, he hasn't even played 3 games worth of minutes. I haven't loved what I've seen from him or anything but given his relatively low salary I'm fine with giving him a chance to show more next season. Plus, we're thin on the wing anyways.

    Agree with others on Chapman, probably time for him to move on. He could be an MVP candidate in the CPL.

    Bradley DP (year 1) to TAM (year 2+)
    Cavalini Loan (year 1) Buy year 2 (DP.)

    DM: Bradley, Delgado, Fraser

    Best 11:

    Willian ------- Cavalini ----- Deleon
    ---------- Pozuelo ----- Osorio
    ----------------- Bradley

    I'm fine with keeping Gallardo another year - from what I recall he was always intended to be a bit of a project - and he did make a really good impact off the bench that one game (Colorado I think) when he set up Osorio's winner. There's some talent there and there's also speed, something we have very little of. Having said that he's already 23, I can understand needing some time to get comfy with a new league/country but if he isn't a starter late next year we should move on for 2021 and beyond.

    Even if he is a flop though I'm not overly concerned since we made it to a final with Endoh and DeLeon, and we can do it again (and win) as long as at least one of Jozy and the DP winger or backup forward plays too

    that's far from being confirmed, if ever. His club are pushing this, as they want a Jan transfer fee as opposed to nothing come the summer, so they are trying to generate interest. Could happen I guess, I just don't see it myself. He may well move to a PL club in Jan but I don't see it being Liverpool.

    TFC do appear to be keeping faith in recent attacking acquisition Erickson Gallardo, with GM Ali Curtis telling the Toronto Sun that the Venezuelan winger remains in the club’s plans despite him not appearing in the postseason.
    So Gallardo isn't going anywhere. He's a project.

    The team is looking for adding another attacking player, pretty obvious need.

    You wont get Cavallini for anything less than full purchase. Thats his market right now. I like him but not sure if we play best with a target man up top. Id like someone who is versatile enough to hold the ball up a bit but is fast and can get onto balls in behind. Like a Gilberto, but better.

    I dont care if we keep Gallardo but first impressions are hes underwhelming (playing time or not).

    Cavallini is good but pointless unless we have no Jozy. We need a forward with a good amount of versatility. Someone with two good feet and capable of playing all 3 forward positions would be best. Decent speed would be a big bonus because that's something that needs to be addressed.

    Vanney seems to place a lot of faith in Gallardo, and one thing that he pointed out at the End of Season Press Conference was he became a father for the first time. Just getting used to a new country with a new culture and new language alone is a hell of a transition, now becoming a father with sleepless nights. It goes to say that Gallardo never really had a chance to fully transition this year and by the time of the playoffs, an opportunity never opened up where he can use his traits to influence a game as a sub.

    I'll be looking out to see Gallardo next year.

    Does Jay's homegrown status make him a domestic player for Miami, thats they only way I could see them taking him?

    New CBA will probably class Canadians as domestics on American teams. I have heard the CSA lobbying for this and it makes sense.

    Also, I think we're becoming the masters of fleecing teams for allocation $$$. We haven't been on the wrong end of that type of deal in a long time.

    It is more like congestion. He has to play inside and not on the wing - so behind Oso and Poz (who are really battling for one spot) and Benezet really too. If we played 4-4-2 he would get more minutes. Needs to grow. Good for the club in helping him get an opportunity to grow.

    A big hit to TFC's instagram presence, but a good move. Expansion team should give Chapman a better shot at minutes. He didn't really have a role here anymore.

    Chapman was an important depth player, especially in 2017.

    Late in the game in Guadalajara, he subbed in and made to play to Hamilton deep that was almost a real chance.

    He deserves a chance to start somewhere.

    Miami? The Instagram sponsorship opportunities are endless.

    Interesting that this happened in front of the expansion draft. Chapman was a guy we were likely to expose.

    EDIT: Whoops. I see that homegrowns under 25 are automatically protected. Now I understand.

    Not a surprise, he's plateaued the last couple of years. Really hope he gets ample minutes in 2020

    That last MLS game Chapman played was July 20 against Houston. His last full 90-minute game was against Atlanta on May 8.

    He played 522 minutes this year. Hopefully, he gets to play some more in Miami.

    I seem to recall him being really well-liked by his teammates and the biggest joker on the team. He seems like a good guy, so best of luck to him.
