    The best part of this will be the speculation over the next month.... at least we have the rest of the core team and shouldn't be in a panic mode like last year.

    Not worried at all. Just trying to be pragmatic based on historical facts. I’m glad that we have deep pockets and getting another DP...period.

    One year he will stay healthy. Remember how injury prone Vince Carter was? All of a sudden he became an Ironman as he got older, so weird.

    MLSE should ask MLS if they can each count as 0.5 DP since together they'll combine for a full season haha.

    202X - Jozy announces retirement
    202Y - Jozy fully healthy for 1 year for first time, since he retired the prior year




    EDIT: I love Jozy despite my two back-to-back Jozy injury diss posts making it seem like I don't.

    Mls website reporting an mls team is offering 6 million transfer to Argentina's Independiente for 25 year old Cecilio Dominguez (also Paraguayan NT)

    Few reasons why this could be us:
    -plays primarily as left winger and striker
    - we have first hand experience with him as we played against him in CCL when he was playing for Club America
    -currently plays for same club that we were heavily scouting when we were trying to acquire Jonathan Menendez

    Looks like a fit for us on several levels.

    Could be the one young guy we went to visit in South America recently. Timing is fitting.

    Good find. I don't see what makes him any better than Janson though.

    You sure about that?

    0.13 goals per game in Argentina. (Janson is 0.15 goals per game and the same age)
    0.25 goals per game in Liga MX.

    Not eye popping numbers at all. He's 25 with some room to grow but those are not great numbers and fans of Independinte think he sucks

    Good find, and match. I agree with comments above. Would be a very underwhelming signing.

    FYI, he’s following Portland. And Portland love their South Americans.

    Mandzukic? Would hit the Croatian population well - since we do a Croatian night every year at BMO...just a thought.

    Yeah not exactly a guy with a track record of putting the ball in the back of the net.

    Doesn't seem to be anyone that fits what they were saying on either starting team - too young or different skills - although the guy playing number 10 for Rennes (number 8) looks a player, just more of a Poz type player than a scorer. Must be a sub. maybe Hunou on Rennes?

    I think there's a younger player on Rennes that holds an American passport, maybe a loan?

    EDIT: Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu, let's just call him TJ..

    My bet is they are looking at Maxwel Cornet. Young winger, proven goal scorer, and lots of talent.

    Maybe him or Traore. Similar value. Or they just want a vacation in France 😁

    Only guys that played in that match and fit the Manning description are Cornet and Traoré. Both would be stellar DPs.

    If we're looking at France, a guy I'd love would be Wahbi Kazri, who can play on the wing and has a powerful shot from distance.

    Can't believe there isn't more speculation based on Areathrasher's awesome pic. Everyone on holidays already or something?

    Position, location and price. Both better leagues with better defenders. I'm sure he'd do fine here. Not hyped on him but very much the kind of signing I could see us make

    I dont see how Osorio fits TFC anymore with Poz having to play in the middle as a 10.

    Maybe TFC could trade him for Teibert and a bunch of TAM? That way you get back a Canadian who is a little more defensive and some TAM to maybe sign Benezet?

    Perhaps they were hoping to get a look at Jordan Siebatcheu from Rennes. Born in Washington and has been used mainly as a substitute. Not sure if he can play on the wing, but he looks like quite an athlete.

    Niang seems to be enjoying himself there, too. Fits the profile a little more, but he's on loan, which adds more obstacles.

    On the one hand I want guys like Osorio at the club and the other I want them starting. Rationally, I agree that he doesn't fit. But I don't want him to go.

    If I remember correctly, you’ve never been his biggest fan. He’s developed and is on a skill level with our DPs and TAM players. In that context, he will have a role. One of our most important players.

    No I'm an Osorio fan. Just think it might be best for him to go be a full-time starter and TFC could use the money on another position.
