    Absolutely, time to show what he has got.

    Fraser will do a good job for 6 weeks to 3 months. Hopefully he performs so well it's hard to take him out of the 11.

    Fraser is not going to be as good as Bradley - anybody expecting that is setting themselves up for disappointment.

    All he needs to be is an MLS level competent DM.

    I agree , in my mind he just had to be decent, not try to do too much. I do not think anyone would see him stepping in and being The General, that's unrealistic but he does have an opportunity here.

    Well that roundly sucks.

    I think Fraser has potential and now is the right time to get him more action. The team will miss Bradley however.

    Not sure, given Jozy's reaction, although it wouldn't be the first time that Jozy has spoken without knowing the full story.

    Yeah, I saw that afterwards and posted on the Bradley injury thread (didn't want to derail a roster thread to discuss the FO & medical staff)

    Glass half full: Fraser has the chance to step up and show us all why he belongs in the starting XI.

    Vancouver has Didic trialing with them. This would have been a good add for TFC. Shitecaps are making good moves imo so far. Sigh.

    I think this is good...someone needs to speak up and call the FO out.

    I mean, perhaps even more concerning: we resigned a player without doing a medical?

    What if this was something way more serious and long term? We’d be the bag holders here.

    Well they knew all about it, they just thought they could rehab it and avoid surgery. Whether 2 1/2 months was a month or so too late to make that decision is another question though.

    Roster sits at 24, leaving 6 spots to be filled. Hopefully some are before the season opener I hope?

    In other news, a certain winger known to the league is out of contract and not heading back to his team

    I always thought he was good. If he was at or around the old TAM level then I wouldn't mind him at all. Wouldn't want him as a DP though.

    If we're waiting for the summer for a DP, I would totally be interested in getting him.

    Alessandrini? are you serious? big fat no for this one. Best targets I've heard of so far were Bruma and Pedro.

    Oof I totally didn't clarify that I would want him as a non-DP player if possible.

    This was Pozo's striker at Genk. There was some chatter we might be in on him. Obviously not.

    Losing Bradley for 4 months and waiting on a DP until the 7th of July is a very dangerous proposition. At this point you need to assume that Jozy will miss a chunk of games in that time frame too. It seems too much to ask of the likes of Mullins, Endoh, Fraser and Gallardo to help keep the team afloat with two, possibly three huge holes to plug for half the season.

    There's still time to add a player. Vanney seems to want a player asap.

    Auro-omar-mavinga-morrow
    Delgado-fraser-osorio
    Pozuelo-jozy-gallardo

    Still a good team on paper.

    Conspiracy theory - the club leaks out a name of a potential DP tomorrow to get people's minds off the Bradley/Altidore drama.

    I'll settle for Rafael Santos Borré...

    It would appear that one of the DPs for LA Galaxy is Cristian Pavon, is on loan with the team through the 2020 season.

    So in this scenario, they might be ok should the league change the rules come the 2021 season.
