    Don't write Delgado out of the picture just yet. That awful interview he gave was definitely a negotiation tactic to get a raise. You know Vanney will be pushing for him to be brought back.

    Meh, let him play it out.

    Look at the production we got from Osorio in his contract year.

    The Reds have twp goalkeepers signed at TFCII in Americans Kevin Silva and Eric Klenofsky. Both saw action with them last year.
    There was one pool GK last year, Charlie Lyon who was based with the Timbers. He was used as a backup by the Union at one point last year. The last time the Reds utilized a pool GK was in 2012 with Brian Rowe.

    Would a 4-2-3-1 would work? But Ideally we could turn Osorio's 750 k and Gallardo's contract into a productive winger. That money could get us a Katai tier winger... Another player I liked that earned only 650 last year was Hector Villalba

    I think we need to see what Gallardo can do before writing him off. This could be his break out season.

    They said Piatti will be load managed this year, and Altidore is probably going to be as well (or just injured). Gallardo could get 20 games based on just subbing those two alone using this lineup (direct swap with Piatti and triangle rotation of Poz/Oso/Galardo for Altidore - poz up top, oso to middle, gallardo to wing)

    Yeah, expect to hear the words load management a lot.

    Bradley, Pozeulo, Ciman, Mavinga, Gonzalez, Morrow - all going to get games off for that. Our depth is going to be tested, which is why DeLeon & Endoh are going nowhere.

    Our best 11 will take shape in September - until then, its what it takes to win that day given we also have to win next week.

    The only benefit to not being in the CCL is that there won't be up to 8 extra games between now and june

    I got the impression that load management would apply to more than just Piatti. I bet Jozy is going to be doing it or at least should be.

    Don't discount that, it's pretty big. Those games are midweek so greatly affects players rest.

    This team has lots of depth. Osorio/Delgado, Fraser(when Bradley is back), Ciman, laryea, shaffleburg, endoh them you have rookies like Nelson, Achara who could debut.

    I was just watching the goal the Fire scored yesterday. I noticed that's the second time that Bono has been beaten to the near-side post. That should be almost inexcusable at this level for a keeper. Has he lost another step in form? I'm glad we have Q, but I'm getting worried about the quality of the backups.

    MLS schedule almost the whole team needs load management. All the mid week games, plus canadian championship and dont forget TFC is in the other north american tournament.

    This is exactly right. He's not a bad player, but he is best in the same position as Poz (and Victor V). We want Poz in that position!

    Agreed, but Iím not sure when thatís going to be. Looking even at the preseason lineups, heís not getting much burn. Injured perhaps?

    Keepers stopping a near post shot is a myth, as explained by TIFO Football. Too many variance is involved to definitely say that a keeper should be able to stop a near post shot. Not even de Gea or Courtois can stop a well placed shot anywhere. Until we see the goal, I canít really say whether it was a great shot by the scorer or a keeper error (position sense)

    Hard to be sure in that video & at that angle, but that looked weak on Bono's part. Not like it was a rocket to the top near corner which is hard to stop. More of a dribbler, where you think he should have been able to stick out a foot or arm.

    Itís hard to tell what angle the attacker is coming in at as well. If heís got a lot of net to shoot at it becomes incredibly hard to always cover your near post.
    But agreed, looked soft. I think heís in his own head right now more than anything else

    All we can hope is that Bono and the coaches look over the footages to see if they can spot technical mistakes or anything.

    Biggest technical mistake made with Bono is putting him the starting XI.

    Might be. He was a good shot stopper at one point, quite good. he and Zavs made some errors early on in 2018 and neither seems to have recovered.

    very interesting video. thanks for sharing. Bono should have saved this; De Gea that one. Is it overstated about keepers and the near post? Perhaps. But often near post goals are onses they make a mistake on. So Im still in the "shouldnt be beaten by a near post shot" camp . Its just angles.

    Shaff could do well at LB. Definitely something the team should be teaching him in preparation for Morrow leaving/retiring.
