I love Jozy, but for what you are paying him...he is no longer worth it anymore.
    i highly doubt they will make a move by the deadline tomorrow,why would they we have mullins and slowest team in the league.

    The only reason why you don’t make a deal is if you are 100% confident that you will have Jozy back.
    If Ali doesn’t make a deal and Jozy doesn’t play a game… Fire Ali. Or it means MLSE hired another Shapiro type at the helm and that doesn’t work for this team in MLS

    I think the odds are more likely on Jozy not recovering (I really hope I’m wrong, huge Jozy fan).

    Vanney addressed this today.

    Words along the lines of

    you have to give up something to get something & we like what we got right now


    i.e. Don't upset the group right now. Which is why you don't ditch Gallardo out of the training group - you just don't include him.

    Is it entirely impossible for Jordan Perruzza to start now instead of 2021?

    I believe Poz has 2 seasons left on his contract after this season so you want to be able to put together as strong a lineup as possible while he is here. This means getting a quality and durable striker is a must, which rules out Jozy.

    There are a lot of new young players on the roster now. Why not use the next 3 games to test them as well as those players where a decision needs to be made whether to bring them back for next year.

    I wonder if he is actually in Hartford training with the team after his loan with San Antonio ended with their playoff defeat, does anyone know? It would make sense rather than him sitting at home, are the current TFCII guys training up at Downsview?

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    I think it might be because he went on a loan for the year. Julian Dunn went on loan to Valour, came back to TFC and was training with them, but hasn't been on the subs bench once, even with our injury crisis on defense. So, I think their loans technically go until December 31.

    Maybe the league would allow a temporary signing like they have in the past when teams have been severely short-handed?

    We’re not short handed so much as we can’t keep a starting striker fit

    We have:

    Jozy
    Achara
    Ayo
    Mullins

    We are not giving anything up to bring in another striker. We'd be dumb to do that. What would you do with him once the rest of the guys are healthy again?

    Have to disagree we can never count on Jozy because of injury concerns and Achara wont play this year and has only 5 game experience in MLS. Mullins should not even be on our roster so that just leaves Ayo who has also been dealing with injuries all year. If we want to get to the finals again this year and not have players playing out of there natural position then we need to do something before tomorrow deadline for more depth up top.

    Go and get Hurtado or another depth striker via trade now....

    I wouldn't want to give up any of our young assets just for the Cup run this season by doing some kind of panic move due to our current injury situation. That is for sure. But....our striker situation does need attention in the offseason big time. Do you really think we will have fully healthy guys that are all available ever with this list?

    Jozy - Realistically never going to be fully healthy again. Any physio would tell you that his build, injury history and age all go against him and his mentality has been questionable at times in 2020 too.
    Achara - Not MLS proven yet and history of injuries. If he can stay healthy good guy to rotate in but we will see if he can stay healthy for a good stretch of the season before making any call on him.
    Ayo - Looks good when healthy but injury concerns still in 2020. Could be too early to tell if this is an issue as this is the first season he was getting back to back MLS games so maybe just has to learn how to condition himself better to avoid injury.
    Mullins - Doesn't exactly strike fear into any team but is a decent runner but sub only at this point in his career. If he is getting the start we are relying on supporting cast for the goals unless he gets a wonder strike like in Cincy this season.

    We should lose 2 of them anyway to freshen up (Jozy & Mullins). Achara is a mystery but worth seeing how he is when he returns from injury. Ayo for me is still a #2 forward but a good one and one to keep for sure. I wouldn't give up anything besides GAM right now for a new forward but if there were a deal for someone who could be a some kind of threat to score or at least be fast and run at defenders then I'd do it. Someone like Ricketts when we got him back in 2016.

    Can we even sign a player now? I didn't think we could this close to the playoffs.
    If we got a striker before the playoffs - I don't think it would be a trade - I think it would be a signing from outside the league. And you are right - it would be in the calibre range of a Ricketts. So not a starter.

    As for next season - I'm not surprised if Jozy is gone.
    Achara and Ayo will probably be fighting for 2nd and 3rd spots.
    Mullins is Mullins. This will be the level of striker we are looking at right now - Sure - replace him with someone else - but we're probably only going to be able to get another Mullins... or Ricketts.

    So off season reality is - we need a #1 striker. That is what we're looking for. We won't get that before the playoffs.

    Until then - we need Piatti and Poz to drive our offence. We need Oso and Richie to be secondary production. we need the rest of the guys to chip in here and there. Omar is due IMO - the guy has too many unconverted headers so far. He needs to pop in 1 or 2 of those if we wanna win the Finals. bench also needs to score a couple when called upon.
