    Didn't Bradley play CB 2 years ago when Moor was out? Right now we lack depth in that role

    Nope.

    But I think thatís the last we see of Jozy on this club. For me, thatís really too bad and I think we will regret losing an elite striker with his skills - but this will be the last straw.

    Interesting stat for Kristian Jack. Jozy has played in only 44% of TFC's 20 games this year. A total of 1830 minutes of play and Jozy only played 806 minutes. Let that sink in. Someone earlier told me they were not in the mood for an argument about his playing this year. I can see why now.

    Wait can you hear it coming from Jozy. Our training staff is shit!!

    Bradley is head and shoulders a better player than Marky and Oso (my favourite player on the club). When healthy, he plays. But Jozy just let his lack of fitness end his TFC career. This is the end. And he is my wifeís fav.

    My issue with Bradley is he plays a Deep Lying Playmaker position that we don't really need right now. Right now, everybody but the top striker comes back to the ball. We move it better that way.

    All this is because Poz is just so darn good in his roll as that AM.

    Bradley is great, donít get me wrong. His ability to cover ground and break up the play is the best in the league in my opinion. But... thereís just something about his presence in midfield that makes the team a little less fluid when we have the ball.

    Osirio and Delgado were brilliant tonight as a double pivot

    He is the second or third best player we have ever had, has scored critical goals at critical moments to win, and is still dominant. I donít get the hate. Iím sad. But I do think this was his last game for us.

    The field in Dallas has American football lines. I don't know why MLS put teams in Texas.

    Fair. But when he is fit, he plays and he leads.

    I love Jozy but I no longer think he & Poz can play together on this team like they were last season. Jozy is trying really hard to get it done as that mobile striker picking up things. And he was effective in that role. But, we play better without him.

    I would like to see him at the right wing with Piatti in his natural left wing spot, once Auro is back.

    Have to be honest, I really enjoyed the past two games. We played up to and better than our competition.

    But, we need to thump a team and I mean demoralize someone. Not to play down to their level ... lets hope it is finally NE when a few of the other guys break out.

    If needs be he will change his role the same way he changed his DP status.

    For example, Lucas Cavallini is a terrific player for Canada and a competent MLS player. But nowhere near Jozy. Like not even making the subs bench

    Piatti is definitely an upgrade. Very fluid and makes the attack much better. He's more of a supporting cast player. If we had a Seba like forward He'd shine even more. He should be a max paid TAM player but not a DP in my opinion.

    Tony had another great cross a few minutes later, unfortunately a TFC player that was not the intended target got in the way.
    Agree! One of the things that frustrated me the most with our fullbacks is their inability to make good crosses. But that whip by Tony was a breath of fresh air!

    I don't dispute that. My point is that l expected more from Piatti given his pedigree and DP status. In reality we are only playing with one true DP calibre player at the moment.

    To what though? The guy has been "THE" play starter since 2014. How's he going to fit into a midfield with Poz at the point where the pivots run around so much & the interchange is constant? Got to fit him in somewhere, but where?

    I hate to say it but Bradley has aged and slows down the midfield. I love the workrate and speed of play from the central midfielders (Osorio, Delgado, Poz).

    Once again I love Jozy because of his love and dedication to this city and club. I really do.

    But 1.5 million dollar pay raise for an injury prone Jozy who's not in the mood to play this year was Manning's worst panic decision. Which may hold us hostage for another year if we can find an interested buyer.

    We are definitely a cocky team. We underestimate and play half ass against weaker teams.

    And rise to our level against proper teams because we like to prove we are better.

    Frustrating at times lol

    Only way is if Bradley chooses to play the same style we are currently playing. He needs to play like Osorio/Delgado have the past 3 games. He needs to go back to his old box to box midfield style and not a deep lying playmaker. If he can't do that than I agree he's be better on the bench.

    No way we are better with MB on the bench. Just no way.

    (Knowing full well he is likely to come into a game & surprise us and we will all go "oh yeah, that's what he can do)

    I think he's a situational player against certain teams that press high & want the ball - like NYC did. At the base of a 4-1-4-1 where he slides over to where an onrushing FB left from, he'd be OK. A slower version of what Osorio played against NYC.

    But against a team like Philly or DCU or CBus, he'd be a second half sub for me.
