DeRo said to reporters about it "what would you do if the New York Times approached you?" They should have let him have his shot. He could have been highly effective. Motivated, fit, skilled.
    That was egregious. The worst part was that DeRo DID ask TFC, it came out later, and they literally ducked him. So he just went. I don't blame him, frankly.

    This. Apparently River also said to their supporters that they would know in two weeks...

    I imagine it'll be down to personality whether we still have him next year. Euro clubs see an eighteen year old with all the tools already and that kind of poise... I mean, I'm sure they're already scouting him. It might've been why he made that comment about wanting to go sooner.

    You have a point. Lets see how he does. Good for him and Canada, less so for TFC. I feel better about him than Jahkeele. Not sure why but over hype always worries me. Ruins players; Alphonso is the exception

    Probably meaningless Borré update: Jozy has been liking some of Borré's posts on Instagram and recently started following him.

    I highly doubt that's meaningless. I wonder if he had a trip up to TO already for a look around. They like to sell the facilities, which are top notch.

    If there was a video sent to Borre, Jozy & Poz would both be on it.

    Interesting point - Armas is Peurto Rican - wonder if he speaks Spanish.

    Oh good points dude. Jozy DOES speak Spanish, and Poz would be the guy they'd use to sell the place.

    We have a club that would definitely appeal to a Spanish speaking player. Never really thought of that. Delgado and Gonzalez both also speak Spanish. TAM winger probably too.

    Well someone's got to start marketing this club because it sure as shit ain't TFC at the moment. Marketing got their heads in the sand.

    Or he’s actually on board and trying to repair his relationship w the front office. Reaching out to Borré and the text to Armas could be the beginning of a pattern.

    Jozy must be all in on TFC and Borré, he started following him on Twitter too. These are things you love to see. Now we just need Borré to follow back...

    Damn. Knowing two languages is impressive enough. Knowing and being fluent in five is ridiculous.

    Doubt it. With 14 day quarantine, that would've been in the news if he disappeared From South America for 14 days.
