    But among the best at preventing leaks. Long gone are the loose lipped, roller skate inducing leaks from days gone by.

    Virgil got Liverpool to the UCL finals but Allison and fabinho took them over the top 😉. But fan of all of them.

    But we liked the roller skates.

    I did too as now the signings are kind of anti-climatic. By the time we hear anything, boom, it's announced. Minimal time for conjecture or speculation.

    ^There are a lot of these sort of intellectual takes that say "now that we have spent and won championships, and become a big club, TFC players are in the shop window".

    It's a total misdiagnosis.

    Davies was in Vancouver. Adams was NYRB. Aaronson in Philly. Reynolds and Cannon in Dallas. On and on.

    Not one of these guys transferring out is from TFC, Seattle, Atlanta, LAG... the fact is, we don't give the playing time to young guys, so they have no chance of attracting attention, so they don't sign here.

    Success in the league competitively comes from spending. Success in this league financially comes from developing and playing players. No point getting confused about this. I don't want to be a club focused on selling players, sorry.

    I'd suggest VCWC developing Davies is a stretch - they found him in their catchment area and were smart enough to sign him. NYRB, Philly & Dallas play their yutes - VCWC don't have that much cohesive thought or identity.

    TFC, competitively or financially sound, still have to deal Jozy (maybe even Gonzales) and replace him (them) with younger, but developed players.
    Aren't the two weeks over already?

    This is exactly true. This team has been one of the best in the league on the whole since 2016. How many players have we sold to teams that aren’t in Asian oil country? How many rumours have we heard? Oso for a summer, the occasional Jozy bullshit, and now Ayo is all that comes to mind.

    (I still think playing in Toronto doesn’t help players get attention however. How we’ve not got a multi-million dollar Laryea bid is beyond me tbh.)

    Agreed. I was pro youth development but Iíve changed my tune. Who is consistently developing players good enough to be sold for big $ and winning titles in this league? Nobody.

    Congrats to RBNY and FCD on being good talent factories. Their MLS Cup trophy case is empty.

    Isnít it harder for European and English teams to sign Canadians because Canada is rated so low by FIFA?

    How do we know TFC haven't got a bid for laryea? Or he doesn't want to leave at the moment.

    Hard to say for sure but my bet is if you give that guy a sniff at a better opportunity he will jump on it.

    After being thrown in the bin by Orlando and nearly having his career destroyed to signing a minimal deal with TFC and working his way up... I doubt he is too sentimental. Heís also 26. This is prime-time to get a good contract.

    Wouldnít blame him at the end of the day.

    Smart TFC would let him go in the summer, not now. Probably get more money.

    This is absolutely the worst off-season ever.

    I feel like our cap situation must be dead tight after the DP money.

    I never expected much this offseason. We have 28 players under contract (including Rocco Romeo who is on loan until June 30). We can have up to 31 contracts (provided 1 is on loan for the full season). So we had limited space without even considering the cap situation.


    Last year we had 32, but we did the full season loan with Romeo and I believe we used the Season Ending Injury replacement rule to sign Priso (to replace Achara)

    Well 2020 was absolutely the worst season ever, and not because of the football. It seems as if life now is just about waiting for a vaccine.

    Fair enough. But we need a mobile CB to replace Cimanís role and a striker (or a fit and healthy Jozy). We might need to lose a midfielder or two to make the roster work.

    Sure, but every other team is doing something. We've done literally nothing other than downgrade our coach.

    I heard he checks transfermarket.com for ideas once a week.
