    looks like he got bored with curtis and the 2 wk long boring interview
    Maybe Curtis showed Blanc his 200-page master plan.

    Laurent Blanc had been out of work since 2016. I don't think we necessarily needed to be rushing to get him in fear other teams would sign him first. They had four years to sign him before we came along and interviewed him.

    Also, if Blanc was truly on the table quite frankly the play would be to fire Ali and give him whatever control he needs (this also assumes control was a talking point).
    It is likely relevant that Qatar is hosting the world cup in 2022. Creates interesting possibilities for a high profile European manager.

    Suspect Vanney's TFC contract is through year end, which is why nothing was announced when Vanney left.

    Suspect timing of this coming out now relates to MLS free agency.

    Suspect Morrow is going to LAG.

    I want a blockbuster deal where TFC trades Eriq Zavaleta to LAG.

    This forum is very quiet. Does anyone know of any rumours of new potential signings?

    Laurent Blanc was always a rumour signing. So no surprise it didn't pan out.

    I'm not against Manning and Curtis wanting to be in control of signings. The last thing you want is for a manager to come in and dismantle the team only to leave 5 months later (see Preki example).

    I get it, managers want control over the players coming in - but this model will be the norm in the the future.
    The only managers who will be given this type of over-reaching control will be the cream of the crop. The Klopp/Pep type managers. The ones who know how to manager the football club from top to bottom - not just the first team. There are very few managers that can do this.

    I agree that Blanc was never going to come here. I don't know what Vanney was making, but Blanc would probably be expecting a salary that was probably at least double or more than whatever Vanney made, not even to mention the level of control

    I wouldn't expect much in terms of rumors until after the new year.

    With Christmas this Friday , it is bound to be quiet, do we even know when they are planning on having the players back at the facility? We know some of the squad are home overseas.

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

    Player rumor: Pakhtakor's Dostonbek Khamdamov. He is a 24 year old winger who is out of contract as of January 1st.

    Market value of 900,000 Euros is not much. We can do better than this.

    Either that, or he's an underrated steal. You can't really say unless you know the player.

    He wouldn't be a DP or anything. Probably be able to sign him for 250-350k and see what he has in his locker. I am okay with it.

    Already more than enough attempts at bargains on the wing. We need to go big or go home.

    Agreed. Less gambling and rehab projects more sure bets.

    Replace Gallardo with this guy and I am good. He will be cheap and it's worth taking a shot at that rate and hopefully it will at least boost the bench depth (unlike Gallardo).

    I’m fine with that. As long as this isn’t supposed to be the answer out wide.

    It’s clear we need a DP quality player up top. If Altidore isn’t getting bought out, my expectation is we sign someone.

    This is who I thought we were going to land before they announced Piatti. Would be a great signing, Betis have been struggling lately and it wouldn't surprise me if he's looking to move on
