    If we manage to get tickets, how do we use our credits for beer?

    He said himself he is a few weeks away from match fitness so likely a sub to get some minutes I would say to build fitness. Highly doubt he would start.

    Mullinho starts. Jozy comes on around 60 minute mark. Just say no to Dwyer.

    I guess Osorio, Akinola, Laryea and Lawrence are all still gone? Scary.

    I don't think Jozy is good for more than 10 - 20 minutes.

    Have we ever developed a legit CB, Zavs' flatlining at TFC seems more a failure of the club than the player

    Let's be fair: he was considered league-wide to be a borderline prospect, because he played two positions in college.

    Seattle signed him as a GA to be a defender but he was already 20 at that point, and had been a striker for four of the six prior years.

    So basically by the time he reached MLS he had a handful of games as a defender. He was drafted for athleticism and versatility and the media discussed him beign retrained as either a holding midfielder or defender.

    Keep in mind, in 2013 the MLS 1.0 mentality of players being positional puzzle pieces rather than established in recognized strengths was very much in play.

    They loaned him to Chivas for a year and Chivas threw a wrench in that by playing him, unsuccessfully, up top. Then Bobby Burling, their best defender, blew his knee out and he spent a dozen games playing defence.

    He went down to USL for a loan, went back to Seattle. By the time we got him, he was 22 and had a grand total of 17 professional starts at defence.

    So he was well past prime development period, into the adjustment age where they're supposed to be moving to late twenties peak performance, and instead he was still learning the role.

    We put him next to Drew Moor which sounds brilliant... if the player is smart enough to learn enough from it to fly on their own. If not, a line leader just makes them look better than they are by directing them whenever a marginal decision is in play or they may have missed a break in coverage or zone.

    So he was never prepared to play central defence at this level. He's a natural athlete but not particularly fast, in a league where forwards are often very fast. I don't think he has a potential upside anymore, at 28. He's already peaked, probably in the championship year when he was 24.

    If he was going to get better there would be consistent signs. That's what Osorio and others have demonstrated. Oso had the technical skill, then he had the read of the faster game, then he added the finishing, then he bulked up, right at the point where it looked like he might flame out for not being athletic enough, and showed he had a third gear. But he was no certainty to make it.

    They're roughly the same age (Oso's a year older) and came into MLS during the same year, 2013, but look at the trajectory.

    And yet, somehow, Zavs at the NT level is succeeding against non fast players.

    What this shows me is we are desperate for a real back line general.

    I was just curious and wanting to refresh my memory on Osorio's development(had couple years in Uruguay).

    Anyways my mind was blown when I saw he has played 218 games for us. WOW. He is only 29 as well. Then I compared it to Zaveleta who has only 138 games total professionally.

    Hopefully the next phase of Osorio development is learning from Poz to build that football IQ, he has lots of years left in him for us.

    FOR THOSE GOING - there is a new bridge in the area to get into Liberty Village

    https://www.blogto.com/real-estate-t...ing-next-week/



    Bonus - youtube video of where the bridge is with a walk over




    Been rightly pointed out that this does not help deal with the Covid cave under the GO Tracks.

    dumb question - where are people even going to be for this game pre-match? I kind of want to take my friend to the full TFC Experience.

    That's on the north side, opposite end from the Go tunnel.

    Iím really happy about that bridge opening, and itís especially good for anyone living in Liberty Village.

    But itís not at the Ex station, where we deal with the crowded tunnel. In fact this new bridge may funnel more people to that tunnel.

    (Edit: I see I was a bit slow with my post.)

    Odd that Peruzza was recalled unless this is for TFC II. No way he gets minutes over Jozy, Ayo (when he returns) Mullinho or Dwyer.

    I'm very excited to be going to a match after 16+ months!

    To those wondering about the safety, it's not going to get any better than this for me. Second shot a few weeks ago, outside, sparsely populated stadium. If I'm not going to start doing things now then when?

    Perez is a dev specialist. He may well think he has more upside than Mullins or Dwyer. Mullins is a good link up player and defender so I doubt he’d lose time but I can see him getting minutes over Dwyer, and Jozy being out sometimes. If he goes to a two-striker set in particular.
