    The gulf in class here is most noticeable in the crispness of the passing.

    Yep. This is shaping up to be easy work.

    That’s the problem with the “Jozy out” crowd. What he has (when he plays) is very hard to replace - and what he has is what we need. And yes I understand he has been injured. I am making a different point. Soteldo, for example - brilliantly talented but doesn’t have what Jozy has. Not even close.

    @jloome you were right about the gulf in speed and class. Night and day. (They also don’t seem to have selected the wingback who I saw play who was a real threat. )

    Jozy when on his game is one of the best forwards in this league.

    when doesn't happen enough

    Shaff has an x factor - he's really good at finding spaces & for a guy at this level, his finishing is good.

    Jozy wants a call up to the USMNT. And if he’s healthy he deserves it. They don’t have anyone else like him.

    What the hell has Wheeler done to his facial hair? He looks terrifying.

    Pretty sure Jozy is done getting USMNT call ups. Atleast for WC Qualifiers. Maybe he gets a final nod in December for the friendly they just booked. Plus Twitter would blow up since he isn't under 20 or playing in the Austrian 4th division.

    Replaceable if they look for a specific type of #9 and offer the money they gave him when he first signed. Hard to replace with fringe MLSers like Dwyer & Mullins though. Also the Soteldo comparison isn't fair as it's a winger from a 3rd tier league vs a CF who played in 1st & 2nd tier leagues.

    Look like Morrow is going to get a few games in his swan song - that Auro injury looked like a few months.

    Jozy is now a cherry picker / finisher now and he can score, put some attacking pace (additional striker, or maybe Shaff now) around him and a attacking midfielder opponents have to respect and he will find space. TBH i like Soteldo more in the middle but you have Poz. Don’t expect Jozy to outrun people like he did in 2017 but he still is valuable and it is unconscionable what Ali and Armas did to him. 7 games… did he kill someone? ‘nuff said.

    Fair enough. Just making the point that it is very hard to get that particular talent and what a difference it makes when you have it.

    I saw Pacific FC v Edmonton and Dada-Luke dominated the game. Destroyed them and created the room for Bustos and Aparico to score. Very surprised he didn’t start today. TFC needs to be careful about him.

    I threw a comment under that tweet. Trolling USMNT twitter has become so fun and easy.

    Dunfield just made a great point - Shaff has flourished under Perez. So has Okello

    I agree. but neither is Osorio, he seems useless and gives up too easily.

    Poz is having one of his worse games as a red. He looks like he has checked out

    I got the sense from his comments on coming back that he had a major family crisis of some kind back in Spain. His mind might not really be on football right now.

    Sloppy second half - going to give up a goal I suspect & then it will be squeeky bum time.

    Definitely the biggest disappointment of this season. Here is hoping this is just a blip on the radar for him.

    As much as winning these games against CPL teams is important to demonstrating that we aren’t entirely garbage, these last two games have seen an absolutely incredible number of opportunities missed in front of goal.
