    Lacazette and Pozuelo would destroy MLS.

    Lacazette does seem like the ideal candidate to come to MLS.

    Our Goal differential was -27, thats a lot of ground to cover. I would like to hear about a TAM defender or new proven goalie in tandem with these great DP aspirations... sounds a lot like deja vu all over again.

    Translation - Fire Curtis.... maybe Manning is waiting to see if we win CCL so his friend can hold a trophy and then fire him.. I would forgive Manning if that is what he is waiting for but in no real sports world should Curtis survive.

    He made $12.6M for each of the last four seasons, so he'd have to take a serious paycut. But he is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season and 31. His agent may have already told him to expect a decline in pay, but is almost certainly going to look for smaller Prem clubs that can pay more than us first.

    So on Instagram, Gio was in Monaco and met up with his agent who is based there. It looks like Gio is now flying to the Maldives. His agent posted a story from a plane. Based on the route it looks like the agent is flying in to Toronto.

    Well Borre was a realistic target up until the point it was clear his head was too big to ever play in MLS and he only wanted Europe.

    Now that said, we either chased too long or allowed our name to be floated in the market once too often.

    Eventually you have to deny a rumour or two. Floating your name all the time isn’t as “free” as it seems at first glance

    Give him Mullins' last contract and be done with it.

    He can have Gallardo's even. I got a bad feeling he is getting a max TAM deal though if he does come.

    Curtis's covid excuses don't hold any weight when you consider Montreal and Vancouver were both in the same boat and Vancouver made the playoffs, Montreal barely missed and we weren't even close

    Outrageous. “We take full responsibility for that and it’s important that we do”. NO YOU DO NOT YOU BLAME THE PANDEMIC.

    And what does this mean?

    “There’s been time spent on the profile of coach to help lead the team next year and beyond,” Curtis said. “There’s an understanding of the profile [we want], but the execution of that will happen once the season concludes.”

    That is complete corporate bafflegab. Is this what Tottenham, Newcastle and Aston Villa did last week when they fired and then hired managers within a couple of days?

    “Profile of the coach?” Come on.

    How about “we got the balance of the team wrong. There were signs our defence was declining but we thought it was only Covid. We were wrong. Although Pozuelo, Soteldo amd Jozy give us formidable attacking options, it didn’t quite work. It’s pretty clear that we needed to start by shoring up the defence. And we got the coach wrong - I have every respect for Chris Armas, but I should have realized his style didn’t fit the club, given our roster, and I should have intervened much sooner to sort out the Jozy Altidore situation.”

    Load of nonsense. Here is my violin to all of his excuses.



    I think we have to come to the realization that the MLSE board is asleep at the wheel regarding TFC. They care more about the Leafs and Raptors brand values post pandemic.

    From that article it sounds like he is going to be given a chance for next year, and I predict a total disaster. I can even see them keeping Jozy based on his year end form.

    Look at the bright side, it only took him one week to make excuses once the season ended, where it normally takes him 2 weeks to do anything.

    All good. That is what we can call Gio if he is bad out there.

    Ali Curtis is back = our roster is fucked for next season. Jesus Christ.

    You have to have a special combination of big balls and stupidity to say the shit he said in that interview.

    I saw the profile: ≠ Chris Armas

    Lazio paper today quotes an "expert" saying the offer from TFC is "rich" and suggests Napoli and Inter are on the outside.

    They could sign Insigne and the rest of the Italian national team, but it still won't change that Ali Curtis and Bill Manning are dangerously incompetent.
