    Can't tell much from his 19/20 highlight reel; Polish defending looks very loose. But off the top, very good with the ball at his feet, knows how to find space and be dangerous. There's a good one about halfway through in which he gets a long ball in the air, nods it inside to create space and an angle on his defender, then buries it.

    Just very technically astute, I'd say. However, looks a bit lightweight, might get a bruising in MLS.

    JJ is what this club has needed for a long time. A quality forward who looks equally decent on the wing. This will be a good signing.

    Agreed. A poor man's Antoine Griezmann to hold us over until Antoine gets here.

    (I am convinced Griezmann is an MLS player in the next two seasons)

    I’d be pretty happy with Adekugbe as the new leftback, lol

    Really sour that Montreal has Johnston and Miller. But, honestly I am so happy that all these out of season MLS players showed that playing in Europe does not mean shit. LFG!

    He's played an active entire game and still has the gas to blow by their backline like statues.

    I thought Osorio had a good game ... and I couldn't care less what it takes I'll take Milan Borjan as our goalie any day of the week. His saves have put Canada where we are right now

    Oso and Kaye put in that work. Borjan was superb. I am just overwhelmed. If you told me in 2018 that Canada would be in the 2022 World Cup I would of roared laughing. Maybe TFC should try and sign Ike Ugbo?

    Sorry, Oldtimer! I know you got the hardest job on here. So, I will edit my post to have a TFC flair to it.

    Regarding recent past Borjan rumour to TFC...

    I know there is a difference between in-game play and penalty action but...

    This (Borjan)...

    Its pretty clear that Oso isn't going to Europe - at least the club doesnt think he is - but he sure held his own today. And what a pass! Could you imagine him in the "10" role to free up Poz? I dont quite think so.

    I think Oso plays to the level of the competition. He was our best mid fielder tonight, they were physically running rough shod over us. It will be interesting to rewatch the game tonight but I thought he pushed back really well. In my opinion, far more valuable than Kaye. We just need to give Oso a role and keep his intensity there, no more moving from position to position because he is capable.

    Agreed. I’m sure that stability in terms of his position came into discussion in the end of season meetings when he was considering Europe.

    Really like the JJ rumour. A CF that starts every game and can start the season with us is great.

    Oso plays his best in the heart of the midfield. If anyone is gonna take Delgado's place as our number 8, it needs to be Osorio. Priso should be taking Bradley's minutes, but that whole situation needs to be resolved.

    We’ll all be criticizing the keeping by game 5. I guarantee it.

    Areas the club has yet to be honest about addressing: Bradley playing time, Keeping shitshow at the fuckfactory (pls get the reference lol), and Mavinga spending last season asleep at the wheel

    We'll be mad at the keeping game one when Bono gets the start. Again.

    We will likely get the official announcement a day or two after Soteldo finishes up with Venezuela Tuesday evening.

    As long as the papers are filed today they can delay the announcement for however long they want.

    Not much there, just some background on the move, but it does say he's flown here, suggesting the deal is done.

    I like that he's known as a fan favourite. Good chance then that he's a character guy, and goodness knows we need those.

    Has anyone caught wind of how Giovinco performed against the Galaxy?

    Here's a very grainy video of Jimenez highlights from a few years ago. Sometimes hard to tell which player he was, but seems like an aggressive forward who knows how to score.
