    It’s safe to say this off-season has been a complete housecleaning. Can’t think of a time when this many players have exited. Could be good or bad thing I suppose. Good because everyone left standing gets a clean slate but maybe bad as it’s hard to gel as a team with 7 guys at camp trying to run drills with a bunch of Twitter rumors for teammates.

    He probably just posted the coffee shop today, but wasn't actually there today and was there a couple days ago. I mean, he showed a picture of his shoes and they look a little too clean to have been there today with all the snow

    He was at a coffee shop owned by Ash Morgan. Oso Bono and Shaff have all posted from there last few days.Seems like they were all checking in to offer support and I'd wager Morgan may be retired.

    I don't remember seeing this before. I know Ayo was out at the beginning of the season and it was speculated it was perhaps COVID related. Some confirmation here. Glad he was able to get past it.

    Yeah, we all suspected it, but it was never confirmed. Now I just wonder how long it'll take him to come back from the ACL.

    That's a slow starting midfield, and probabaly about 2 years (on average) too old.

    The Stalteri thing is interesting. Delicious for those of us who have been around for a while and have long memories.

    He doesn’t obviously have credentials for the job -I assume he didn’t get this because he was Jim Brennan's assistant. Maybe it's his work as part of the CMNT coaching group… what the CMNT defenders have done is amazing the last 12 months.

    Stalts played with MB in Germany at Borussia Monchengladbach for two years. Rob Friend was on that team too. Stalts has probably remained close to MB during the last few years… how many of MB's ex teammates from Europe living in the GTA can there be!

    While we are connecting dots, Friend runs Pacific FC, who supposedly just sold us… a defender!

    I wonder if Stalts is also kind of a bridge for Insigne, to help with language etc (I believe Stalteri speaks Italian). I believe one lesson learned from the Giovinco era is that there was a lot of separation, Gio very quickly had an entourage around him. Of course Gio and Insigne are different people, but nobody ever got the idea that Gio was paying rapt attention to Vanney or Fraser. Stalts, having started for a Bundesliga champion in Bremen, and seen a lot of Champions League games too, would have a kind of specific gravitas with Insigne… his team beat Bayern Munich in Munich to win the title. That is something Insigne could identify with.

    I love it because I loved Stalts as a player - what a tough cookie! I doubt there will be any passengers in practice with Paul Stalteri anywhere nearby. I wouldn’t have obviously pegged him as a coach, but if Gattuso can do it…

    If you weren’t around for Paul in his prime… every time I see the Roy Kent character on Ted Lasso, I think of Paul Stalteri. That's who he was, on the playing field anyway.

    I would be happy to have MAK back, if in fact this is what we're looking to do. BUT I wouldn't be so happy parting with $1M+ in allocation to welcome back a homegrown player.

    We have QUITE a bit of funny money remaining - I think this is quite a bit but we have money to use and probably should.

    I'd hope some rumors on incomings ramp up.

    One of the biggest transfers that set us on the course of winning the MLS Cup were Justin Morrow and Steven Beitashour. I’d like to see something like that within the league. I don’t know who because I haven’t been following the rest of MLS that closely over the pandemic period but we need a few of those MLSers that aren’t sexy signings but solid players in the league.

    To the tune of the Addams Family:

    Canadian and scary
    He's also very hairy
    His name is Paul Stalteri
    He scored against West Ham
    de de de de (clap clap)


    Spurs goal of the year in 2007:

    There's quite the physical resemblance between the two.

    Worst ever call on a goal. I understand the circumstances regarding Curbishly at the time, but still ... what disrespect to Stalteri.

    Well, what the hell, let’s do it. You want to do something big and CMNT related in 2022, this is the move. I’d take him over Belotti, and he would cost a lot less.

    We keep doing stuff for the Italian community, and never do anything for the Portuguese. Eustaquio would be a massive two-fer for both CMNT fans and Portuguese-Canadians.
    He just arrived at Porto. A loan with option to buy.

    If you're having frequent dreams about Teibert you might want to consult a medical professional...

    Pre-season games announced so far are Austin on Feb 9 in Austin, Chicago feb 12 in Austin. FC Dallas is also playing those two clubs around the same dates, so we may also have a friendly against them before Feb. 26 kickoff.

    Staying in Texas for most of Feb it seems?

    Cavallini would be great, no need to disrespect a locally born player that has proved himself in a league that consistently whips us in internationally.

    ensco... fantastic on Stalteri... Football Is Life! If Gattuso can... anyone can.
    Not the first MB connects this season... very interesting... inputting... transition toe dipping?
    One more acquaintance might arrive to live in TO at the end of SerieA season.
    Ahhh... memories... Zamora... the inter-connectivity of football life... Defoe and Stalteri.

    Let’s see how he plays this year. Supposedly has showed up in great shape. But let’s not sugarcoat it, he’s not been good in Vancouver and has a contract that’s inflated.

    I would say the primary nightmare piece is his salary hit. Otherwise, I’d take a flyer on him at mid level TAM money.
