    No idea. I saw it on his Wikipedia page

    Would be good to have a model on the team again...and not a head case one.

    Very good point Ensco

    When Gallardo arrived, my wife and mother in law, who are Latin Americans, both said “he’s so young, who is going to cook him dinner?”

    Dude! Don't get me started. My daughter had a forever crush on Seba. My wife thought Nicolas Hasler was 'interesting'...
    Her 'Sports Celebrity Free Pass' is Gianluigi Buffon... don't understand it, can't explain it. We do go to games together though.

    The only model I remember was Adrian Cann. Was he a head case? I just don’t remember…

    Not at all, is a very down to earth guy. Had one of the most honest conversations ever with a footballer with him at a pub one night, it was eye opening. Still have the TFC jersey he gave me from his last game with the Reds in 2012.

    Just tuned into the Torino game and Belotti is not in the lineup. The commentator mentioned he will be moved in January with interest from the Milan clubs and his option of joining Insigne in Toronto is a serious consideration.

    I believe. Now that Insigne is real, they can’t be done. When you think it through, putting dollars aside, Insigne alone is not a strategy.

    btw Insigne in the 18 but not the 11 today for Napoli.

    Getting Belotti in for January would be huge.

    Insigne is on the field now - tuned in @ the 60th minute.

    Playing on the left flank.

    He caused a pen that created a second yellow situation. Commentator saying he's been less then stellar of late with penalties.

    Insigne's passing is...stellar. And he is coming back a lot. Lots of runs.

    When he came on, Mertens kept the captain's arm band.

    Napoli camped in the penalty area like its a 5 on 3 power play in hockey

    Ciro Immobile to TFC? Just kidding. But he did help get us Insigne.

    I agree. Manning has talked about a 5-year strategy leading up to the World Cup which likely means expanding the stadium again. They want trophies, MLS Cups, Champions League games and making this team relevant in the market. I can't imagine Manning said to the board: "We only need Insigne"

    I believe we sign another forward to record breaking contract. God willing!

    Singh definitely needs the time in the CPL. 175k is the transfer fee allegedly.

    Interesting that it went from Lukas being on trial during the pre-season with an eye towards and transfer to it actually happening now, much quicker than it had been suggested. Wonder if Pacific and/or Lukas pushed it not wanting to risk things?

    He’s been training with the club for quite a while now. I’m guessing that they’ve already had a good look at him in Toronto

    Singh going to Pacific would explain why he's the only first teamer (besides the obvious players who are departing) that I haven't seen in a photo or video posted by the team... And that hair is hard to miss

    Be interesting to see just how much playing time MacNaughton gets. He probably sits pretty firmly as our #4 CB if Salcedo is indeed coming.

    I would think he would remain with the Reds rather than sitting at home until Pacific's pre-season opens.

    Gigi is looking to finish his career outside of Italy. Let’s sign all the Italians.

    Queue speculation of Ciro to NYCFC in next couple of years. Other side of 30; although seems to be under contract until 2026.
    Another very intriguing connect with Lino Di Cuollo.
    Also interesting tell about the house/living idea in NYC.
    Could be part of a theme of vaca-escape from the Euro paparazzi to American anonymity among some prominent footballers.
    IIRC Ronaldo may have done something similar a few years ago; but before his personal US legal issues.
    Story seems to still support my personal bias and sour grapes with Manning regarding the Insigne story.
    I think Insigne more like fell into his/our lap, then being initially and specifically targeted; Not the first draft in the 5 Year Plan.
    I think Insigne was the surprise meat in an initial Criscito sandwich, a Mertens side order and now Immobile drink... combo.
    May explain what feels to me like a roster construction rethink once this next tier centerpiece was landed.
    Coincidence or maybe the catalyst for the secondary wave of roster amped up activity and mass exodus situations.
