    I say that and he gets beaten easily twice.

    I seriously doubt Kaiden Chung is the long term RB plan...but gonna suffer until then.

    Salcedo might be the best passer on the team. Definitely looks miles better than Bradley today at it.

    Really poor first half from TFC I thought. Got exposed a bunch of times down the flanks, and didn’t create any chances really.

    Geoblocked for me, I tried 4 countries.
    Can someone recommend a free VPN which works and does not need to be downloaded? (I mean I just open it in browser, and enter website address)

    I am using TunnelBear. Jloome suggested it for me previously and it is working great. Unfortunately it needs to be downloaded.

    ...but you can turn it off once you have access.

    Not sure browser-only ones work for this sort of thing, as they just obscure your IP, they don't provide routing through a server in another city, typically.

    Someone missed a sitter off a corner. Not sure if it was O'Neill or Perruzza.

    I'd be very concerned if that was the first unit allowing that.

    Second half squad seems to be able to penetrate that final 1/3 a little bit better. They move a lot quicker than that first half squad.

    I still have zero idea just what kind of player Noble Okello is.

    So much unnecessary runs happening. The entire game. My head hurts. Like a ping pong match. TFC chasing the ball all over the field.

    Was Achara the scorer there? Good second effort anyway.

    Oh... did they wipe that one off?

    EDIT: Late to change the score.

    People were getting over optimistic after the last few pre-season wins.

    The squad is very thin, and youngsters are being slotted into the first team, sometimes in positions they've never played before.

    We aren't gong to be starting the season on fire. More reinforcements will be coming, but the beginning of the season will have some rough days. It is what it is. This overhaul was needed.

    Do we HAVE to point to the Iverson Meme?



    We are talking PRACTICE

    Yeah, I mean... we're rotating out entire lineups, playing the kids for 30-60 minutes.

    He's Bob the Builder by rep for a reason. I imagine when he's looking for backups he's mostly looking at what he can turn them into, not their immediate competitiveness.

    Bit flat on that one. He pulled the lines tighter and had them trying to m ove the ball more quickly but at times it was too quick, too much ping pong, not enough final ball.

    On the positive side, Walkes, Achara and Shaff all looked up for it. Okello is improving his movement. Kadin Chun looked okay in an offensive set but was beat for speed twice and naivete another time, certainly doesn't look ready. McNaughton had two passes intercepted in which he just underestimated the defender's speed, tried to force it.

    i donít think he knows either. And if he doesnít find out soon itís going to be career-wrecking.

    I'm glad things have quieted down again. This is the CURRENT player / coach / GM off-season roster discussion thread. Jozy is now a confirmed former player of TFC. For further Jozy talk, IMO the best place would be the Jozy thread, or possibly the "former player" thread. Or if it's about general team issues that may come up in this context, there are also other threads.

    The only thing relevant to this thread from the linked article is the following, which I believe was already noted but it helps to confirm:

    While Toronto will continue to pay a major chunk of his salary the next two seasons, it will not count against its salary cap. Altidore's salary of US$3.6 million ranked seventh in the league in 2021. The Revs extended Altidore's contact by a year and will be solely responsible solely for the 2024 portion.
    There are lots of opinions about Jozy. In a situation like this, you never know everything. And even if more comes out later, it will always be coloured by the leaker. This all quickly inflames passions, and derails the chat about the current squad.

    Yea sometimes he looks silky smooth on the ball, but still manages to lose possession frequently when he can't make a decision or makes the wrong one.

    Liked the Achara goal he's always working hard out there. Pulling for him to make the most of opportunities this year.

    Okello & Bradley are playing the same way - just one is a lot quicker & taller & less experienced.

    Didn't see the game, but good to see that Kobe Franklin is still with the team and came in in the second half. Was surprised when he wasn't on the Austin camp roster.

    I see our old draft pick who never played Griffin Dorsey got the assist on the first goal against us

    ďBrings nothing at the MLS levelĒ is quite the definitive determination based on watching a guy play a part of a single pre-season game.

    Some of the replies here are hilarious to me. I give zero shits about preseason, are we really gonna shit on players over games that mean literally nothing? Wait until the actual season starts FFS. I only lurk here once in a while but some users seem to love hating on Canadian players.

    Franklin may have picked up a small injury before the California camp. There was word on one day that he was out of training for a small injury and that was right before they left, so...

    BB presser post-game, he said they were a bit flat because they came in tired, that he's pushing them hard to get ahead of the start of the season.

    I think we should sign Walkes. He's looked quick and clever, good work rate. Viader looks okay as a backup on the right.

    Petrasso has been a pleasant surprise. Big step from USL I but he's looked pretty good.

    What a waste that would be. Iím surprised Okello hasnít come further the past couple of seasons. I hope Bob can help sort him out. Get the feeling heís been lacking for attention, but not the only young TFC player to be in that boat. Maybe the main one who has stayed with the club though.
