    Oso now saying he would prefer to play in Europe. Hopes the club will help him explore that option.

    Humility. Key word necessity wise.
    Michael Bradley has a higher level of maturity and perspective than Bill Manning. It’s not even close.

    Nice to see Oso make it clear that he's not just playing for the club, he's also a supporter of the club. Even if he goes to Europe. He's always been and always will be one of us.

    Losing Oso and Richie would absolutely force a total rebuild. They are both two important pieces in the next stage of this club imo.

    Poz just looks like a guy who needs to be given time on account of going through some personal shit. If we stick by him, it’ll be rewarded.

    Altidore, on the other hand has been a chronic under achiever in recent years.

    I can see Richie having some clubs interested based on his age and ability to play both left and right back at a high level. I just don't know how much interest a 30 year old Oso is gonna generate in Europe.

    Better than my idea of refering to them as "Father" and "Son".

    I'm thinking this is the idea but maybe a 1 & 1 deal.

    Seba needs to stop dicking around the club with numbers the club won’t agree to and the club needs to focus on moving forward. Seba can do something reasonable like Dero 2014 or he can not play for the club.

    I think Osorio is a bit optimistic regarding a European move, Liga MX would be a much more natural for for him.

    I notice there was no availability for Altidore. Gonna be interested to hear Manning's comments when he is asked about Jozy.

    TBH I wouldn't be too shaken up losing Oso for the sole fact that he's proven himself to be "a victim of his surroundings". When the team is doing well I think he excels (CANMNT included), but over the years when the team has struggled, he blends into his surroundings rather than trying to take the team by the throat - I think that's what we need him to be and he's proven that he cannot be.

    My $0.02

    Yeah that's fair, I do think he is a good glue player and surrounded by the right pieces he helps them excel. If Bob can get a coherent team identity in place I think Osorio can thrive, he's got high football IQ for sure. Just a value question at that point based on his salary and if someone could be a glue player for less.

    I think Oso will be sold, but even if he is not…

    Remember Julio Cesar coming here to get game action?

    Oso and Laryea have to both go on loan Jan-May, if a good enough club/situation is there. TFC owe it to
    those guys. BB will understand this. It isn’t even a conversation.

    A dream scenario would be if those guys could play on Eustaquio’s team in Portugal. I have no idea if that makes any sense for that team.

    Manning doesn't sound like he wants to move Richie and Oso.

    The team will be "decisive and bold" this offseason says Manning. Might of been a bit of a shot at a former employee who was anything but.
