    Per Manning, Jozy buyout rumours false, but BB will evaluate all positions (so not ruling it out either). So yeah, good chance he is gone.

    Yeah. I believe they need to wait until the new league year to formally announce it if they do infact buy him out.

    What I am liking is that Manning's current precarious job position + Bob Bradley being Bob Bradley means this off season will be free of fucking around. Things will happen fast and I expect the roster is basically set before preseason starts.

    Also makes me think that the chances of a rebuild are not high. This will be a retooling.

    Manning refutes the rebuild talk. Calls this a transition year.

    Oh my god! The first time this team has admitted the defense isn't good enough.

    And thats ok if done properly, I just had zero confidence in Curtis. Already feel better about the attitude, the professionalism and the dedication to the city and the fans. Far less arrogance and far more, we need to get back to work.

    Manning is taking a bigger role with TFC. Sounds like he is giving up some of his responsibilities with the Argos.

    Who could blame him? I'm sure their dozens of fans are pissed right now.

    Manning deserves credit for not letting Curtis pick another coach, taking charge and picking Bob Bradley. These are good decisions.

    He's at fault for letting Curtis damage the team so badly, but then again he probably was focused on the dumpster fire that is the Argos.

    He deserves some chance to prove his decisions.

    Have to be careful here - the narrative that the world was ruined by Curtis and requires a silver knight to come save it benefits who exactly?

    Curtis eating all the shit means Manning is doing an effective job deflecting.

    I think he said Pinball is doing more with Argos. I don't follow the CFL at all, but I do believe Argo fans love him so maybe they are happy.

    It was his job though. He was the GM of TFC and was in charge of the roster and coaching staff decisions. Sure Manning rubber stamped it but that's what happens when you name your #2. You trust him to do his job right and that he knows what he's doing. At least after it was clear Curtis didn't have a clue, Manning stepped in and made the necessary moves. It cost us a season but at least it's getting done now and we're probably shedding the dead weight if 2017 finally.

    Soteldo rumours squashed as fiction but they won’t commit to not moving him as that’s all up to Bradley, basically

    Manning doing the same dance around Yefe's future he did Altidore. Talked at length about Pozuelo. Take of that what you will.

    Bradley’s up now. Says he’s watched every TFC game for eight years because of Michael.

    Roster has “a lot of work to be done. It’s one thing to do it on paper. It’s another thing… when they show up everyday, how are they on the field, are they committed to teammates and the club.”

    It’s a “reset for everyone. The club, the identity, to say to players in some cases “you’ve had good days here, but where are you? Is this the right place for you, are you committed? I don’t have all the answers but there weren’t enough times this year when there was a real commitment from every guy throughout the game.”

    Translation: he will brook no arrogance.

    Sounds like we will have lots to talk about in this thread in the coming weeks and months.

    Michael Bradley is not losing any playing time next year based on this presser. Bob compares him to Xabi Alonso and Michael Carrick.

    On the pitch “I’m not his father,” Bradley says of Michael and whether he plays.

    Bob Bradley calls Jozy Altidore's situation a 'cloud' that needs to clear.

    Well, he said all the right things. Not a hint of not knowing or bullshit to any of it.

    No surprise, sounds like Morrow has accepted position at the club.
    BB mentioned speaking to him and Jason Hernandez about football matters.

    So, I think I'm pretty excited for next season. Let's get it going.

    If anything he knew more than I expected. Obviously info trickling back from MB to BB.

    Good presser. Armas had a really good one too though. Excited to see what Bob gets done this offseason.

    I always thought Michael Bradleys exact problem was he thought he was Xabi Alonso when he is actually Claude Makelele so this isn't good. I think if he had the ability to play within his strengths and strengths alone he'd have made it further in Europe and the more you see his ego on the pitch the worse his performances are
