    Hey Oldtimer, thanks for the assist with that piece of business yesterday; appreciated.

    It can't be easy with fools as me. I envision you, your moderating, in a spirit of fun and sincerity as a... The Commissioner Of Football, 'King Eric' Cantona...

    Don't think Insigne will need the assist to do this with our goalkeepers... well maybe if Borjan joins.

    What is interesting and likely fun to watch about Insigne is that enough of his goals come from outside the box shots.
    Something I believe is historically lacking on TFC.

    Came across some podcasts yesterday, b or c tier?, mentioning during discussions about Insigne's TFC signing that aside from the money, there may be a quality of life aspect to his decision and having his family- children exposed to another culture and learning English. Sorry, unable to re-find the podcasts to link.

    That's very likely. That seems to be a big reason a lot of foreign players cite in their decision to come to MLS, and Toronto especially.

    Only thing I can think of is maybe Insigne has the day off, so he'd available for a press conference today. Time difference, Napoli practices, maybe that factored in

    ^That makes sense.

    Teams in England used to make big announcements on Saturdays because the outsize role of the Sunday papers over there. But that has probably changed. Not sure if that is still true in digital age, or whether it was ever true in Italy.

    It depends on the person, but I think lifestyle and a bit of personal freedom could be the single biggest factor. Giovinco certainly said it, and his family is still here.

    These guys live very weird lives in Europe. Elite football is a world with a truly distorted value system. Plus, like the Leaf players here, an Insigne really can’t ever just go out to dinner or go out to the mall over there.

    The freedom part I get but trading an espresso in an old piazza for a Starbucks in the Eaton Centre would be a hard lifestyle choice change. Hopefully he’s prepared for that part.

    This is a tough one. The academy has objectively not been a great success… but it’s Dichio….

    TFC's official Twitter off to a blazing start this morning with a borderline racist post they were forced to delete.

    You're welcome, we don't get a lot of thanks for a sometimes difficult job, so appreciated.
    It's one way I can help (I've also done banner making a few times, and of course done road trips and chanted in the stands). You seem enthusiastic! Consider joining the RPB and help raise support for the team (pandemic situation permitting) whether by chanting, banner making, or whatever skill set you have.

    Any further communication about moderating please do by PM. Let's stay on topic. 🙂

    You forget the Cafe Diplomatico in Little Italy. There's places he can go for a taste of Italy.

    From what someone posted earlier, the official announcement will be tweeted out and posted to the website at 9am. Manning will hold a presser at 11am which will likely be on YouTube.

    It was a video of some guy being an over the top Italian stereotype. It was not very well recieved, especially among the newly following crowd from Italy.

    Yeah, that sounds pretty cringy. They should cool it with the Italian stuff and just focus on the players themselves.

    What was it? Some "boppity boopity" kinda thing? If so, I'll give them a pass since it's probably Giacometti doing it. (EDIT: Yup, figured)



    On a similar note, good luck getting many Italians to sing that Insigne song, at least in its original Neapolitan form, LOL. It's a fun one, though.
