    Missed the match. What shape were the midfield three in?

    Felt like a triangle with Poz playing in front. But Osorio definitely pivoted to get forward frequently.

    Thanks for the reply jloome; very kind of you and appreciated.
    Please don't get frustrated with me; be gentle.
    If you are referencing the diagram with the starting XI in a column, then I already saw it.
    Otherwise, it seems I still have missed it somehow. Forgive me, just to clarify...
    I am talking about the typical pitch diagram with the dots and the players names beside them.
    Usually of both sides coaches' opening match formations; eg. 4-(1-2)-3.
    I thought I saw an 'official' posting but it may have also been a fan's comment and illustration on the inter-web.
    I am ok to figure it out from what I viewed and has been mentioned about the game by yourself and everyone else's comments.
    Just thought there was something quasi official from TFC/BB.
    Sorry. Cheers; confusion to the enemy- not us.

    Unfortunately I missed the rest of the match after the storm delay. I figured they would have the full highlights but all I've found were the few short clips on TFC twitter.

    I thought Salcedo didn't look too great in the few minutes I watched, what did others think? He seemed to be a bit over-aggressive and got caught overcommitting while way out of position. But I didn't see enough to have much of an opinion about him or anyone.

    Yes the geo-blocking is league policy.

    Pozuelo sighting at 0:20: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=693174765175746

    I forgot that Pozuelo used to be at Swansea City.

    Ha. I didn’t even know that. I just looked it up and I actually saw him live when they played at Upton Park that season. It was the match where Andy Carroll’s arm hit Chico’s ponytail and he went down like a ton of bricks causing Carroll to get a red.

    The Limp Acts are playing Santos Laguna in CCL right now. Santos stadium is 2/3 empty. They're apparently on a very poor run of form.

    Ah, you noticed that did you? Me too. And only 5 for 8 on penalties this season too

    Also... for this season...
    IIRC most or all of Criscito's goals are from penalties as well.
    I haven't taken the time to research Destro's goals yet.
    However, I am suspecting his production is predominantly from open play given Criscito seems to be the team's de facto penalty kick taker.
    What I am not sure about, is if Destro's play is the cause of most of those penalties and Criscito's takes.

    I watched Insigne every week for last couple years. I am not concerned about him only getting one open play goal so far this season. Hopefully nobody is looking at that stat and worried in any way about his ability to contribute with TFC.

    Straight up stats never tell the whole story. Thanks for clearing this up!

    Absolutely anyone who follows soccer outside of the North American game knows that Insigne is a World class too 50 player

    Yeah I think safe to say most of us know this in this forum so maybe I am just stating the obvious.

    What a little dick he is.

    "Soteldo: I gave away a year of my career in MLS"

    Yeah... gave away. Like you weren't paid $1.4M to dribble the ball into isolation and have the worst strike rate in MLS.

    Haha...why am I not surprised at that quote? Seems to fit the attitude he looked like he had. TFC are better off without that kind of ego.

    That Santos quote about not wanting him back was pretty telling. They must have been kissing each other after we paid $6M for him.

    Which is another strike against Curtis and Manning that they couldn't read the signs. Hopefully BB has a good BS detector.

    I wonder how he'll react to Gignac being the man at Tigres. Will he pout when he's not the PK taker

    Which is also hilarious because after taking a million years to do anything Ali Curtis always talked about how much work and how well thought out his plans were.

    Not sure what he does with his time but the maxim of busy vs productive rings true

    Sounds like a bad translation, to me. Like, it's a literal one, but it's not capturing the meaning of the expressions. But overall, he's saying he gave away a year and it didn't go well. I don't think he's blaming TFC or MLS, but rather himself (based on subsequent comments in the interview).

    In the same interview, he also admits that he wasn't on his best behaviour, so at least he recognizes it.

    In Spanish:
    El venezolano señaló que “hay cosas que no he hecho bien, por no estar con la familia, por ser joven, pero todo eso se corrige”.
    Soteldo también ha sido tachado de indisciplinado: “Voy a trabajar para no cometer más esas cosas y menos acá, vengo con muchas ilusiones”.

    "There are things I haven't done properly, because I wasn't with my family, because I'm young, but all this can be corrected."
    "I will work to not do these things, especially here, I am here with a lot of hope"

    Bad translations are rife these days between shoddy journalism and google translate. (So many communication avenues and so little communication.)

    It doesn't help that the "Media" reporting it all played it as attacking MLS as well. Maybe I'm being too harsh on the guy.

    Good to see you on the boards Jack.

    So apparently in his first Clausura appearance, Soteldo came on in the second half and broke the record for most chances created in a single game with 10, including two assists.

    Can we do all former TFC players posts that doesn't have any relations to current TFC in the former player thread? Thanks
