    Only mitigating factor is the requirement of having a DP slot open but yes - the teams with a DP slot open should have all jumped at the prospect of getting one of the best players to ever put on an MLS Crested kit.

    Also need to find a team willing to pay his salary. A bunch of teams are too cheap to pay 2.5M for half a season of Poz.

    Also need a team willing to use an AM.

    That & Miami isn't a bad place to be in.

    This gives me some of hope. And of course, as our favourite glass-half empty friends will note, these numbers only get better in MLS. Just crossing my fingers he finds the net on occasion

    I get it but at the same time if you thought you had a chance to win this year Having Poz with no long term commitment looks pretty good. That and the Apple money is coming

    Fab update. Nothing new, but he is obviously well connected in the Italian market and with TFC.

    Re: Poz, I would bet very good money he has a no trade clause.

    I know it’s sucks but that’s the price of bringing in a new DP.

    My wife's view about being told all this - Does this mean we can get a good defender?

    So looks like B is a good creator from the wing, is tall, and works hard. Good qualities for any team. Anything else anyone can add (other than “he is from Serie A and it’s better than MLS” which is both true to some degree and completely useless. There are lots of players who contribute at a higher level who are nothing special in the lower, in all sorts of leagues. Then there are the ones like Jozy and Seba whose skill sets worked brilliantly in this league). I’m excited by the vision but would like to know more.

    Don’t know why, but I had a feeling MAK was a target. Fits the CNMT and returning player talk, plus he’s a good fit for BB’s style.

    Well, this is turning into a transformative sort of day. Land a right back and we have a team that should make the playoffs, at least.

    Bradley obviously knows Kaye well and MAK is proven in MLS. I would much rather him here than Hoilett.

    Also, vindication for those of us who have been screaming for midfield help.

    Have to ask if MAK is a huge upgrade for us why would Colorado trade him? Did they not pay a steep price to acquire him? I don't see the huge upgrade unless what we already have is that poor that any player coming in would be considered an upgrade

    Bradley knows he fits in his system. Fraser’s less so, plus more competition there.

    Rapids traded $1M in GAM for Kaye, who is now on $700k per season. Time for TFC to use up that GAM we've been saving. With the increase in the amount of GAM each team has, I'd figure it would be around $1.2M to get Kaye. Kaye is also under contract until 2025 (option for 2026). This gives us some midfield stability if Oso ends up leaving at the end of the season.

    Seriously, if we come out of this all without a better group of CB's, I'm not sure how much will change.

    Wheeler says Rapids wants young players. So maybe Nelson/Priso/Okello/Shaff going the other way?

    MAK is gonna cost a ransom - have to wonder if burning that level of XAM is worth it when you could actually go scout a guy and not burn valuable Garber bucks.

    Hope this falls into the obviously smart bucket and not the lazy sign a CANMNT dude bucket.

    And, obviously, MAK is talented as all hell.

    Not sold on MAK. Please stop looking at the passport.
