    -McNaughton---Mavinga---Criscito----------O'Neil----
    ---------------------Westberg-----------------------
    Did I hear correctly yesterday that Mavinga has a kid in the Sick Children’s hospital?

    If so, sort of changes the perspective.

    But not on him starting. Head and focus just aren’t there right now.

    I figure we either see Petrasso wide left and Criscito central, or O’Neill/McNaughton. They’re both okay. All of our defenders are tactically skilled, it’s just the positional focus and decision making that hurts.

    Oh no!
    Aside from a few rumored or mentioned historical past matters,
    I understood Mavinga 'had' recently experienced several additional stressful issues; Covid and one that involved the health of his child.
    Not aware, did not register, that his kid 'is' or 'continues to be', in Sick Kids Children Hospital; that the situation continues and is serious.
    Changes my perspective.
    With such an ongoing matter, I completely empathize with the lack of focus and discipline in play he is experiencing.
    To be expected and explains a lot.
    Hopefully all resolves quickly and for the best of everyone.

    To be crass...
    I suppose he needs to take the hint?
    I am so past the Bono saga and question.
    No longer seems to matter. Don't care. We need to move on.
    In so far as if we can dangle and trade him this window, lets get something if we can.

    The more or most important question... what is up with Osorio's contract?
    We should get that renewed, within reason, and announced.
    Hopefully, Laryea's situation has given him second thoughts about Europe.
    That LigaMX would be outside of his living comfort zone.
    And that he understands, respects and embraces the uniqueness of being cherished as a one-team / TFC lifer in MLS.
    If not, Thank-You, We Love You, Gonna Miss You, You Will Always Mean A Lot To Us, It's Been Great, All The Best, Hugs & Pats... Bye-Bye!
    Now who's the best option available?

    Bono's contract is so large, no team will take him for a backup
    &
    his quality is such, nobody will take him as a starter

    He's going to need a very good agent.

    If I were him I'd already be leaking news about a supposed new contract being at an impasse.

    Somebody in MLS will take Bono on a reduced next year to fight for a position & the spin will be "we are bringing in a veteran who has won a lot of things"

    I still think we don't succeed with any keepers until Conway is let go.

    I think Bono will be a USL player next season.

    Bono will find a home as a starting mls keeper on a reduced salary.

    His shot stopping is decent and his weakness (kicking and passing) won't be as evident on half the teams in the league that don't play out from the back so much

    Regardless...
    If you were for or against the move.
    If you think Fede is quirky, weird, metro or otherwise.
    Rate or don't rate him.
    He seems to be, like Salcedo, brand savvy and class...

    He definitely has a good agent. I mean he did manage to get TFC to give him over half a million annually .

    Edit: Looked it up. He has the same agent as Jonathan David, Cyle Larin, and Richie Laryea.

    reggie, this further tease is for you and a few others.

    Take a deep breath, pause... plz don't have an anxiety attack...

    Did you notice when it was mentioned in this thread that in the posted TFC - Insigne Welcome Promo Video,
    the close out clip was just of Lorenzo and Fede celebrating a Euro Cup goal?
    Coincidence? Premonition? Subliminal Messaging?

    Well... take note of Osorio's shirt in this sketch bit with Sherman...
    Mmmm...

    EDIT: And 24hrs later Manuel Veth suggests...

    https://twitter.com/ManuelVeth/statu...76234122358784

    Just saying.

    Oh and a further connect...
    In the murky world of Footballer Super Agents.
    Current? Balotelli Agents 'One' /of Mino 'Fat-Tony-Soprano' Raiola (RIP) at times / once represented both Insigne and Bernardeschi.

    About four pics down... who's that in the middle?

    Kerr is pretty decent, I'm glad he gets the starts. Pretty soon (hopefully) there won't be many kids starting. But if this is a full rebuild, Bradley Jr needs to be a sub.

    Also, why is Rutty not getting minutes? He tried out with Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea. I'd argue he's better than most of the kids and yet he doesn't even get 30 seconds today.

    Even though both goals were offside, Ayo can finish. He should get service with the 2 DP's

    It’s scary to think that even if a heathy team. The first midfield substitute after someone goes down would have to be Kerr.

    This is all flawed, if you ask me

    I realize that hindsight is 20 20, but the decision to turn over more than half the roster after last season and start 4 or 5 academy players every game ranks amongst the worst decisions in TFC history, with the result being another lost season. If they had kept Delgado, Aurora and Lawrence they probably would have enough points to be in the playoffs until the summer transfer window players arrived. They then could have unloaded those players at end of year. Instead Insige and Bernadeschi will be playing nothing more than glorified friendlies this season.

    It's maddening. A gamble that completely failed. A lot of failures. I gave Bill a lot of benefit of the doubt and backing but wasted season after season. He's lucky Mlse has big pockets to save him.
