    I’m taking the silence as somewhat agreement.

    Last year was different though, given we had no idea who the next coach would be or if Poz would regain form.

    Would have to assume that JJ/Ayo would move to the wing and odd man out be first off the bench. If so, Destro would be a good move because a front three of Insigne, Destro, JJ/Ayo would be lethal if it clicked even 75%.

    However, not a real mid-to-long term solution and have to wonder if there is better value to be had. Similarly, if Destro money would be better spent on a true winger of similar level.

    Headline on Destro: Manning filtered for Italians with expiring contracts on Transfermarkt. (We have a multi-billion dollar corp’s backing and likely no individuals properly dedicated to running our transfers/trades).

    Has any one done diligence on our Young Money signing space? Do we have just one and is it Ayo?

    Once Insigne joins, our 3 DPs will all be over 24 yo and above the TAM threshold ($1.6125M).

    We will be down to one U22 slot, and Akinola is it.

    A few guys suggested Poz out last year on this and other sites , clearly he was on a downward spiral , there was value in trading him many many months ago , not now , another bad calculation by this organization.

    He was only a year removed from MVP voting and had life circumstances that could affect a player's form. With that in mind sometimes you don't be a dickhead organization and trade a guy who was good for you while he was suffering through some shit.

    jesus can play out wide, as can akinola in a bob bradley system with lots of interchange.

    front 3 options of jesus, akinola, destro, insigne, nelson, new rw? (questionable), perruzza would be great.

    What was he suffering through? A handsome millionaire getting divorced , spare me the tears , he will be on the French Riviera with younger hotter woman when he time mercifully ends here. He was actually starting to slide in his final two months of his MVP season, last time I checked MLSE is not a charity , should of sent Poz away a year ago, 4.5 million for what????

    Wth all the attacking player rumours I’m starting to wonder if the defensive plan is to just hit 80% possession.

    Is that not how the 2017 team was constructed? Seba vv and Josy keeping the ball scoring on average 3 goals every home match

    True.
    Or Maybe Manning has the clipboard upside down and thinks BB wants to play a 2-4-4?

    You don't sell or trade a player coming off of an MVP season. If that was suggested a year ago, you'd be out here calling MLSE cheap and throwing away the best player in the league. Give me a break.

    If you're going to pick an example, maybe make sure they didn't go on on to win the MVP the next season and win the scoring title three times with LA. Just because someone did it, doesn't mean TFC should do it.

    what bigger club was knocking on our door for Poz after he won the MVP?

    Easy to say that on a message board. If it were that easy we should have sold Jozy to a bigger club. We should sell Bono July 1st to Europe.

    Poz posted on his IG story today, himself, mavinga and achara on the truck that drives them across the field captioned "c'est la vie"

    Im not sure how to take it, is he saying thats life oh well or thats life grateful for being able to play soccer lol

    Last year for all three I think. Well it's expected. Can't do a full rebuild in one window and there will always be a few hangers on during the transition phase. I am expecting and hoping for a few more to be gone too (Bono, Westberg).

    Toronto FC II signs Priso's brother Hugo Mbongue to a professional contract. Surprised they didn't do this earlier (he's been playing with TFC2 on an academy allocation). He turns 18 in July, probably could've just left for free if he didn't get signed to a pro deal, which would've been terrible. He has great potential from what I've seen in his games (mostly last year I watched)

    Very interesting and quite intelligent as the oilers won the Stanley cup the very next year while the kings won zilch, but the point I’m making is that there are no soccer minds at MLSE that figured out that Poz was done and they didn’t capitalize after his MVP season by getting rid of him when he had perceived value, absolutely shit show TFC management group

    Scottie Barnes won Rookie of the Year in the NBA. Raptors should trade him now that his value is high.

    People that post stuff like this and “Bob Bradley” out because we not a title contender three months in also need to realize that the management team isn’t playing FIFA for Xbox. If you dump a reigning MVP because his marriage is falling apart in the midst of a global pandemic and his play is suffering accordingly, other players and agents take notice and view your club accordingly. Reputation matters.

    Similarly if we hit reboot on Bradley because he decided to spend 4 months (painfully) figuring out what he has with our young players, we’d be the laughing stock of the league.

    And cup or no cup, saying that the Oilers trading Gretzky was a “sell high” savvy management decision is revisionist history of the worst kind. Go read how and why that unfolded and explain how it’s at all relevant to this team.

    This management group would come off looking like Einstein if they had dealt Poz , what was the point of keeping him while this team tumbled down the standings cementing themselves as the garbage of MLS. Bringing in a Soltedo which clearly was a mistake then trading him for Salcedo who looks at the same level as the other two Backs which we are paying a fraction of Salcedos wages is was separates good management and morons.
