    But Bernie will be a DP. JJ isn't.

    The technical ability of our front 3 of Insigne/Jesus/Bernie is incredible. They aren't exactly gonna kill people with pace, but the chances these guys will create for each other will be so much fun to watch. Add a battering ram like Ayo in later in the game and we are gonna eat.

    I agree with this for the most part. Not sure about places like Houston or NYRB that never seem to get support even when they're good but overall, for sure.

    Yeah, I donít disagree. Broadening the general interest in MLS and widening the fan base to capture more existing fans of the game could work wonders.

    If every team had a couple of known "stars" it would increase overall viewership.

    Attach that newly found GAM to Bono and trade him for whatever low draft pick they can get. Italy remains very good at producing goalkeepers, there's got to be at least one within the club's transfer network. And it's a position that doesn't require an acclimation period. I'd take Sirigu in a heatbeat as a stopgap measure. Played with Criscito last season and out of contract. Assuming there are enough international spots to go around.

    From wikipedia, we have 3 open slots (4 is Salcedo leaves). The extra spot can't be filled by anyone currently on the roster until next year (well Auro could technically fill it if they were to bring him back) since it requires 1 full year, so that would be Jiminez next year

    We should get rid of Achara ASAP, no matter if only for a bag of balls, the guy is totally worthless, had zero impact on matches any time he played this season.

    At some point the league has to do this and get rid of the DP rule if it wants to be a true footy league.

    Getting guys like Bernadeschi while they are 28 - I feel we are not far off.

    Well, JJ looked like that in Extralasa, Bernie looked like that in Serie A. I see the reasons why we should be both optimistic and pessimistic, but Bernie should be able to get better stats in MLS.

    I feel like his performance got destroyed by the pandemic. 2020 preseason he was a beasts, scoring in almost every game I think. First game in 2020, he was dominant, scored the disallowed goal, then scored the winner. Then covid hit, he got injured and was out for a year,and has been pretty meh ever since. Would've loved to see how he would've been in early 2020 with an extended run at his peak.

    not when you pay him 6-7 millionÖ thatís the problem not his skill set. Paying a dp that has a good work ethic and technically sound yet not an offensive force is a waste of a limit resource ie a dp spot.

    This will turn out like JDG all overÖ most people will have through the roof expectations and then he contributes maybe 6-9 goals and 6-10 assists a season

    Those stats are pretty in line with what Pozuelo has produced, especially when you take out PKs.

    Last year 8 non-PK goals and 8 assists would have ranked 26th and 10th in the league.

    I'd be over the moon with that kind of production along with a positive influence tracking up and down.

    Yes, that would be my fear too, although I wouldnít be upset at the numbers you listed.

    My fear would be something like 5-10 A+G total, in all completions. Or that when LI is out of the lineup heís not able to be the creative catalyst and our attack goes to shit.

    But letís see. Theyíre not done yet and Iím inclined to hope it succeeds.

    This is good news. Time to invest in a quality physio and fitness team.

    Last year was a write off, I won’t judge anyone from TFC after the debacle of a season. You can’t take out the PKs as it’s not guaranteed goal. BTW Poz has the best pk conversion of any tfc player ever. Play poz in his natural 10 position and he contends for mvp every year. But why not compare him to his mvp season or any of Seba’s seasons or when jozy was healthy. My point those are tam level stats period.

    I wouldn't even complain about this if he can be the guy to transition us from defense to offense quickly so our other forwards can have goal scoring opportunities. That wouldn't show up on any score sheets but it's something we're sorely lacking right now.

    I only took out PKs because I donít imagine Bernardeschi would take them. Heís likely third or fourth in line, even though heís scored 6/7 heís taken in club football.
    My only point is that 8+8 is really good in this league. It compares reasonably well with Gustavo Bou last season.

    I wouldn't be too disappointed with those numbers either. If we could have paired him with a true gamebreaking forward like Woot Weghorst and I'd have been pretty happy.

    I saw two other "sources" say the same thing today.

    Would make sense though. No Insigne Saturday but a walk out introduction for Bernie instead.

    they wouldn't have pulled the trigger on the pozuelo trade without having a replacement finalized (you would think/hope).
