    So checking out the stats, I know we have given up 38 goals which is 2nd worst in the league at this point. However, if you were to check prior to yesterday's game, MTL who is sitting in 4th have given up 35 goals. Now Cincinnati have given up the same amount and they are in 6th. Somehow they are both just getting points throughout those games where they are still leaking quite close to the same amount of goals as us.

    Going to miss watching this game live, and because TSN has the shittiest app and site possible, I wonít be able to watch a replay. Probably not good for my mental health anyway.

    Canít wait for Apple to take over.

    To be successful Petrasso, O'Neil, Mavinga and Kosi cannot be in the XI so unless a whole new backline is at KTG this morning it's not looking great.

    I'd be OK with Petrasso O'Neill MacNaughton Criscito.

    That's the best we can do right now but if Croscito won't play RB then Chung. Time to rest Kosi for a while.

    I am ok with R to L,
    O'Neill, Criscito, Mavinga, MacNaughton.
    Although, we may never see Mavinga on the pitch for TFC again.
    Plus,
    Kaye, Bradley, Osorio.
    JJ, Nelson, Akinola.

    IMHO, this is the back line that should have started last game as the best option for the best chance.
    I cannot believe who and the way Bob fielded what he did.
    Regardless of his mantra and the way we perceive him, when required or suited by him,
    Bob has made personnel and formation-al, strategic and tactical, play adjustments in his past.
    Any first half season assessment experiment is over; nothing more to be gained, unless...
    And I am probably reading too much into it, but...
    This is why I think some Machiavellian, 4D Chess, shoving and tugging, power play may be going on; message sending?
    Bob's mood and smirks during the Mavinga incident, as well as during the post game presser may be telling.
    One may argue that there seems to be a clear delineation between Bob and Bill selections.
    Regarding their player visions, requirements, requisitions and any consultations with The Hand U and King T.
    Maybe there is a battle going on about that last DP option and how it should be used?

    According to whoscored, Kosi is our overall highest rated defender.

    No doubt.
    I support any Moneyball-esque argument.
    However, football, the beautiful game, on occasion, as an art, at times deserves such an approach.
    Sometimes it's the intangibles.
    Maybe experience in favour of objective statistics in this case?

    After Wednesday's game, I'd rather get rid of Ayo to anyone who would take him. Woeful.

    If anyone here is convinced tfc is not going to win in Montreal hereís a betting strategy you can employ
    Bet in the following ratio $2.45for Montreal, $1.00 for a tie
    if tfc does not win you make $0.80
    If tfc wins you lose $3.45

    More proof that analytics are useless. He gets the highest score by standing around and removing himself from the action. By this metric I could play RB and just mark the right side linesman and I'd be like a 7.4

    I actually posted it more out of surprise than conviction. I thought he looked absolutely demoralized last game, I felt bad for him. I would sit him and Petrasso next game, and let Criscito and JMR start. Unfortunately, I feel like Bob has already written the season off and itís now a moot point.

    3 games before that, he was great.

    i.e. Lets not throw away people based on a small sample of games within a 2 week period.

    Is this around the corner from the (probably for
    er home of) Tramway bistro?

    I spent a chunk of my youth getting drunk within a few hundred feet of that place (mostly at The Peel Pub).
