    I have zero expectations and hope of post season is gone for me now....just want to be entertained. And if Insigne is still feeling anything from the last game please don't play him on the fake turf in ATL. Not worth it.

    should probably do some rotation here with playoffs all but gone.

    the same guys who have been starting every week look gassed.

    If Bono starts, then it's probably because they still think they can qualify for the playoffs and they're trying to give Bono a chance to improve his market value with a good result (remember he did have a clean sheet a couple of weeks ago). I'm assuming anyone but Bono in net means that they're planning for next season.

    He's a free agent in December, market value $0.

    It makes zero difference now who BB starts, but unless Q is still nursing his injury it would be nice to have him start.

    We should be starting an academy keeper for the last 4 games. Lets see something else.

    Between the fact that a) Bob said after Charlotte v1.0 that he and Jesus
    disagreed that his role had changed; b) He was
    left out in Miami; c) he hasn't started since and
    d) he complained about not getting any service from the Italians in
    theSpanish language news availability....

    I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to move Jimenez
    in the offseason.

    He seems a clearly better player than Ayo; you'd expect if Bradley hasn't soured on his
    personality, he'd start him against Atlanta because he's on nine goals
    for the season AND despite a four game look Ayo has accomplished little.

    If he doesn't start against Atlanta
    I'd worry once again it's BB seeing someone as "disruptive".

    i reckon that the decision to bring in a DP striker has already been made, and that jiminez will be moved as a result.

    I’d be surprised if JJ was back. And Ayo so far seems a waste of a big contract. I don’t see him working out very well in Bradley’s football club (though not to say he’ll be gone).

    Post montreal, for the first time Bradley spoke of “new players” as a way of “becoming a good team”….

    ATL will be without Martinez, who was suspended for a week for getting into a physical altercation with Pineda and flipping over the club's dinner table...

    That might actually be a negative for us - he's become a distraction.

    I have been strongly chastised in this Forum before for this notion, rode hard and put away wet to say.
    But I think Josef Martinez is a striker type we could use.
    At the right price; another reclamation.
    The HIGH-TAM Ayo and tandem to some other EURO-DP JJ.
    I think he would fit with the Italians' football'in style, experience and expectations.
    I understand he may be / is disruptive.
    Still, Kei Kamara has the reputation of an aggressive mutating cancer, and yet look what he is doing for MTL; look what he did to TO.

    So glad that Bob did a complete and thorough evaluation before he signed Jimenez

    7 goals 4 assists for martinez before the last game which was pretty much must win the rest of the way or close to it...thats rookie coach mistake #1 by pineda...hes been arguably their best offensive player and its a must win and you bench him? and when you sub him on you give him the armband...so hes your captain and been doing well offensively and its must win...funny thing is he also scored but it was too little too late and they said bye bye to playoffs...pineda shouldnt last too long there

    Nothing wrong with JJ as a MLS striker. He just lost his confidence and then the Italians lost their confidence in him. It happens.

    Giving Ayo a U22 was a way worse move.

    In agreement with your reply U&P.

    “He just lost his confidence “ really? I say a player with no pace , not a strong work ethic on the pitch and a player that can’t find space if his life depended on it, but if you want to blame confidence have at it.

    At the beginning of the season he was doing all those things and with all kids around him so yeah, I am saying confidence. He didn't get 9 goals gifted to him or in the reserves.

    What BetMGM thinks of our goalkeeping right now:
    Toronto FC to win and Atlanta United not to score

    Enjoy his last few games here as Bob will admit the folly in bringing Jimenez here and see him off

    Was not folly.
    Something has / somethings have changed.
    A decent signing at the time.
    Maybe even still now if...
    Whether he gets his mojo back with us or somewhere else, he's a solid footballer.

    Does the league still have emergency keepers on standby? Lets list Bono as injured along with Q and get one of the league reserves to step in.

    I'm so tired of seeing Bono who will not be here next year, give time to the academy prospects or get someone from the league on trial.

    This opinion is offered without having having kept requisite track of him - but hey, posting with only the slightest grasp on reality seems popular here these days! Given his production this season, his attitude (which, frankly, I’ve always liked) and the potential service he’d get here, I don’t think he’d be a bad idea.

    So says you, Jesus never played at any level in Spains national teams, best team he played at was in a pitiful Polish league, we should certainly have higher ambitions then this type of player

    It’s even more hilarious considering they’re leaving their first choice striker on his couch.

    Jeeez, are you suggesting all MLS TAM footballers must be MNT players?
    Polish League is not pitiful; although I realize it's usually ranked below MLS.
    IMHO, lots of quality and value to be discovered or had in such 'Eastern' European Leagues.

    BTW, does anyone of the community know if 'OPTIONAL' TAM is still in effect and how much more it is in addition to a teams 'REG' TAM budget allocation?
