That is not a good look for a father, not at all.

    It's not just the public calling out of another player by name and spending more time directly talking about what he did vs his son, but how absurdly poor the excuse was, that are telling here.

    Nobody else got excuses like that made for them in a post match presser to my knowledge.
    not sure how you've got this so wrong.

    he was asked about MB overall game and brought him losing the ball leading to a goal up.

    this is basically as close as he's gotten to blaming anyone for costing a goal all season, probably bc he holds his son to higher standard. bono, westberg, priso, o'neill, macnaughton, thompson, chung, mavinga, salcedo have all made fuck ups leading to goals this year (probably more tbh) and not been named personally in post match interviews (to my knowledge, i do watch most the interviews).

    this clip proves the opposite point that you are trying to make.

    It only does if you live in a fantasy land.

    Want to walk me through the thought process on how you'd look at that goal and find any culpability on Pozuelo at all, never mind enough to spend more time on him than his son, and more directly?

    Good news here:

    Goalkeepers Alex Bono and Quentin Westberg, defender Doneil Henry and midfielder Noble Okello will be out of contract at the end of the year and will not return to TFC for the 2023 campaign. Henry remains under contract with MLS after LAFC waived him on July 3, 2022, and he will be eligible to go through Waivers again.

    you have to be living in a complete fantasy to watch that and believe that he was deflecting blame.

    he was the one who talked about it! didn't have to.

    your pathological hatred of one of the best players this club has ever had is disturbing.

    anyways im muting you as your hatred of MB makes everything you say not worth listening to.

    anyways onto actual news, looks like there's the possibility of mavinga returning on lower $$. would be decent, depending on the number.

    other than that, no real surprises.

    If you ever unmute I'll be waiting patiently for you to run me through the thought process on assigning any culpability to Pozuelo for that goal

    Okello is a surprise, but he was absolutely invisible in every game he played this season. Bono finally leaving is bittersweet. He is so handsome and tall. But, really sucks.

    if mavinga comes back at like 300-450 Kish that'd be nice. he has his moments and is clearly a positive presence in the dressing room.

    Two Keepers going has to be the least shocking decision of this off season. The only thing surprising is that they didn't make it all three.

    Edit: I see Ranitsingh still is in contract next year. That explains it.

    Also wondering if the seemingly unfireable GK coach is still sticking around?

    I like Mavinga. He wasn't doing well when going through those family issues but he's been solid since.

    the lack of auro decision is interesting.

    can someone who understands this stuff better explain why they wouldn't make a decision yet?

    could it be bc they could potentially sell him if they exercised the option?

    Joseph you can never get through to some of these guys , I admire your patience, I clearly remember that play and watched it several times after Bob said it was Pozuelo mistake, someone would have to be smoking some good shit and be high as hell to blame Poz and clear Michael Bradley of any fault. Keep up the great comments , you clearly are the most intelligent contributor to this site in my humble opinion.

    he never said it was a pozuelo mistake though.

    that part is completely fabricated. made up. invented.

    Santos had a purchase option on him, that might be why

    I will be very interested to see how they approach the GK market, do they go the MLS veteran or international route. Also will they have a clear cut #1 going into the pre-season or will the job be won during it; that will also dictate the type of signings they do and how much is spent. With the November World Cup have a few emerge that they could get. They just have to avoid something similar to the Rais Bolhi disaster that Philly had after they signed him following his stellar performance for Algeria in the 2014 World Cup.

    I am high on Luka Gavran, he has great size and knows how to use it. Has great shot stopping abilities. After a year at TFC II and hopefully in my eyes a backup role with the first team the future is bright for him in my eyes, hopefully the FO sees it the same way.

    They won't, he barely plays and has been beaten when he does. Not up to that league.

    Bono and Mavinga alone should save us enough money to sign three or four decent players.

    westberg wages are also shockingly high for the backup GK position (313K).

    870K a year for the GK we've been getting over the past couple years is shocking.

    Ali Curtis should be brought back, publicly shamed, and fired again for signing that Luke Singh contract.

    This is all-time embarrassing. What the hell was he thinking?

    Yes you are correct Bob never says the word “fault “ but the insinuation is that Michael does nothing wrong and Pozuelo does, if you don’t see that watching the replay then I suggest you pick another sport, in my humble opinion

    for your thoughts.

    insinuation is funny when he said MB lost the ball and would be kicking himself as a result. if you take that he blamed pozuelo based on that literal statement i suspect your hearing is being clouded by intense and irrational hatred.

    but please, respond in the BB/MB conspiracy theory thread as this drivel is clogging up this thread.

    He saw raw athletic talent, which Luke has a ton of, and translated that to "he'll be great."

    He's just a self-deluded flim-flam artist, he really is. He was a highly talented college player then found being a U.S. college striker doesn't really mean much in world football, and yet has managed to be repeatedly pay the price of failure by being promoted.

    To be fair, I understand Singh improved a lot playing regularly in the CPL, albeit frequently out of his depth there, too. He might be a professional centre half in a decade or so.

    luke singh at LB vs chiacgo last year (in a game we miraculously managed to win) was the most inept professional appearance i've ever seen from a TFC player.

    4 year contract was criminal from curtis.

    Isn't Mavinga also guaranteed more than a million? Something like that.

    That's $1.9M free already.

    Not that they have a lot of wiggle room: A starting goalie, two central defenders, a starting striker, a defensive midfielder. Five players will eat that money and a little more, I imagine.

    Oh yeah. It was almost like he'd never even watched the game before. He had no idea where to position himself and wound up closer to a central position. I remember two Fire players teaming up to bring the ball into the corner, then looking up sort of puzzled when they realized NO ONE was covering them.
