    Could you imagine he somehow ends up in Miami, then Saurez next year.

    I think he is for sure coming to MLS. Not Miami though. I'd say either one of the LA or NY teams

    Galaxy seem likely. They need to repair their image and surely a guy like Neymar would enjoy the LA night life.

    Glad for him but another poor decision on our part.

    Hmmm...now this is a new one.


    Pay out a guy this summer

    Want him back in the same summer

    Can't afford him under your salary cap

    Offseason moves happening before the offseason is not unusual.

    But rarely with a playoff team and their captain.

    To be fair, in the case of Bedoya I would expect that both sides had talked about/knew this either at the start of the year, or I'd think definitely by summer.

    Also, this is the kind of shrewd move necessary to make at a top club.

    Also also...if Wagner is sniffing around MLS we should be dangling a steak.

    Imagine actually sunsetting your players in the twilight of their careers! What a concept.

    I understand sentiment & "keep legends around".

    &

    "Results based business" has to actually be practised.

    As for Wagner, would probably have to pay him Petretta money.

    Not to sound entirely heartless, but itís my observation that most teams canít help themselves when it comes to balancing the two of these.

    Rather we keep it straight down the middle. You can honour people while not automatically cementing them into first team plans and/or have them be permanent fixtures around the club.

    Toronto-born kid who has been playing pro in Romania. Has one senior cap for Romania, but is eligible to switch to Canada in Nov 2024. Interesting one to keep track of for those interested in the national team. If TFC had signed him, would've been fun to speculate with Herdman being the ex-CMNT coach

    MLS is a tough, physical league, that emphasizes speed, and features plastic fields, grueling travel, extreme weather, and incompetent refs. - NK Toronto
