    If we don't get a striker this window....playoffs are lost.

    My question though: are better strikers for what we want to pay for one (not a DP from what we've hear) easier to get now or in January?

    good question.

    i'd take finishing 11th and not making the playoffs if it meant getting a really good striker in for next season who may not be available now...

    also i don't think they bring prince back.. feel like they need to bring in 2 9s.

    multiple teams have 2 strikers better than our best one. some teams have 3.

    Looking at the leading scorers in MLS... You either gotta spend money to get a goal scorer or get lucky and trade some GAM and pray for the next Brian White.

    we'd probably have about 15 more points this season.

    Agree. IMO, at least +10/12 points; 5th/4th in the EC standings territory.

    Agree. After the early hope, that realization is beginning to sink in and set fast for me. Does, though, make me wish that Manning was at least still around for the next 18 months at TFC. Needed him as the convenient scapegoat, having asserted himself by doubling down and going all in on the Italian experiment; a la Miami/MLS template. TFC could have signed both Bonaventura and Balotelli. What an executive contract ending ‘out with a blaze of glory’ sight that could have been to behold. The ensuing pitch mayhem and probably locker room disfunction could have been epic; at ‘why always us’ and ‘are you not entertained’ levels.
