    TFC 2018-2019 Off-season

    That makes sense about what the new “statement” which he felt forced into making is. If it is a signed document it could be considered binding, but you would assume he would have had to have been given some extra benefits for signing. If not, it sounds a bit like the Larin situation regarding the Club option to extend his contract with Orlando/MLS.

    My original reading of that post from Pozuelo was that it was a verbal agreement, rather than an official buyout clause. Having re-read it though, it is much less clear. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

    I’ve see Bojan Krkic linked with a move to MLS. He may not be a household name, but the clubs he has played for certainly are. I think he’s just denied going anywhere, but his profile does fit the description.

    Were they ever out of fashion?

    I’m a season ticket holder too, so I will definitely be there!

    Suggesting the previous owner is a headcase, and he would still have a few allies within the club isn’t a difficult situation to imagine. On the outside, he was a big shot with the ultras too IIRC, and he apparently has a lot of supporters there. IMO that doesn’t make a comfortable day to day existence for players returning from last year. It is also possible that some players who have remained will still want out and are still affected in one way or another by the attack. I don’t know for sure, but I believe that to be likely. Just because you disagree, does not mean it couldn’t be true. Suggesting Nani may be interested in a move to have a new life experience and have one final big payday isn’t an outrageous claim. TFC has recently paid top dollar for its DPs and they may be willing to do so again if Giovonco moves on as has been suggested elsewhere. Having a different opinion doesn’t mean I am trying to be cool or to demonize the club. It simply means I am looking at this situation differently than you.

    CPL Season Schedule

    I love it. It’s interesting how one match announcement has got all of these discussions going. Plus I’m excited as I’m a season ticket holder so I get to be there for game 1!

    I thought I was the only one who saw that sign. Here I was thinking I had a special connection with the players of sporting. Next you are going to tell me other people are aware of players unilaterally rescinding their contracts because of the violence they experienced in the attack, and that it wasn’t a club insider that has told me charges are being brought against the club owner for his direct involvement.

    The sporting owner is a headcase who is believed to have participated in organizing the players being attacked inside their own training ground. While that happened before Nani arrived, with a mentalist like that having been around and likely having a number of his people inside the club, there would be no surprise if Nani feels this is a good opportunity for one more payday, a good life experience, and he should move on.

    I’ve heard Floro still talks to contacts and has a landline - the dinosaur.

    FC Edmonton launch/2019 offseason thread

    I think you are right, it is probably a bit of a personal opinion. Personally, I would like more a experienced player in goal (though an experienced centre back could organize and protect an inexperienced keeper). Maybe these guys have shown they are supremely talented though. I don’t claim to know anything about them, nor do I pretend to know more than the coaches at the club. As I’ve said, it’s just my view that this currently appears a bit risky.

    FC Edmonton launch/2019 offseason thread

    Sounds about what I was thinking, Keegan. It could be great and both could end up having long successful careers, but it is a bit of a gamble to go with two keepers who have zero pro minutes (to my knowledge anyway) when, as Keegan has said, there are a number of out of contract keepers of more known quality. All of the teams are hopefully going to kickstart many careers. A big reason why I have purchased a season ticket is because I want Canadians getting more opportunities. However that doesn’t mean the quality of decisions can’t be discussed and/or questioned.

    Whether it is accurate or not, it is more positive publicity for the league, which is always a good thing.

    I was thinking something along those lines myself. Hopefully these guys will show there really is a lot of untapped talent in Canada and that it has just needed an opportunity to take the next step up.
