  1. Ciman has been dreadful in the games that I have watched. A competent CB should not be costing you a goal a game due to poor decision making.

    TFC 2019 Season

    It is not very often that a goal causes me to stand up, put my hands on my head, and yell "What was that?!?" but that chip shot over the keeper from a dead stand still inside the 18 yard box by Pozuelo made me do that. I'll be honest and say I had no idea who this guy was and questioned TFC's judgement in signing him as the new DP but this performance pretty much shut me up. Guess that is why I watch the games at home and am not in TFC management. His passes were sublime too. Hopefully he can keep this type of level of play for the rest of the season (if that is humanly possible).

    TFC 2019 Season

    Do we even know what caused this whole situation to start?
  4. Since they were playing New England, perhaps Akinola could have had a brief discussion with Teal Bunbury and asked Teal how things worked out for him.
  5. I was thinking more politically.
  6. I would imagine Larin has dreams of playing for one of the big clubs of Europe. He likely saw moving from the MLS to Turkey as a step in that direction, so I don't blame him for taking the opportunity. Besiktas is not Barcelona, so I would imagine he viewed himself as having a good chance to crack the starting lineup consistently. Also, I'm assuming he got a pay raise, so he likely viewed this as win-win, with the exception of living in Florida vs. living in Turkey. Hutch seems to be doing fine though.
  7. This. Minor soccer is a series of fiefdoms with busy bodies overseeing their territory who spend their days rule lawyering. One of the greatest days in my soccer administrative life was when my league got rid of the player card requirement and just used drivers licenses to prove your ID. Nothing says fun like having some cranky old lady denying your players card as valid because one guy's face in his photo is slightly off centre from the front. These aren't passports lady!
  8. Will those national team games make up for the ones they missed in the summer of 2018? 😮
  9. So when TFC they were bringing in a player with a recognizable name in his prime, did they really mean Pozuelo? Or is he not a DP and is more a Vazquez replacement?
  10. I don't see how Alejandro Pozuelo has the name recognition that TFC was talking about earlier.
  11. Peter Crouch? He's got the dance moves.
  12. He could also end up taking a pay cut to play in the CPL with the understanding that he will be a coach afterwards. Then he gets fired as a coach when ownership decides to clean house and "move in a different direction" with their coaching staff. Neither is without its risk.
  13. He does like the pyro, so that would make a lot of the TFC supporters groups happy.
  14. I'm not as up to date on the CPL as I should be, so perhaps someone here can help me out with a question on DeJong. I did a quick search of MLS salaries and it looks like he was in the 150,000 range in MLS. What would he be looking at at the CPL level? I'm assuming it would be less. Would it be enough for someone to live on in the Victoria area? He could love the area but he still needs to earn a living.
  15. It has to be a striker. If Altidore could guarantee you that he would play in 90% of your regular season, then maybe you could go out and get a DP attacking mid, but the chances of Altidore doing that is slim.
