    TFC CCL 2019

    The boys at MLS have indicated that as the roster currently stands TFC are the least talented group representing MLS. However, they do feel TFC have the easiest road to the final. If we can hang in there and get Pozuelo we may have a chance to repeat last years run. It all gets going tomorrow against the Panama champs who have already played 4 games during their season and have 10 points in those games. It will be interesting to see how Vanney plays this game. We have a lot less attacking talent and I don’t think he can afford to play a b-side in this game. I expect a somewhat dull affair and TFC getting a 1-0 win.

    Should Canadian MLS Teams Switch to CPL?

    The MLS teams are needed right now to give opportunities to the higher caliber CMNT players not based in Europe. CPL will be great for allowing young and almost made it Canadians to play professionally and perhaps get to the quality where some will play on our men’s national team. We are decades away from having the bulk of our team coming from the CPL, if ever. Right now we need The MLS. TFC’s payroll is north of 20 million, CPL will be 1?? Until that gap narrows significantly we need the big 3 where they are if we want Canadian soccer to improve.

    Never a huge Ciman fan but he was on the MLS11 previously and reporters were saying he was at that level when he left for France. Ciman healthy and playing regularly will be way better than Zavaleta or Hagglund or Bradley at CB. Mavinga and Vasquez were I think our most impactful injuries last year and in spite of all the bs with losing our offence and targeting guys we can’t sign easily, we should still be more competitive with a healthy back 3 with Moor being able to play some role. Still need to sign some firepower.

    I hope your prediction rings true because he is the only proven MLS level goal scorer we have. Not sure Osorio will score at the level of last year and if he proves capable other teams will be able to key on him more with no Giovinco to worry about. Don’t know enough about Boyd. Hope Hamilton can prove people wrong. But if Jozy isn’t healthy we are doomed to be in a lot of 1-0 games. Let’s hope Ciman and Mavinga can play a large majority of the games so we come out on the right side of that score.

    That lineup does not instil fear of any sort, except in TFC fans. We don’t win any hardware with that lineup except maybe the Canadian Championship. Ali needs to make something happen and soon.

    Made the best of a crappy situation. Boyd doesn’t inspire much confidence. Need to spend some of the departed salaries and soon. Flaming out of the CCL and being shit in MLS is a recipe to become totally insignificant in the TO sports landscape and they will be hard pressed to find someone with Gio’s appeal to the masses. Ali and Manning need to get something done that is significant.

    TFC 3.0 not looking good. Better do something soon or we are falling back into the abyss.

    Sorry I didn’t realize you were related.

    In a one striker scenario I would start Cav and bring David in. In a 4-4-2 or variation with 2 strikers they would both be on the field ahead of Larin. Cav’s experiences in Mexico and South America right now trump David’s youthful athleticism for me in a one striker set up. Experience is a great teacher.

    Getting very nervous that things are going to be a disaster this coming year and Giovinco if he leaves will be the final nail in the coffin. Ali was told the roster was set and he would ease into the job. Now he is in the position to replace 2 or 3 of our best players four weeks before the season starts. Those two glorious years will start to disappear from the memory. On the bright side tickets will be had easier.

    In a couple years? Months? Right now give me Cavallini. David has lots of upside but I would prefer Cav when we start playing the hex teams on a regular basis. David has some pace and can come in a la Ricketts against tired defenders if that’s what the game calls for.

    Please start him every game anywhere we play. Cavallini is our best striker.

    This is good no doubt. But not excellent and once again we have to battle in CCL and we will need second options for at least 7-8 of those guys. As we haven't increased the quality of the reserves - actually the subs really have been downgraded and last year didn't work out very well I am really hopeful that they spend some money very soon and add a little more to the club. Currently it seems like last year all over again minus Victor who was one of the most important if not the important person on the squad.

    This is not shaping up to be a run at the treble. Very disappointing incident and now really the team is behind the 8 ball. Need some major pieces to replace a couple of the departed and some depth up front. Hope Ali is up to the job. The signings from TFC2 are not ready to get major minutes in this league from my limited observations of them last couple of years. I really hope we get some news to be excited about in the next couple of weeks.

    Need some quality and depth. Hope that allocation move is with a specific big move in mind. And as MLSE is not shy to spend the extra cash may give us an improved signing.
