Jayden Nelson

Personally, I hope Nelson is loaned out to a CPL side to get consistent playing time.  That is what he needs: consistent playing time in a professional environment where if he performs well for half a season, he can be recalled if minutes are available to him with TFC.  Rutty is probably fine with playing consistently at League One with TFCII.

I think a half-season loan could be good. Based on his play for Canada he is ready for TFC right now.

It looks like TFC won't bring a DP until summer. The window closes in a wk IIRC.

Considering that, I think minutes are on the table to start the year. Endo, Gallardo, Schaffleburg are the other options and I think Nelsen can sneak in there somewhere.

He is only 17, so I would give him a chance until the summer (to get aquianted with first team life) and if a DP winger comes they can asses who should go on loan or even if anyone should go on loan.

I think they need to assess it in the pre-season.  If he is going to get quality minutes, keep him.  If they don't think he is quite ready, loan him.  The main thing is he needs to play (but also in an environment conducive to his skills).

I imagine thats what they'll do with him only with TFC2.  Hanging around with senior club etc, ready to get called up for V-cup, no messy loan.  Guys like Petrasso, Hundal and Srbely need to get out of TFC2 and test the waters in CPL.

The window doesn’t open until February 7 and is open until May 1. 
 

As for Nelsen I do think he should stay with TFC for now.  He hasn’t even broken into the second team fully.  Once he can excel there but maybe can’t break into the first team a CPL loan might be nice.

I would like to see TFC go with a 4-2-3-1 line up with the three being the all-Canadian Triple -J line of Jacob, Jahkeele and Jayden.

Or they could go with a 4 man midfield, quadruple-J adding Jonathan Osorio. Too bad Jay Chapman isn’t around to make it Quintuple-J, not to mention Jordan Hamilton could have made it a sextuple Canadian J front six.

As for Julian Dunn.....ok I will stop now.

Besides Nelson, the only players brought into Toronto FC so far this season are Jahkeele, Rocco & the 4 draft picks.  I suspect Toronto FC will likely bring in another player or two before the season starts but preseason performances may determine if its needed.  There are definitely some minutes up for grabs.  Particularly when I saw Benezet go for money, I suspected Nelson would be signed to the first team.  

2019 Toronto FC season

Benezet - 13 total games (joined in July). 

Moor - 18 total games

Chapman - 18 total games

Morgan - 13 total games

Telfer - 1 game

No Champions League this spring but will be playing in the Leagues Cup in the summer so there is lot of opportunity for some of the new  players and some fringe players such as Shaf, Okello etc.
