  1. Impact traded Lovitz to Nashville for $50K of GAM & $50K of TAM (but not Nsaliwa) & a 2020 International Roster spot.
  2. March & June windows for next matches (presumably friendlies):
  3. A bold choice by Herdman to go with a more offensive line-up and formation on the road than the one that worked so well at home (where both of our goals were scored on counters in that game) but it did not pay off. I guess the people wanting to see Canada play attacking soccer will take some solace from that, but it was a gamble that didn't work and when we only needed a draw to win the group, that is a shame. In fairness to Herdman, a few players individually had woeful performance, with Cavallini being the most disappointing. And this was still a US team for the taking, because they weren't that impressive - we had to switch off to let them score and we looked the more talented but mistake prone team. But onwards and upwards. No use in dwelling upon it though, start scheduling some friendlies pronto. I liked what I saw from Eustaquio in his debut. Still good fight by the team and much to be encouraged about.
  4. To be fair to Herdman, he mentions it only because the radio hosts specifically asked him about whether this had happened because they heard about the fight in the England team camp, rather than this being a situation where Herdman decided to volunteer the info to make himself look good.
  5. I hope they play him in the middle rather than trying to convert him into a winger the way TFC kept doing.
  6. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/11/12/toronto-fc-prez-well-shop-strike-partner-altidore-winter-window
  7. Laryea is usually more potent as a right back and he wasn't playing that spot last night as Auro was still on the field. When he plays further up the field, the opposition seems to be able to stick more guys against him (and he usually doesn't have another player making the overlapping runs for him that he makes for other players). In the end the team did better than I think anyone was expecting in what started out as a re-building year, but that lack of depth at striker position is ultimately why they weren't champions, even though I agree that they have now outplayed Seattle in 3 MLS Cups but only came away with one them. Need to use that open DP slot on another attacker methinks.
  8. I figured if I did, most of the words would get censored anyway. I suspect there would be more people posting if the team had won.
  9. Liam Miller becomes the 2nd Canadian to say that Doneil Henry is the last player they would want to pick a fight with:
  10. Let's all hope that if Roldan illegally obstructs Osorio again on Friday for the US against Canada, this time they actually f'ing call it.
  11. That could be it. Even the MLS site itself is covering the CPL, making their broadcast partner's reluctance look even more incongruous: https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/11/02/forge-fc-tops-calvary-fc-first-ever-canadian-premier-league-final
  12. Close to the same for me but I was more impressed with Pecile and Priso than Franklin.
  13. That VAR call back was disgusting. It can’t be clear and obvious if it takes four minutes and you don’t have an angle from along the line
