Not scientific but anyone can take a look at their overall rating in fifa?
Cordova is 66 OVR

Pisanu is 66 OVR

Couldn't find the other two

I never really understood why Di Vaio was taking all the free kicks including corners. I understand that he is shorter but surly he is technically better in the air (an ground) then almost everyone on the Impact. You think you would want a player like him in the box...

Am I the only one who, when seeing NDS, MB and Joey immediately think of this:



By the way, I don't mean this in a derogatory sense. I just mean that they really look like the usual tightly knit Italian family (Mauro is NDS's Brother in Law and Joey really look like a godfather)

It's 100% guaranteed that we're getting somebody, we'll just have to see how lucky or not that we will be. Our current squad + Stankovic or Aquilani is definetely a playoff worthy team.

Maybe he is friends with some of our guys, dunno.

He was a great player, probably still has some in the tank, but do we need another forward? I think wingers should be the priority and Toni is no winger...

Are you questioning his pace?

Toni would be nice as a poacher in front of MDV, but I'm not sure his natural strength can endure a full MLS season at his age.

Luca Toni is way too slow to be a poacher.

Also, does anyone else prefer young and unknown talent versus 35+ past their peak players? We need guys that won't think they are better than the team.

I think any real fan of the team prefers young unknown talent to quickly fading old stars. However, Joey is trying to solidify the fanbase and brining in "names" will do just that.. for a while! Of course, the "names" won't keep butts in the seat if they don't win games. That's where Joey and NDS might make their biggest mistake: thinking those guys can put us over the top. They are nice pieces to have, but we also need solid YOUNGER talent that will make us win.

"Names" are great on a marquee, but they don't bring you championships, talent does. These guys aren't finished, but they aren't at a level that can make them win us championships by themselves. We have talent to surround them, but we need some more, especially on the wing. One might argue that we are fine on defense with Camara, Rivas, Ferrari, Valentin, Brovsky and Iapichino next to Nesta and on offense with Wenger next to Di Vaio (and maybe Toni), but we absolutely need wingers that can create opportunities for our strikers. Felipe can create opportunities, but if he is the only playmaking option, other teams will focus on him just like they did when we played a 4-4-2 and take him away. He needs help.

Toni would be just slightly better than Corradi. I hope we dont sign him, our priority should be elsewhere. He'd be a waste of an international spot.

I don't want Toni... He thought he was too big for us.

Agree with your post. Obviously I'd love to have a guy like Stankovic or Aquilani but you'd also have to pay them DP salaries as well as a fee for their clubs since they are not free agents. (Unless the club agrees to release them for free). I was just thinking we might be better off with bargain players like how we found Felipe than a big-name.

Also, Montreal is a bandwagon city. If the Impact wins most of their games, the stadium will be packed (similar to this year's win streak when the stadium was sold out for a couple games in a row). Even if we have big-names, people don't show up to watch a losing team.

They'll show up to watch the names... for two games. Then, they'll have to win to keep people interested. But essentially, you are in perfect agreement my friend.

I loved Toni back 6-7 years ago, but since the 2006 World Cup, it's been nothing but downhill for him. I would pass

Joey Saputo ‏@JoeySaputo

Fiorentina inaugurated a new store in Florence. Met Luca Toni and Manuel Pasqual. De belles rencontres en Italie!


Manuel Pasqual is also mention.

30 years old Left Back.

Maybe he was there cause he is the captain of Fiorantina (if im right).

Even if we like or not the names at least we seem active.

Toni looks a lot better this year than I expected, he's not what he once was but he's still much better than Corradi for instance. I don't think he's worth the money though when you already have MDV, he's still not someone you want playing 90 minutes every game.

Pasqual was there because he's Fiorentina's captain yes. The Impact could use someone with his free kick skills but he's all but having a career year under Montella so it's unlikely. I wouldn't read much into this, those two are more ambassadors for Fiorentina than anything else - the longest serving player left and a club hero in Toni.
