Jordan Hamilton

This is the full game against Pittsburgh. Jordan's goal is at 14:25. Also, the league counted an assist for him in the second goal (18:50). I wouldn't, it was a shot saved by the keeper. He had also another assist (48:00). That one was impressive.

Slightly off-topic, but I've read from Charleton's main blogger and others that Wilmiington is one of the stylistically worst teams in the league: pure lump-it-up 4-4-2 and dirty to boot. Wonder if Toronto will try and find a different affiliation next year or try and work with the club to play a bit more technically.

Why would they do that?  It fits into the way Ryan Nelsen plays perfectly.  

 

All joking aside, last game I watched they seem much more interested in keeping the ball than TFC currently is.  This figures to be a one year stop gap until they get their own farm team.

Jordan continues to prove his worth at Wilmington. Yesterday he started, played 90 minutes and tied the game when Chicago Fire Reseves were leading 1 - 0. The final score was 2 - 2. He has now 4 goals and 2 assists in 7 games played (334 minutes).

 

Video of the goal (starts at 1:22:30):

 

FYI, Roberts also played 90 minutes and Aparacio played the last 14 minutes.

PDL+, maybe. European loan?

This was what I was thinking too. The seasons tend to be shorter in North America, so a training stint elsewhere after the season may be good for hamilton. I wonder if Nelson would ever take advantage of his Wellington contacts in the A league to get young tfc players experience playing in a county's top division?

From soccerway, Trofense has already 8 forwards, the youngest player is 17 and the older 24 years old, and Hamilton will be the ninth. Yesterday they won 1 - 0 in the Portuguese cup. Their first second division league match starts on August 9.

If Jordan gets playing time it's a definite positive step for him. 

 

So this loan would make him unavailable for the CONCACAF U20 championship, I guess. :(

That training ground (or stadium?) looks pretty ghetto. You could really mistake that for a club in Uruguay or something. 

 

But at least the grass looks nice! :)

 

I've seen photos of the stadium and they look half decent considering the level. I'm too lazy to dig them up.
