  1. Well, not quite that simple. According to this article, "future considerations" means, TFC gets him off the books for this season and WC need to either pay up or return him for the 2015 season. WC do get a good player for this season for free though while considering him a young DP. Good deal for both I think. http://www.wakingthered.com/2014/2/27/5453604/toronto-sun-sheds-light-on-future-considerations-in-laba-trade-to
  2. Torn Achilles for Dike, out for season. I guess that the soccer gods still do not like TFC. As mentioned above, the door may be open for Hamilton to get some first team minutes. http://www.goal.com/en-ca/news/4175/major-league-soccer/2014/02/17/4627282/sources-toronto-fcs-bright-dike-suffers-another-torn-achilles-to-
  3. Mlssoccer.com states its a full season long loan. A loan deal to the World Cup would have been a waste of our time. http://m.mlssoccer.com/news/article/2014/02/14/toronto-fc-land-brazilian-international-goalkeeper-julio-cesar-loan-queens-p
  4. Julio Cesar signs with TFC. Press conference at 1pm today. http://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/julio-cesar-story/
  5. In other news, it seems Eckersley is gone to NYRB. This is a huge salary dump and opens the possibility of restructuring Laba's contract. Orr is definitely the replacement at RB. http://www.onceametro.com/2014/1/25/5345596/report-red-bulls-richard-eckersley-toronto-fc
  6. It's not that insulting. Issey has not shown much beyond what Lambe produces from my years of following him on "Canadians across the pond", CMNT or the fox soccer channel a-league games. I don't know where this "DP equivalent" tag comes from for Issey. I hope he sticks with TFC, replaces Lambe and proves me wrong, but he just hasn't shown much so far to relieve he's an improvement over Lambe. Issey was a marginal player in the a-league and the Cypriot league in the last few years. It's all I noticed.
  7. The reason I said that is because he's like Lambe, but Canadian. He'll just fill an empty spot on the bench.
  8. I agree with this move as I also consider RB one of the positions this team requires a starter at. He has a high salary making him hard to sign unless Blackburn is willing to eat up some of that cost. Another barrier is the jail time he spent in 2005. This might prevent him from getting a working visa in Canada.
  9. I see it like this with the subs in parenthesis: -------------Defoe(Wiedeman)-----------Gilberto(Dike)------------- DeRo(Lambe)----------Bradley(Bekker)--------------Rey(Osorio) ----------------------------------Laba(Hall)------------------------------ Jackson(Morgan)----Morrow(Henry)----Caldwell(Elmer/Boss)-------Bloom(Richter) ------------------------Bendik(Konopka)------------------------ I still think that the right fullback needs improvement. I think Richard E. will renegotiate his contract or he's as good as gone. Maybe one more experience center back. I'm not too comfortable with the backup options we have in our midfield. I know some guys are versatile like Jackson and DeRo, but that will leave us short in those other positions. I would like to see 2 more MLS proven versatile midfielders in those positions (not necessarily starters), but I feel TFC is stretched too far financially already.
  10. Apparently Roma has made it official that the have sold Bradley for $10 mil to MLS and that he will join TFC. http://www.goal.com/en-ca/news/4188/transfer-zone/2014/01/09/4533027/roma-announces-10-million-sale-of-michael-bradley-to-mls
  11. Good point. TFC might try to push for it now knowing what's coming. There is no transparency in this league and who knows what the deal was for 100mil NYCFC. If I paid that much, I would want more flexibility to build a team.
  12. Lex Luthor now too? How many DP spots does this team have. Laba must be payed with magic money now (allocation).
  13. I'm not in favor of regressing on the natural playing field and sharing the stadium with a sport that might as well use a plow every time it takes the field. Soccer, on anything, but grass is just terrible to watch. The average MLS player already has trouble controlling the ball, giving him the extra bounce that comes with the turf makes it extra **** to watch and play. Toronto has horrible outdoor game weather. A roof is neeeded to protect against the rain, wind and improve acoustics. I'm in favor of spreading the games around Canada, but that's not what's for debate here. I'm never in favor of promoting a sport that keeps us in a bobble and distances ourselves from the rest of the world while harming the beautiful game that the rest of the world competes in and so should we. Damn Argos, they screwed us when we needed them and now they are back for a handout like the entitled teen bitched they are. Canada has no professional league and just a handful of teams/stadia that can help us develop our players for the world stage. Corporate greed is up to screwing that up too. Make what ever press release/petition. I'll sign.
  14. Apparently TFC signed Jackson from Dallas. Right midfielder with MLS Experience. So, Alcaro Rey is not good enough for that position. http://www.torontofc.ca/news/2013/12/tfc-acquires-jackson-fc-dallas
