    Default TFC in-season player movement thread

    Post your facts and rumours here.

    To start: according to Kurtis Lawson, they are planning to have some more players picked up in the summer transfer window, so they will keep at least 1-2 spots open.

    I'd prefer same single thread for ease of real estate on the board and dedicated source.

    Now back to topic. in-season player movement.

    holy shit, after looking at his wiki, ty's only made 70 appearances for all clubs in all competitions and he's 28 years old!!

    In February 2008, Harden announced his retirement after only one season as a professional soccer player, deciding instead to work for a charitable organization and to finish college at the University of Washington[1]

    ^ sorry, i will try noy to do it in the future.
    if you scroll up you can find some transfer/rumour info, but it seems winters pretty content for the moment and looking for depth. might be quiet unless a gem comes knocking.

    Spanish newspaper AS is reporting today that TFC, along with Kansas City and LA, are in the hunt for Spanish CB Michel Salgado, last of Blackburn.

    I know this has been reported previously.

    Isn't he a right back? Or can he play at CB? I'd much rather they go after a natural CB.

    Can't see it happening, awful awful player, God knows how he gets into Blackburn's team. Wouldn't come cheap either.

    Colour me unsurprised if true. This kid was a draft pick last year so there had to be something to him if he stuck around for so long even if he didn't have a deal. Someone remember what position he plays? This would make extra sense if he's able to go in defence giving the Frings situation.

    He seemed more of a defensive mid judging from the Disney tourney.

    Interesting:
    “They said they were very satisfied with my performance, that they really like me, but that due to the roster, it wasn't going to be possible right now,” Orozco told MLSsoccer.com on Monday.
    I guess TFC really wants to leave a spot open, or two if Emory counts as an off-budget player. It's a shame, I was a fan of Orozco but I suppose attack isn't the biggest need right now. Maybe 2013!

    I'm not sure I'd describe Salgado as an "awful awful player"! How could a anyone who has played over 250 games for Real Madrid be an awful player? He's clearly got some talent! But, I'd be more worried about his age rather than his skill level, at 36 years old, he's not going to be a top player for much longer!

    I think everyone was expecting it, glad the deal is done. Despite our difficult circumstances right now, we have a great set of young players right now.

    I agree. However I wish we were starting to mold some sort of replacement for Frings. Our game depends so heavily upon him, and injuries aside the guy isn't going to be playing until he's 38 for us.

    So a TFC supporter walks into a restaurant, a waiter asks to take his order, and he replies...

    "I'll have a Burgos Jr. with Frei(s), a side of Frings, a chicken Cordon bleu, and a Cann of Kocic all served on a Silva Plata please".

    Our backline needs some speed in the middle to balance out Aceval and chase down balls the opposition is trying to play in behind... No more room for slow guys in their mid 30's.

    Frings is playing back there as a "best of a bad situation" kind of thing and he does an amazing job. But if you're about to put something in the shopping cart, do it without the limitations. We need to continue to push into south america to uncover talent.

    Awesome! Personally I would prefer Lambe Cordon bleu though, rather than chicken.

    Toronto FC Should Break the Bank to Try and Land Del Piero
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...land-del-piero

    I would gladly dump JDG in order to land ADP. That's despite the fact that I still like JDG despite some disappointing performances.

    TFC should be bringing in players like this. We need defenders who are slightly lesser quality in a top league, let's focus on getting guys who are solid, if unspectacular, and can keep the ball out of the net. If we look hard enough we should be able to find guys who fit this mould, who won't require a DP salary (DP Salaries are being handed out WAY too easily right now. Barry Robson, Vancouver? c'mon)
