    Looks like John Bostock has done pretty good so after TFC released him in May of the 2013 season, he went on to play for two different teams in Belgium's second tier having good seasons with each team, he got something like 16 assists in his first season in Belgium's second tier, and in his second season with a different team in the second tier scored something like 13 goals and helped his team to promotion to Belgium's top division, where he has been playing this season with the team he helped get promoted and it looks like he is again having a good season. It's good to see that things are working out for a player who at 16 debuted in the English Premiership but then never lived up to his potential and who did not look to comfortable in the MLS with TFC when he was here, but he is still young born in 1992 and who knows if he keeps his strong play up may make it back to the Premiership after so many had given up on him, a good story in the making it looks like.

    Look at Danny with the one and only Mista, both coaching at the Generan Adidas Cup in Dallas.

    I think we still take a reduced hit.

    Man, now is it that Bendik has now won 3 Save of the Week honors this year so far? I'm starting to wonder if it really was a really poor back four that was the crux of our problem, not the keeper.

    Well there's been mention of howlers in mls highlights as well. I watch him every week and it's about the same issue of inconsistency.

    Not to toot my own horn, but...

    One member of the media continuously backed Bendik as a legit top 5 'keeper in MLS.

    Save of the week and being a top 5 keep are very different things.

    A save of the week is a single moment in a game.
    being a top 5 goalie you need to have more than just a good moment here or there - distribution, communication, etc all add up to being a top 5 goalie.

    That article screams frustration to me, with him going on about how technical he is and his sour grapes about England. Unfortunately, he was a highly rated youngster who never reached his ceiling.

    He has turned down a few offers, with a son now, it's getting hard for him to just shoot off around the world for any offer that comes his way. Hard to take the family to such places as Thailiand etc.

    I put Rohan in the same category as Issey: some guys just aren't the "personality type" that coaches like. In Rohan's case, he spent too much time promoting personal appearances and not enough improving his game. Guy scored two goals that were beautiful in one game. The talent was obviously there; it's the headspace that isn't.

    Just looking happened to come across the League 1 Ontario website and noticed that former TFC player Jimmy Brennan is the head coach of Aurora in this league, does not look like he is having any kind of success with them this season, they are one of the teams at the bottom of the standings with a record of 1W 8L 2 T with 8 goals for and 33 against for a -25 +/- record ouch! I guess he would not be on any coaching list anytime soon to replace Vanney if he were to falter lol!
