    I think it's fashionable around these parts to love and adore players for their workman-like attitude, the great "heart" they put on display every weekend. But what no one is talking about is how we love and adore hard-working LOSERS.

    I think sooner or later, the current regime hopefully will see things the same way, and Terry, the utility player that he is, will become a valuable 65th minute substitute brought on to seal wins for us by shutting up shop in the midfield against opponents who are tired out and more his speed.

    Great post! about Dunfield and Toronto's love for the "Workman", while the league gets more skilled every year.



    Also was doing some research. Though I am not totally familiar with the resume of most of the midfielders we brought in, but imo none have pedigree.

    Here is a midfielder Toronto should inquire about, and if not him!.

    Somebody with an identical or better CV.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Grossm%C3%BCller



    Note: I had spied Reo-coker for us last year, but with Frings and the salary cap I never bothered to mention it.


    Honestly I am always looking for players That can "really" Improve TFC......Its like an addiction.


    Anyways I hope the Management is able to get it right this season.

    This Argentinian kid will work in the right conditions.. you need a player to play behind and in front of him. Either playing without a Right Winger and have Morgan or a Midfielder to come up the left to cross. Letting you have

    ------Koev-------
    -------Urruti-----
    Ephriam-Silva-----
    ---Ceaser-DM----
    Ek--OD--Calif--M

    Or put him in a Dero Floating Striker like position he seems to be able to pass... so if he can send the ball right, left or forward as well as making a run... particularly if he poaches missed shots and rebounds, he could provide a strong piece to the attack.

    ----------Koev---------
    Ephriam--
    Urruti---Lambe
    ----Ceaser----DM------
    Eks----OD---Calif----M-

    At that point we need a Dunfield and Lambe Replacement in the starting role. Let lambe go... and work with some of the new kids to fill the sub role.

    You then have Silva as Chivas bait, and Bekker to step into that Depth/Development role.

    Have no idea how effective any of this is.. but I'm think they are looking at some one to slot into the AM/CF hybrid spot. (They are looking for a 21 year old DeRo)

    My $.02 on Lambe, he is good and if we dump him and don't have a backup winger we are screwed. He is reasonably well priced depth.

    THANK YOU! The problem too i think is that we are so used to seeing crap on the field that anytime a "hard working" piece of crap comes by we praise it. Sorry he can run around like headless chicken as much as he want's but he's not productive at all. Like in the post says i rather have a player work half as hard but produces more than a player that likes to run around and offers nothing. People kept blabbing about our cb's last year when the biggest problem was the middle of the midfield. Now we have hall and dunfield in the middle, these 2 will hardly break up any of our oppositions plays and start any good attacks.

    Nothing to do with cash. It's all about his international status and our lack of Int. spots.

    You know we have Earnshaw on the roster, right?

    You sure about that? The person who posted it on twitter is researcher for Football Manager.

    I think I'll just ask TFC via Twitter and post whatever response I get.

    Wonder if TFC is trying to trade for an int spot or move one out before they sign Bostock, Hes been rumored to have signed here for a while now and has not.

    depends on whether SJ made a 'genuine offer' to Bostock. if SJ didn't, Toronto has a shot of signing Bostock without giving SJ a compensation

    I'm not sure that someone mistook Taylor for Ashtone - that was just a theory. I am sure however that Taylor was born in Southampton, England. I don't claim any inside knowledge but his Wiki page has no indication that he has any Canadian connection other than signing for TFC.
    Let's see what Lucky Strike comes up with.

    Hmmm. 28 year old Belgian who came through Genk's system. Hard to believe he's 28 when you see his tween looking pics on Google. Looks like Bieber's long lost brother.

    Where are you hearing this from?

    If this started from his tweet "5AM in Toronto", I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with TFC, and he isn't even here in Toronto.

    That is the name of Drake's new song. And by the looks of his twitter feed, Staelens is a big Drake fan.

    Unless someone can confirm a source for this, I have a feeling it's false.

    he also made the tweet at 3:59 AM (EST), so the 5am part was a lie!

    Enough of the Vitti arguments already. He was poor in the MLS! He may be great in South America, but he wasn't here. Some great wine just doesn't travel well! He should stay in South America where he is clearly more suited.

    I would say it was probably a bit of both. Could Vitti have played better under a different coach? Yeah probably. But equally is Vitti suited to the physical MLS? Not particularly.

    Correction: Vitti wasn't very good at TFC. He didn't play anywhere else in MLS. Many players have done far better in other MLS teams than at TFC. Especially when you give them some time to adjust & develop; find the best position for them to play; play them with other good players & allow them time to gel together -- and related to the above, when you have good coaching and management.

    He has done well in the Peruivan league, and for that fair play to him, but I am not sure playing well in that league is tearing up South America.
