    Default 2016 Preseason

    Anyone know when training camp is supposed to start?

    Was towards the end of January last year I think, so that would mean they should be starting in a couple weeks.

    Next friday camp opens, just from twitter it appears a number of players are already around.

    They will be missing Bradley, Altidore, Johnson and hopefully Osorio for part of camp since they are with their national teams.

    This is one of the quietest offseasons in terms of details I seem to remember compared to years past when you knew they would either be playing in Charleston, Orlando or even Turkey. It seems they must be doing their own thing as most of the pre-season tournements have their teams. On the side note, the Carolina Challenge Cup even had to put off being played this year due to inabilty to get 3 MLS teams to play in it.

    Going to Charleston was a great road trip because the area is so nice to visit at that time of year (even if TFC was terrible during that era). It's a pity it's not going on any more. However, it's probably a function of how the league is changing for the better more than anything else.

    Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal should get together and do a Canadian preseason tourney of their own. They would have to hold it in the US still since they would need proper weather but I think something like that would be cool. Wherever they go in the US they could get the local NASL team or whatever to host it and play. Basically like Charleston did....but a Canadian edition of MLS teams. That would be cool for us Canucks to see.

    Not sure if the bottom means we're going to Bradenton again this year.

    I don't think its a matter of the league better. MLS preseason is what it is. The approach to the preseason for TFC has changed each a new coach and GM has come in, so hopefully the Reds at least have some consistentcy there with Tim and Greg. For example Aaron Winter was not completely pleased with having to trek over to Turkey for part of the preseason in his first year with the club but that was a committment Preki made prior to his departure.

    Going to LA next week according to this http://www.torontofc.ca/post/2016/01...on-clint-irwin

    The Reds will travel to Los Angeles to kickoff the preseason next week.

    I wonder if that's so they can get some time with Jozy and Bradley at the US Camp?

    I noticed that too. First time they are going to California for preseason. This is also the first year that they didn't have some kind of preseason tourney announcement by now is it not? All of the other years they announced the various tourneys ahead of preseason giving fans time to book flights/hotels. TFC even organized a package with travel agents when they did the Disney tourneys. This is a new era I guess....making solid moves and not being too splashy with the press. Keeping preseason plans mostly under wraps. Hopefully we still get to see some preseason games online.

    Seems kind of odd to go all the way west coast when the first two games of the season are on the east coast. Since Seba's with Pirlo I assume that NYCFC is out there as well. I wonder if MLS FO asked the clubs to train out there for media exposure and to plug LAFC.

    He won't be taking Seba's 10 or his buddy Bradley's 4. He's been 8 but he may take 7.

    Whateva. I can wait to get the jersey till his second match.

    Would have been a good choice for the name on the back, in years gone by.

    Only way that would make sense is if he takes Hagglund's #6. I don't think he's taking Bradleys 4, Cheyrou's #8 or Giovinco's #10.
    All attacker numbers are open right now. Could see him taking 7 or 11.

    That was my thought, he would get #6. I can see him in 11, but why wouldn't he have been given it already, he's been on our roster almost a month. I could also see him in #16, with Gomez moving to #9, like he wore for the US

    Speaking of jersey numbers, Simonin is #13 now. A bit of an indication of how high management is on him... could even be #3 on the CB depth chart in their eyes.
