    Exactly. Bez has improved out team each year by making quality signings. I have complete faith in our front office.

    Would love to see Toronto re-invest that playoff money and take a run at Barco

    -----Altidore-Giovinco
    Barco-Vazquez-Delgado
    -------Bradley----------

    that's looking like mid table EPL quality not even joking!

    I'm hoping they get Beita to re-sign. If we do that, we'll still be deep in most positions.

    I know Edwards was a loss but I still think Ashtone Morgan can still contribute a lot at this level.

    Morgan can't cross. He has no skill his passing is horrible even ttc 2 martial at best. He's done what he could bit has no place on this team. I hope he makes me eat my words but I highly doubt it

    Morgan has plenty of MLS experience, for the role he has to play he does just fine, having Raheem last year was an unexpected luxury

    Unexpected? He came up through the system. Anyone who seen him play before his first team appearance knew he was going to be good. Malik Johnson is next up.

    He was an impact player deserving of starting on almost any MLS team, furthermore, he became 1 of 2 players involved in a trade for a Belgium national team centreback in which he was certainly more than 50% of the value. He was projected to be successful, but this successful? C'mon.

    Morgan is definitely a fantastic crosser of the ball and still a good quality backup LB in this league. I know it was 6 years ago at this point, but in 2012 I believe he led all left backs with 5 assists, all of them were crosses onto the head of Ryan Johnson / Koevermans. The issue is he has no right foot and can only play one position which is left back so his minutes are limited with Justin Morrow bossing that position

    He had a couple assists when he got big minutes in 2015 and always seems to play well when he gets a consistent run of games and hopefully that can happen this year. He will be a very good backup left back this year

    Iíll dispute that Morganís crossing is great. It feels very forced at times and itís always that high driven ball across the box regardless of whether thatís what the play calls for or not. Edwards was a far better crosser if the ball and was much more versatile with his passing and offensive play in general.


    I think Morgan (potentially) is a serviceable backup. Heís been around long enough to understand the league. Theyíll probably give that half a season to see if it works.

    Morgan is the sole remaining link from those woeful TFC teams from the past. He is the historian who reminds players of what it used to be like during the dark times and a repository of information on CCL play to tell players of what it's like to play Mexican teams. I think this is one of the reasons why the club has kept him around for so long.

    I am surprised every year that Morgan is still on the roster just because he has been here so long without getting regular first team minutes or even making the 18 on game days. Newer players like Raheem coming in and getting time ahead of him pretty much right away doesn't speak well for where he is on the pecking order yet he is still here. I guess he is probably a half decent back up at probably a very low price tag so they keep him around just in case the injury bug hits bad especially now that Raheem is gone so that helps his case this season. No idea how he is progressing as a player because we almost never see him play.

    Morgan was injured most of last year. He didnít have a chance for first team minutes.

    I would take Victor Vazquez's advice on playing Mexican teams over Morgans - so that's not a reason to keep him around.

    I do agree with him being a crazy old historian who hangs out in front of the training grounds screaming and rambling at players about what it was like in the dark days.

    I remember once that I saw Morgan sub on for Giovinco and I thought to myself, "This has got to be the weirdest substitution in the history of competitive soccer."

    Ola Kamara and Justin Meram are both available. I think Meram would be good on the wing for TFC.

    The crazy thing about the way we see Morgan is he's only 26 - it feels like it's been so long since we were horrible...

    Just for the sake of stats

    Morgan played in 6 games for TFC last year - starting 3.

    Stats for the year for the whole team

    I still think he can succeed as an attacking wing back, back in the Koeverman days I remember him delivering some great crosses.

    Its too bad his injuries have slowed him down, if he can get healthy I would like to have him as a super sub off the bench to harass players on the wings, kind of like a Rickets.

    He's more like an "ordinary" sub, not a "super" sub. Rickets is a super sub.

    How would Meram fit in a 4-4-2 diamond or 3-5-2? He's a wide forward/winger who likes to cut in from the flanks. And he's not going to be a wingback.

    Can't Mearm also play as a CAM?

    Morgan showed some quality in his limited minutes last year.

    I definitely think Morgan is on the bubble if we spend the 2.8M in TAM.

    I have faith in Vanney on Morgan. If Morgan deserves to be in the 18, he will. If not, not.

    I hope we can keep him.

    It's good to have some cheap Canadian subs, It's probably played a reason in our success. He's a decent back up LB.
