    Love the snark in all these - a useful antidote and reminds me a lot of non-league punditry in England.

    Here's what Brogan Engbers is doing: (from my post about the League 1 Ontario game Vaughan vs Windsor TFC).


    Windsor's record falls to 1 win, 6 losses, 0 ties for 3 points. They are currently fifteenth.

    I never thought Windsor nor FC London were particularly close to the MLS Toronto FC team
    (that's at the League 1 Ontario level) when they signed their sponsorship deals. It was the 14 year old
    and under kids I expected TFC would be more interested in for coaching and their academy programs.
    Today I thought I recognized the Windsor back up goalie. Yes once I had the game sheets I did
    realize it was Brogan Engbers. He played for Toronto FC III (who were in this league since the
    beginning but at the end of last season joined the USSDA system). I asked him after the game because
    the next progression would be the USL Toronto FC II team. He said he can't play for them as changes
    to the Academy system and TFC II mean he'd be on the same team as professional contracted players
    and would lose his eligibility to play for his university team. (I looked it up later to remind
    me it was Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia co-founded by evangelist Jerry Falwell). He could
    join amateur Windsor TFC though so to keep in game shape he has been offered to play games--but road
    games. Windsor is quite a distance but the team is usually in the GTA every second week as most
    of the teams are here.

    Bunk - Anderson seems legit. Hopefully he makes the first team next year he looks like he could help TFC.

    It seems to me that there is a huge value gap between the teams from USL Chanpionship and USL League 1, probably more than between the MLS and USL Chanpionship.

    Prior to this season TFC II was usually dead last, or if not, one of the worst teams in the USL, now they are a high-mid standings team, with a real shot to playoffs.
    Is the team's game/value increased since last year? Maybe, just maybe, but if so, just a little bit.

    This is a better level for TFC II. Almost every player on the team besides Bunk-Anderson and the keeper is 22 or much younger. Asking them to compete against men in USL in years past was tough, not to mention they were poorly coached (I have little faith in Jason Bent's tactical acumen).

    This season we appear to be pretty well-organized, no longer a tire fire defensively, and a lot of the kids are taking a solid step forward in their play (Mohammed, Peruzza, Srbely). I'm also curious as to how Adolfo Ovalle is viewed by our management... we're not short on young CMs with promise between Fraser and Okello but Ovalle controls games quite efficiently for TFC II from what I've seen. Never heard of the guy before we picked him up but he signed a Homegrown deal with RSL in 2015 back when he was 17 and he even played in 6 MLS games for them. He's 22 now... maybe we end up on the good side of a Mark-Anthony Kaye situation here.

    Looking forward to Friday, heading up to the BMO Training Ground for the match vs. Lansing. Have really enjoyed the matches I have attended their this season. Will be interesting to see how they finish out the season, hopefully securing a top four position, earning a playoff spot.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!
