    Default Drew Moor Appreciation Thread

    The most important defender we have ever had. He changed us instantly from that 2015 back line dumpster fire to one of the best in this league ever. Yes, a legend because without him, 2017 does not happen.

    A huge and I think, very much underrated part of TFC history. A legend on the pitch, and he always comes across as a really nice guy off it too. Sad to see him go, even if his chances have been limited this last year or so.

    Wish him the best, perfect addition at the time. Great guy, good player and exactly what we needed when he arrived.

    I have to say though, legend? My opinion is we need to have a higher standard than that, that's embarrassing calling him a legend. Seba, Michael and Jozy are the only legends, nobody else comes close.

    DeRo, but maybe you weren't following the team when the Miracle in Montreal happened.

    I guess it just depends how you define the term Legend. Drew was a very big part of 2016 and 2017, I'd go so far as the say the most important part defensively. Would we have made 2 MLS Cup Finals without him? Anyway, whatever word we use to describe his time here, I wish him well.

    I think legend is a perfect descriptor. All the best to Drew!

    My favorite Drew Moor goal. VV quick kicks the FK, and Moor is alert to the carom. Just a heady player.

    I was, i'm hesitant with DeRo. Canadian legend no doubt, and Montreal was a legendary moment. However did DeRo even play 100 matches for TFC? Tough one.

    An integral part of the team and he seems like such a great guy. Best of luck Drew!

    He would have if we paid him the money he deserved.

    No doubt he would have been, it was a painful time. Anyways, sorry to derail...back to appreciating Drew.

    His second half performance at Club America was one of the best individual efforts I've ever seen one of our players put in. He must have won like 20 aerial duals that game

    Embarassing? Nah...just an opinion.

    Embarrassing was the defence in 2015 - especially that Montreal playoff game (remember the Kantari slip)


    Moor changed all that - instantly.

    Moor is a legend.

    It’s easy to forget how crestfallen/shocked we all were when he couldn’t go in Guadalajara. It didn’t seem like we could win without him.

    I am surprised, not that he left the club, but rather that he left and signed somewhere else. I thought that he was going to retire a Red. He was a steady hand that our backline desperately needed. He will go down as one of the legends of this club.

    Thank you Drew for everything you have done for this club and city and I hope you have nothing but success in your future endeavors.

    Said it in another thread - I think it seems obvious that he is getting repositioned for a coaching / broadcasting career in a place that probably makes a lot more sense for his family.
