    I'm glad to hear that. I would like to see what he can get out of this team with a proper preseason.

    "He's let me get on with my job, and I appreciate the fact that he hasn't interfered with the team. He's not told me what players to pick."
    Carver revealed he's already sat down with Johnston and talked about what they plan to do to strengthen the roster for next season.
    "We're already planning for when this season comes to an end about where we're going, what we’re going to do and how we're going to recruit," Carver explained.
    "It's important that we don’t react to the situation now and bring in new people just for the sake of it. That's why we're thinking long-term and about next season."
    That's not to say Carver has thrown in the towel on the current campaign.
    Also good to hear for those saying Mo made all the signings and shit.

    I agree, let's see how he does with a full MLS season under his belt. Now that the shock of how totally fucked this league is, is most likely wearing off

    Best news to hit TFC after a week of crap from the MLS office, this should be a busy off season maybe enough to keep the Leafs off peoples minds..haha
    A couple of good signings should make the off season shorter....

    I doubt that.

    I'm starting to think that about 60-65% of the people on this forum are mindless drones, who hate the team and themselves.

    OK but I wonder if we should do an "open letter" type thing about his propensity to call players out in public. I have always wanted him to stay, but just cringe when he takes players apart in the press conferences

    He's done it with Velez today - sure it's deserved, but that's not the point, there was no need to air this in public.

    It may be refreshing, but it's divisive.

    ya, i think he'll be better next year with a year's experience. you can't coach MLS the same way you coach over in England. As you say, I think he's finally adjusting to what needs to be done in MLS. It has its own quirky, weird reality. He'll also have much better knowledge now of his opposition's tendencies. He'll know what kind of quality you need to succeed here.

    This is good news.
    I'm positive that he will not go on holidays during the off season.
    I have a feeling that next year will be a solid season for our beloved TFC

    I'm actually not crying. I find this news as another piece to what has been a comical season. why end it today?

    Anyways, I don't care who the coach is, I just want TFC to succeed. So hopefully, Carver does turn it around next year (can't get anyworse right)

    Like I said I hope he turns it around. But do me 1 favour. Please keep this post because I have a feeling you'll be crying next season

    One game for Newcastle and 4 for Leeds if I recall correctly. He was also an Assistant manager at Luton Town before us.

    In Carver We Trust! I love it that the banner was mentioned!

    Good on the team and good on JC!

    And you look like a songwriter to me, Carts!

    As for the news regarding Carver, it will be positive to have one less potential contoversy surrounding the team as they go forward. I concur with the general consensus in that JC deserves another year to steer the ship back on course with a solid foundation next season.

    That will be music to the ears of Toronto fans who unfurled a huge sign reading "In Carver We Trust" during Saturday's 3-1 home loss to Chivas USA.

    I wont say anything beyond this...

    What a friggin joke. 'In Carver we trust'? Youve got to be joking me. The guy would rather bitch and moan about MLS' rules than deal with em and improve the team. Like every successful manager in this mickey mouse league.

    so whats your plan then? Get rid of him? Hire someone else, as the revolving door for players continues so will the door for managers. Where would that put us in 3 years from now?

    Its sooo easy to get rid of people but there is a price to it down the line.
