Toronto Soccer Fans to Relaunch

The more observant among you may have noticed that Toronto Soccer Fans has been dormant for some time.
Various work/life changes have meant that there was insufficient time to keep this site updated to the extent that it deserved.

The Home game on Saturday was an opener in more ways than one. An Eye Opener. The passion of the crowd was fanstastic to see, and was reflected by most of the team. I am shortly relaunching this site as a suitable complement to that.

Check back soon, and any suggestions can be sent via the contact form

Pre-Season Tournament

Fri 29th Dec, 2006 2:07pm - news

Toronto FC will get a taste of two MLS opponents in a March pre-season tournament.

Toronto will get a pre-season introduction to MLS soccer in a week long tournament hosted by the A-League side Charleston Battery in March. The fourth annual Carolina Challenge Cup will see TFC do battle with MLS Cup holders Houston Dynamo and the always solid Red Bull New York in addition to the hosts. Both MoJo and Edson Buddle will have a first run against the Red Bull since departing there this year, and March will likely see Canadian DeRosario still at Houston, to the chagrin of the TFC board. NY are also one of the few teams expected to have the cash available for a significant foreign transfer in the coming month. The tournament will run from March 24 - 31 at Blackbaud Stadium in sunny South Carolina. Ticket details will be available closer to the time.

In other news, the Christmas period is typically a lull before the storm that is the January international transfer window. It has been quiet as expected, though there have been two big non-moves for MLS. Following months of speculation that they would both be bound for North American soccer, Luis Figo is off to Saudi Arabia and Paulo Wanchope is going to FC Tokyo. A shame for those of us who would like to see this sort of talent in the league, but frankly the paycheques are far too good in these money rich leagues for MLS to compete. These players looking elsewhere for late career paydays is not a bad thing - it was a big part of the collapse of the NASL back in the day. Still, would have been nice to see Figo grace the fieldturf at BMO.
