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

Toronto unveil Bob Gansler, Mike Matkovich and Carmine Isacco as the coaching staff

Toronto FC have announced Bob Gansler, Mike Matkovich and Carmine Issaco as the assistant coaching trio.

Gansler was already taken for granted, but the appointment of Matkovich and (to a lesser extent) Isacco may come as a suprise.

Gansler and Johnston reunite, Johnston having played under Gansler previously and crediting him with his inspiration to make the move to coaching. Gansler comes off the back of 6 years in the MLS at Kansas, as well as being the US national team coach at the '90 World Cup Finals.

Matkovich, who will be second assistant coach behind Gansler, has a long pedigree of youth and university coaching stretching back to the eighties. Having mentored various players through the 'Super Y' league who have graduated to the MLS, Matkovitch will bring an interesting player development aspect to the coaching staff, and no doubt no little experience in judging youth talent.

Isacco, as revealed by 4 days ago, is stepping down from the U of T head coach position to reunite with Gansler - who he played under during his time at Milwaukee Rampage - as the Goalkeeper Coach for TFC. His additional strength in being not limited to between the sticks will hopefully aid in a well rounded trio of help for numero uno Mojo.
