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

11.45pm:*non-draft* Edgar Davids to sign for FC Dallas
12pm: Chicago last-minute trade for number 2 pick. Details not given.

12.30: Mo on phone - looking to trade up?
12.35: FCD trade Greg Vanney for Pick (18) and 2008 consideration. Still plenty of excellent talent left in draft after a couple odd first rounders.
12.45: MoJo still working it, trying to get some uptrade. Gonsalves?
12.50: LA timeout. Talking to TFC!
12.53: TFC get no. 10 pick for partial from LA!

2.08: Rich Asante! wow.

2.27: MoJo still doing the rounds. Looking for extra picks?
2.50: So comes to round 4 and Gonsalves and O'Neill still available. Surprising, but Mo sure to pick one of the two. Lack of Combine not helped?
New England trade 4th round 2008 for pick 48 from Dallas

Draft

1st ROUND:
1. Toronto FC - Maurice Edu ! (Mid) - great, if predictable pick.
2. Columbus Crew Chicago Fire - Bakary Soumare (Def) - a fair choice. Popular with many
3. Kansas City Wizards - Michael Harrington (Def) - overly high IMO
4. Real Salt Lake - Chris Seitz (Gk) - predictable
5. LA Galaxy New England Revolution - Wells Thompson (Mid) - surely not a 1st rounder? Especially to trade up
6. Colorado Rapids (from N.Y. Red Bulls) - Nico Colaluca (Mid) - solid choice
7. Chivas USA - John Cunliffe (For) - English forward. Impressed at Combine
8. Chicago Fire - Jerson Monteiro (For) - Bit of a stretch, but imposing guy.
9. FC Dallas - Anthony Wallace (def/mid) - Dallas lucky he still available. Good Gen.Adidas. US u20
10. Los Angeles Galaxy (from Colorado Rapids)Toronto FC! - Andrew Boyens Def - Great choice. Quality Defender
11. D.C. United - Bryan Arguez (Mid) - Lower than expected for quality US u20 holding midfielder
12. New England Revolution - Amaechi Igwe (mid/def) - Gen. Adidas, predictable 1st round
13. Houston Dynamo - John Michael Hayden (Mid)

2nd ROUND:
14. FC Dallas (from Toronto FC) - Abdus Ibrahim (For) - Gen. Adidas prospect. 15yrs old, so one for later.
15. Columbus Crew - Brad Evans (For) - Big Lad

18. Colorado Rapids (from Los Angeles Galaxy) FC Dallas - Andrew Daniels (Def) -
