Not enough italian, portuguese, russian and german players. Bet you if we singed played overseas, this team would be #1.

Btw, Winter sucks at putting out a good tactical team... every game I see the same crap.

theres more money in Europe even in alot of the 2nd tier leagues then in the MLS which only gives you 3 DP which we've used 2 on Korvermans(Dutch) and Frings(German) so those guys are not gonna come to NA to play when they can stay home and make as much if not more money and play in a better league. so I don't see where your coming from.

one thing I will say about Toronto is that part of there mandate imo should be to develop canadian talent and atleast there doing that giving I believe 7 players playing time this year compared to Montreal and Vancouver who have a combined 2 players playing any minutes that are canadians.

Give me a break the best players on the team so far this year have been Morgan, Henry, Plata and Johnson and none of them are European

Canada Faces USA on Sunday in a friendly.
They also face Cuba june 8th at home and Hondorus away. Both games are world cup Qualifiers. If we can beat Hon away we should win this group.

Big game for Canada tonight against the USA. And we're missing Atiba Hutchinson. The injuries just keep mounting. I can't say I'm too confident for tonight, but let's hope for the best.

Aaron Winter gone eh?

I dont think Mariner deserves a free pass as well. He's also to blame for this mess.

Good riddance, Winter. He was crap. Time to spend that MLSE money and get a high quality coach.

Yeah, and our record speaks for itself. They're good but you gotta get the right mix of players. I like what Montreal did bringing DiVaio.

We've actually used 3 DP, the third is De Guzman.

I don't disagree with bringing in top-end guys from Europe, but as noted above we've used all our DP's.

But we don't need more Richard Eckersley's. Don't mind the guy but a $390K salary? Gross.

This whole team needs a makeover. Everything from management to the players. From the team name, to the logo, to the jerseys.

Everything needs to change!

A makeover? More like an exorcism...

What else can happen at this point?

One of 'em even tried to outrun a cop and couldn't even do that right.

Pretty much says it all, with this embarrassing franchise.

I probably shouldn't chime in but I watched this game. I played soccer for many years. But this Toronto team is awful. Doesn't seem like they have no skill? Almost zero ball control.

I'm just shocked at the level of soccer. I thought it would be better.
