Ya but Lampard is still capable of being a regular starter in a top 4 Premier League Squad which is also why we wont see him here imo

Are these 2-3 players from the MLS, or from outside as well?

I'm definitely excited for the moves and while my interest in TFC never faded, I'm more optimistic then I ever was with these moves.

I'll hold my opinion on the team as a whole until after they take the pitch but it does seem like they finally have someone in charge who at least has a clue.

I wouldn't get my hopes up on Gilberto. He wasn't all that great in Brazil but Brazil is also a top league so its hard to say how he will perform here in MLS.

Don't forget about Bright Dike! FC has an elite striking trio on paper, if they sign Defoe of course. Reggie Lambe has nice pace too, at least on Fifa

Not sure, what he means, but 1 player should come from the second round of the re-entry draft,

Interesting.

The press conference itself was nothing special with Gilberto, Ryan Nelsen, and Tim Bezbatchenko all present. The fact that Tim Leiweke was absent, he is out of town, speaks to the fact that this is probably not the big signing that he has been talking about so much but rather another piece of the puzzle to build the team around that potential big name DP.

After making moves to bolster its attack and midfield, Toronto FC has turned its attention to the backline by acquiring American defender Justin Morrow from the San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for allocation money.

He's a LB/CB he will play ahead of Morgan.

“In Morrow, we are adding a young, All-Star caliber player to our backline,” Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. “Justin’s steady presence, versatility and MLS experience make him a great addition to the club.”

Morrow was an MlS all star, He also played a few games for the US National team before getting injured, So it looks like a good pick up for TFC,

Luke Wileman ‏@LukeWileman 2m Drake's call helped persuade Jermain Defoe to agree to join Toronto FC, reports Daily Mirror: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footba...MzAz0E.twitter

The 31-year-old has been offered a deal worth 90,000-a-week, while Toronto will also pay for unlimited flights for him and his family and provide him with two houses.

Doubters? TFC has done nothing but over promise and under deliver since they started in this league. It's called a pattern of behaviour.

Also, they just fired AVB and the transfer isn't final yet. I'm gonna wait until it becomes final before I count my chickens. New coach comes in and wants to feature Defoe? Do you think he still comes to Toronto?

Yea, AVB getting the sack could lead to complications depending on how quick they get a new guy in.

I think Defoe may have already committed himself to coming though.

We will find out soon enough.

TFC selects DeRo, Hope they can get him signed to a good contract and not an overpaid contract. Anyways Dero is back in Toronto.

David Rowaan ‏@soccercanada3mTold DeRo and TFC already have a contract in place. No need to worry about that not getting done.

That's a pretty impressive 3 pronged attack. Very impressive actually. Get a CM and this team will be scoring goals left right and centre.
