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?

I was referring to the doubters saying we wouldn't get Defoe, even though the team is looking pretty solid right now.
“And so everyone can speculate we’re done. We couldn’t be done if we wanted do. We can’t sign, get deals and make deals binding until after the window opens up. So I think everyone needs to understand if they’re waiting for an announcement tomorrow, it’s not coming.
We'll see how this turns out. I love DeRo, but we all know about the way he and the team parted ways. Hopefully the conversation Leiweke and Tim B had with DeRo has rectified everything, and that it's true that DeRo wants to be here.
Right, he vouched for him and that's why we made the trade
There's no doubt that TL was the main reason why the Leafs got Bernier. He has contacts in L.A, very familiar with Bernier, and it wasn't until he got involved that the trade happened. Every team, including the Leafs, were calling about Bernier but TL made it happen very quickly because of his connections. This guy is the best thing to happen to MLSE, he makes Tom Anselmi seem like an amateur, imagine that guy still making decisions for not only TFC, but the Leafs and Raptors.
This has nothing to do with Lewieke, You are giving him to much credit for something he did not do, The Gilberto signing and bringing back Dero has nothing to do with Lewieke at all, Lewieke has no power or say in what players we bring in. you don't understand who Tim Bez is...
Now with the transfer window open, and a new manager with Tottenham, any developments on the Defoe front?
Not hearing anything at all Except for a few comments from Redknapp about a Defoe loan to QPR untill march, but everything still points hes coming to tfc
This is From Yesterday
Kristian Jack also just reported on TSN1050 that the Defoe deal is virtually done, and that he will immediately be loaned back to Spurs prior to reporting to TFC in time for the season opener in March.
