Meet the newest member of the TFC...Centreback (defence) Omar Gonzalez:

https://www.wakingthered.com/2019/6/3/18650670/breaking-toronto-fc-sign-omar-gonzalez

We wont be seeing him in a TFC jersey until July.

Bienvenido, Omar!


What fans may not know is this:

The 2009 MLS SuperDraft is one that haunted Toronto FC for years. A team at that time in desperate need of a centre-back to build around decided to use the second overall pick on midfielder Sam Cronin. Gonzalez went with the very next pick to the Los Angeles Galaxy.  From the time Gonzalez stepped on an MLS pitch, you just knew he was the real deal. The towering central defender went on to win the 2009 Rookie of the Year, 2011 Defender of the Year, was named four times into the MLS Best XI, and helped his Galaxy team to three MLS Cup triumphs and two Supporters Shields.

At least, hes ours now.

Bradley says what many think (especially fans of TFC):

Quote
Bradley slammed MLS for failing to work out scheduling conflicts with the FIFA in terms of international duty.

I said it before and Ill say it again, its the worst part about the league (MLS), the fact that teams play through FIFA dates, Bradley said following a TFC training session. Because as youre trying to give everything you have for your club team and the national team, theres too many moments where youre missing something and I think its got to be the next step for the league, or one of the next steps, in terms of respecting the FIFA dates, not playing through summer tournaments. And it always comes back to scheduling issues.

It's about time for some TFC news...

The Toronto FC plays the New England Revolution at BMO Field here in T.O. on Saturday.

The TFC (10-10-7) are currently in eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.  The top seven teams make the post-season.
Only seven matches remaining as they find themselves just behind the Montreal Impact for that seventh spot.

GO TFC!

In reference to the post below, the TFC tied the New England Revolution last Saturday 1-1.

Yesterday (Sunday), Toronto beat the hapless FC Cincinnati 5-1 in Cincinnati.

With the above, Toronto moves into a tie for sixth spot alongside the New York Red Bull in the Eastern Conference.

Next game is Wednesday Sept. 11 against the first place NYC FC at BMO Field.  Another crucial match as Toronto cant afford to lose many more games in a bid to keep their playoff hopes alive.  TFC is on a bit of a roll and the momentum needs to be upkept.

GO TFC!

Good news for TFC fans!

Sunday, the TFC extended their winning streak to nine consecutive games, with a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rapids at BMO Field.

That's the good news, but the better news and one every Toronto soccer aficionado that follows the TFC wants to hear, is that the TFC are now entrenched in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings -- good enough for a playoff run.

GO TFC!
