John’s Soccer Valentine

Torsten Frings

midfielder, Toronto FC

Why is he John’s Soccer Valentine? Because the man is not only Toronto FC’s top designated player (sorry Danny Koevermans), but he’s deadly with the ball, and good lookin’ to boot for 34. I don’t usually go for long hair, but it just makes him sexier!

What would their Soccer Valentine date be? Why, it would be a day at BMO kicking about, then a walk down the shore of Lake Ontario, followed by a nice dinner at one of Toronto’s finest restaurants — followed by a night out on Church Street.

Toronto FC Strengthen Backline with Eckersley, Caicedo

No way! Does TFC actually have an actual solid and firm backline for the first time in…ever?

During TFC’s media day on Thursday, they announced the resigning of (now) ex-Burnley defender Richard Eckersley. The finalization of this deal has been eagerly awaited by fans, who had been waiting on tenterhooks for the paperwork to be completed. When news broke that the English Championship side released him, most of the fears that the deal would never be done just vanished.

And to make things even better, they announced on the same day that Joao Plata’s teammate from LDU Quito, centreback(!!!) Geovanny Caicedo has been added to the lineup. For a team that’s been looking for defensive solutions and a supporter base that’s been waiting for one, the 30-year old should hopefully provide some breathing room.

There is word that the rumoured signing of Chilean team Colo-Colo’s leftback Miguel Aceval is a done deal — but nothing was announced.
