Another two teams enter this season (NYC, and Orlando) and there has been a few decent transfers for the league. Kaka, Villa, Gerrard and possibly Lampard?? being the biggest stars to move over this year. Although Toronto have lost defoe they have replaced him with Altidore and a new signing of Giovinco from Juventus. I don't know the player too well but he's played for Italy a few times and he's still only 27. It has to be a good move for the league to get younger European players over. It leaves them with 4 designated players though with only 3 allowed. I wonder if they are going to increase it to 4 DPs for the new season, personally I would keep it at 3 and increase the salary cap for the rest of the squad instead giving a chance to bring through better quality from other leagues. Scotty how are you feeling about Toronto's chances this season?
A big game in Inverness this weekend, but its derby day in MLS too ... or what they are calling "rivalry week". Portland head to Seattle for a MLS game that is also classified as a "Cascadia Cup" game. (The Cascadia cup is awarded - by supporters groups of the competing clubs - to the team in the Pacific North West which has the best record against the others that season. Portland/Seattle and Vancouver are the 3 teams that compete for it.) DC United will head up from Washington to play New York in their "Atlantic Cup" derby, New England will head across from Boston to play Philadelphia in the St Paddys Day battle between cities with a heavy Irish ancestry,, and Colorado make the trip to Salt Lake City for the Rocky Mountain derby ... not sure if there is some history behind the other two games on Saturday, but for some bizzaro reason, Columbus will play San Jose while Kansas entertain Chicago so not every game appears to be a derby. on Sunday, its back to derbies as Dallas play Houston whilst LA Galaxy will play against Chivas who share the same stadium as them. But the biggie (for me at least) is Montreal -V- Toronto on Saturday !!!! An early start for me and an estimated (sold out allocation of) 5300 travelling fans .... some are heading there tomorrow, others are already there, and many are making it a full weekend, taking in a UFC event as well as St Patrick's day which is apparently huge in Montreal !!! but in my case, its off to BMO field for 7am Saturday morning and the 6 hour bus journey to Montreal ... watch the game then back to Toronto ..... hopefully with a big smile First home game was last weekend and TFC played in the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) against Kansas. Kansas won the Eastern Division last year, a full 40 points ahead of TFC, but courtesy of a couple of Robbie Earnshaw goals, some nice play from John Bostock and solid defending from Darren O'Dea and Danny Califf, the Reds - and new coach Ryan Nelsen - got all 3 points ..... 3 more this weekend against Montreal would be sweet .....
