Dammit was hoping Toronto was in champions. Does anybody know if Utti from timbers still with team?

D.C. United trades 1st slot in allocation & Ethan White to PHL for 6th position in allocation & Jeff Parke. Philly angling for Maurice Edu

TFC still has a chance and who ever wins the canandian cup will enter. Could be a mls Canadian team or a amateur Canadian team. Canadian teams don't compete in the US open cup sinces its for US teams only

The problem is that Canadian MLS teams usually don't send their best teams to play in Voyageurs Cup because of the presence of lower league teams (FC Edmonton, Ottawa Fury) among other things, so shits can happen when bigger teams meet.

The Canadian Championship is growing and won't be that easy by now. Still proud of my boys winning 3 in a row though. (Shout out to Aron Winter)

SuperDraft is this Thursday.

Two highly touted defenders, both from Cal, Christian Dean and Steve Birnbaum and a goalie that they say to be the next Tim Howard from UConn Andre Blake are projected to be Top 3, with a highly decorated striker from Maryland Patrick Mullins hoving around the big board.

Mattias Laba wants to stay with TFC (for the obvious reason), but TFC has to deal with his U-23 DP contract first.

Union seems to be interested to get Mo Edu, trading Jeff Parke away to clear the space for him.

Chivas USA lol.


Hate to continue talking about TFC but I'm glad they are making this splash. It's only going to be great for the league if they end up becoming a "mega team" and have the ability to be the hottest team in town and draw in millions of canadian fans.

To think in one offseason they got Bradley, Defoe, Gilberto and DeRo. Not sure how they afforded it.
