episode 174 – 17/02/22 #HesFromBarcelona

Mark Hinkley’s on strike until TFC finally show us their new kit, goddamnit, but the other 3 are all here and with actual things to talk about this week, Bill Manning being a big meanie to the CPL, pre season stuff and a new signing (Guess where he played? You’ll never believe it but we have an actual honest to god former Barca player!!!!!!). We also complete our look back of TFC’s first 10 years, this time covering...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #2: Sebastian Giovinco

Duncan: 2 – Didn’t really get a lot of support for various tactical reasons through the long away trip and the mid summer patch where everyone else was injured but generally still kept playing well, scoring goals and doing his Seba things. Eventually seemed to wear him down and towards the end of the season and after his injury into the playoffs seemed to get frustrated a lot easier than usual. Whether he wasn’t...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #4: Drew Moor

Duncan: 1 – This is a bit of a hypothetical number one ranking really as it’s based on what probably would have happened if he got injured. Bradley, Altidore, Giovinco, Irwin, all missed time at various points in the season, and we got by fine enough, and I don’t think that’d be the case if Moor went missing. The difference between last year’s defence and this years was huge, for many reasons but Moor was...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #7: Steven Beitashour

Duncan: 7 – He’s maybe a bit overpaid, but with how TFC play, the full backs might well be the most important players on the pitch, and Beitashour was alright out there. Not super convincing at either defending or attacking, but he does both of them about as well as can be asked form an MLS level player. The cross to Cheyrou was absolutely perfect as well. After the 2015 season saw the right back position occupied by a...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #10: Will Johnson

Duncan: 11 – A shame about the injury as he’d had a decent first half of the season. By the time he was fit again, lost out in a numbers game as we just have too many similar midfielders, so letting him walk as a free agent kind of makes sense really. Forever a part of club folklore for breaking his leg while scoring the cup winning goal. After the 2015 season, it was obvious that Will Johnson was going to leave Portland...
