VMP 2016 Final Countdown #3: Michael Bradley

Kristin: 4 – So weird; I actually liked Michael Bradley this year.  Vanney found/he agreed to a new position on the pitch, he didn’t try to do everything himself every game, defensively worlds better, huge towards the end of the season. But please stop taking free kicks. K, thanks. Michael Bradley has been with Toronto FC for three years and I disliked him for the first two – I never saw anything that made it seem...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #5: Clint Irwin

Kristin: 7 – Lost places for lack of playing time and only a so-so return post-injury.  However, started the season pretty great, he’s young and is great bang for the buck – hoping for really good things in 2017. Clint Irwin has had an interesting career arc – to say the least – from playing in Ottawa for Capitol City in the now defunct Canadian Soccer League, t0 back-up for the Charlotte Eagles in the...

Still, one of the best fullbacks in the league. Justin Morrow has been one of the most consistent players for Toronto FC the past three seasons – one of the best signings that TFC have made in their short history and was a...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #9: Tosaint Ricketts

Kristin: 11 – Super sub extraordinaire!  Speed, nightmare for opposition defenses late in games and Canadian!  Plus that goal against Montreal – thrilled that he’s with TFC, looking forward to seeing a full season from him. The rumours of Tosaint Ricketts coming to Toronto FC were murmured for several months this past year – his time with his latest Turkish club Boluspor had come to an acrimonious end due to...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #11: Benoit Cheyrou

Kristin: 6 – Our favourite menacing dock worker – and the most intelligent player on the pitch – the sublime (yes sublime) Cheyrou, our midfield maestro, keeper of the ship during injuries and scorer of the most amazing goal ever. Hopefully we get one more year of his marvelousness. Benoit Cheyrou remains one of my favourite players and one of the best bits of business that  TFC has done in the past two years.  Silky...
