VMP Final Countdown 2017: Number 14 – Nicolas Hasler

Highest: 8 Lowest: 21 Average ranking: 14.24 Kristin: 15 – Nicolas Hasler – or as I like to call him, Baron von Liechtenstein – was a summer addition to the team in response to the fact that TFC (deepest team ever), still seemed to have no natural back-up at right back for Steven Beitashour (sorry Alseth).  Hasler had mostly played for his hometown club of FC Vaduz, as well as representing Liechtenstein at the...

VMP Final Countdown 2017: Number 18 – Armando Cooper

Highest: 13 Lowest: 25 Average ranking: 18.04 Mark: 19 – The loan that turned into a stay, and we were still confused by it all.  Armando Cooper signed on at the conclusion of last year’s playoffs, and stuck around for the full ride.  In a word : interesting.

However, when tasked with two relatively interchangeable keepers, I suspect that...

VMP Final Countdown 2017: Number 26 – Ben Spencer

Highest: 22 Lowest: 27 Average ranking: 24.95 Kristin: 25 – Big Ben Spencer!  Damn it Ben, we had a song for when you scored, and it was a good song!  And now you’ll never hear it.  But it was good.  Honest. Spencer was signed to Toronto FC back in May after having joined TFC II in the fall of 2016.  The towering forward (6’5!) was signed to a homegrown deal and brought in to bring some size to the attack – but...
