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 #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 #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 #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...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #6: Justin Morrow

Kristin: 5 – Scored more than any of the midfielders, held down the defense and threw in some nice crosses.  Productivity going forward helped to offset the occasional lacking on the defensive side. 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...
