VMP Final Countdown 2017: Number 5 – Alex Bono

Highest: 2 Lowest: 8 Average ranking: 5.4 Kristin: 7 – Damn you Bones, you had to go and be good didn’t you?  That may seem like an odd sentiment, but if you follow me or listen to the show then you know of my fondness for Clint Irwin (and yes for Q but I gave up that fight) – Irwin is a more than capable MLS keeper and I was thrilled when TFC snatched him away from the Rapids.  Similarly I was sad when Irwin was...

Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders: Can TFC Keep On Rolling On Short Rest & Missing Key Players?

Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders ~ May 6th ~ 3pm ET ~ CenturyLink Field ~ CTV  Three game homestand, three wins, nine points – really this homestand (their longest of the season) couldn’t have gone much better for Toronto FC.  Admittedly Wednesday night’s game against Orlando wasn’t the prettiest or the most dominant; but unlike TFC of old (or even of earlier this season), they held on and closed out the game to...

VMP 2016 Final Countdown #15: Alex Bono

Kristin: 17 – TFC’s big SuperDraft grab from 2015 – wanders more than I’d like, but settled in and did a good job of subbing in for Irwin. Not a No. 1 keeper yet; but the potential is there. From TFCII to the big leagues in the blink of an eye!  That’s basically what happened with Alex Bono this past season.  Taken high in the draft (6th) by TFC in 2015, Bono spent the season with TFCII (poor Q,...

Altidore arrives, Chapman signs, 5 get drafted. Busy day for TFC

Well, it was quite the day for Toronto’s squad building attempts, at the DP end, and at the probably USL Pro side as well, one could plausibly call it a SuperDay. First up before all the SuperDraft nonsense (for all the highlights of that, click here.) there was the signing of Jay Chapman. Highly touted young player, who’d have been right up there at the top of the draft, but who was somewhat dubiously granted homegrown...

Is That A Super Draft? No Just A Light Bez.

  How’s everyone feeling?  Super? That’s just super guys!  I’m super too.  To quote South Park: ‘I’m super psyched to be here!’.  It’s SuperDraft day in MLS – feel the excitement!  Today is the day where Canadian Cyle Larin will get drafted first overall – which is kind of exciting I guess – by Orlando City SC.   But other stuff has to happen too – there’s...
