Chey-what? Benoit Cheyrou signed up by TFC

EDIT: This was written when it was just a rumour, merely a twinkle in John Molinaro’s eye. It’s now official, see tweets below. Sacre rouge! It looks like Toronto FC may be in the midst of a mini-French Revolution with the club linked with midfielder Benoit Cheyrou by Sportsnet’s John Molinaro.

MALIGNANT RUMOUR: Gilberto To Sign With Vasco da Gama?

  We all know that it’s just a matter of when, not if, Gilberto is traded away from Toronto FC. ┬áDispense with any thoughts that TFC will pay down his salary with some of their sweet, sweet allocation moneyz; as foolish as this team often is with its money, they’re not that foolish.

After this week’s initial rumour of Damien Perquis, half heartedly confirmed as a target by the club, and the appointments of Stuart Neely and Robin Fraser in coaching roles, the week went out with a bang.

MALIGNANT RUMOUR: Damien Perquis to Toronto FC

Finally. After what are traditionally the only 2 quiet weeks in the entire MLS calendar (great time to launch a new website eh? we’re geniuses!) and only a couple of TFC stories to follow, the genuinely happy news of Doneil Henry’s transfer to West Ham, and the bitter but necessary following of just where Jermain Defoe’s going to end up (Come on, Sven in China!), we get the first juicy rumour of someone coming in to...
