Trusting Mo - sometimes a struggle..
This is frustrating. When Mo Johnston decides to lead the MLS in saying "pass" in the latter rounds of the college draft last week, you had to wonder. On one hand, would any other sports team in this (or any) market get away with not using draft choices ? Even if he was only going to make a claim on those players fully expecting to either trade them or let them play USL and hold onto their rights, why turn down the opportunity ? Is this a form of Mo arrogance, he believes so much in the quality of his first six picks that he can say pass three times. Yet hope springs eternal. Maybe this is a sign that the overdue flood of signings we have been waiting for is just around the corner.
There must be a number of Canadians to be signed the development roster alone. I still think we have seen Jeff Cunningham play his last game for TFC. Someone is going to gamble that last year was the blip and look at his scoring in recent years and make a deal for him.
I should learn to avoid Internet rumours, remember I had Del Piero signing for us last November. The latest buzz is around Darren Huckerby and Stefano Fiore. Fingers crossed - I will wait until something is officially confirmed.
