Toronto FC sticky? (For the moderator)

Hey guys, what do you say we make a "Sticky for Toronto FC" or even our own forum?

Im really looking forward to this team and im 100% into suporting it.

I was just reading Nick Hornby"s "Fever Pitch and theres a part about suporting 2 teams being almost like cheating on your wife (in my case "Nacional" of Uruguay)

But in the book it says its ok if they play for different leagues or different divisions (different universes..........as if it would be imposible for the 2 women you are seeing to meet at the same party)

Its a great book.

Anyways, what does the moderator say?

Uruguay
- 4 Time World Champion (2 World Cups and 2 Olympic/World titles)
- 14 Copa Americas

- World Cup- 2 Fourth Places at (54,70)
- 1 FIFA Gold World title (1980)
- Youth World Cup- 1 Silver Medal (1997) , 1 Bronze Medal (1979)
[/B][/COLOR]
- 8 Copa Libertadores
- 6 World Club Championships

I was planning on having an "official" Toronto FC sticky thread once we know something about the team.

We can of course start as many threads as we like about different aspects of the team or the MLS, and some of those might be sticky too, if there's enough ongoing interest.

Xtratime also has an MLS forum, where Toronto FC fans are welcome to post.

...and I don't encourage anyone to cheat on their wife.

I agree Fever Pitch is a great book.

I should read it again.

Correcting above.

Doesn't make much sense to have a foreign manager for a team whose stated purpose by the National Association is to promote and play Canadians. Awareness of the situation would be an asset ne c'est pas?

Toronto FC may have found its first coach
Peter Mallett
Globe and Mail online July 4.

Former Scottish international Mo Johnston could be announced as the first coach of Major League Soccer expansion side Toronto FC.

The Globe and Mail has learned that the red haired former midfielder/forward who starred for both Glasgow Rangers and Celtic was interviewed late last week for a head coaching position with the new team, which will begin play in the 12-team U.S.-based league in April of 2007....

Last Tuesday, Johnston was fired as coach of the New York Red Bulls after the team struggled out of the gate, registering just two wins along with three ties and seven losses.

Johnston travelled to Toronto for a job interview with the club shortly after his departure from New York.

Johnston represented Scotland 37 times in the 1980s and scored 13 goals in international play. Aside from his club career which involved both members of Glasgow's Old Firm (Rangers and Celtic), he also played with Scottish clubs Falkirk, Hearts and Partick Thistle, English clubs Watford and Everton, French club Nantes and ended his career with Kansas City of the MLS.

Many are speculating that the departure of Johnston didn't sit well with several Red Bulls players. The club is still deciding what punishment to hand out to its marquee player, former French World Cup midfielder Youri Djorkaeff.

Djorkaeff left the club shortly after Johnston's firing last week in what were described to be "personal reasons at home", but was spotted by television crews in Frankfurt, Germany on Saturday celebrating France's 1-0 upset of Brazil.
---------------------

I'm not sure hiring Mo as the team's first coach would be a good idea, given his lack of results with the Red Bulls.

And I agree we should look first for a Canadian coach.
