FC Toronto is quickly becoming quite a story in MLS and they have yet to play a game.
The club stop selling season tickets at 14,000 and the squad coached by former Scottish International Mo Johnston will have a true Euro-feel to it.
Welsh midfielder Carl Robinson comes from Norwich, Andy Welsh from Sunderland while they have acquired Irishman Ronnie O’Brien from FC Dallas. That has been followed by the recent signing of Richard Mulrooney also from FC Dallas.
Robinson is in the Welsh squad to face the Republic of Ireland this Saturday and thinks more English players will make the jump across the pond.
“Iv’e had six or seven players asking if I will put in a word,” said Robinson to BBC Sport. “I know there are lots of players keen on going over. It is whether they can sort something out.”
Don’t bank on it. Many agents are thinking that Beckham type money is available and it is just not the case as we all know.
The DP rule really has not panned out to much excitement but could be a useful tool come the summer when the transfer window
opens and teams are looking for a spike heading into the stretch run towards the MLS Cup Final.
Toronto will definetly have a UK feel to their team which should make things interesting in MLS.
