Hear me out, all none of you Toronto fans reading this blog.
With MoJo feeling pretty good about himself what with Dunivant heading across the border and new signing Samuel sure to bring some heat, TFC is having one of the best rookie seasons an MLS team has ever had. Very respectable.
And yet, while I'm not fan enough to comment about TFC's midfield, I think TFC could do better. Here's how:
Sign that Gerba kid.
Wikipedia says he's contracted to OFK Gotenborg in Sweden, but that he's being loaned every which way across the Nordic belt. No doubt he's benefitting from European football, but I think if TFC wants to become a class side among the NYRB/LA Galaxy/ DC United ranks, there needs to be a guy name Gerba in the TFC squad. His fervor and attacking clout, coupled with Dichio and Samuel's Euro-tested striking skills, could prove to be a revelation for TFC, Canada, and the MLS.
But wait! There's more!
If signing Gerba wouldn't take a DP slot, this probably would. The next thing you need to do, TFC, after you sign Gerba, is to bring DeRo home.
That's right. Sign DeRosario.
It makes immigration and therefore roster sense to do both of these things: neither player would hog a senior international slot, things which clubs are very hard pressed to come by these days. Between Gerba and DeRo, TFC would have a terrific midfield. This goes without saying.
Clear some cap room by selling Ronnie O'Brien and whoever else you feel like, and then make this happen, I beseech you. Canadians everywhere will be thanking you for years.
