Aboot Toronno FC

Yes, the title of this post is a blatently lame attempt to echo the sound of a Canadian accent. Feel free to chuckle at the feeble attempt.

I'm sure this wasn't your doing (it seems writers don't have say over headlines and captions), but I'm pretty amused at the photo caption that reads, "Midfielder Richard Mulrooney is one of many new faces at Toronto FC."

Apparently there was a lot of turnover from last year's squad...

You know, the thing that gets me is that editors will put things like that in our stories and it looks bad on us.

We don't typically have any control over headlines. All we usually do is turn in the story and pictures, headlines, captions, subheads, etc., are all handled by editors.

At LASoccerNews.com, though, it's pretty much all us so hopefully you won't see things like that there.

Actually, considering that Mulrooney was a very recent add-on to the team, he could be considered a "new" face, kind of. One of my points to the article was that there has been an extraordinary amount of rejiggering to the squad. The little stability that a stable team of players from the start could have established is gone. That said, it's true - I have no control over the pictures or captions and I'd not have picked what they have.

Interesting article, as always. I'll be interested to know what happens to the support as the season goes on. That was pretty much the least interesting thing I could have written.

By the way, Canadians would say Toronno, without the second T.

Hey, thanks for the tip! You're right, I have heard Frank Yallop say it like that.
