Jealous of Toronto FC: Defoe signs on

I never thought I would say it, but if what I am reading is right, I am jealous of TFC. Jermain Defoe has signed with them. Defoe started as a youngster with my favourite English club, West Ham United. I saw him score for West Ham against Chelsea in a 3-2 win back in 2002 when I visited England. He is and has been one of the most gifted and skilled English footballers of his generation. His talents have been wasted at Tottenham, where his skills have been parked on the bench. I think it is a scandal that he has not been playing first team football.

Now he will be playing in Major League Soccer for his old teammate Ryan Nelson, who currently coaches TFC. It is good news for MLS. While Defoe is not exactly a spring chicken any more, he will be one of the top 5 players in the league.

All I can say is I wish he had signed with the Whitecaps!

  1. Oh my days.
    Defoe has only ever got over 30+ goals in a single season ONCE in his entire career. Yeah he is a great striker…… Bloody americans have no clue about FOOTBALL (not soccer! it’s FOOTBALL because you kick the ball with your FOOT, not throw it like you dumb ass americans)

    And Defoe is still at Spurs, going no where until Spurs have a decent replace confirmed.

  2. Somehow TFC will ruin his career…I predict season ending injury by game 10…tfc is cursed.

  3. It would be good for Defoe to go somewhere else like Toronto ,He’s too old for clubs like Faces and China whites chilling with these orange wag bitches hes been through alot.Everyones needs to evolve .Then we can free up some wages and bring in Alvaro Moratta and a creative midfielder.

  4. Defoe is excellent and would still be excellent at 35 becos he is a natural deadly striker, he is highly scandalously underrated and perhaps discriminated against , but in my opinion the Italian league would be excellent for him.
