Toronto FC captain Jim Brennan believes added depth in the squad will be a key factor in the Reds’ ability to make the playoffs this season. Brennan has been impressed with the quality of the team in preseason so far. “There is a buzz around the camp and the standard has obviously gone up,” he said. “We’ve lacked depth over the last couple of seasons, but now we have it and that will make a big difference this year.”The latest addition to the team was Brennan’s former Canadian international teammate Adrian Serioux who was signed from FC Dallas last week to bolster the team’s defence. “I’ve known Adrian for a very long time and I think it is great for the club and for Canada,” said Brennan.

“Slowly but surely we are starting to get a few more Canadian guys into the club which is great for the fans and the club. It’s also good for the youngsters around here that want to play for Toronto one day. With Adrian coming he adds a lot of strength at the back he’s got the experience and I think he will be a great asset for us. Defensively we are getting a few more players in. I think all over the park you need to have depth, especially in this league when players are going to be away on international duty, you need guys to be able to come in and do a job,” explained Brennan.

After a month of preseason, Brennan is delighted with the way preparation for the new campaign is progressing. “It has been great so far,” he said. “There is a buzz around the camp and the standard has obviously gone up. The training has been first class and the guys are working hard. There is a belief going around right now. All of the guys who have come in have settled in right from day one. Everyone can’t wait for the first game of the season.”
