Shaping up

It’s a small wonder that Toronto FC spend a week in Charleston, SC, while preparing for the new season. The place is gorgeous. Steeped in history, plenty to do, and a wonderful climate.

The Carolina Cup presason tournament is well underway. We watched the double-header the other night and were completely unimpressed with D.C. United as they played Real Salt Lake. Many of the D.C. players looked out of shape. That’s certainly not the case with Toronto FC. Its fitness level and workrate is superb. Even though they went a man down against the USL’s Charleston Battery, the team still passed the ball around nicely and wore down the opposition.

Central defence still appears to be a question mark. New signing Adrian Serioux is still a step behind as he works to get his fitness level up. Nobody seems worried however as more personnel moves appear imminent.

We’ve spent some time here doing interviews for upcoming Soccercentral shows, and we think you’ll enjoy seeing the other side of their personalities. Some of them have some interesting stories to tell about life growing up.

(A day on the golf course with the coaching staff was a blast. Good thing we had the camera there to record it all.)

Striker O’Brian White is ahead of schedule as he continues to recover from knee surgery. We have a lengthy interview with him as well. Greg Sutton is still feeling pain with that dislocated finger but he’s training on a regular basis. Hard to believe that once this tournament ends on the weekend, the team will have just three training sessions in Toronto before heading to Kansas City and the season opener.
