TORONTO FC: NORWICH & WALES MIDFIELDER ON HIS WAY

Early indications have Carl Robinson of Norwich City and Wales on his way to Toronto FC in a very late transfer move. Sir Mo did say it was a lesser known player he was looking at last week, and you pretty much can't get any lesser known than Robinson. Johnston most probably had a good look at him while in England last month so he knows what he is getting here. The journeyman international from Wales looks to have had difficulty staying in one place for very long during his career, but was probably had on the cheap. That said it will be very interesting to find out what type of salary Robinson commands and what type of allocation Toronto used for him. Only time will tell if Robinson is markedly better than the players currently on the TFC roster or comparable domestic players available to play his position, and whether he justifies taking up a coveted Senior International spot. A couple of things he will bring is experience and versatility as he can play as a defender as well.

It is largely assumed that he will be announced at a presser tomorrow along with the official beer sponsor for the team - thought to be Carlsberg.

Take it easy guys. We were told it wasn't going to be a big name. Don't expect one anytime soon. The Fowler talk is far fethced in my estimation.

Who the hell is this guy? Just what we needed to generate interest a guy from one of the smallest countries in the world.
