Toronto FC have concluded the Toronto portion of training camp this morning. I had the good fortune to arrive for the afternoon session - which was cancelled. I would suspect Sir Mo allowed the players the afternoon off to prepare for the the next two months away. Contrary to claims made by some that the Soccer Centre was somehow closed this week (which is simply impossible given the facility houses different offices and other businesses) it was very much open, and in fact I was not the only fan in attendance, there were more than a few curious onlookers who were stopping by throughout the week to watch.
It will be interesting to see who makes it down to Florida, and if indeed Xu Qing our Chinese Mystery Man, gets the opportunity to head stateside, if he is even allowed to enter the United States that is (depends on his visa status of course).
NOTES: Conor Casey's agent was on local radio last night and confirmed that Casey is on the way to Toronto. He also mentioned that Casey has been trying to get back to the USA for a couple of years now. Bob Gansler formerly of the KC Wizards was very close to bringing him into the Kansas City a year or so ago.
