Toronto FC mid season report card & MLS week in review

You can't spell Laba without a whole lot of As. Handy that i give him another one then. - Martin Bazyl Photography

My latest for Sportsnet, looking at the first half of the TFC season, and James' usual MLS week in review piece at Canadian Soccer news

Half way through the league season, in a bye week no less, what's a lazy hack needing an article to fill some space to do? A mid term report card of course! Groundbreaking I know.

Anyway, forget about that Forlan fellow and let's remember the first half of the season, wasn't it fun? Here they are, grades from A to D for Nelsen and all the players that stumbled their way through the revolving door on to the pitch this year. Early reaction on twitter suggested I was too generous, or possibly drunk. Give it a look, let me know where I'm going wrong, give out your own grades in the comments section.

Also, over at CSN, James is here again with the best review of the week's MLS action you'll find, 16 games, 37 goals, international absentees, controversy and plenty more. Check all that out right here.
