TFC Top 31 Countdown: Number 1 - Danny Koevermans

He gave us that awesome "Worst team in the world" interview and a great run of goals amidst our oh so brief streak of competence. Can he come back and once again be the best natural goalscorer in...

Toronto FC Top 31 Countdown: #2 - Terry Dunfield

9

Terry Dunfield winds up at second in our countdown having featured in nearly every TFC game this season and even notching a couple of impressive goals along the way. His work rate and attitude...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #3 - Richard Eckersley

3

After a season of being often being played out of position and having the defense change around him almost daily, he may not be the best player on the pitch but can always be counted on to play the...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #4 - Luis Silva

4

TFC's first round draft pick, though apparently not Paul Mariner's choice -- and also part of the TFC 3 in Houston, but who's counting? Coming in at #4 in our Top 31, it's rookie Luis Silva.

TFC Top 31 Countdown: # 5 - Torsten Frings

7

At #5 in our countdown we find Toronto FC's captain and undisputed leader Torsten Frings. His season was cut short by injuries this year but his on field impact was undeniable and is why he is once...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #6 - Ashtone Morgan

6

The nasty left back had another good year personally, proving a valuable attacking weapon with much improved crossing leading to plenty of goals. At number 6, it's Ashtone Morgan.

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #7 - Ryan Johnson

1

It looked like he was going to play every minute of every game, but he was eventually allowed to rest. Scored some great goals, took a lot of punishment and just kept on coming. If only he was a...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #8 - Milos Kocic

+

Given the chance to make the number one position his own, didn't really take it, instead ended with the same beaten down look Stefan Frei developed. At number 8, it's Milos Kocic

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #9 - Darren O'Dea

5

Darren O'Dea was signed by Toronto FC in August and was greeted by many fans as finally being the solution to the team's defensive woes but that was not the case in 2012 as he struggled to make a...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #10 - Reggie Lambe

+

The Bermudan international scored a total of 6 goals in his first season with Toronto FC but finds himself right on the edge of our top ten due to his inconsistent performances.

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #11 - Eric Hassli

3

Probably not as important a long term signing as Darren O'Dea, but by far the most exciting signing of the summer window, questions remain about his future and his effectiveness. At number 11, it's...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #12 - Julian de Guzman

1

Our first DP, though in 3 years he only sporadically lived up to that tag. 2012 certainly wasn't the year it all came together for him. The man with the knockout punch, bail bondsman...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #13 - Eric Avila

A creative attacking midfielder who started the season so brightly, ended the year exiled to the bench like a child being sent to his room. Did he play that badly or was Paul Mariner teaching him a...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #14 - Doneil Henry

+

Another year where he got more playing time than would have been expected, a lot of it at right back. He got his first cap for Canada, and scored the winner against the US in the under 23 Olympic...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #15 - Logan Emory

5

A player that's better than this profile makes him out to be. Cheap, dependable, can cover two positions, a good solid MLS depth player. Sadly, with the odd calamitous mistake thrown in. At number...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #16 - Nick Soolsma

Never the fastest or the flashiest, he was a surprisingly solid winger in his time at TFC. Unfortunately a rather large error in judgement and a change in management brought an early end to his...

TFC Top 31 Countdown: #17 - Adrian Cann

5

The Canadian international, may have just been released by the club but he still managed to land at #17 in our countdown after battling back from a major knee injury.
