Here's your daily fix on news around the Reds community

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Morning all. So this is something new (not in any way new at all, but new to WTR, so hey, that's something) we'll be doing every day, a basic link dump post going towards articles worth reading or news you may not have heard from the last day or so. It'll be mainly focused on TFC of course, with other stuff from MLS or Canada or wherever really as and when it pops up. Feel free to add anything else you find interesting or worth talking about in the comments section, or just chat about whatever really.  Enjoy!

Milan Borjan to join Wigan Athletic?

Canada's starting goalie Milan Borjan looks to be heading over to English Championship side (2nd Divison) Wigan Athletic after departing from Turkish side Sivasspor.  Borjan looks to be Canada's starting goalie, so a move to a team like Wigan, which almost won promotion last year, will really help him improve his game.

2014 AT&T Goal of the Week Nominees: Week 20

Not a lot to say here, it's week 20 now, and 15 more weeks are left in the current season.  So without further 'Adu' here are the top 5 goals of the week.

DeMerit's Legacy

Another friend of ours at Eighty Six Forever, talks about how recently retired franchise player Jay Demeriti had a big impact on the Whitecaps.

And of course today's big news is just about to come, with Joey Saputo's important announcement, at 11:00, widely believed to be the firing of Nick de Santis. Fun to watch a different team be the dysfunctional one for a change.
