With the 2018 USL season nearly upon us, we here at Waking the Red wanted to reach out to you, our readers, to see what sort of coverage you would like as Toronto FC II embark on the next season.
TFC II begin their campaign on Saturday, March 17, away to New York Red Bulls II, at 1 p.m.
In anticipation, we have a few items lined up over the coming days: I had a sit down with new head coach Laurent Guyot on Friday and a more thorough look at the squad in the form of a season preview will arrive before Saturday.
Last season, coverage revolved primarily around match previews and recaps with the occasional feature or in-depth look at a player.
Here are some examples of the format: preview; recap; feature.
Robin Glover, a.k.a. Rocket Robin, has joined the staff and will be adding his keen eye to the task, but time constraints being what they are, WTR wants to know if readers would prefer one method of coverage over another.
Would you prefer we stick with last season’s plan, previewing the upcoming match, seeking insight into them ahead of time, and providing detailed recaps of the action afterwards. Or would a more detached approach, focusing more on analysis and features on specific players better suit your desires?
Ideally, we would aim to provide both the framework of the regular match coverage, frilled with analysis and features, but it can be difficult to schedule; commitment to one detracts from the time available to the other.
Please leave any feedback or suggestions in the comment section below.
With TFC II making the move downtown this season, from the relative backwoods to the spotlight of the big city, not to mention the intriguing roster that has matured over the three previous seasons, 2018 could well be a big year for the side.
We want to be there for every step of it, and encourage you to do the same.
