Toronto FC, heading into it's sixth season this year, are looking to finally make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Considering the state of the team management over the past five years it's not surprising the team has yet to make the playoffs. In five full seasons, the team has hired six different coaches. With this revolving door at the coaching spot, the team has been subject to constant roster overhauls in order to fit the incoming coaches' preferred style of play.
With some stability finally in place in the team's management, as well as a set system and a core of good young players, things are starting to look up for Toronto FC. The team has solid goaltending with Stefan Frei and Milos Kocic who fills in nicely as his understudy. Defence has been a constant concern for quite some time, however. The midfield showed promise with de Guzman, Silva, and (until his injury) club captain Torsten Frings. The team also had some quality options up front in Plata, Koevermans, as well as Johnson who got off to a great start.
However, the team still has a long way to go if they ever want to become MLS champions, something fans have been dreaming of since the team's inception. While the team currently has the maximum three designated players, there are some players the team could add to help this season.
