Review and events[edit]

Season[edit]

Toronto FC started the 2012 Major League Soccer season with a nine-game losing streak; a new league record.[1] Aron Winter was dismissed as head coach and was replaced by Paul Mariner.[2] Winter had only won one away match during his tenure as head coach.[2] Mariner became the 7th coach in franchise history.[2][3] Prior to Winter dismissal, he agreed to take over the youth academy and Mariner would become head coach.[3] However, the night before the changes were to be announced, he asked to be relieved of all duties.[3] Toronto FC failed to qualify the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs.[1][4][5][6] Torsten Frings will miss the remainder of the season due to a hip injury; an injury that requires surgery.[7]

On September 27, Toronto FC stated on their Facebook page that, "waiving ticketing fees" for the remaining home games between 10 a.m. on the morning of September 27 and 10 a.m. on September 29.[8] Many season-ticket holders were angry over the discount.[8] Paul Beirne, who is the senior director of business operations, stated "it's the cumulative effect of a really difficult season."[8]

On October 6 against D.C. United, some people in the supporters section wore paper bags over their heads.[9]

Olof Mellberg[edit]

Paul Mariner showed interest in Olof Mellberg after watching Sweden vs. England at Euro 2012.[3] The club pursued the player and agreed to a deal worth $3 million over two years was agreed to in principle.[3] However, the league refuse to let the deal happen.[3] The club was furious the league had decided to not let the Bosman transfer to happen.[3] Major League Soccer claims that they went to the MLSE board of directors and try to convince them not to sign Mellberg.[3] MLS commissioner Don Garber stated "Let's put Mellberg aside. The league hasn't nixed that. Toronto has decided it didn't make sense for them."[3] A source that the Toronto Star says that would know of the situation stated that Garber's statement was "absolutely untrue. Not 99 per cent untrue. It's 100 per cent untrue."[3] A rumour circulated within the club that "the league had polled other teams for their thoughts on the deal."[3]

Allocation ranking[edit]

Toronto is in the No. 4 position in the MLS Allocation Ranking. The allocation ranking is the mechanism used to determine which MLS club has first priority to acquire a U.S. National Team player who signs with MLS after playing abroad, or a former MLS player who returns to the league after having gone to a club abroad for a transfer fee. A ranking can be traded, provided that part of the compensation received in return is another club's ranking.[36]

International roster slots[edit]

It is believed that Toronto FC has 10 MLS International Roster Slots. Each club in Major League Soccer is allocated 8 international roster spots, which can be traded. Toronto FC acquired one slot from San Jose Earthquakes on July 14, 2011. TFC has use of this spot through the end of the 2012 season, at which point it reverts to San Jose.[37] Earlier, Toronto FC had acquired an additional spot from San Jose on July 14, 2008 for use through the end of the 2013 season.[38]
