Meme of the Week - Dysfunctional Cursed Toronto FC

Toronto FC made a big splash this week when they announced that current Queens Park Rangers defender Ryan Nelsen would be coming back to MLS to coach the Reds this upcoming season.  There is only one, tiny complication: Nelsen is still under contract and playing...in England.

So, in typical dysfunctional TFC fashion, they are moving ahead with former Div. III college coach Fran O'Leary as their acting coach until Nelsen is done playing this season.

Nelsen is TFC's eighth head coach in seven years.  It seems like GM Kevin Payne (appointed this off season) isn't afraid to roll the dice at his new digs (he spent 1994-2012 with D.C. United).  I guess it can't get much worse, right?
