Jermain Defoe no longer can be taken seriously.

After all, “dropping down to (Major League Soccer’s) level” comes with risks.

And, moving to Toronto FC, the equivalent of “a bottom-six Championship” side will prove disastrous.

According to The Guardian’s Daniel Taylor, a Eurosnob who published the aforementioned hatchet job Saturday, Defoe will be heading “for a dead end” after he’s officially unveiled as a TFC player on Monday in downtown Toronto.

A bit much, isn’t it?

To be fair, we can only half-fault Taylor, a pundit whose Premier League arrogance undoubtedly prevented him from providing readers with critical details that paint the entire TFC picture post-2013.

In it, he goes over TFC’s disastrous history, including records and front-office falling-outs.

He refers back to previous pieces published by Toronto-area reporters that rightly once ripped the team to smithereens.
