Toja's Smashing The Record

As I pointed out a few weeks ago, Toja is on pace to set the all-time record for fouls committed in a season in the MLS. Since then he's up his pace. He's now committed 61 in 18 games. Keep in mind most years committing 61 fouls is good enough for a top 5 (or should that be worst 5?) finish for the season. Toja's managed it in just 18 games. At this rate he's on pace to commit 102 in 30 games. That would blow away the current record of 83 fouls committed in 31 games. Diego Serna did that with the Miami Fusion back in 2000. More so, for a playing that is so dangerous offensively he's conspicuously absent from the fouls suffered top 10. in fact, 3 of his Dallas teammates have suffered as many or more. Toja has a lot of talent but he still has a lot to learn about some of the finer points of the beautiful game.
