Hall on the move again, shipped to Toronto FC from FC Dallas for draft pick

Jeremy Hall is acquiring quite the jersey collection in a short amount of time.

The one-time U.S. youth product and Generation adidas signing is on the move again after being traded from FC Dallas to Toronto FC on Tuesday in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.

Hall has been traded three times in a little more than a year, starting with a move from the New York Red Bulls to Portland last November. He lasted with the Timbers until August, when the club shipped him to FC Dallas in exchange for Eric Alexander.

Part of the problem for Hall is that despite being a midfielder by trade, he's often been deployed as a fullback. That trend figures to continue considering TFC coach Aron Winter's comments following the trade.

"Defense is one of the areas that we want to address this offseason and acquiring Jeremy is a positive step forward for our club," Winter said in a press release.

What do you think about the move? Hope to see Hall get a chance in the midfield with TFC?

    Dumb move for dallas to get him in the first place

  2. Ossington Mental Youth says:

    we got him for nothing, ideally Winter can train him to play however he needs him to play

  3. Ossington Mental Youth says:

    looks like a depth move to me considering we were playing stinson very far out of position when ecks got injured

  4. T says:

    all these trades! :O

  5. TonyT says:

    There is a reason he keeps getting traded …..He caused us the CCL game in Dallas vs Pumas, he was burned twice which lead to 2 goals from Pumas.

  6. Mo says:

    Good riddance. Bad move by the ex TD Gorman. We liked Alexander down here in Dallas.

  7. solles says:

    I think Hall has potential, he just needs to be used properly in the right system for him. Maybe that will happen in Toronto.

  8. JJ says:

    Hall is terrible. He is all athlete and zero skill. He is now with the right team.

  9. mnmike says:

    Part of the problem is he’s not a good mf by trade.

  10. Yaznasty says:

    Does the TFC player in the picture know that he isn’t the GK?

  11. Big Chil says:

    That’s what Total Football is all about.

  12. ec says:

    Bad news, I like Hall. Who’s career has gotten better when they went to Toronto?

  13. inkedAG says:

    On one hand he probably would have been a good player if Osorio didn’t kill any development.

    On the other, this is his fourth team.

  14. Miggy says:

    I like this move. He has the offensive skill for Winter’s system. They need to move Eckersley to the middle, he is a terrific defender. They also need Adrian Cann back in the center.

  15. Wei says:

    TFC is on the rise

  16. Ossington Mental Youth says:

    ech, dont think ecks will be playing in the middle, pretty sure another commanding CB will get picked up, Ecks has even said he hates playing CB

  17. timber fan says:

    Sorry to say… As was inferred in the article… Jeremy is not a defender. Puyol is a defender. Jeremy is like demarcus beasley: fast, skilled, limited field vision, a feather.

  18. MarkAntonio says:

    It’s funny how any POS player can be labelled a “US Youth Product”
