The Welshman believes Sociedad will hold off the challenge of championship rivals Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna, as the Spanish season draws to an exciting climax.
Toshack also pointed to stars such as Xabi Alonso, Darko Kovacevic, Sander Westerveld, Nihat Kahveci and Bjorn Tore Kvarme whom he brought to the club as the reason behind Real's success this term.
"My heart tells me that they (Sociedad) are going to win the league, and if I'm honest, my head does as well," said the former Liverpool striker.
"I saw them in Mallorca and I realised that I signed five of their foreign first-team players.
"What they are achieving is an example of the eye for signings I have."
Toshack went on to express his surprise at the recent capitulation of another former club, Real Madrid.
"There has been an incredible change, going from league leader and favourite in the Champions League, to being behind Depor and Real (Sociedad) and having crashed out of Europe after conceding a flood of goals.
"I see that a lot of their players are very drained physically."
