South Couch Report: Toronto FC vs Club America

The Part I Write Before The Game: I optimistically bought tickets for this one, but then stupidly went to Saturday’s game and it reminded me of how I don’t like standing out in the cold for hours, and then tonight’s weather forecast got all ‘special weather statement’ and so once again it’s a South Couch report. Kudos to all of you who went, but I’m too old for that shit. Bloody hell, the semi...

The South Couch Report: Toronto vs Columbus.

The part I write before the game: South Couch Report? goddamn do you ever go to games any more?  Back off, I’m sick (well, more recovering from being sick really, which wasn’t helped by going to Tuesday’s game) and also, fuck you, I went to a game at BMO Field in February!

VMP Final Countdown 2017: Number 7 – Drew Moor

Highest: 5 Lowest: 14 Average ranking: 9.12 Duncan: 11 – Bit of a rough year for Drew. Finding out about heart issues can’t be a fun time, and when he got back from that, he never quite looked as good as he did before. Looked just a bit slow which left him having to make last ditch tackles, or blocks which is always a dangerous situation for a defender to put himself in and for a while there towards the end of the season...
