CPL Inaugural Match ~ Sat. Apr. 27th 1pm ET ~ Forge FC vs York9 ~ Tim Horton’s Field ~ CBC/OneSoccer It’s finally here; the day that the new Canadian Premier League begins.  And to be a bit dramatic about the whole thing, the day that Canada’s soccer journey really begins – or at least, that’s the hope (wish, dream) of every Canadian soccer fan, every kid that’s kicked a ball and tried to figure out...

Kit Nerd Corner : … and the rest of MLS 2019

Disclaimer : I care and because I want to. Chicago away Jock tag : waving Civic flag of Chicago Back of the neck : secondary Chicago fire wordmark letter C in a circle In a nutshell : you think you’ve seen this before, but this one is much nicer. Your first instinct might be to think that this is a redo of Toronto’s away kit from two seasons ago, and while you are on to something, you are also very wrong. This away kit is...

Toronto FC vs New England Revolution: Home Opener!

Toronto FC vs New England Revolution ~ March 17th, 730pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ TSN 4/5 It’s home opener time!  After getting their season of to a near perfect start, Toronto FC had a week off (oh CCL, one day…sigh), which given the team’s need to still gel, as well as heal some knocks isn’t a bad thing at all.  Tonight – 730 on a Sunday night is a perfectly cromulent time for a football match – TFC take...

Toronto FC vs Philadelphia Union ~ March 2, 1pm ET ~ Talen Energy Stadium ~ TSN1/4 MLS First Kick!  Rawr!  Here we go again, and a not a moment too soon.  After a turbulent pre-season, followed by a disastrous Concacaf Champions League campaign, getting on with the business of the 2019 MLS season has to be something akin to relief for Toronto FC.  With more recent disappointments still hanging over them, there is still the spectre of...

Kit Nerd Corner, MLS 2019 so far…

Disclaimer : I care and because I want to. Toronto home Jock tag : a maple leaf with the CN Tower over top of it. Back of the neck : All For One In a nutshell : the nicest training shirt you wouldn’t pay full price for. Toronto is one of the later sides to produce their new kit for the upcoming season. If you saw the leaks earlier in the month, that was it but it was slightly nicer than that. It’s an all red affair, red...

The Vocal Minority Final Countdown: 2018 Edition

Time for everyone’s favourite end of season exercise!  That’s right, it’s time for the VMP Final Countdown, when we rank every Toronto FC player that set foot on the pitch across all competitions.  It doesn’t matter how long they played, or what they did once they were in there game – if they played, they get ranked.  Unlike last year where everyone agonized over the top players and you had throw a dart...
