Toronto FC vs Orlando City SC: With the Lions in Freefall, Can TFC Take Advantage?

Toronto FC vs Orlando City SC ~ 8pm ET ~ Orlando City Stadium ~ TSN4 The last time Toronto and Orlando met, I wrote this – TFC did indeed beat the Lions but their season hasn’t looked much brighter in the intervening two months.  There was the win over the Union, and a couple of not so thrilling draws (yes they got a point, but you watched how they got them, right?), and of course the losses.  The bright spot in the past...

Toronto FC vs Sporting KC: Will The Sporks Put The Fork In TFC’s Season?

Toronto FC vs Sporting KC ~ 830pm ET ~ Children’s Mercy Park ~ TSN4   TFC must just want this week to be over; they’ve already lost three matches in a row, they’re about to play their third match in the space of a week, and they’re playing on the road against a team they’ve had little success against.  At least it’s a night game so they can watch the world cup matches – silver linings, right?...

South Couch Report – NYC v Toronto

The Part I Write Before : I don’t know if you all are like me, but I for one am relieved with Major League Soccer being back on television. Like that World Cup thing is just a pretentious mess. There’s no salary caps. There’s no TAM. There’s no GAM. And with a distinct lack of MLS players in the World Cup, how uninteresting is it? Very. Feels like it’s been forever, but hopefully very long Corner was...

Toronto FC vs New York City FC: Will It Be Another Wild One Between TFC and the Pizza Rats?

Toronto FC vs NYCFC ~ 5pm ET ~ Yankee Stadium ~ TSN4/5   Who’s ready for some MLS?!  Yeah, me neither – wouldn’t it be great if the league took at least the group stage of the World Cup off?  Surely the players aren’t excited about having to miss matches for travel, warm-ups and such?  Won’t someone please think of the players (and fans)!  Sigh… Anyway, this lack of scheduling around the...

Toronto FC vs DC United: Will The Hapless DCU Send TFC Into The World Cup Break On A High Note?

Toronto FC vs DC United ~ 8pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ TSN 1/4/5 It’s hard to concentrate on the MLS season with the start of the World Cup less then twenty-four hours away, but with one last spate of games before we all spend the next month completely distracted Toronto welcome DCU to town.   Toronto couldn’t ask for a better opponent heading into this break because DC are bad, 2012 TFC bad, painful to watch bad – which is...

Toronto FC vs Columbus Crew: Can The Reds Best Austin Celtic To Start Their Rise To The Middle Of The Pack?

Toronto FC vs Columbus Crew ~ 730pm ET ~ MAPFRE Stadium ~ TSN 1/3/4/5 Don’t panic; yet. No really, just take deep breaths and find your happy place. I know it feels like this could be that time, but even though the Supporters Shield (and a first round playoff bye) are out of reach, that red line really isn’t that far away.  With the next five games against Eastern Conference teams, Toronto have an opportunity to gain...
