The South Couch Report : Ottawa v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : It’s V-Cup time!  Seriously, I’m excited. I’m mostly excited because soon there will more than 5 teams *gasp!*.  Can you even imagine a national cup with more than 5 teams?  You can?  I guess if you count every other country, sure. Toronto is coming off of their first non-victory in like forever.  I don’t know how you don’t sack the whole team, but it was a draw.  I expect a comprehensive victory...

The South Couch Report : New York v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : Well, I’m running behind, full on fish and chips and I’ve got enough time to just to predictions.  Sorry.  Not really. Bold Predictions : #altitts will get two goals BWP will be held off the scoresheet Bradley will get a booking On to the Match : Quote of the Match : Is Cooper playing? [No.] Good. ~ my wife 16’ – BWP puts it into the box and Gulbrandson gets a solid shot off, but Bono gobbles...

Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls: Will It Be Fun & Games On The Jersey Shore?

Toronto FC v New York Red Bulls ~ May 19th ~ 730pm ET ~ Red Bull Arena ~ TSN2 Top of the league, six wins in a row, one of the lowest goals against in MLS and the best road record of any team – pretty nice eh?  Oh and only one loss so far as well – really nice then.  No you don’t win the season based on results in May, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the team’s success – or hoping and even...

The South Stand Report : Toronto v Minnesota

The Part I Write Before The Match : Five wins in a row. Hell, I’d have been thrilled with 2 points from the last two games instead​ of all points. Well done. We’ve learned a few important things from the last few games : the Robins have deep depth and Vanney is more tactically astute and flexible than previously imagined. Though Minnesota has shored up the defense, I’m banking on them collapsing and it being a bit of...

Toronto FC vs Minnesota United FC: Can TFC Make It Six In A Row?

  Toronto FC vs Minnesota United FC ~ May 13th ~ 3pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ CTV  Top of the league ma!  Toronto FC are currently riding high on a (team best) five wins in a row, with two surprising road wins, all within a span of twenty days (four of those wins within thirteen days), while travelling and doing some serious squad rotation – not too shabby eh?  As TFC fans we can be forgiven for still having residual trauma over...

South Couch Report : Columbus v Toronto

I can tell you my brilliant idea of squad rotation of Giovinco in/Altidore resting didn’t happen. I was sure I had nailed it. To be fair, I’m on with it as Altidore is on fire. This is still good. Bono and Chapman enter the mix with healthy equivalents on the bench, so there’s optimism in the depth and, to be fair, has been a goal-fest shy of brilliant. Bold Predictions : Kamara or Higuain will score Toronto will win...
