There is no fucking way you are reading this news for the first time, so I’ll get on with it.

MIGHTY ROBINS 1, SOUNDING ENTHUSIASTS 0 90+4’ – GOAL – Giovinco sends Cooper through on the right side, beats Frei, but not...

The South Couch Report – Columbus v Toronto, 1st Leg

Ok so this report is gonna be different as I am just going to watch it and fill in the blanks at the half and end. This isn’t the game that I want to miss something because I was typing up a stupid thought about Cooper flailing about and giving up a ball of the future. #couldHappen First half : The 5-3-2 (which is kinda a 3-5-2 really… Look at it! It is) was very bus-parking-esque when they lined up, but it’s proven...

South Couch Report: Toronto vs New York, 2nd leg.

South Couch Report: New York vs Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : Alright then, finally.  After a season of no particular challenge, no real drama, where no game really meant all that much, where a defeat would have led to a mere shrug, where the games often felt unimportant enough to not be worth the hassle of going down to BMO Field rather than watching on tv, finally we get a very important game as the playoffs are finally here. 69 points means TFC will be...
