The South Stand Report : Toronto v Portland

  The Part I Write Before The Match : I honestly don’t know what to put here. I expect Toronto to field a good team. Portland will do the same. Hopefully it doesn’t rain. Um… No lightning delays either. Toronto came off a less than good outing against a very underachieving, bottom of the table DC and salvaged a draw. After struggling against the poor teams in this league, pattern dictates Portland is going to...

Toronto FC vs Portland Timbers: Will It Be Timber To The Visitors, Or A Chainsaw Massacre?

Toronto FC vs Portland Timbers ~ August 12th ~ 6pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ TSN2 If a Portland teams falls at BMO and there’s no one around is it still a loss?  Trick question, even in the dark times BMO Field was never empty.  Lame attempts at joking/philosophising aside, this afternoon’s (is 6pm still afternoon?  This evening?), match against Portland should be more to Toronto’s liking; playing a top team on the upswing,...

The South Couch Report : DC v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : Well, the line-ups are out and Toronto are not about to phone it in against the bottom side. The only change is the debut of new signing and Liechtenstein international, No. 26 Nicolas Hasler, and his timing couldn’t be more perfect with Beitashour still out and Alseth recently injured. The biggest question is whether or not we’re going to see old Seba (free kicks, heads up passing, taking select...

The South Couch Report: Toronto vs New York City

Your humble correspondent relaxes on the air conditioned couch and so it’s on to the report. The Part I Write Before The Match : Well I wrote an entire article that you’ve no doubt already read, the tl;dr … TFC will be more or...

Toronto FC v New York City FC: They’re ba-aaack.

These guys again. For whatever reason MLS seems to have scheduled a bunch of teams to play each other twice in quick succession round about now, Columbus-Philly, Orlando-Atlanta, probably others I’m too lazy to track down right now. For TFC, we get the joy of playing against the Pizza Rats again on Sunday, a mere 11 days after taking them on in the garish, sponsor filled, weirdly shaped nightmare that is the soccer version of...

The South Stand Report : Toronto v Colorado

The Part I Write Before The Match : Anything can happen, it seems. An undermanned Toronto can somehow hold their mettle to steal a point in historic legendary Yankee Stadium missing too much of their first team. So why not a thumping of Colorado. Bold Predictions : Colorado wearing their buttery Sweden kits Vazquez man of the Match performance A keeper let’s in a howler of a goal (either side) On to the Match : 5’ – GOAL...
