South Couch Report. Orlando City SC vs Toronto FC

The Part I Write Before : First game I’ve watched in ages this one, life and stuff keeps happening so I’ve been limited to highlights and lowlights, so to me it seems like TFC games are relentless roller coasters. I’m intrigued to see how they look in all the slow bits in between, cos what I’m hearing and reading doesn’t sound too positive.  Time is clearly running out for the playoff run to get going,...

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...

South Couch Report : Kansas City v Toronto

The Part I Write Before : This is the second week in a row where we’ve been ‘treated’ to the McFlurry dessert of MLS (and specifically this version of Toronto) after the gourmet steak dinner of the World Cup. After the emotional rollercoaster of the game on Wednesday vs Minnesota (apologies, schedule was insane), I cannot imagine as dysfunctional a game as that for the second match in a row. Expectation level is...

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?...

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...

South Couch Report: Toronto FC vs DC United

The Part I Write Before : Very hectic evening. The same reason I didn’t go to the game is the same reason I missed the first ten minutes or so, and by the time I’ve finished dinner it’s gone horribly wrong. Anyway. On to the Match : 37′ Alright, let’s get this fired up, TFC are 2-0 down, and are really not looking good. Goal – 45′ Bono’s made a bunch of good saves, but then with TFC...
