South Couch Report : New England v Toronto

The Part I Write Before : Toronto are just one game away from beginning their ascension to the top of the table, top of the league. This is probably that game. Right? On to the Match : 4′ – GOAL – Toronto gives up the ball right around half, two quick passes and Penilla has a nice long one before taking a shot 20 yards out sliding it low and to the right of Bono. This can’t be an omen of things to come. TEA...

Toronto FC vs New England Revolution: Can TFC Escape From Foxy Foxborough With Points and Injury Free?

Toronto FC vs New England Revolution ~ 730pm ET ~ Gillette Stadium ~ TSN After Wednesday night’s loss to Seattle, a trip to the terrible turf in foxy Foxborough sounds mildly terrifying.  With the list of Toronto players in sick bay growing seemingly every day (Victor Vazquez and Nicolas Hasler now added to the list), having the team play where Danny Koevermans’ ACL went to die is mildly worrisome.  However, that is the...

South Couch Report: Toronto vs Chicago Fire

The Part I Write Before : Well, that whole penalty shootout thing still feels like a kick in the nuts, but anyone suggesting ‘you threw away a bunch of MLS games for nothing’ is very much wrong, that CCL run was well worth it even without silverware and the club world cup to look forward to. Anyway, back to MLS it is. 3 points from 5 games isn’t great obviously, but hey, TFC had 7 points from 6 games to start 2017...

South Couch Report : C.D. Guadalajara v Toronto, CONCACAF Champions League Final, 2nd Leg (FIGHT!)

The Part I Write Before : Guys. We had a good run. No center-backs. Bradley is playing defense. Zavaleta and Moor injured. Bold Predictions : We’ll have fun. We’ll reminisce over the time we defeated two massive Mexican sides. We’ll look ahead to Chicago. Only partially sorry. On to the Match : 9′ – Altidore gets sent down the left side, Chivas keeper comes out to challenge and Jozy tries to chip, but is...

Toronto FC vs Houston Dynamo: With TFC Focused on CCL, Will The Kids Be Alright In Houston?

Toronto FC vs Houston Dynamo ~ 3pm ET ~ BBVA Compass Stadium ~ TSN1/3/4/CTV I know that everyone’s looking ahead to next Wednesday’s CCL Final away leg, but the MLS season waits for no one, not even the ‘best team in MLS’.  So get set for another day out with the kids – whee!  Really all they have to do is not get blown out (hey there Whitecaps), and see some consistent play and it’ll be a nominally...

South Couch Report: Toronto vs CD Guadalajara

The part I write before the match: Fuck winter. Yeah, I’m staying home again for this one, biggest game ever or not. I’m done with being cold, and hey it’s tradition now, superstition, the 1 CCL game I went to was the Rapids game when it was relatively warm, and that one ended 0-0, who’d be ok with that tonight?  You’re all welcome. So yeah, here we are, in the fucking final, taking on Chivas MEX as they...
