The South Stand Report : Toronto v Montreal

  The Part I Write Before The Match : I’m not going to lie to you, blog and readers, I’m almost idealist about everything with this side.  Tonight could just send me on a footie euphoria bubble that will float away.  It’s crazy to be this optimistic, where “burn it to the ground, start over” should’ve been, and could’ve been, the club motto [in latin, it’s : cremabit super terram initium ~ Ed.]. So Montreal come in after a...

Toronto FC vs Montreal Impact: Can A Short-handed TFC Put A Nail In The Impact’s Playoff Hopes?

Toronto FC vs Montreal Impact ~ Sept. 20th ~ 730pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ TSN1/4/5 Every game at this point in the season is a big game – some teams are chasing records, some are chasing the red line – thanks to the MLS scheduling gods that cheekily put all of the games between TFC and the Impact at the end of the season, we get to see both this evening.  The last time the two teams met a few weeks ago, the cheesemakers were on...

South Couch Report : Los Angeles v Toronto

Part I Write Before The Match : Lol. LA Galaxy are weak. Toronto is the toast of the league. Like you could’ve predicted a reality where this could have happened. Toronto is missing Seba and Jozy due to precaution. More like an awesome precaution, am I right? Vazquez as a forward. Ok. Sure. Why the fuck not. On to the Match : 1’ – No Vic Rauter? Ugh. Fine. 5’ – I demand that any reference to Bradford Jamieson MUST...

Toronto FC vs LA Galaxy: Can TFC Dim The Galaxy Even When Leaving Some Of The Stars At Home?

Toronto FC vs LA Galaxy ~ Sept. 16th ~ 1030pm ET ~ StubHub Center ~ TSN1/3/4  Toronto FC are heading into the final stretch of the season seemingly in control; top of the league by a solid margin, no regular players suffering from injury and a five game winning streak in which they outscored their opponents 17-3 – not too shabby – so is the pressure to win the Supporters Shield, break the LA Galaxy’s points record...

The South Stand Report : Toronto v San Jose

The Part I Write Before The Match : Seriously, I don’t know what to put here. Toronto good. Anything they do seems to work, even to a small degree (like salvage a draw). San Jose has Wondolowski, who I am a fan of. Best hitman in league history. So, Toronto wins. I hope. Still predicting 3-2. Bold Predictions : Vazquez 2 goals or assists Vako 1 goal or assist Giovinco booking On to the Match : 9’ – @malarkeyFC notices that...

The South Couch Report : Montreal v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : It feels like forever since I saw Toronto play Montreal. Doesn’t feel like forever? It feels like forever? Bold Predictions : Montreal does not win Vazquez 2 assists Someone’s getting a straight red card On to the Match : 10’ – Altidore has a go from about 15 yards out, fires it just wide of the post. 12’ – wonderful through ball by Delgado, shot fires well wide. 16’ – Dzemaili...
