Toronto FC vs Colorado Rapids: Can TFC Take Advantage of the Sadsack Rapids?

Toronto FC vs Colorado Rapids ~ Sat. July 22nd ~ 7pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ TSN1/4 It’s game day and Toronto FC are back home to take on the woeful Colorado Rapids.  TFC are coming off a wild one in the Big Apple, in which they grabbed a road point (but looked like they could have won), lost Seba to injury and saw coach Greg Vanney get tossed by the ref.  There was also the – still controversial – offside/no goal call on...

South Couch Report : New York v Toronto

Long day. No predictions. No insight.  I called for a win on the road.  Ambitious, I know. On To The Match : 12’ – GOAL – Ball finds its way into the box, first hit cross by Spencer, full volley to Ashtone Morgan, and buries it like a pro for his first goal and Kristin squees uncontrollably for seven-to-ten minutes somewhere. PIZZA RATS 0, ROBINS 1 26’ – YELLOW – Moor booked for something. 31’ – SUB...

The Part I Write Before The Match : Got home late.  No time!   Bold Predictions : Larin scores Toronto wins Vazquez is amazing On to the Match : 18’ – GOAL – Giovinco takes a ball from Delgado, cuts a pretty pass through four defenders to Altidore, one touch to settle, one to put it underneath Bendik. PURPS 0, ROBINS 1 24’ – Giovinco free kick from 20 yards out nearly makes Duncan choke on his drink as he beats...

Toronto FC vs Orlando City SC: Will TFC Go Into The Gold Cup Break On A High Note?

Toronto FC vs Orlando City SC ~ Wed July 5th ~ 730pm ET ~ Orlando City Stadium ~ TSN1  Saturday night in frisky Frisco did not go as planned for Toronto FC, they were vulnerable to FC Dallas’ speedy counterattack and didn’t adjust until well into the game.  It didn’t help that they were missing not only Victor Vazquez’s creative quality in the midfield, but that they had two outside backs making their first...

The South Couch Report : Dallas v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : I have to believe that this is the game where we come back down to reality.  I’m not saying that it’s the match where they get hammered into dust, just, you know, lose.  It’s more playing the numbers and the odds rather than a pessimism towards Toronto. The mighty robins are without Beitashour with an injury to his pancreas, which boggles my mind, horrifies me and the internal struggle about making...
