The South Couch Report: Toronto vs New York City

Another South Couch report for a home game? I’m afraid so, it’s a poor showing from the vocal minority as other commitments means a lonely afternoon for full time supporter Kristin. 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.

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...

Toronto FC vs New York City FC: Can TFC Overcome Player Absences To Get A Result in NYC?

Toronto FC vs New York City FC ~ July 19th ~ 730pm ET ~ Yankee Stadium ~ TSN4  MLS is back!  Many of the players are still missing, but the league swings back into action tonight with seven matches (oh and there’s a couple of those Gold Cup games on too, but who wants to watch that).  Toronto FC gets started with a trip to historic Yankee stadium (the house that Villa built) to take on the pizza rats in their first meeting since...
