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...

Episode 197 – 17/07/27 #cheersYouFuckinMuppet

The gang is all here to review the Gold Cup adventure, conduct an autopsy of the NYCFC and Colorado matches, look ahead to more NYCFC, and much more. In this episode, Tony crushes a theatre pun, Duncan tries to soften an trolling on Kristin with something she would favour, Kristin gives a Canadian rocker a long overdue shoutout and Mark couldn’t have had picked a worse time to get a sore throat.

Duane’s World: Is Armando Cooper This Year’s Chad Barrett?

I want to talk about Chad Barrett for a moment. The Chad. Duncan’s beautiful, long-gone, but not forgotten Chad. The striker who couldn’t find a net too open to miss, a ball too far away to chase, or a bro too bro-y to out bro. Chad freakin’ Barrett. In hindsight, he’s become symbolic off the simple joys that we all got watching TFC the Bad – a glowing example of the lovable losers that we all fell in love with as they slowly drove us...

The South Stand Report : Toronto v Colorado

The Part I Write Before The Match : Anything can happen, it seems. An undermanned Toronto can somehow hold their mettle to steal a point in historic legendary Yankee Stadium missing too much of their first team. So why not a thumping of Colorado. Bold Predictions : Colorado wearing their buttery Sweden kits Vazquez man of the Match performance A keeper let’s in a howler of a goal (either side) On to the Match : 5’ – GOAL...

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...
