The South Stand Report : Toronto v Minnesota

The Part I Write Before The Match : Five wins in a row. Hell, I’d have been thrilled with 2 points from the last two games instead​ of all points. Well done. We’ve learned a few important things from the last few games : the Robins have deep depth and Vanney is more tactically astute and flexible than previously imagined. Though Minnesota has shored up the defense, I’m banking on them collapsing and it being a bit of...

Toronto FC vs Minnesota United FC: Can TFC Make It Six In A Row?

  Toronto FC vs Minnesota United FC ~ May 13th ~ 3pm ET ~ BMO Field ~ CTV  Top of the league ma!  Toronto FC are currently riding high on a (team best) five wins in a row, with two surprising road wins, all within a span of twenty days (four of those wins within thirteen days), while travelling and doing some serious squad rotation – not too shabby eh?  As TFC fans we can be forgiven for still having residual trauma over...

South Couch Report : Columbus v Toronto

I can tell you my brilliant idea of squad rotation of Giovinco in/Altidore resting didn’t happen. I was sure I had nailed it. To be fair, I’m on with it as Altidore is on fire. This is still good. Bono and Chapman enter the mix with healthy equivalents on the bench, so there’s optimism in the depth and, to be fair, has been a goal-fest shy of brilliant. Bold Predictions : Kamara or Higuain will score Toronto will win...

Episode 186 – 17/05/09 #mormonFuzzy

We’ve got most of the gang back to review two games, look forward to two more, get hyped about the Canadian Premier League, told a rumour about a player’s return for next season, and the rest of the usual malarkey. In this episode, Mark makes a killer Irish rock music pun, Kristin suggests a late-night entertainment business and Duncan reassured us he only missed one week. Give us any rating on iTunes, when you get a chance. It would...

The South Couch Report : Seattle v Toronto

The Part I Write Before The Match : So Vanney has opted to rest Vazquez, Giovinco, Beitashour and some others.  Probably for the best. I’m not expecting much from this road trip since a home stand including a Wednesday home game and an upcoming Wednesday road game. Guys, the Canadian Premier League is for realz. I’m thinking about a Hamilton v Winnipeg game.  Maybe even an away day.  Magical. Bold Predictions : Two debutants One of...
