Toronto FC v NYC FC: Can The Reds Take Another Bite Out of the Big Apple?

TFC vs NYCFC, Yankee Stadium, 5pm ET, Sportsnet One Well last week was fun wasn’t it? It really was; a surprising win (and clean sheet!) to start the season?  What’s not to like?  Today in their second game of the season, Toronto FC make the trek to the house the Pirlo built, historic Yankee Field to take on NYCFC.  Even though this is only the second game of the season it already seems as though the expectations for TFC...

Tsubasa Endoh’s up with a first team contract.

All along it seemed like it was going to come down to a battle between Tsubasa Endoh and Mo Babouli for who’d take the 28th and final roster spot for TFC.

No recent trades or signing buzz (though the waiving of Ahmed Kantari certainly counts as addition by subtraction) and only one pick in the first two rounds, and that wasn’t even the traditional early pick what with that whole bordering on mediocrity 12th place last season leaving them with the 9th overall pick....
