For the second time in 4 matches, TFC has shocked both their opponent and their supporters. The first surprise was against a strong Seattle side. The second was this past Saturday against an unbeaten Columbus side on the season, and a team that has had Toronto’s number since they joined MLS.
After 2 huge back-to-back wins to start the season, TFC traveled to Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah looking for an unprecedented 3rd straight victory. Needless to say things were derailed pretty quickly. A Salt Lake squad that came to within a penalty kick of winning the 2013 MLS Cup showed their class, led by an […]
It took 7 years and approximately $100 million, but it finally happened. In front of an announced crowd of 22,591 at BMO Field, Toronto FC, led by all 3 designated players, won their 2nd straight game of the season setting a franchise record for the best start to an MLS season. It may not sound […]
After coming off a surprising win away at Seattle, Toronto FC look to carry that momentum into their home opener in front of a sold out BMO Field against one of the few teams that was worse than them last season: DC United.
For Toronto FC, I don’t think anyone could have dreamt up a better scenario than what transpired at CenturyLink on Saturday afternoon in Seattle. Jermain Defoe opened his MLS and Toronto FC scoring account with not one, but two, perfectly placed goals in the most clinical and composed fashion I’ve seen in a […]
After what feels like the longest off-season ever, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Toronto FC will look to kick-off their 8th season in winning fashion today, away in Seattle, in front of a full house of screaming Sounders fans. Seattle has already got their season off to a perfect start after […]
After an incredible flurry of high profile off-season moves that have vaulted TFC into the playoff picture for the very first time, on paper, the boys in red must now get the real work done on the pitch. With pre-season all wrapped up, its hard to say that the Red's are dazzling anyone. But after […]
Toronto FC's 7th season in MLS ended more or less the same way the previous 6 did: bottom three in the league and on the outside of the playoff picture, looking in. Toronto FC, for all intents and purposes, was a club dangerously teetering on the edge of irrelevance. Looking back on the offseason that […]
It’s not getting any easier for Ryan Nelsen and Toronto FC. The Reds have managed to stay undefeated at home through three games this season despite a daunting schedule that saw them take on first place Dallas (2-2 draw), second place Kansas City (2-1 win) and defending champion LA Galaxy (2-2 draw). Saturday’s visit from […]
This stuff happens. At least that’s the message Ryan Nelsen delivered to reporters following Saturday’s 2-2 draw to the LA Galaxy. Jonathan Osorio’s first MLS goal gave Toronto a late 2-1 lead and what looked like a full three points until Jose Villarreal’s acrobatic stoppage time equalizer salvaged a point for the Galaxy. “Late goals happen,” […]
Ryan Nelsen and Toronto FC will take to BMO field for the first time this season as they play host to the star studded LA Galaxy. The game will serve as a second home opener for the Reds at their summer home, after playing host to Kansas City at the larger capacity Rogers Center […]
Another coaching change, a roster overhaul and more empty promises. On first glance it looks like your average offseason for Toronto FC. Upon further review, however, this is very different. Seven years of trial and error may have finally been enough for Toronto FC. This offseason, with yet another coaching vacancy to fill, the club […]
Between injuries, suspensions and international call-ups, Mariner will have few options to choose from in tonight’s clash with Portland. Dicoy Williams, Doneil Henry, Terry Dunfield and Ryan Johnson are all answering the bell for their national teams, while Logan Emory (suspension) and Jeremy Hall (ankle) are also unavailable for the match. Newcomer Darren O’Dea is […]
It has been quite the up and down season thus far for Toronto FC. So let’s get right too it: First Half Awards Best Moment of the Season: Danny Koevermans gives TFC first win Thank God for Danny Koevermans, right? I don’t think the long-suffering Toronto fan base could have handled ten straight losses to […]
What a week it’s been for Toronto FC. The week got underway with a 3-0 loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Union. Just a day later, forward Joao Plata left the team to go play back home in Ecuador with LCD Quito. Nick Soolsma followed him out the door on Wednesday. Wednesday night saw the […]
