    TFC 2018

    The season has begun and begun well with TFC carrying a 2 nil lead into the home leg of the CCL round of 16! A fine headed goal by Jonathan Osorio (assisted by Seba) and a superb side-volley goal from Giovinco (assisted by Auro) along with at least one hugely clutch save from Bono has put TFC in a commanding position to move into the CCL quarter-finals! My only question mark for Tuesday is the pitch!

    Lucas Cavallini

    Thanks! Had to put something in there ... in English. All the other posts were in Spanish.

    TFC 2018

    Agreed!

    I'd just like him to play stronger. He gets knocked around too easily.

    That's why they brought these guys in!

    CPL General

    I think the CPL will have to earn that. We'll definitely be two or three notches below MLS and/or Liga MX for many years to come, both on the field and in the stands. Just because we are recognized as D1 in Canada by Soccer Canada, we have to be realistic. Give it five or ten years. Right now, we're just a paper league. Hopefully by this time next year we'll be into our first season and we can start to prove ourselves to the naysayers! It will take time.

    I would not mind seeing a well funded rival to the NHL even if it to just temporarily urinate on their corn flakes!

    I've now done the same. I was guilty of quoting LOSF (as we used to know and dislike him) in the past. My apologies!

    I consider your statement re Shermanator to be rude and disrespectful. I don't know Shermanator but I know I would not make that kind of statement even if I did.

    I think your Edit may be closer to reality. That said, the field to the north of the soccer field in the jpeg looks like it might have room for a larger facility.

    A new AND retractable roof! The old one tears multiple times per year.

    It should have been offside!

    TFC 2018

    I see the 3-5-2 as a defacto six at the back as necessary with holding mid Bradley often becoming the 4th CB when required and with Morrow on the left and (last night) Van der Weil on the right taking care of the wide threats. For me it's a more flexible game plan with the wingbacks playing such an important role at both ends of the field!

    TFC 2018

    Absolutely! What was up with that? It's the kind of non-call that leads the supporters to question the professional integrity of an official.

    TFC 2018

    . I thought Moor was the most reliable and stable of the three last night. Zavs had a bad start with two early giveaways. Mavinga, while he did make the game saving and brilliant tackle in stoppage time (although it was clearly offside and should have been flagged), he was asleep at the switch on their away goal. That was all way too easy!

    TFC 2018

    Most definitely offside on that last minute near breakaway!

    TFC 2018

    Ya I was thinking the same thing. The fact he speaks Spanish might be helpful too. The recent success of Lucas Cavalini may have opened some eyes to the possibility of a Canadian on one's team.

    TFC 2018

    Awesome night. Great job TFC. Bradley was a monster and to my mind was the MOTM. When he got direct and started carrying the ball forward, for me, that's when the game changed although we were doing well throughout. It's a shame about the away goal though. That just should not have happened, at least not like it did!

    Herdman new head coach

    There have to "don't go" areas or these threads would be totally off topic mayhem!

    The opposition supporters certainly will!

    Herdman new head coach

    I just don't think it's a good idea to bring any politics into this discussion. Everybody is entitled to their political opinions of course but not in a soccer thread.

    Do we really want to go in this direction?
