    I can watch Wigan vs. Reading TAPE DELAY but not a live MLS match.

    Lame. FSC should be showing the TFC game.

  2. eric says:

    If it came down to it, I’d rather watch the superclassicito, but when is FSC going to get more than 1 MLS game per week???

    BTW, the ESPNsoccernet gamecast is surprisingly thorough…

    If you haven’t been watching, this game has been very exciting. Both teams are playing well, TFC is really going for it after 25min

  4. Haig says:

    Guevara and Wynne look fantastic, and Bruce Arena is the color commentator. To his credit, he’s praising them both.

  5. Lucidio says:

    Exciting to watch!

    TFC is moving the ball well. They are applying pressure on KC. I think they’ll be able to crack KC’s defense before the 90mins.

    I like for TFC to put one goal in early on the second half.

    On a side note, I was wondering where “sarcastic Bruce” had one.

  6. David Berger says:

    I am sick of TFC fans throwing streamers when the opposition takes a corner. Support your team but don’t interfere with the game. Not cool.

  7. FC Uptown says:

    Somebody is tired of streamers….alert Commisioner Garber….

  8. Jacob says:

    By all accounts, sounds like an exciting game. Which is just my luck as I have no way of watching it.

  9. Haig says:

    Guevara is having an amazing game. Gets his second with a goal of the year candidate, a free kick from 25 yards that swerves perfectly into the top corner.

    Bad news for RBNY: Toronto is good.

  10. Guevara looked great and so did Marvel….

    but the Bulls have Toronto’s number and Guevara rarely has good back to back games so

    kiss that winning streak goodbye TFC fans the Bulls are coming to town…

  11. Sean says:

    Watched the last 35 minutes on MLSLive.tv, and Toronto is completely unrecognizable as the stumblebum shitbirds of ’07. This team has a legit chance – Guevara is playing as well as I’ve ever seen him, and Mo Edu will be the best midfielder in the league by the playoffs, if he isn’t transferred out for truckload of cash.

    Of course they’re thin, but what team in this league has legit depth? 2+ mil doesn’t pay for depth.

  12. Spencer says:

    You can’t say the NYRB has TFC’s number. They have only been in the league one year.

  13. Geoff says:

    I’m headed to the Energy drink @ TFC on thursday night…i’m feeling another brace from el lobo

  14. Aljarov says:

    Great game from Guevara and Robinson in particular. KC suprisingly flat in attack.

    TFC could have scored 2-3 more but squandered good chances.

    2nd place – swett. Shame Mo felt the need to throw 6 points away before getting his arse in gear.

  15. Leave the Toronto fans alone.

    Go to a game and do the same to their players. Up the ante a little.

    I mean…if everyone behaved liked them and showed the support they are showing their team, MLS would provide the theater everyone wants.

    It’s almost in Chicago now. Kudos to those devoted Firehouse fans that try to get the rest of us into the game.

  16. SoccerMan says:

    I find it funny how journalists were dubbing TFC to be the worst team of 2008 without knowing what cap space they had left!

    Kudos to Mo Johnston for brining in these players and Carver for running a tight ship.

    TFC will make the playoffs this year, mark my words!

  17. Geoff says:

    Heres my prediction for Ives’ best XI for this week.

  18. ArteEtLabore says:

    yeah – Shep Messing kept calling TFC a ‘train wreck’. I’ll bet he’s eating his words now.

  19. Matt says:


    TFC fans already have the biggest heads in the league. They could well explode if the team is any good.

  20. Kyle says:

    Funny, what you call having a “big” head; We call supporting our club… Up the reds.

  21. inkedAG says:

    Good one Matt!

    Toronto fans remind me of the English National team. They think they are WAY better than they actually are.

  22. Andrew says:

    I’m loving the irony. Americans complaining about Canadians having heads too big for their shoulders… or is this just a matter of Americans joining the rest of Canada in hating Toronto? Either way, it hilarious! COME ON REDS!!!

  23. Steve T. says:

    Any support for any MLS team is good news. I’m a Metro fan for life, but am loving what toronto fans are bringing to the table. TFC is my second favorite team.

  24. Revolootion says:

    I’m totally jealous of TFC now, not only are they the envy in terms of support, their team is gorgeous, they play exciting football and they are actually very good this season.

    I hope they make the playoffs, their fans deserve it.
