I hope it stays cold when they come here. The Mexican teams were absolutely hobbled by that.

They absolutely can, but the injuries are starting to pile up and that could be a problem. Even at 7-12-12, Chivas are probably the equal to a top flight MLS side.

The New York/Chivas game today had one of the most ridiculous box scores I've ever seen. NY outshot them 20-1 and 9-0 on net, but the game ended 0-0.

The NYRB are an absolute choke artist team. Throw the match against Colorado on Saturday. We could be going to the World Champions League boys, what a time to be alive. Best 12 month span in Toronto sports history

Raptors best record in the East, second best in the NBA, most franchise wins.
Leafs most franchise wins and points, going to the playoffs for a second year in a row, first time that's happened since 2002-03, 2003-04
TFC: best record in MLS history, MLS Cup champs, off to CONCACAF finals
Argonauts: CFL champs
Blue Jays: Start 8-4 on the year

You gotta admit, Bradley's penalty kick was fucking hilarious.

Feels like they got robbed by circumstance. Chivas were dogshit against each of Seattle, New York and TFC, and Seattle and TFC were both completely ravaged with injuries. TFC had literally the toughest possible matchup they could have faced in each round and still made it to the finals. They even had to re-qualify for this tournament and win the Canadian Championship a second time after Canada Soccer changed the qualification rules midstream.

Not much you can do when literally every central defender on your team was hurt going into the final leg and your second and third best penalty takers were hurt and unable to participate in the shootout.

It is injury related, he is not going anywhere.

Welp, bad reporting by the Score then :paulrus: They said a transfer was apparently in the works.

They rejected a transfer offer. Everything else is rumors.

Looking all but official:



TFC have massive holes to fill with Giovinco, Vazquez and van der Wiel gone, and Champions League starts in just 20 days.

I get it, the core is on the wrong side of 30 and expensive. Plus it is no secret that the new guy was brought in to get younger. It's just too bad that this core only won one title.

Apparently they're going to sign Terrence Boyd, who probably is more of a Ricketts replacement.

KJ is saying that a big DP signing will be announced in the coming weeks. Someone in his prime too.

I'm not surprised. They make a ton on TFC they'd be stupid to squander that goodwill with the fans.

According to Bill Manning they lost money last year.
