The Mighty Reds are still crap on the road, but if it is of and consolidation, so is most of the league. So much for being unique.
Lately, our forwards have been absent for anything resembling regular service that could turn into one of those back-of-the-net thingies. In all fairness, possession has been favouring Toronto in many of their games, but on target shots are rarer than a TFC all-star.
San Jose has two Toronto turf rejects. Politically, i can't hate the Quakes. I like Yallop and their supporters were robbed of a quality side due to bigger dollar signs guiding the owners to the promised land that is Houston (1837). Match predictions : 2-1, 3-0, 4-0, 2-0 all pro-TFC
1 min - Huckaby is already getting a song. Sadly his song is better than the 'TFC Olé' that followed it.
2 min - Adult film star Joe Cannon (AfsJC) makes a sprawling save with his giant hands.
6 min - Ricketts cross, Ibrahim holds it too long, fires wide
7 min - Ibrahim fires a shot wide but AfsJC doesn't have the 'length' to reach it. Yes, those jokes will write themselves.
10 min - Ibby chipped AfsJC, Rosenlund got to it but clearly offside.
14 min - 19SJ gets a low shot that Sutton grabs easily. Marshall goes down hurt, but will continue the match
16 min - Ricketts fires a low ball across the grass, AfsJC 'thrusts' himself as the ball to stop it
18 min - SJ free kick fails against the wall, but not before Ibby gets booked for encroachment I suspect
23 min - Dichio gets a song, guy behind is recording it for CBC... So i sang it.
25 min - Ibby gets held for 10 yards and the grabby one goes into the book. Ensuing free kick, Robert bends it just wide of the right post.
33 min - Wynne fires it in, AfsJC double-fists it away. That guy is all about fis... nevermind.
37 min - Laurent double-teamed beats both for a cross, cleared out for a corner. Laurent's corner flies by everyone in red.
Half-time emotion : same as it ever was, they better get better sometime soon
49 min - Toronto gets tunnel vision as they cannot seem to use the entire east side of the pitch
51 min - now they don't want to shoot. If the game could be won with passing alone, we'd be the greatest side in the world.
55 min - Ricketts crosses the ball to clear the entire 18-yard box. How effective.
63 min - Huckaby can no longer take the punishment that the artificial surface dishes out and has to be subbed out. Good thing we're holding out for Dickov... Probably not a bitch.
68 min - Ibby gets bulldogged down and the ref points to the spot. SJ Riley is getting the business from the ref and his own teammates. Che Guevera steps up for the penalty, fires it slightly to his left, stopped by AfsJC 'girth', big rebound is popped way over the bar.
70 min - SUB - in comes Cunningham, out comes Rosenlund
74 min - Wynne to a shot that ended up nowhere near the net, but at least someone is shooting.
78 min - we need a forward. We need Schweinsteiger! I know he not a forward, but his name is hella-fun to yell.
83 min - TFC controlled the entire half yet can't do anything in the final third of the pitch that could be mistaken as threatening, less the blown penalty
87 min - SJ first legit attempt at net results in nothing. What a shit game...
89 min - Where are the no frills players from Tuesday? At least they gave a shit.
90+2 min - blow the damn whistle already
Man of the match : Ibrahim
"Budgie" award for heart : nobody worthy today...
Thumbs up : umm, no goals conceded
Thumbs down : few shots threatened, the raving disinterested by the players for the last 20 minutes
Goat : the alcohol/testosterone fuelled fracas that happened infront of us post match.
