The World Soccer Thread
Well I'm a little late in getting this thread up and running. But ya know what they say-better late than never!
It's that time of the year again-the MLS soccer season has been underway for about 3 weeks now and the Reds are off to a 1-2 start in their quest to make the post season for the first time in their fourth year of existence. After a disappointing first 2 games to start off the season which saw the the FC fall to the Crew and Revolution, the Reds won their home opener this past Thursday 2-1! DeRo scored both our goals.
The FC play the Colorado Rapids (1-1-1) today at 5 pm on the road. For those of you who have a rogers digital box they will be showing the game on channel 501 (free preview channel).
There's been lots of changes, new head coach (Preki), loss of players (Serioux , Gueverra , Gerba), new faces (too many to mention lol), and last but not least we got GRASS FINALLY!
I believe were making the playoffs this year fellas! And were hosting the MLS Championship so there's something to gun for! (Wishful thinking I know, I know, but I can dream can't I? )
For those of you who haven't been to a home game, I suggest you check it out. An FC home game is the best sporting experience I have ever been to. Just lots of fun man. Those of you who have been, now what I'm talking about.
Anyways, Let's Go Reds!
THIS IS OUR HOUSE!

There's no direction with the FC from management to the coaching. Like the problems the Raptors have had for the last couple seasons, too many new faces which doesn't allow them to build a strong chemistry. I think we'll definitely miss the playoffs again this season.

Raptors Republic All-Star
All they got is a Chicken/Rooster walking DeResario. That goal scoring dance pisses me off, but hell, it at least gets me watching a bit of Toronto MLS.

Sigh TFC lost 3-1 to the Rapids. Two converted PK's (one questionable) did them in. Anybody else wonder why the hell DeGuzman broke up the defensive wall (he jumped out of place) to allow that goal on the free kick?!
It's still early in the season and the TFC have several new faces/new coach to gel and get their chemistry going (remind you of anybody?). But it seems that the TFC still need another legit striker and to shore up their defense if they are to make the playoffs.
