Guess the Starting XI and Final Score (MLS Match #9 - RSL)

Another Friday means another Vancouver Whitecaps match. This time, it is visiting Real Salt Lake. Get your lineup and score predictions in before the lineups are announced at 6:30. Welcome to another season of our Vancouver Whitecaps contest “Guess the Starting XI and Final Score”. As is tradition, thanks to former regular Spencer for starting this several years ago. It has grown into a great contest and I am appreciative of him for the original idea. Like last season, we will break the contest up into the three ‘seasons’: first half, second half, and non-MLS. We will continue to...

Toronto FC CCL game to be shown at Maple Leaf Square alongside Leafs and Raptors

Toronto FC CCL game to be shown at Maple Leaf Square alongside Leafs and Raptors

It’s gonna be one hell of a party outside the ACC on Wednesday. Wednesday night is going to be one of the most momentous in recent Toronto sports history. The Toronto Maple Leafs play Game 7 against the Boston Bruins, the Raptors have Game 5 in their series against the Washington Wizards, and, of course, Toronto FC will finish off the CONCACAF Champions League final against C.D. Guadalajara. Because of it, MLSE announced today they’ll be hosting one giant fan party downtown at Maple Leaf Square. The Raptors are the only team playing at home, so we assumed they’d get priority for the...

Canadian Premier League website starts mysterious countdown

What could it be? Anybody checking out the Canadian Premier League’s official website (canpl.ca) today would’ve found themselves scratching their head. The site’s homepage seems to have turned into one giant countdown “To Kick Off,” over top of a black-and-white photo of a foggy soccer field. The Journey Has Begun, follow the story on https://t.co/Ri0IvJxJe2 #CanPL ⚽️— Roy Nasrala (@roynasrala) April 24, 2018 For those too lazy to count, the ticker seems to be counting down to 6 a.m. EST this Friday, April 27 (somebody please check my math because that seems kinda odd,...

Valkyratings: Damage limitation, thy name is Michelle Betos

A tired and shorthanded Reign team couldn’t do much against the best side in the league, but there were some bright spots. Seattle Reign FC had a short turnaround after their cold, rain-soaked game in New Jersey on Sunday, heading straight to North Carolina to face the league-leading Courage in their third match of the season on Wednesday. The weather was much better for this game, but injuries, absences for international duty and fatigue led to a dreary performance that could have ended much worse than the 1-0 scoreline might suggest. With a short bench and facing a dangerously speedy...

‘Like nothing I’ve ever seen’: Michael Bradley praises Toronto first responders

‘Like nothing I’ve ever seen’: Michael Bradley praises Toronto first responders

Greg Vanney and Bradley both made strong statements about yesterday’s horrific attack. The city of Toronto has been reeling ever since the sickening attack on pedestrians at Yonge and Finch, which left 10 people dead and 15 more injured. It’s at times like these when we turn to sport — it’s our escape; it brings us together when the days are darkest. Games can seem silly when the world is so troubling, but often they’re what we need. Last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs gave the city a boost it needed. Tomorrow night, Toronto FC are hoping to represent their city abroad, and give...

Postgame Pontifications: Three points all the same

The win wasn’t as convincing as preferred, but it will definitely do. SEATTLE — As Brian Schmetzer was only too happy to point out in Sunday’s postgame press conference, there is no such thing as a “must-win” game in April. Hyperbole aside, though, the home game against Minnesota United got pretty close. It wasn’t just that the Sounders came into the match winless, it was that they had already lost two very winnable home games. LAFC has proven themselves to be a better-than-normal expansion team, but their defense has also given up 13 goals. The Montreal Impact have given up 17...

Michelle Betos returns to where it all began

Michelle Betos returns to where it all began

Five years later & the goalkeeper finally gets her wins as a Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper. Good goalkeeping is a beautiful thing. In the NWSL there is often not just a decline between the starting goalkeeper and the backup, but a cliff so steep even mountain goats would say “no thanks”. But Seattle, with presumed number one Lydia Williams out, don’t just have a backup but someone who has won Goalkeeper of the Year for her work in the NWSL, they have Michelle Betos. Michelle Betos is not your typical backup goalkeeper. For the Portland Thorns in 2016, her last year in the league...

Hometown boys have led the way for Toronto FC during Champions League run

Hometown boys have led the way for Toronto FC during Champions League run

It has made the club’s journey extra special In many ways, Ashtone Morgan and Jonathan Osorio’s stories are the ones that Toronto FC was created to write. Hometown boys, who grew up watching the games in the stands and were inspired to pull on the red of both TFC and the national team. It hasn’t happened nearly enough. For every Osorio and Morgan, there have been numerous young Canadians who either didn’t have the talent or didn’t get the opportunity. Even the pair, the most successful “homegrown” talent, has had a rocky road to get here. But the latest chapter in both of...

It is uncertain if ex-Timbers forward Rodney Wallace would have been cheered if he finished a first-half header inside the six-yard box against his former teammates but the New York City FC winger received a warm, enthusiastic ovation when replaced in the 70th minute of Portland’s 3-0 win. “It was nice – it was a […] The post Rodney Wallace still admired in Portland appeared first on Pro Soccer USA.
