Rumour: Interest from Italy and France for Jozy Altidore

Rumour: Interest from Italy and France for Jozy Altidore

Apparently the big man has turned some heads overseas. Just after Jozy Altidore netted a hat trick in the 2018 Canadian Championship final, a report came out from ESPN FC that tells us that Jozy Altidore is rumoured to be garnering interest from a few European clubs. One of the clubs is reported to be in Italy’s Serie A, while the other one is from France’s Ligue 1. To me, this would be a shock move if it did actually become true because Jozy Altidore is currently enjoying a very successful stint with Toronto FC. He’s won the 2017 MLS Cup, became a finalist for the 2016 MLS Cup, won...

Footy Talks: What does winning the Voyageurs Cup mean for Toronto FC’s season?

Plus debriefing the loss against NYCFC and some Manchester United talk Finally, something tangible to celebrate at BMO Field. After a bizarre season, Toronto FC lifted the Voyageurs last night, for the seventh time, and are now back in the Concacaf Champions League for next season. With that in their pocket, we now wait and see if it will give them the boost they need to make the playoffs. Last night was vintage Toronto FC, three goals from Jozy Altidore and five in total as they pummelled the Vancouver Whitecaps. But if they can’t get a win on Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes,...

TORONTO — Toronto FC will get another crack at continental glory. The Reds rode a Jozy Altidore hat-trick to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps in the second leg of the Canadian Championship final Wednesday night, winning 7-4 on aggregate.

Toronto FC win third straight Canadian Championship

WE’RE COMING FOR YOU CONCACAF Toronto FC have retained the Voyageurs Cup, becoming Canadian Champions yet again on Wednesday night by defeating the Vancouver Whitecaps 5-2 at BMO Field for a 7-4 victory on aggregate. It was an absolutely dominant performance from the Reds once they got going, but the night truly belonged to Jozy Altidore. The clutch big man more than made up for his sending off on the weekend by scoring a hat trick, ravaging the Whitecaps defence all night. Altidore scored all his goals in close, putting his first one past Stefan Marinovic from a low angle after Marky...

Jozy Altidore sees red for kicking out as Toronto FC loses 3-2 to New York City FC

TORONTO — A defining theme of Toronto FC’s 2017 season was control. You always sensed the Reds just about clung on to it — even through the moments, in the playoffs and the Canadian Championship, when they sailed closest to the wind. At its best — including in the MLS Cup final — Toronto was […] The post Jozy Altidore sees red for kicking out as Toronto FC loses 3-2 to New York City FC appeared first on Pro Soccer USA.

FT: Toronto FC 2-3 NYCFC — Altidore red headlines frustrating day for TFC

Not a lot went right today. Well, that’s that. It looked for a moment that Toronto FC were going to hang on for a point against some tough competition, but Ismael Tajouri-Shradi had other ideas. The tone was set early as Jozy Altidore saw a red card in the 11th minute for a kick on Alexander Callens. TFC stirred up hope a couple times, though, with Sebastian Giovinco equalizing sublimely not long after, and then Victor Vazquez doing the same thing in the second half. It was not to be, though, as Tajouri-Shradi’s second of the match killed the Reds in the 88th minute. It’s not...

Lucas Janson brings more versatility to the Toronto FC attack

The club could use an injection of offence down the stretch Help is on the way for Toronto FC as they attempt to claw their way back into a playoff position. It probably didn’t come in the form most were expecting. During what has mostly been an ugly summer for Toronto FC there have been fans clamoring for everything from a new centre-back, to a defensive midfielder, to a striker in the Jozy Altidore mold. New arrival Lucas Janson fits none of those descriptions. The 23-year-old Argentine (he turns 24 next week) arrived from Superliga Argentina side Tigre on a loan deal worth $300,000...

Vancouver Whitecaps 2-2 Toronto FC: The good, the bad & the ugly

A crusty pitch and an even drier performance. The Good At least we didn’t lose... Oso’s response to Vancouver’s penalty... the Whitecaps’ celebratory dance after Kei Kamara’s goal... Clint Irwin’s save on Alphonso Davies in the second half... Nick Hagglund had a strong game... at least we didn’t lose... Michael Bradley’s ball to Altidore in the first half (Jozy’s only contribution during the first 45)... give Tosaint Ricketts credit for pressuring Doneil Henry... Oso doing double-duty: scoring the lone TFC goal and helping Ashtone Morgan deal with Davies down the left...

Post Match: Whitecaps Vs TFC

It was a classically tragic result for the Vancouver Whitecaps they drew 2-2 against Toronto F.C in the first leg of the Voyageurs Cup. Kei Kamara had an early chance from a Marcel De Jong cross but the target man fired it over the bar. For the most part though the match started slowly as the two teams felt each other out. This was just as well as bloggers currently in the U.S were still scrambling to find a stream that would work. In the 15th minute Stefan Marinovic made a save from a sharp angle on Jozy Altidore. Shortly after the Whitecaps answered with a dangerous attack of their own....

Greg Vanney’s half-time switch inspires Toronto FC’s win over Chicago Fire

TORONTO — Sebastian Giovinco was closer to getting a red card than he was to scoring in the first half of Toronto FC’s match against the Chicago Fire on Saturday.

Toronto FC trounce Fire 3-0

A second consecutive loss to Toronto FC, and fifth in a row in league play places the Fire on the verge of having their postseason hopes washed away. The 3-0 defeat in Canada drops the Fire to 6-12-5 on the season and five points out of sixth place with other competitors holding as many as two games in hand. The Fire played another competitive first 45 minutes against the defending MLS Cup champions but fell apart in the second half with Toronto gobbling up possession and chances. Jozy Altidore scored in the 52nd minute, Jonathan Osorio in the 72nd, and Sebastian Giovinco in the 89th and the...

FT: Toronto FC 3-0 Chicago Fire — Second half explosion lifts TFC

TFC’s attack is just too hot for the Fire to handle. Four in a row baby! The Reds pick up three beautiful MLS points on the back of an excellent second-half performance against the Chicago Fire. Toronto FC found goals from Jozy Altidore, Jonathan Osorio, and Sebastian Giovinco, although all three required plenty of solid team attacking play to happen. The difference in TFC’s game when Altidore and Victor Vazquez are in the lineup is night and day; the Reds were much more confident and dangerous in attack. Sebastian Giovinco seemed to be all over the field as well, launching a number...
