‘I enjoyed it’: Jermain Defoe praises MLS, wouldn’t rule out return

‘I enjoyed it’: Jermain Defoe praises MLS, wouldn’t rule out return

We’re not sure why anyone asked him, but Defoe had good things to say about Toronto. Former Toronto FC designated player Jermain Defoe was asked about his time in MLS recently, and it seems he has a much more positive outlook than perhaps we thought. The Bournemouth striker played just one season with the Reds, 2014, before skipping town (he was sent to Sunderland in exchange for Jozy Altidore). In an interview with ESPN FC, he spoke highly of North America’s top flight, as well as the city of Toronto, refusing to rule out an eventual return to Major League Soccer. “When I was...

‘It’s not in my hands’: Jozy Altidore speaks cryptically about his Toronto FC future

‘It’s not in my hands’: Jozy Altidore speaks cryptically about his Toronto FC future

Altidore’s comments after the loss to Vancouver had an unexpected tone. After Toronto FC’s spirit-crushing 2-1 loss at home to the Vancouver Whitecaps, striker Jozy Altidore spoke to the media with the same air of disappointment that surrounded the rest of his teammates. However, one thing he said did strike an unexpected chord that raised some questions about his future at the club. “It all depends how we come back next year, if we’re all around,” he said, discussing how TFC can bounce back from a tough year before changing his tack. “And if not, then it’s been an absolute...

FT: Toronto FC 1-2 Whitecaps — Playoffs gone as Reds falter again

FT: Toronto FC 1-2 Whitecaps — Playoffs gone as Reds falter again

Hello darkness... Well, rip this season into pieces. Toronto FC have been officially eliminated from playoff contention after losing 2-1 to the Vancouver Whitecaps at BMO Field on Saturday. Despite a faint glimmer of hope when Jozy Altidore scored a second-half penalty to level the score, the Reds’ defence ultimately let them down again as they allowed Kei Kamara to put Vancouver back in front shortly after. With the Montreal Impact’s 3-0 win over the Columbus Crew this afternoon, TFC are now 10 points out of a playoff spot with just three games (and a possible nine points) left on the...

Predicting Toronto FC’s lineup against the Vancouver Whitecaps

Predicting Toronto FC’s lineup against the Vancouver Whitecaps

It’s not over until it’s over. On Saturday, Toronto FC host Alphonso Davies and the Vancouver Whitecaps at BMO Field for the final time this season. In what will be Davies’ last game in Toronto for the Whitecaps before his big move to Bayern Munich, this match has plenty of promise to be an attacking affair, as it features a plethora of talented offensive threats on either side. Greg Vanney’s side managed to keep their playoff hopes alive with their 4-1 victory last time out, but they still face an uphill battle. The loss of Jozy Altidore is a big one for TFC, but Lucas Janson...

Rate the Reds: Toronto FC 4-1 New England Revolution

Rate the Reds: Toronto FC 4-1 New England Revolution

Better late than never? This weekend’s edition of Rate the Reds may be a little belated, but perhaps some time to think isn’t the worst thing in the world. Toronto FC trounced the New England Revolution 4-1 last night, bringing back a flood of memories of a football club that plays an attractive, free-flowing game. TFC have salvaged the tiniest speck of hope in the playoff race, with the mathematical nail not quite yet lodged in their coffin. Perhaps the start of the match was a little shaky, but things definitely turned out alright, despite Jozy Altidore’s match-ending injury...

New York Red Bulls vs. Toronto FC: Game thread & preview

New York Red Bulls vs. Toronto FC: Game thread & preview

Time to start running the table. Fresh off their Campeones Cup disappointment, Toronto FC have traveled to New Jersey for yet another MLS clash with the New York Red Bulls. With six games left to play, the Reds will pretty much have to win out at this point to give themselves any hope of grabbing a playoff spot. The Red Bulls have conceded three goals in each of their past two matches (a 3-3 draw with D.C. United and a 3-0 loss to the Montreal Impact). Assuming Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore are fit to play after exiting Wednesday’s game early, this could be an opportunity for...
