Chicago Fire Limping into Red Bull Arena

Chicago Fire Limping into Red Bull Arena

the Second to Last place Chicago Fire takes on the Red Bulls The New York Red Bulls are trying to continue their winning ways in their season after a solid win last week at home against the Montreal Impact, but now they have a bit of a tougher task as the Chicago Fire are coming over and will try to steal points of any kind. Last season the Chicago Fire came out guns a blazing and that was before they brought over the former German International Bastian Schweinstiger. Taking in players like Juninho, Dax McCarty and striker Nemanja Nikolic, this club came out of the gates ripped, roaring and...

Hear from Laurent Guyot and Aidan Daniels after Toronto FC II vs. NCFC

Postgame comments from the Young Reds’ coach and captain after their 0-0 draw. Here’s what Toronto FC II head coach Laurent Guyot and match captain Aidan Daniels had to say to the media after their side’s 0-0 draw with North Carolina FC on Wednesday night at BMO Field. Laurent Guyot: On how it felt to play their first home game: LG: Good! We got our first point and a clean sheet as well. We had given up eight goals in three games. The last 10 minutes were tough for us but we got some good chances as well. When you start off the season poorly it’s really tough to recover but this...

Pregame: Impact Aim to Overcome Poor Form in Old Boys' Return

Taider is back in the lineup as Montreal take on their first opponents at Saputo Stadium. The glamour of LA rolls into town, Saturday, with three Impact old boys in their party. It will be a home-coming of sorts for assistant coach Marco Dos Santos, while former fan favourite, Laurent Ciman and Callum Mallace are expected with the visitors, to face an Impact side aiming to avoid a sixth straight loss at their Stade Saputo home! Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports A first appearance in Montreal for Laurent Ciman, seen here in action last week in Vancouver, since...

Toronto FC II play to scoreless draw with North Carolina FC

Toronto FC II play to scoreless draw with North Carolina FC

Better than another loss, though. I suppose no one could expect a goal-a-thon. The visitors North Carolina FC had only scored four goals in four games and won their first game on Saturday so they may have been tired for this game. Toronto FC II had only scored once up until tonight and their marker was in their season opener against New York Red Bulls II. Still, the best takeaway is that TFC II shut out the opponents for the first time this season after having conceded eight goals in three games including four against Pittsburgh. The turnaround from that game is what TFC II head coach...

Your Pick: Starting XI Against LAFC

The long awaited first game at Saputo Stadium! The Montreal Impact are back home! After a rocky end to their road game stretch the Impact are back at Saputo Stadium for their first ever face off against the 2018 expansion team LAFC. Laurent Ciman ex-Montreal Impact player and new LAFC captain is making his return to la belle province. Impact will also be without the services of Rod Fanni who has been a strong piece of the defensive line. This loss may force Garde to deploy 4 back instead of 5.

Footy Talks Podcast: What went wrong for Toronto FC in Leg 1?

Plus Manchester City, the UEFA Champions League, and more from around the soccer world Wait, what happened to being favourites? Toronto FC allowed an early goal and never quite looked comfortable in a 2-1 loss to Chivas Guadalajara at BMO Field in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final on Tuesday. It is a loss that now sees Toronto FC needing their first ever win in Mexico in order to become the first MLS side to lift the trophy in the tournament’s current iteration.

Fire v Red Bulls match preview

What Are They All About? New York Red Bull Back to reality. This past weekend the Chicago Fire lost to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Los Angeles Galaxy in front of a sold-out Toyota Park. Although the 1-0 score line may reflect some sort of parity on the surface, the Fire never really looked like they were going to get a result and their performance was as dismal as the weather. Similarly, the Fire were dealt another blow as the crowd put to bed any questions about Toyota Park’s viability as a soccer hub. Cars lined the sleet covered parking lot hours before kickoff and the iterations of...

Tactical analysis: Toronto FC 1-2 Chivas Guadalajara

Tactical analysis: Toronto FC 1-2 Chivas Guadalajara

Defensive mistakes cost TFC the first leg of the CCL on home soil. After dumping out two high-profile Liga MX teams with an authentic history in this competition in Tigres and Club América, Toronto FC entered the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final against Chivas Guadalajara as favourites. Yet, it could that which hurt TFC most because in the early stages of the game, the home side found itself trailing and completely outworked by its opponents before Jonathan Osorio restored parity with his team-leading fourth goal of the competition. Nonetheless, Chivas still managed to...

Who Will Step up in Rod Fanni’s absence

Who Will Step up in Rod Fanni’s absence

It’s been announced that former Marseille defender, Rod Fanni has a minor muscular injury and may be sidelined. This unfortunate news could be a considerable blow to Remi Garde’s side if the injury lasts longer than expected. Rod Fanni has been a calming presence on the defensive line since signing a contract that runs through June 30th, 2018, with an option for the remainder of the season. Subtracting the acquisition of Fanni, the Impact’s defensive corps was already in a shallow state with newcomer Zakaria Diallo sidelined for the foreseeable future as well as the departure of...

VIDEO: The Return of the General

Love him or hate him, Laurent Ciman is back in Montreal this weekend but this time, in enemy colors. Whether you're happy with his departure, upset about it, or indifferent Laurent Ciman was a dominant defender for the Montreal Impact. Arriving in LA, a new club and a new coach, Ciman was on a mission to prove the doubters wrong. So far this season LAFC has been very impressive in one game and struggling in the next (3 wins and 2 losses). The 2015 defender of the year, who's the leader of LAFC, will surely be leading by example on Saturday. Playing against one's former club always carries...
