Impact trade Raheem Edwards to Chicago

Impact trade Raheem Edwards to Chicago

The Canadian was a fan favourite with Toronto FC. The Montreal Impact announced today that they’ve traded left winger Raheem Edwards to the Chicago Fire in exchange for $400,000 in Targeted Allocation Money. Edwards broke into the league last season with Toronto FC, making 25 total appearances for the Reds in 2017. He’s also got four caps with the Canadian men’s national team, and he’s considered an up-and-coming member of John Herdman’s squad. Edwards has scored twice in 14 games this season, but he seems not to have clicked quite well enough with Montreal. The Impact acquired...

Toronto FC Prediction League: Round 28 (@ Ottawa)

Bring on the Voyageurs Cup Toronto FC kick off their 2018 Canadian Championship campaign tonight, as they look to defend the Voyageurs Cup and secure their return to the CONCACAF Champions League. They’ll take on the USL’s Ottawa Fury at TD Place Stadium in the nation’s capital, in the first leg of this tie. Last time out, the Reds lost 2-1 to Orlando City. As often seems to be the case recently, it was another tough round for the prediction league. Only Mike Whaley predicted a TFC loss, and that was supposed to be a reverse jinx. Let’s get the points flowing again with a bonus...

Voyageurs Cup a chance for Jay Chapman to get some deserved minutes

This has been the best season of the Canadian’s career. Saturday was the last straw for a lot of Toronto FC supporters. The club were facing a six point swing opportunity against an Orlando City side who had lost nine straight going into the match. Perhaps more concerning than the 2-1 loss, however, was the flat performance the team delivered in yet another of many chances they have been given to save their season. From top to bottom TFC continue to look out of ideas. In a listless second half performance where Toronto halfheartedly tried to get back into the game, one player stood...

ORLANDO, Fla. — For the first time in months, Orlando City striker Dom Dwyer had a reason to do a backflip. By the time Orlando City’s Saturday night match against Toronto FC was over, the entire club had reason to celebrate. At long last, their two-month nightmare was finally over.

Orlando City vs. Toronto FC: Preview & game thread

One of TFC’s favourite opponents. Toronto FC continue their long road trip tonight against Orlando City, as they try to improve on the loss and draw they’ve already recorded since their last home game. Fortunately, if there’s a team for TFC to break a slump against, it’s definitely Orlando. Since the Lions came into the league, they’ve always been a pretty successful fixture for TFC. The Reds are 7-1-1 all-time against Orlando, including a 2-1 home win from earlier this season (their last victory at BMO Field). That last contest was a memorable one, as Ryan Teller scored the late...

Predicting Toronto FC’s lineup against Orlando City

Toronto FC head to Florida in desperate need of some momentum On Saturday night, Toronto FC will be at Orlando City Stadium to face off against Orlando City SC. Orlando currently sit in 9th position in the Eastern Conference, with 19 points through 18 games, one place above Toronto FC, but have been absolutely abysmal recently, losing nine consecutive matches, including a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Los Angeles FC last time out. Toronto, fresh off a 2-2 draw with Sporting Kansas City, sit in 10th place with 16 points, and will hoping to pick up some road points as they try to climb out of...

Is this the one? Toronto FC step into Florida this evening to take on Orlando City, a matchup that’s been kind to them historically. After drawing at Sporting Kansas City and losing at Minnesota United, the Reds will hope to pick up some points on this road trip. The prediction league actually went pretty well for you guys last weekend; a couple people actually got the 2-2 result spot on. Perhaps that’s more a sign of dropping optimism than anything else. Anyway, here’s how things stack up this week. Footy Wolverine Go Blue remains way out in front, with the rest of the top five...

Ager Aketxe just wasn’t a good fit with Toronto FC

He has talent, but he just didn’t pan out in Toronto They don’t all work out as planned. Toronto FC supporters know that as well as anyone, with the volume of new faces that have come through the door over the years. They have had different pedigrees, potential and pay grades. Only a select few have paid off. Recently, however, that hit rate has been far higher than normal. Everything Toronto FC GM Tim Bezbatchenko had done in the two seasons prior to this one seemed to turn to gold. Be it Victor Vazquez, Chris Mavinga, Nico Hasler, or even bringing Raheem Edwards up from Toronto FC...

Sporting KC 2-2 Toronto FC: The good, the bad & the ugly

On a pitch like that, it was a ‘gritty’ performance. The Good So far, Toronto FC is undefeated during the second half of the season... a new formation. The flat 4-4-2 to start the game was a breath of fresh air... a greater emphasis on defence and playing patient football, rather than chasing an elusive, quick goal... the series of eight consecutive passes that led to Jonathan Osorio’s tally... Greg Vanney switching to a 4-3-3 in the second half to inspire the lads offensively, while still protecting the back. Hopefully, the formation wizard has fixed his magic wand for good... TFC...
