    I have a feeling this one was thrown together and we're hearing about it as soon as they had it finalized. I think the issue is why did it take so long to throw together? As we are well aware, previous years there were multiple options and this year seems no different.

    But hey, we're just the folks who can't wait to watch or follow them. I wish em luck and hope that one of these teams can throw these games on youtube.

    I asked when the initial preseason schedule came out and steams for LA trip are unlikely and maybe they get them for orlando.

    March 6th could very well be the 1st time we have a chance of watching this team play.

I am grateful to the City of Clearwater, the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Sports Commission and all involved in making this invitational a reality. I look forward to it becoming an annual soccer tradition.”

    Dude - they are in LA. There are no TFC media their beyond Devang Desai who's in house.

    They did media interviews on Monday here before they went down. 6 of them - the one DP, the 3 new guys, Vanney & Bez. Do you know how many teams do that much talk in this league? Maybe 3 or 4, depending upon management.

    They send out at least a pic for EVERY SINGLE SESSION.

    They did an interview with Manella & Chapman.


    What are you expecting?

    Most of those other clubs' stories aren't from the club, but from beat writers. It's incredibly hard right now to get print/online space in Canada for soccer. It likely has little to do with the club. The business is in a different stage here and there are long-standing biases about what gets eyes on the page.

    I'd say having more aggressive communications people with better ideas would help, and it would... except that corporate culture largely defeats initiative these days. The process of having to have everything approved by six bosses who don't know what the fuck they're talking about tends to make it a net neutral job when it comes to reputation.

    I agree on the 5 minute report thing. Heck, do a daily periscope.

    They said probably not the ones in LA. But they might have something for the Tampa games.

    http://www.torontofc.ca/post/2016/01...e-season-match

    First pre-season game is tonight at 7pm ET vs. University of California Irvine. No stream. Mostly a look at our depth guys, it says projected starting XI is Roberts; Lovitz, Zavaleta, Williams, Morgan; Mannella, Chapman; Endoh, Osorio, Delgado; Hamilton (looks like a 4-2-3-1).

    Seems like that could have gone better than it did. 2nd Endoh goal called back for some reason but TFC got penalty finished by Hamilton. Unfortunately also gave up a penalty and late goal. 2-2
