    Is waiting near the away team's bus the best way to meet opposing players? That's what I did against Atlanta, and I'm looking to do it again on Saturday. I want to meet Liam Ridgewell because we're from the same town in England

    Yup. Good luck!

    Portland on a high but that win vs the Gals was pretty 2 sided. IF the Gals hadn't had one called backed they would've kept shelling em.

    Thanks!

    That game was definitely more even than the final score. Valeri's goal was incredible

    So I'm part of the Lumber Jerks group coming into down this weekend for the match.
    I come asking about tailgating. The websites have been not helpful.
    1. Can we do it?
    2. Is there a preferred section for away fans?

    Thanks in advance.

    Public drinking is not allowed in Toronto. (though nothing stops people from using a coffee cup with their beverage) There isn't much of a tailgating thing in Toronto, or space to do tailgating around BMO Field. Usually people go to a pub for pre drinking. Many bars walking distance from BMO Field, but I'd avoid ones frequented by TFC supporters group. Even if you and other Timbers supporters go to a supporter's pub, it's unlikely you'll run into grief, but prepare for some good natured ribbing.

    IIRC section 104 is reserved for away supporters, but best ask TFC FO.

    Enjoy your time in Toronto

    Timbers Army Away version tends to sit together waaaay up in the official away stands up at the top of 204. Saw an East Coat Platoon scarf a couple of years ago.

    Have a lot of time for the Timber's Army - great support all over North America. But I do love that cartoon.

    Shoeless Joes is the Red Patch Boys home pub, a short walk from the pitch. You will be seriously ribbed but just tell them Yohan and Og sent you.

    Adding on to Yohan's post to you,
    There isn't much room around BMO field in the first place plus the Canadian National Exhibition (basically the State Fair for Toronto) is setting up for next weekend to begin, so there would be less room than normal.
    Best bet is always Shoeless Joes.

    Except the substantial tailgate area during Argo games, right across from BMO field. Maybe this could happen for a TFC playoff game. Can't happen during the EX tho.

    I would actually go to a TFC sponsored tailgate, maybe the Red Thread Brewing could approach, isn't Jim Brennan involved with Red Thread?

    Does Portland play a deep back line and try to steal a point or 3 off of counters? Toronto has proved it struggles to break down bunkering defenses. Could be another frustrating one to watch with 40+ crosses

    With the exception of Chicago, everybody is going to bunker against us for the rest of the season. It up to Vanney to figure out how to get the ball moving quicker and work things through the outside effectively. We have seen a lot of Jozy and Seba moving out wide to pick up the ball and combining with the WB's. Need more of that and some decent crosses in from wide areas. I also think teams are adjusting to Vasquez and he needs to change the repetoire up a bit.

    Portland has scored as many goals as TFC and a win could put them top of the West Table. are you sure they will bunker?

    We should win. We should win every home game. It is particularly important so that we can buttress our lead.

    Even if they park the bus, and I would not blame them for doing so, we have enough to win, as long as we stay disciplined ourselves. If they attack they play in our hands, we stay organized and counter. Either way we need to win, to keep the momentum going.

    Bringing the family down to the game for the first time. With the light rain scheduled during the match should we bring ponchos or will the roof provide enough coverage that unless it downpours we should be o.k.? We will be sitting in section 205. Also in the seating chart a part of section 205 is white, is this a supporters section? if so what part of 205 is supporters?

    Looking forward to the match. Very excited for the first time out!

    Away fans are up at the top of 204.

    You have a full roof and will not be rained on during the game.

    Can't wait for this match! My first visit to BMO since 2015. Here's hoping for a good match and ultimately a win for the reds!

    what do I have to do to get a Morrow on the left, Edwards on the right starting lineup?
    It works. Fuck Hasler.

    Give it time man. No way of telling what hassler is capable of yet. That said, an attack minded Edwards getting more minutes would be welcome in my books.
