    Kaye named to all star game. Great news for a player that’s worked hard to succeed in this league.

    Well if you want to see a TFC team win for a change

    The U-15's just won the USDA final for their age group, coming back from 2-0 down to beat LAFC 3-2.

    Including a last minute of stoppage time goal line clearance & a pk rekick for encroachment.

    You’d think, especially with not chartering flights it seems a bit odd they wouldn’t. It doesn’t cost a lot of money or anything.

    Though maybe the Larin/Adi types can’t get it?

    Yeah I read that, it's nuts. John had already mentioned earlier this season that his coverage of TFC was reduced. Hardly anybody asking the difficult or interesting questions anymore.

    That’s crappy. John is a great guy and one of the originals on the TFC beat.

    Hope he finds a new home shortly.

    The writing was kind of on the wall when DAZN took the EPL - not sure Rogers/Sporstnet has any soccer rights now.

    Sportsnet had a Q1 loss of 84 million. That's why John and Bob McCown were let go with more to come. Word on the street is Don Cherry is next....

    But they had the whole Raps playoff run. How could they not cash-in over that? (Though that was Q2).

    Half of that went to TSN. They had split rights.

    Worst case, when can we expect Jozy, Bradley, OG and Oso back?

    Also, July 9 is the opening day for the summer transfer window, so OG can't join until then anyway.

    All those end game collapses must be from around 2011-13.

    Last night he misplaced a few passes but was very good, showed a lot of skill and technique too. He looks really awkward too, which makes it better. Also not afraid to get his body into the play and fight for the ball.

    I want Michael Bradley to do one more thing while he's at TFC. Teach Fraser everything about how to anticipate.

    If Fraser gets a little bit of more mean in him and learns how to anticipate, he'll be a good DM. You can be a good DM if you know how to anticipate the opposition, even if you don't have the physical attributes.

    This is pretty much the only reason Delgado starts.

    Well LAFC ain't doing the treble - out of the cup last night after a classic cup smash & grab - and LAFC played their starters.

    Hope for the playoffs.

    ********

    And a reminder that although their cup has more teams, ours still has more passion

    And this story....this is now just a legend.

    Orlando fans storm a closed section to watch their team win a PK fight abetted by a running CEO telling his minimum wage security contracted yellow shirts to "Let Them In"
