    Game starts at 7:38pm

    Notes


    A) FIRST game where proof of double vaccination + ID is required.


    If you are going & have not already downloaded your second receipt, got to this website
    https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/

    Not sure about Iphones but people with Androids are by & large downloading the pdf to their phones & saving on their google drive in order to then save it as an icon link on home page.

    B) CSA rules apply so likely Canadian content but darned if I can see the rules for the competition on the CSA website anywhere. Going to assume the same "3 players starting must be Canadian" rules but we will see.


    C) Took a look at pricing for this. Seems to be priced like the lower tier home games. If you want a single ticket, you will be paying $44 right now for the corners. No single tickets left via SSH. If you want groups of 2, groups of two pay $21 each on the corners if SSH & $33 if not. There are groups of 2 available in the South for $33 each.
    So the cheapest ticket for a SSH wanting to go by themselves is $42 for a pair in the corners.
    For those wanting the experience, there are Field level seats available for the approximate price of a hotel stay ($177 each)



    ************************

    If we play like we have the last week, we should win but the potential for there to be egos that think we can walk this might be an issue.

    I expect Perez is under strict orders to prioritize this tournament as it is our chance at winning anything this year. Also, this is on OneSoccer and not TSN which kind of sucks

    Having been to a few Blue Jays games now where proof of vaccination was required it went pretty smoothly. They had people down the lines going in checking for it.

    The pricing for this game should have been lower, especially when you have to buy at least two tickets in most cases. I have a feeling BMO will be pretty empty, just looking at Ticketmaster. Just do not see a last minute run on tickets.

    The weather will be factored into all this. Wednesday, match day, there could be as much as 35mm of rain in the GTA!

    OG I miss the flight tracker. Is there a TTC tracker or something suitable for this match that your Dog can accept?

    It’s funny how things change. A week ago I was genuinely worried about this game and the impact on the club, now I’m expecting the boys to run roughshod over York. Best week all year!

    Tfc has this way of crushing our hopes.

    I wouldn't be surprised if TFC plays too arrogantly and gets beaten by a motivated York.

    If Pacific can beat Vancouver we can also be had. That said, if we take this seriously, we will win.

    Watching CPL, there’s a lot of individual skill and even decent interplay, but there’s zero intensity compared to MLS and no offensive consistency. Lots of shambolic goalkeeping and defending , too.

    If we play with the same intensity as our last two, we should score three or four. If we try to revert to our old low tempo possession, we’ll risk being embarrassed.

    Anyone else wish this were an away game (plastic pitch and oval track notwithstanding).
    I’d be more motivated to attend (and I live downtown).

    York U would be something I would consider attending as its way closer to my work & home.

    Molinaro confirming that Poz is out for this one.


    3 Canadian rule has me thinking Ozo, Laryea & probably Singh. I would hope it would be Peruzza out there in attack but I don't think Perez trusts him enough.

    I believe MB is suspended for the next MLS game, so I’d expect him to start as well.

    I feel like Altidore may end up playing more games than Poz this season...

    Will we see anyone called up from TFC II to fill out the roster as we have seen in the past in the Canadian Championship especially when playing a lower division team. Malik Johnson, Brian James, Mitch Taintor come to mind.

    I mean.... that list is like the Star Trek away team red shirt when it comes to sticking with TFC, so I'm not sure it's something they'd want.

    "I've been called up to TFC for the big Voyageurs Cup game, honey... start packing!"

    Anyone heading out to the match tonight, bring your umbrellas and raincoats, cuz it's gonna be a wet one with rain pouring hard at kickoff and continuing throughout the match!

    This game is going to end up like the 2011 Champions League match vs Dallas that had to be cancelled during the first half and replayed the next day

    They shouldn’t even bother. Field is going to get torn to shreds.

    You will not need one, just find a spot under the roof, that will be easy to find tonight.
