  1. Toronto FC conceded three goals inside the first 30 minutes against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium to lose their fourth straight 3-2 Saturday evening. It was a case of déjà vu for both teams as rain delayed the continuation of play in the 42nd minute when power went out and lightning struck. On August 24th 2011 TFC and FC Dallas faced off in a Concacaf Champions League match at BMO Field. TFC trailed 1-0 but had their half time deficit erased due to lightning. The game was replayed the following morning only to see TFC lose by the same score-line. However the damage had already been done in Sat
  2. The two big off season acquisitions of Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore connected to help Toronto FC rally to defeat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 at BC Place on Saturday. The match highlighted what both squads’ new designated players were capable of. Whitecaps DP Octavio Rivero made his presence felt in his debut when he nearly scored in the ninth minute. But the Uruguayan missed the tap in from less than six yards from the net. Rivero bounced back ten minutes later by making the most of the space left by Toronto’s high back line. Defender Pa Modou Kah sent a long ball to the left flank fo
  3. Last Monday Canadian Women’s National team head coach John Herdman announced the 24 player roster for the Cyprus Women’s Cup Tournament that begins on Wednesday. This tournament provides important exhibition preparation ahead of the Women’s World Cup in June. Like in past Cyprus Cups, the team will use this as an opportunity to develop cohesiveness among the group and unify their shared purpose. Herdman understands the importance of continuing the momentum the team has created this year after winning three matches en route to capturing Bao’an Cup in China. “We've been on a roll and hope to
  4. Soccer coaches from across the country will be in Toronto this week to attend Canada’s largest coaching education conference at the University of Toronto. The National Soccer Coaching Conference (NSCC) kicks off its fourth annual weekend for coaches to congregate, network and benefit from a plethora of speakers and clinicians from January 30th through February 1st. CSN had the opportunity to speak with Manager of Soccer operations at UofT, Anthony Capotosto, about the goals and benefits of this event. As Toronto FC Junior Academy and UofT Varsity Blues men's head coach, Capotosto is familia
  5. The Undermanned Houston Dynamo sparked their playoff hopes, while dimming those of Toronto when they slipped past TFC 1-0 at BMO Field Wednesday Night. It was a well-placed long ball from Kafi Sarkodie in the 35th that sprung Giles Barnes on the right flank. Barnes controlled the ball past Nick Hagglund and took a right footed shot from a difficult an angle. The game began with an onslaught of offensive pressure from both side. TFC nearly tallied in the 30th minute when Jermain Defoe was sent from a Michael Bradley feed. Defoe cut in but sent the shot sailing wide. Wednesday night marked his
  6. Robbie Keane scored two goals only minutes apart and Landon Donovan captured the MLS all-time assists record to help the LA Galaxy make quick work of Toronto FC 3-0 at the Stub Hub Center in Carson California Saturday Night. It seems only fitting that, on what would be TFC's final dance with Donovan (unless by some twist of fate these two sides meet in the MLS Cup Final), that the poster boy for American soccer would set another MLS record before his retirement. It was on Robbie Keane's second tally of the night in the 25th that Donovan altered the record books. His 136th assist came when he
