    Cblake got a reaction from lowlander in The Voyageurs in Nashville this past weekend   
    A member of the Vs Kyle who lives in Nashville and organized the pre-game bar took these pics of the pregame gathering, march and in the stadium. while it was not the biggest group of Canadian supporters to attend an away game their voices were heard. Head Coach John Herman even told me so earlier this afternoon down at BMO, they really appreciated those who made the trek from close and far.

    This match is 3 points, simple as that, no excuses. ES is the worst team to make the final round, and being at home Canada needs to take it to them right out of the gate, not play down to their level. 5 out of 9 points from this first break is something Canada can build on.

    Canada certainly have figured out how to CONCACAF a game, they did it Sunday as they should have. Getting out of Nashville with a point was not the best result it certainly certainly better than none.

    I really view anyone posting tickets at that price as a fishing exercise, seeing what the market may bear.

    Random fans of the away team at TFC games have simply been moved in the past who ended up with tickets in the south end. I am sure security has a plan in place to deal with such a situation even if the tempers are not up. Good to nip it in the but beforehand.

    I have an MBA and I think the pricing on these tickets were found out to be right and in fact, could be slightly higher.  What I’m truly offended by is that if you are a Voyageur and sell tickets to an away fan, you are taking advantage of the group and being a “Judas”. 
    And worse still, if an away fan buys a ticket not knowing better, they better not be showing off their colours cause it could be a very expensive, unpleasant experience.

    I agree these TFC matches are getting harder and harder to watch and enjoy. I still can not believe we have at least 9 home games left this season.

    I usually go to every home game but I may only go to Canadian Championship games now and maybe try to get to a TFC 2 game if they keep putting lineups like they had last week out.

    We seem to be embracing CONCACAF. It might be controversial to some on this board (I haven't seen anyone mention it, but I wasn't on the game thread) but I thought it was hilarious when Borjan had a seemingly planned injury out of nothing. Instantly the entire team was at the sideline talking to Herdman and getting hydrated.

    Just because people are listing tickets for those prices doesn't mean people are buying them at those prices😃....I have a sneaking suspicion that those numbers will come down a "smidge" before game time.  I am thrilled with the new found interest in the National Team (I am an "oldie" and remember being at Varsity Stadium in 1993, when they lost to Mexico with a chance to make the 94 World Cup) -- but as with most things Toronto, this has taken on a life of its own, and is the hot ticket for this week/month.  Will it be sustained for playing Panama in October (probably) if the team starts to underachieve, and will it be sustainable into next year and beyond if they fail to qualify - unfortunately the market tends to be fickle with sports in this town (except for the Leafs who are relatively bullet-proof) depending on which team is playing well and has captured the excitement of those outside of the usual attendees.  It happened with the Jays in 2015 -2016 (after 20 or so years in the wilderness since 1994) and by 2018-2019 when it was no longer "cool", it was back to being dead again at the dome -- now the Jays are on the upswing and people are talking baseball again ---  Toronto FC isn't a hot ticket anymore either based on present results - in 2016-2017 it was the hottest ticket in town, and now, not so much.
    I hope this group reaches their potential and qualifies for the WC as it's been a long time coming for a lot of long time suffering fans of local soccer -- they are a very talented group and now the results need to match their potential --- but the third game of the WCQ round being a $300-$400 ticket?!.....it's not reality (maybe if it was the last game or two of the Octo and a win clinched a spot in the WC then maybe).....I am sure you will be able to find a ticket a lot cheaper than that for tomorrow once the game rolls around.

    True dat...As a TFC SSH my bro and I have essentially decided to transfer it to next season.  We wanted to go to the first TFC match for the fans, but couldn't get it.  It was proving harder than I realize to get the tickets.  As TFC continues their performance, there is less incentive for us to go.  We would end up deciding to focus on going to Canada's games which the energy level is unbelievable and enjoyable.  As for the "Battle of York" local derby, yeah we are interested but the longer they delay selling the tickets the harder it is for us to plan for (we both got families with young kids).

    I would not be surprised if something along those lines happened. Capacity is at 15K right now and to be honest having attended a number of games they have not even been reaching that. It is not all that surprising considering how the Reds season has been going and the fact that season ticket holders can pick and choose which games they want to attend.

    Good news? I know a Bayern account said he had an MRI but not sure how accurate that is.
    watching him walk to the tunnel last night he was moving slow but didn’t have a noticeable limp or anything.

    I am really looking forward to seeing what Tajon in action out of the gate. He is a really exciting young player. I do hope John has learned from these first few games on how to manage these 3 game windows? They certainly present some challenges that you did not face in previous cycles.
