TFC left to rue mistakes that led to CCL final hole

Soccer By Ives at related • 1 view

In some ways, Tuesday night went as Toronto FC expected it would. The reigning MLS Cup champions expected a cagey, physical Concacaf Champions League first leg, one featuring a lot of man-to-man coverage and few clear-cut chances.

What they didn't expect, though, was the hole they now find themselves in following a 2-1 defeat at BMO Field.

Greg Vanney's tactical shift pays off for 'bold' TFC in MLS Cup win

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

Greg Vanney took a risk on Saturday. It was a calculated risk, sure, but it was a risk nonetheless. After spending the better part of two seasons riding a five-at-the-back set to MLS dominance, Vanney unleashed a major tactical wrinkle with an MLS Cup on the line.

Facing off with a tough Seattle Sounders team, Vanney surprised many when his lineup was announced as a 4-4-2 diamond.

Toronto FC set out with one goal in the 2017 season: win the MLS Cup the team was so close to capturing in 2016. With Saturday's 2-0 win over the Seattle Sounders, they did just that, and capped off one of the greatest seasons MLS has ever seen.

"Lifting this trophy has been an obsession for the last 364 days," said captain Michael Bradley.

TORONTO When Chad Marshall played in his first MLS Cup, he was one of three goal-scorers for the Columbus Crew along with Alejandro Moreno and Frankie Hejduk.

In both instances, the Marshall and Moor played against teams from their own conferences.

Today the rumors were made official. Drew Moor is no longer a Rapid. The last remaining player from the 2010 MLs Cup team has signed with Toronto FC. Two weeks ago the Rapids declined his option and under the new CBA that made Moor a free agent (28 years old or older with 8 years in MLS). He had offers from multiple clubs but last week signs started pointing heavily towards him heading north of the border to Toronto and the Reds finalized the deal today.

TFC announced on Wednesday that the club has signed the former Rapids captain. Moor's signing makes the 31-year-old the second player to take advantage of the league's new form of free agency following the signing of Justin Mapp by Sporting Kansas City.

The Rapids beat the Houston Dynamo 2-0 on Saturday night in Commerce City. The team closed the season on a two-game winning streak, the same way the Rapids opened the campaign.

In the four games that bookend the 34-game season, the Rapids scored eight goals, allowed only one and earned four wins.

He's got tremendous speed, quickness and he's creating some really, really dangerous situations. The second thing is I think it was a good matchup for him. The third thing is he really wants to do well for Oscar [Pareja].

But before being shipped to the Rapids, he had nearly four good seasons with Dallas. One of his teammates during that span was Bobby Rhine, the former FCD player turned broadcaster and front office employee who left us way too early last September.

Stop me if this sounds familiar.

The Rapids lost 2-1.

This time Colorado fell behind in the opening moments, immediately tied the match, and then faded out on Saturday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.

This time the Seattle Sounders were the beneficiaries of this latest loss, but the victors hardly mattered as the Rapids completed an 0-for-July streak that leaves the team questioning its ability.

It is GOOD to be back. Both from a two-week break and back to winning ways. One player especially glad to be back is Goalkeeper Michael Gspurning, in his first game action since early May. And he didn't disappoint. After an inexplicably undefended through ball, Gspurning returned to his old, box-dominating ways with 3 saves and loads of punchouts.
