The Playoffs: TFC's march to justification

the yorkies at related • 0 views

The long-shot prospect of Toronto FC making the 2014 MLS playoffs represents one glorious opportunity for those that control this club from up high. No, it is not to reward the most beaten-down of all MLS supporters - it is justification.
Already, many fans have come to loathe the four-week "must-win" campaign that has devolved into the "we're still mathematically possible" reality we have today but as annoying as the internal club promotion may be - TFC is still in with a tiny chance.

"OMG! Rollback prices are like sooooo 2007!"

"Keep rollin', rollin' rollin'..."  We haven't had to eat a lot of crow in regards to Toronto FC over the years but today they prepared us a wee Crow Butty. While most supporters have been very vocal in their demand for lower prices on season tickets in 2013 before renewing - we had little belief that the club would actually come through.

Balls of String: Stories to watch as Toronto FC plays out a lost season

"Today's attendance is 19,575... thank you fans"Getting casual fans to watch TFC matches when times were good... well at least fun.... was a challenge. Now, as yet another season enters the "playing for next year" phase, even getting the most ardent supporters interested grows harder. For those of you who know they are addicted to this club and will be back next year despite 2012, finding a reason to watch a futile string of matches may be frustrating.

It has been a troubling season for Tottenham Hotspur.

After a £100 million summer spending spree and the capture of much-coveted talents like Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen, Spurs failed to spark and fired coach Andre Vilas-Boas in December in the wake of a 5-0 home humiliation by Liverpool which left the North Londoners seventh in the Premier League.

The Price of Football in 2013: increases stop, but the beautiful game still massively expensive - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

BBC Sport's Price of Football 2013 study (which analyses the price of attending football matches across England and Scotland) makes for grim reading. Although the bigger picture shows that the steady increase in price has generally halted, the truth is that the beautiful game is not a cheap pastime for the average Joe to pursue.

THE STARTING 11: New TFC 2013 Season Ticket renewal taglines

TFC Ticket Centre - "Operators are standing nearby"Things have been conspicuously quiet so far on the TFC Season Ticket renewal front. In fairness, the job of TFC ticket rep is currently ranking in career satisfaction alongside "Part-Time Hobo Foot Carer" and "Assistant Crack Dealer". Perhaps the club is waiting for TFC fans to forget Joey Saputo's awesomely dropped Impact price reduction boast or maybe they are waiting for TFC to go on a 5-game winning streak to get supporters' spirits up.
