Qualifying for Brazil would likely get a couple of players like Junior Hoilett of Blackburn Rovers off the fence and into a Canadian jersey. Canada is away to St. Lucia on Friday (Oct. 7) and then home to Puerto Rico on the following Tuesday (Oct. 11th).

Toronto FC comes up with a huge 3-0 win in Dallas tonight. Danny Koevermans and Joao Plata with a pair while Milos Kocic posts the clean sheet. With that road win, TFC advances to the knockout round of the CONCACAF Champions League. There are still group matches to be played in the next 2 days so final placing as well as potential quarterfinal opponents are TBD. Group winners will be in one pot with the runners-up in the other pot. TFC will not face the other team to advance from their group. The quarterfinals will be played over 2 legs. 1st leg will be March 6-8, 2012 with the 2nd leg a week later.

Nearly forgot all about this match-up.  Thanks for posting, seahawk.  Finally, some great news!  At least, it beats reading about a lousy MLS season, for TFC fans.

TFC advances to the CCL knockout phase as the runner up in Group C after Pumas defeated Tauro 1-0 last night. 6 of the 8 places in the knockout phase are filled. The final 2 places will be filled tonight in the final 2 Group Stage games. TFC will host the 1st leg of their quarter-finals March 6-8. They can not draw Pumas in the quarters so potential opponents are Santos Laguna or defending CCL champs Monterrey of Mexico and either LA Galaxy or Alajuelense of Costa Rica.

Saturday night's game (Oct. 22) was TFC's final regular-season game, tying the New England Revolution 2-2, on home turf.

TFC finished with a 6-13-15 record, good for 33 pts., and eighth in the MLS Eastern Conference standings, their lowest overall totals since their expansion year of 2007, and, out of the playoffs.

All is not lost for TFC fans, as the TFC has made the quarter-final round of the CONCACAF Champions League, with plenty more to come (hopefully).

CONCACAF has announced that the draw for the knock-out phase of the Champions League will be on November 8th. Also, MLS has set November 23rd the date for the Montreal Impact expansion draft. The Impact will select 10 players in that draft.

Anyone watching match-day 4?


Saw some hi-lites from various games.  Looks like the top
clubs -- Bayern and Real Madrid -- are riding a wave atop
their respective divisions.  Of course, not to be overlooked
are the English clubs, namely Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Ajax & Man City.
 
I honestly think that if all keeps up,  it wouldn't come as a
surprise if the top clubs continue their winning ways.  So
far, so good.

Ah.... my Romanian friends in Romania must be wearing
paper bags over their heads what with the performances of
Chelul Galati!  A sports article referred to them as
"minnows".       :o :)

Ajax is from the Netherlands.

Forgot to rectify earlier.  Yes, they are, and they aren't doing too bad either.

Don't be such a stickler for the facts. To some people, that's just the east, east, east end of London.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Tough draw for TFC - http://tsn.ca/chl/story/?id=379961
Good match-up for the fans


Can hardly wait for the match-up.  We TFC fans will have to wait 'till March.  The winner is to play either the Seattle Sounders or Santos Laguna in the semis.

Whether the game with the Galaxy will take place at the Rogers Centre remains to be seen.  Would be better than BMO Field, because in early March, it will still be c-o-l-d.
Who knows what they'll decide.

BTW  the Galaxy are scoreless at BMO Feuld since 2009.  This could be to the TFC's advantage.
