A thoughtful and humorous look at the play, business and drama that is Toronto FC and sometimes Major League Soccer.
Episode 413 – 22/06/17 #ScubaMcLachlan
The gang is mostly here to recap #CanMNT matches vs. Curacao and Honduras, start the debate of World Cup games awarded (pre-news release), some #CanPL ongoings, talk #TFClive against the New York Red Bulls and the usual malarkey. In this episode, Tony has one whale of a time, Mark makes his bad puns on-porpise and Kristin is ALL about fish for some reason.
Episode 412 – 22/06/08 #CristinSoccerBusiness
The gang is mostly hear to discuss the week which should've been so easy but then there was a player's strike by the #CanMNT and the various statements that came out afterwards. Also, there was a Voyageurs Cup winner, look ahead to Curacao, and so much malarkey, not all of it is ours! In this episode, Kristin loved (loved!) the seats, Mark was so close to having it all but he's good with it, and Tony loves some Curaçoan depth chart.
Episode 411 – 22/06/02 #DaddyBradley
The gang is back (sorry for both absence and that we're still doing this) to look back at the sloppy #TFClive vs Chicago match, talk about the CONCACAF Champions League news, the 2020 Voyageurs Cup, #CanMNT vs Panama and not Iran, and heaping spoonfuls of malarkey. In this episode Duncan is workshopping a pilot for a new show, Mark reveals how he has come this far with analysis, Kristin really really doesn't like Forge and Tony has a cough over a sweater he may or may not have designed.
Episode 410 – 22/05/18 #RubInSpices
The gang is all here where we review TFC vs Orlando, preview vs DC, recap the Voyageur Cup action, talk about the #CanMNT matches in Vancouver coming up, Phonzie as an MC, and a bunch of other malarkey. In this episode, Kristin thinks "frenching" is something completely different, Tony declares difficulty resting until a town in German, Mark wants to put a bounty on sweeper keepers and Duncan anchors the terrible rhyme game that broke out all episode long.
Episode 409 – 22/05/10 #NoTime #ElSchaffico
The gang is here to quickly recoup TFC's disasters of the last week and a bit, speculate about current form, take a trip around the country, preview Orlando City and malarkey but faster. In this episode Kristin, Mark, Duncan and eventually Tony were here.
Episode 408 – 22/04/28 #GrimaceIsATasteBud?
The gang is all here to review the what-the-f-ery that was Toronto visit with the Pizza Rats, look at the CanPL schedule this weekend (even though there was a game day of recording), talk some League 1 Ontario, longtime friend of the show Mike Hudson (@mikehudsonsucks) joins us to discuss and preview FC Cincinnati's visit on Saturday, and the usual silliness. In this episode, Mike has a memory of TFCII like a steel trap!, Duncan may or may not record shirtless (pure speculation), Kristin gets called out from being from wherever she wants when convenient (finally!), Mark confesses to getting his Kubos mixed up (who doesn't) and Tony is predicting future NASCAR drivers.
Let’s laugh for the Reds
I try very hard to like this show. I’ve been a reds supporter since day one and can certainly relate to the generally pessimistic attitude of the panel, but all too often I find it too cynical and not particularly informative. I get it - fans get together and have some laughs. Just for myself, I can’t listen to the same jokes for an hour. This is pretty much the same reason I don’t listen to the football ramble anymore either.
TFC tawk at snark factor 10
Because it sucks following any team religiously, in any sport, really, and sometimes you need to laugh through the tears.
Other than the carrot/chip crunching, very informative podcast. Good banter between friends and covers more than just TFC. Canadian soccer, in general, gets good coverage on here. Very much recommended.
