  4. Shyte happens.

    mm available at McEwans eh ? I know without looking any further that this makes it a hipster product that will no doubt be overpriced and underwhelming ... yup $10 per 100g so $100 per Kg.

    and here's me thinking the day was tinged with the news that it was my last game as a UK resident ! 4 days after that game I emigrated to Canada ... bumping into David Bagan in the Glasgow airport departure lounge on the day of my flight while wearing an ICT top :)

  10. 12 week minimum ban for standing

    This is what Scottish football needs again ... what is the problem with standing? Every TFC home game I have been to for the last 11 years has been in the same section at BMO Field (113) which has always been designated a supporters section and where flags, banners, standing and singing have been not only allowed but encouraged. This is in a stadium with upwards of 20,000 in attendance for most matches, where alcohol is served by the bucketload, and where this section is always full to capacity regardless of the other sections ... There are no official 'safe standing' seats like you might see in Germany (although that is coming for the front 5 or 6 rows) just regular seats like the TCS. In 11 years I have never seen an issue with standing other than 'tourists' who either have not been to games, or who normally sit elsewhere in the ground, bitching about why they cannot see for those standing when they do manage to acquire tickets in this section ... they are quickly pointed towards these signs that the club attached to the stairwells and also the same info printed on the tickets ! Even REAL Tourists visiting from out of town - including 3 sets of ICT supporters I have taken to TFC games in the past - know to stand, sing and enjoy the atmosphere ! If you enjoy you are fine, if you get out of line you are dealt with by security or the police. On every visit back to ICT I am disheartened by the atmosphere in the stands and also the threat hanging over supporters if they dare to try and make an atmosphere. Some may argue we have always had the 'sweetie rustlers' and yes we did, and in my area of the main stand I would likely have been tarred with that brush, but I know that both myself and those around me did try back in the day to get things going .... and nowadays when I visit I just tend to keep my mouth shut. (although I did get a warning at Xmas at the Livi game as discussed on another thread at the time). Threats of FBOs or criminal convictions as well as over officious stewarding and in some cases unsympathetic leadership teams at various clubs have sucked the absolute life out of games at many stadiums. Its another attempt to enforce a one-size-fits-all solution to a problem that does not exist on any great scale outside of the usual two suspects. Kenny Cameron has been vilified on here since he stepped down but I do know he had broached the standing issue with the SPFL and was very fan focused (to the point where you could simply drop by for a chat !). The document circulated may have been mandated by the SPFL, or by some change in the handbook requirements to have a published policy about just about anything, but it certainly appears that the relationship between club and fans has reverted from 'Together-Ness' to being one of 'Them and Us' that existed a long time ago and did no-one any good and another reason why we need a cohesive, coherent and effective supporters group like CJT V2.0

  16. Political Correctness off topic stuff

    indeed I think he would ! I try to pay little heed to those who are offended on behalf of others ... especially when the others are not actually offended ! One of the great things about living where I do is that the city is so diverse that I could tick so many of these 'PC' boxes if I wanted to use adjectives in front of the word friend .... and these friends can be just as Non-PC as anyone else ... especially after a few beers ;)

  19. Toronto FC - 2018

    Despite the success of TFC they are still the 'lesser' team in MLSE eyes ... The Maple Leafs and Raptors who play at the ACC are the golden boys and i guess get more retail space because they both play in that venue. The retail outlets in the stadium on game day are pretty well stocked. I usually buy my stuff at the stadium (15% discount for season ticket holders) or at National Sports where it is less expensive than official outlets even including the discount. The 'champions' stuff and replica tops with the gold star above the crest have been selling out almost as quickly as they come in. MLS also changed the approved online merchandise providers to 'FANatics' recently. The online store is pretty good and a flat rate of $24.95 shipping for international orders. https://www.mlsstore.com/toronto-fc/t-47126986+z-9389073-83814288
  20. Toronto FC - 2018

    Trying to keep all my Toronto FC postings in here ... apart from the odd mention in the matchday threads ! After winning it all last season ... and becoming the first team in MLS history to do the treble of domestic cup (Canadian Championship), Supporters Shield (equivalent to league champions) and MLS Cup ... there is a 4th trophy on the wish-list this year for TFC. The CONCACAF Champions League. This is the equivalent of the UEFA Champions League albeit not to the same quality but does still feature some strong teams from Mexico and other Central American and Caribbean countries and provides the winner with entry to the Club World Cup to be staged in Dubai in December. For the last 9 years it has been won by Mexican teams and on 7 of those occasions it was Mexican -V- Mexican teams in the final ! Only Salt Lake and Montreal from MLS have competed in the final in the last 10 years. So far this year TFC have edged out MLS rivals Colorado Rapids as well as current Liga MX Apertura champions Tigres UANL. On Tuesday they faced perennial powerhouses Club America who are 7 time winners of the Champions League and 12 time Liga MX winners. In typical CONCACAF fashion it was a rip-roarer of a night. The rain was pelting down, TFC won 3-1, there were accusations by the Mexican coach of Police brutality and that the referee made them change their underwear (!!!?) and from TFC manager that one of ours got an elbow to the face in the tunnel at half-time. The CCTV footage should be fun to watch when they release it .... Next week its off to Mexico and the famed Azteca stadium for the 2nd leg ... or in my case, a beer in front of the TV ! Its a standing joke about the officiating in Mexico and 3-1 may not be a big enough cushion ... but TFC fans were heartened when CONCACAF announced yesterday that the ref for this game will not be from CONCACAF but one of the top rated FIFA refs from the Asian Federation. Its part of a new referee exchange programme between the two federations [source] Took a ton of pictures at the game on Tuesday : click the image below to get to my Flickr Album for anyone interested
  21. Toronto FC - 2018

    RealSports at the Air Canada Centre / MLSE Headquarters has merchandise for all their teams (Raptors, Maple Leafs, TFC) . The matchday shops are inside the ground and open when there is a game on ... Sportchek, National Sports, and various other retailers all stock the tops, tshirts and hoodies as well.

  24. Inverness CT -V- Brechin City

    Great game, pissing rain, dodgy ref, accusations from their manager in the press conference that 3 players were assaulted by police, and in our conference that one TFC player was elbowed by a Club America official ... just another night in the competition that is CONCACAF ! The second leg at the Azteca stadium in Mexico next week should be quite something !
