Welcome to The Yorkies
The site is up. It’s not functioning perfectly, but it’s getting there.
We have some big plans, but the biggest plan is we’re different. There is nothing wrong with the other supporters groups. We know that. We just have a different perspective with what’s going on in the game and in the stands. We’re not looking for hate, or to cause trouble.
There are some fundamental things that The Yorkies will do that differs from the rest of the south stands. We will embrace creativity and moreso when it’s done on the fly and in reaction to what we’re watching. We are not looking for publicity. We just want to be supporters identifiable as an alternative. We give large amounts of credit to the U-Sector and Red Patch Boys. Someone has to be first, and really, that’s one hell of a first step. Thank you lads.
However, we are independent. We want to be supporters. We want to be entertained. We want good football with 11 lads trying their damnedest every night, win or lose.If you play with heart and conviction, you will forever be great in our eyes.
More info to follow in the coming weeks. And if you found this site early, I didn’t tell a soul.
Who Are Ya?
The Yorkies are a casual firm of Toronto FC supporters. We were established with the sole purpose of furthering our beloved club’s fervent support with a solid focus on putting Football First. We are proud to join the existing supporters groups who have made the club and BMO Field the envy of MLS and we recognize the great foundation that has already begun. While we do aim to be different in some aspects of support, we will never to claim to be superior to any other group. We truly believe, like elsewhere in the world of football, a major club can have many different groups who have mutual respect and cooperate to build a formidable support base for their team.
Game Day 6 – DC @ TFC
Yes. I’m very well aware that there’s no Game Day 5 – Columbus @ TFC. You know what. Here’s what you missed Shitlotto dive after Shitlotto dive after Shitlotto dive. He was flopping around like Ronaldo in a Portugal shirt (he does too, don’t even start!) Goaless draw that TFC did not deserve. I hate Shitlotto. There. Got it. Now lets move on.
2-0-3 in our last 5. That means TFC has not lost in a month or so. Second-year teams shouldn’t be on such a tear. Mind you, unlike a hockey expansion team, where the NHL is the pinnacle of the sport, MLS is not… In fact, it’s nowhere near. And because of this, We can find great players for our standard at a fraction of retail. This allows just about any expansion side the opportunity to bring in quality in their club’s infancy.
And that’s exactly what MoJo has done and Carver is making it happen, much to the dismay of the rest of MLS. Suckers.
To be honest, i don’t really care much what DC is doing. As arrogant as this sounds, i expect Toronto to beat everyone pretty handily. Their form is exquisite and if the league hasn’t noticed, they are in trouble.
Saturday will be a solid test if this is ‘home form’ or just ‘form’. Until then, up the reds!
Game Day 4 – New York @ TFC
It’s a beautiful, sunny night… somewhere else. Under the blanket of a threatening rain storm, it’s a cold-ish Thursday night where the world champions elect take their 3 game win streak against New York Extreme Beverage (2-1-1) at the B. The 7:00pm kick-off for tonight’s contest provided us with an attendance under 20,000 but I bet you still couldn’t buy a ticket.
Still deliriously optimistic about the season? Yes. Still weary about the rain? Maybe.
Ex-Celtic (name dropping) Oliver Tebily is not starting. But the line up doesn’t look much different from Saturday.
Yes, I’m late on the report. I have a life dammit. 🙂
I’ve got my shoes on now… so lets dance!
