Round two against the Vancouver Whitecaps goes Saturday in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship final, after a 1-0 MLS win in round one on Wednesday night.
The real “round one” of this match took place way back in May, when TFC stole a late 1-1 draw, and came away ahead on aggregate. With a plethora of injuries and a pissed off Whitecaps side, the task is a tough one for TFC.

Here’s the video, put together by members of our own group in conjunction with The Voyageurs, North End Elite, Red Patch Boys and Canadian Soccer News.
If this video doesn’t give you goosebumps and make you want to scream out the national anthem while decked out in red and white, perhaps you should have your pulse (and passport) checked.

Toronto goes for their third consecutive Voyageurs Cup on Wednesday, having tied Vancouver 1-1 in last week’s first leg.
With the away goal advantage, TFC will look to limit the Whitecaps to yet another runners-up medal by winning the trophy on home turf for the fist time. It won’t be easy, as Toronto’s players have been played into the ground while Vancouver have had the luxury of a week off (that’s after resting several key starters in anticipation of last week’s affair).
Will they do it? Will TFC win the Cup in front of their own fans for the first time?

Toronto gets their chance to nullify the awful memories of the season opener when they travel to Vancouver to take on the Whitecaps in the first leg of the Voyageurs Cup final.
Both teams are struggling, but the loud chatter from the West Coast about how much “better” the ‘Caps are than TFC has quieted down to a whisper in recent weeks.
With a win at Empire Field on Wednesday, TFC can shut down that chatter completely.

For as bad as TFC looked in their 3-0 away loss at Seattle this past weekend, FC Edmonton has look far worse over the past seven days.
A 3-0 dismantling by Toronto was followed up by an even more embarrassing 5-0 loss to the Montreal Impact in league play for the Edmonton side, the two games representing FCE’s “home openers” and introduction to their fans.
As much as Edmonton should love the fact that they are able to get away from the scene of their failures over the past week, TFC has to be overjoyed to be returning home after their shameful performance on the West Coast. With a three-goal aggregate lead and an opponent that makes Toronto FC look like FC Barcelona, the Reds will be looking forward to erasing their shame by putting the boots to their hapless Albertan cousins.
