Beyond POV-FS – No Lov' Lost: NYC FC exacts a pound of flesh from TFC at Vocal Minority

The good folks over at Vocal Minority, who have decided to supplement their audio words with some written ones, have a snazzy new website – the header art alone is worth the visit – and seeing as it was nearly two days old already, it was about time it featured a piece by yours truly.

As such, a bit of a shade-throwing post went up yesterday. Pure speculation, but an interesting confluence of circumstances surrounding New York City FC's decision to select Daniel Lovitz in the MLS Expansion Draft and then trade him back to Toronto; reminiscent of similar shenangians back in 2006 – and could perhaps lead to the birth of a new rivalry – check it out.

Beyond POV-FS – TFC Top 30 Countdown: #16 Jackson at Waking the Red

Another contribution to Waking the Red's massive end of season review, counting down through every player to take to the pitch for the club in 2014.

Ending the first half of the list, at number sixteen, is the elusive Jackson, a player that many never quite took to heart – as foretold by his place in the countdown – despite being one of the better contributors to the side this season – with four goals he had the fourth most for the club in 2014.

Check it out - as well as the rest of the countdown

Beyond POV-FS – MLS Week in Review: 2014 MLS Cup Final at Canadian Soccer News

A full review of the MLS Cup Final between the Los Angeles Galaxy and the New England Revolution is up over at Canadian Soccer News.

Like most finals, it was a close-fought affair, rather than the run-and-gun encounter fans always hope for – at least the winner proved to be a moment of pure class – check it out.

Also, never got around to posting the link for the review of the second legs of the conference finals, which can be viewed here, if one is so inclined.

This endeavour, recapping every match played throughout the MLS season is a massive undertaking – the end of the season comes with a certain amount of relief. That said, thanks so much for following along, it has been a fun season and with two new clubs joining the league in 2015 it looks to be getting even better.
