Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

After a lacklustre performance against what was supposed to be a weaker opponent led to a fourth defeat on the season, questions are beginning to rise as to what this team really is. A season that began with so much optimism after a road win in Seattle to open the season is starting to feel very familiar to Toronto supporters. The silver lining in that cloud is that the Voyageurs Cup competition is upon us. There has only been one area of consistent success for TFC in their history and it is this competition.

The hottest Canadian club at the moment is the one that has never won the Voyageurs Cup, the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Caps have been oh so close on more than one occasion but have managed to come up short each time. Vancouver released designated player Kenny Miller this week but even with that move the Whitecaps have been buzzing in attack ahead of former Toronto fan favourite Matias Laba. TFC will have to be sharp to fend off the Whitecaps attack that scored three inside of the opening 20 minutes this weekend at BC Place.

So TFC are in tough taking on Vancouver but they’ve faced worse, right? Post your predictions in the comment section below or tweet them to me, @Stouffvillain. As always 2 points for the correct result, 1 point for the correct TFC score and 1 point for the correct opponent score. Here are the results so far this year.
