    Feel kind of bad because half the fans probably thought it was tied.

    TFC were resilient tonight in the face of a hungry Tigres team. Giovinco was clutch tonight, scoring a goal and causing the other. There were a few defensive gaffes but hopefully those can be ironed out before the semi-finals.

    Congrats TFC!

    What a result

    The real challenge is next round though. America in way better form and Azteca in the second leg is not going to be fun.

    It shows how much we need Mavinga in there to sweep up the mistakes and deficiencies of Zabeleta, Moor and Hagglund. They're perfectly fine MLS defenders, but these Mexican sides have an attack on a whole other level.

    Bring on Club America!

    Thrilled with the result!

    Tigres UANL is a world class team <- ranked 24th by WorldClubRanking.com

    As a comparison, TFC is ranked 194th... Not sure what I think of this, and it probably gives less credibility to the website.

    They were pressing and scored off a nice header to tie the score at 2-2. Then the ref decided to gift them a penalty kick in the dying seconds for a BS hand ball call in the box.

    Good thing Giovinco scored that beauty free kick or we would have been screwed.

    I think the next leg is in 2 weeks. We really need Mavinga and Morrow back to face Club America.

    MLS doesn't get the recognition it deserves yet outside of the region. The league is still in it's infancy stages relatively speaking.

    Make no mistake, this was an upset, but I think TFC proved that the gap isn't nearly as wide as those rankings would have you believe.

    I have always been a poo-pooer of soccer, but TFC has really won me over the last couple of years. And last night was easily the first time I have ever been so immersed in a game. Tense watching the team trying to hold on to advance. Cheering loudly when they scored, especially Giovinco's gorgeous goal. And quite honestly, I was getting anxiety watching that game in how hostile the environment was. That crowd was ridiculously loud, and I was fearful for the TFC players and the ref.

    Great first half. Second half we looked like we were playing not to lose (which I guess we kind of were in a way).

    I like Drew Moor but his lack of foot speed was exposed time and time again by Tigres in that match. Another 5 minutes added on that game and we surely would have conceded again, IMO

    As another poster mentioned, we need Mavinga and Morrow back in there ASAP

    Glad to be going through tho, well done lads!
