Toronto FC vs Liverpool, Friendly: Open Thread

 Toronto FC vs Liverpool, Friendly: Open Thread

Liverpool officially kicks off their 2012 US summer tour with their friendly today against Toronto FC at Rogers Centre. The match kicks off at 4pm ET and will be televised live on FOX Soccer for viewers in the United States.

Today’s match will be eagerly watched by Liverpool and neutral fans across the globe. It’ll be our first chance to see Liverpool in action under new manager Brendan Rodgers. While we can’t expect to take a lot from this match, since it’s only a 90-minute warm-up, it’ll be fascinating to see if Liverpool will begin with a 4-3-3 system and, if so, how they’ll adapt to it.

Toronto has a proud history of supporting Liverpool FC, so I’m eagerly anticipating how many Liverpool supporters will turn out for a match in front of a great soccer city. The last time Liverpool played in Canada was eight years ago, but the country’s support for Liverpool is still as strong as ever as witnessed by the 4,000 fans who turned out for an open training session in Toronto on Friday night.

Before, during and after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.
