Defoe apparently heading back to London – Nelsen sacked – And TFC faces its biggest 2 months ever with increased uncertainty.
The MLS transfer window closes tomorrow (August 6th). Why not securing a new centre back for TFC might be a huge error.
In this video blog I take a look at the critical error that MLS ref Ted Unkel made early on that arguably cost TFC three precious points and many of the others he made in a shockingly poor display of officiating. I also take a look at how well the Reds did compete against one of the very best opponents they will see this season in Kansas City and how Nelsen still needs to find more ways going forward to take advantage of what he now has to work with.
Post game thoughts on a memorable night at BMO Field as the Reds stormed back from an early two nil deficit to win 4-2. In this post I take a look back at the win and the defensive lapses that led to the need for the comeback in the first place. I also take a look at both the prowess of Defoe and the need for more secondary scorers to start stepping up. Finally I include some video from the stands and outside the stadium as supporters celebrate the win in true TFC style.
In this post game video blog I take another look at the current state of MLS officiating (here is a hint… the word POXY is used often!), the apparent tactical ‘stubborness’ of coach Ryan Nelsen and again how the depth the front office has accumulated finally gives a TFC head coach the flexibility to do things better.
In this post I talk World Cup, the renewed depth on display for the Reds, the Gilberto goal, Defoe’s goal scoring pace and where this draw puts Toronto FC solidly in the playoffs hunt.
Back from the dead. Thoughts on all recent things TFC, particularly Issey, Doneil Henry and the importance of the Voyageurs Cup
In spite of an eye opener type of performance for youngster Kyle Bekker a shorthanded Toronto FC lost at home to Colorado 1-0 this past Saturday. Video thoughts post game.
In this post game video blog I take a look back at TFC’s surprising short-handed victory over Columbus that saw just about every Toronto player exceed expectations in a 2-0 result. I also take a look at some suprisingly creative tactical innovations/selections from Mr. ‘4-4-2′ Nelsen that worked quite well and I try and put this unprecedented nine points – two shutouts – two road wins season start into some sort of historical context.
Toronto FC crashes back to earth after a rough 3-0 defeat in Salt Lake City Saturday night. In this post game video blog I take a brief look back at the match and some of the apparent weaknesses the loss exposed (Bloom and Orr come immediately to mind).
I also try to explain why we should not jump off tall buildings after just one game nor should we be exalting after the first two results either. Finally I try and explain how the loss shows how the DP signings and new players coming in can only partially make up for seven previous seasons of gross ineptitude – and that there is still a ways for TFC to go.
Post game video thoughts after TFC’s splendid home opening win versus DC United.
BMO Field will be expanded. However we still have one chance to keep the Argonauts out.
