Here are Tim Bezbatchenko’s remarks to the TFC Season Seat Holders who attended a barbeque at the Kia Training Ground on Sunday September 14th.
Defoe Goes – So Does Nelsen
Defoe apparently heading back to London – Nelsen sacked – And TFC faces its biggest 2 months ever with increased uncertainty.
Window Shutting On Def Depth
The MLS transfer window closes tomorrow (August 6th). Why not securing a new centre back for TFC might be a huge error.
The tale of a man called Unkel
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.
Back From The Dead
Back from the dead. Thoughts on all recent things TFC, particularly Issey, Doneil Henry and the importance of the Voyageurs Cup
TFC Put The Boots To The Crew
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.
Reds Lose at RSL – Back Down To Earth
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.
