Apparently Christian Roldan of the Sounders admitted that TFC dominated them after the game. That type of honesty from an opposing player is rare.

Tough way to lose. TFC was probably the best team in the league this year and didn't really get a chance to show it until everyone got healthy toward the end of the season.

There's not a lot to complain about. They actually had a deep team, which is rare in MLS thanks to the salary cap. It's been ages since we even heard from the young players that kept TFC afloat in the summer during all the injuries (Hamilton, Bono, Delgado, Chapman, Babouli, Endoh). If they continue with a 3-5-2, maybe they could use Cheyrou's money to find another stalwart centre back to replace Hagglund. A number ten would be nice, but not as important with Osorio improving this year. We'll see if they lose anyone to Minnesota or Atlanta in the expansion draft.

I've seen it suggested that they should play the shootout before extra time, then if ET ends in a draw revert to the result of the shootout. I think I prefer that idea. If they played 100 shootouts it likely would have ended 55-45 or closer. Knowing the result of the shootout allows the unlucky team a final chance to push for the win.

I'm all for making them play until some cunt drops dead allowing someone to score.

Cheyrou, Johnson and Beitashour are as good as gone, and there is some uncertainty around Cooper with his loan expiring after last night. Personally, I would like to see them find a more offensive minded RB with pace to replace Beitashour and another holding midfielder to pair with Bradley. I also wouldn't mind seeing TFC utilize Endoh more and Osorio less.

You guys needed a dome to play the game in if your going to host a game in Canada this late in the year. The weather will make all of them uncomfortable and not to the advantage of your side. It helps equalize the talent when both are struggling to keep their concentration level high.

My two cents

You're not buying it that they said that? I guess this is fine.

The quality of play was typical MLS when one team is outmatched and just trying to keep it tied. I've seen this before - used to have season seats for this hot garbage believe it or not.

Armando Cooper is no longer a loan player, and now under contract with TFC for next season. Additionally, Atlanta selected Clint Irwin in the expansion draft, but TFC reacquired him in a trade for Mark Bloom and allocation money.

It also looks like Cheyrou and Johnson are gone unless they accept significant pay cuts for next season.

This is the single greatest season put forth by a pro Toronto sports team. They were dominant start to finish. I bet we see some guys take off though.

I think we keep most of the core intact, only guys I'm worried about are Giovinco and Moor. The latter can be replaced but obviously you can't replace Giovinco.

The league just announced a ton of new allocation money. Forget about losing guys, I want them to add Atiba Hutchinson and really take a run at a Champions League title in a few months.

They qualify for champions league? I didn't know this :donger:

Also, I have never seen Jozy Altidore before, other than long shots. That dude lives in my building I'm pretty sure.

Mexican teams dominate it, but TFC should be MLS's best bet to win it since the Galaxy won it in 2000.

No, it's the opposite. There are fewer teams because the Central American countries no longer get two seeds. They also got rid of the group stage, so it's a pure knockout tournament this year.

I think these changes will make it easier for MLS teams. Less travel and fewer games will make depth less of an issue, which is the big difference between MLS and Mexican teams.

Chivas are 7-12-12 this season. Tigres are 16-6-9 and America are 15-6-10 (W-L-D).

If TFC can beat Tigres and America, they absolutely can beat Chivas. :superghey:
