Striking out

On Thursday I was informed that Mo Johnston would not talk about Brian McBride. At the time I never thought much of the decision; 'Fair enough' I remember thinking to myself.
But on Saturday the generosity waned.

For the better part of six months the Toronto FC brain-trust has speculated on bringing in a striker to fill the net. For the better part of three months John Carver has emphasized the need for a quality striker. The moratorium needs to end, a name is needed.

In New England, TFC played their best game away from BMO Field (http://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/2008/06/28/tfc--revolution/) since the win in Los Angeles back in April. John Carver's team competed, no one can deny that truth, but rarely caused a stir up front. Danny Dichio struggled with an organized Revs' back three who were disinterested in playing the rough and tumble game that seems to motivate Dichio. The big centre forward was replaced by the slashing Jeff Cunningham, whose pursuit of the 100-goal plateau will need at least a fourth game.

It has become increasingly clear that the media has little to offer TFC fans/supporters. I have stop reading these articles that are writen by the Oracles of the Obvious.

Oh, and thanks Denime!
