    Or something that can actually happen soon......the supporters can tone themselves down to equal the product on the field.

    Blindly chanting and singing/cheering day in and a day out for a team that plays crap day in and day out sends no messages to the player, FO or other fans.......

    TFC fans in my opinion seem to be adapting the same mentality as Leaf fans.

    Mediocre suits us perfectly. We can win and play well one game and then fuck things up for a stretch.

    We are just mediocre. And mediocre = No playoffs = Fire Mo and Cummins.

    Barely anyone is not acknowledging that fact. We all know Cummins is a sub par manager. However, tonight the loss lies squarely on the players as NO ONE played well. Clearly they were not interested in playing more games while not making any additional money in the process. Sure, Cummins could have made some key tactical substitutions but whatever ... we should have never been in this position in the first place. I would be pissed at Cummins if this was an out lier performance. Unfortunately shit like this has been par for the course for this team over the past 3 years.

    If Dichio's post shot went in, half the people posting in here would be all positive and happy about the teams performance...
    oh and CONCACAF refs are a joke. Serioux wasn't even touched on that red card call.
    Thank you for not wanting to sell the farm! Maybe changes need to be made, but I think that Cummins put out THIS YEAR'S top team and they could not produce. It is now time to try out some different, younger, players (Sanyang, Gomez, Nana to name a few), and some different formations (4-4-2; or at least a system with 2 strikers).

    I think they did look tired, can't blame them after three really tough games (Crew, PRI, NE) in such a short time... and that effects emotions as well. They also need to play better as a team, true, but this may be a blessing in disguise as they can rest for the playoff push, and when they make the playoffs everyone can sing their praises again.

    Great job by the fans down there, represented TFC well!

    at least the team can't use CCL games and fatigue as an excuse if not make the playoffs this year

    When you fail to score a single goal against a USL team in 3 hours of play you know the team is in need of a major overhaul. Before the defense was the most criticized, but clearly offense is questionable.

    Gerba is good but he needs someone that can play the majority of a game with him. Barret works hard game in and out but his final touch on crosses or shots just isn't there... ever.

    Steve Nicol reached those finals with an unremarkable team. Sure he lost all four, but he won the Superliga, which is an achievement in itself.

    I'm sorry Beach, were it not for Nicol the revs would be one of those teams we look forward to playing and not the persistent menace they were till we beat them at home this year.

    We could do a hell of a lot worse than Nicol, and actually, we have.

    spot on. I gave up counting the number of crosses from the edge of the bloody 18 yard box especially by Brennan in both matches. It is SUCH a low percentage ball yet he persisted in this for both matches - to a packed PR defence and no big target man (aside from the cameos by DD then Brennan was subbed off).

    Make the sprint or have an overlapping teammate- if you get to the damn by-line and whip it in anything can happen. So, some such moves would break down, you still have a better chance of sneaking a deflection/scramble than you do with those bloody hanging crosses that the defenders were eating up over the tie.

    Clueless.

    After the recent string of stinging matches, theres no better time to strip the band off jimmy, give it to dwyane, and set this ship on a new course.

    But that won't happen

    Yeah, most would get fired after 0-2 or 0-3.

    Okay, really, I'm kidding, it would be great if he came here but that doesn't sem too likely so we need to find the next Nicol.

    Sure the team was flat, very flat. But we lost the first game, as we failed to put the ball in the box, and we got burned on the counter, something that was happening from like the fith minute of the first game. Yet we did not adjoust. The only thing that kept us in that PRI is a very untallented team, particullarly in the last third of the field, they win through defence, tactics and discieplin.

    fair comment. But for me , he encapsulates the frustration of this bloody team tho'. You can SEE the quality but something just isn't right.

    I think his stats are 2 goals 1 assist in 20-odd matches. Not good enough, and FFS would he please PLAY to the bloody whistle?

    Cummins has to go, it appears he can't inspire this team to do jack shit. That was an embarrassment to Toronto. The players seemed to have no cohesiveness, no sense of urgency and no pride.

    Barret is a shit striker, and he sure as hell can’t deliver the ball well. What good is he? His first touch is appalling.

    Gerba is obviously unfit at the moment, I do however have confidence that Winsper can get him into shape, supposing Gerba actually wants to.

    Can someone tell me what Garcia was doing taking a shot (in the last minute) from 30+ yards out as opposed to delivering a good ball to someone like Dichio?

    Not that is has any bearing on the pathetic football we played tonight, but what the hell was with the ref? A straight red for the PRI dude, missed penalty calls...etc etc...

    FYI, the "Miracle" in Montreal was just that, a fucking miracle, one of which I doubt we will see again for a long time.

    Mo should've been fired last year. The fails he have delivered is just...mind boggling.

    We must demand that he be stripped of the band. Or it won't happen.

    We're not done in MLS, and there's no other competitions we could still possibly be in other than the CL

    I can't fucking believe this shit. TFC better focus on making the playoffs and not let the opportunity slip. I am very disappointed. Something needs to be done about this team.

    A lot of the players/staff saw this competition more important than making the playoffs believe it or not.
