    I'll admit...I had a lot of harsh words last night...it seemed TFC was doing everything it could not to possess the ball.

    But at the end of the night, we were the better team.

    And we were the better team in Toronto.

    Pre-season or no pre-season, we were better.

    Good article, Ben. And very astute observations regarding De Guzman.

    Great read Ben.

    It certainly was a fun, stressful, and entertaining night at Joe's.

    We were not the better team, the match ended in a draw...
    And according to the scoring changes, a fair result should have been a victory of Motagua by 2 goals.

    We were the luckier team.

    Sorry bud. The only stat that matters is goals scored. You can't finish, you didn't deserve to win.

    I don't care how many fouls are committed, how much possession you have.

    Inter beat Barca in the Champions League Semi Final, and nobody was talking about how they were the worse team, even though they had considerably less possession.

    I'm saying it again:

    We were not the better team, the match ended in a draw...
    According to the official result (= goals scored).

    You said that both in Toronto and in Honduras we were the better team.
