    Default Post game: TFC vs Tauro

    Win is a win. A bit lucky on Koevermans goal but really should have bossed around Tauro more. Really missed Avila and Plata, though Soolsma has really stepped up

    overall a decent performance .. would have liked to have seen a bit better decisions in the attacking third

    Morgan had a great game.

    Too close for comfort. TFC had no business sitting on the 1-0 lead like that. But a much-needed 3 points.

    Last 20 minutes almost hoof'n pray defending circa 2007 for us. Why can't we possess and widen the field when in the lead?

    So is the best scenario for us a Dallas win tomorrow night?

    Giving up a free kick in the last minute just outside the box was very poor and could have cost TFC 2 points.

    Not the best game they've played, but a wins a win.

    Winter's strategy and formation were good this match. Putting on early pressure really affected Tauro, it looked like they never quite hit their stride. Frings as combination MF/Sweeper and moving between 4-3-3 and 5-4-1 (it looked like) worked very well.

    Seems like. If they beat Pumas and Tauro, then they will already be in when they play TFC. So that makes tomorrow's game something to follow.

    I couldn't watch the game, just got home, I read in 10 mins the game thread.

    Just an unconvincing and lucky 1-0 with a semi-amateur, poor team?
    And the majority of you seem happy enough just because of the 3 points?

    Holy smokes, there are some incredible low expectations from TFC.
    But whatever...

    The Good...Koev, Eck, Morgan, Harden

    The Bad...Dunfield(didn't win anything)...Soolsma (how many bad balls can he can send in...even his corners were BRUTAL...and man is he SLOW)

    I think so. A win by Dallas is the best scenario, next to a draw. Pumas winning is the worst scenario for sure.

    That "poor" team tied Dallas and Pumas. Seems like today's match wasn't the only one you missed.

    you do realize that Tauro drew both Dallas away and down ten men for most of the game vs Pumas at home (you know, two teams that TFC shit the bed against)

    Tauro played very well, esp in 2nd half

    Thoughts:
    Great to get a win.
    Frings is everywhere.
    Koevermans is the striker we waited so long for.
    Morgan is our long term answer to LB.
    Still need a CB.
    When we want to play we can play some nice football but old habits die hard.
    RJ Broadhead should never call another soccer game...EVER.
    Kara Lang is still hot.

    A semi-amateur poor team that held Dallas and Pumas to a draw. Yep, that's the team we beat. Again.

    and you seem to have some incredibly high expectations of us if you expect we would not be happy enough with 3 pts

    I know that, the Pumas game was a fluke, they fielded the kids, and Dallas had a ton of missed chances.
    So what you were saying again?

    Agree on all points. One more - Kara Lang makes Andi Petrillo look like Tom Brokaw.

    Why don't you watch the game in 6 before you rain on the parade? And also watch the Tauro v. Dallas highlights on the CONCACAF website. They have been an under-rated team.

    OK, this changes everything.
    Thanks for this info - I never read from anyone in the game thread or here that Tauro played well.

    But why?? Let's just get the negativity going right after a win and shit on anyone who thinks the slightest thing was positive about the game! Wooooo Hoooooo!!!

    Hey we won....they had NOTHING on net...so why the negativity??? Sure we should have had a few more goals, but Johnson and Soolsma were rubbish in sending anything decent into the box..

    Tauro tied Pumas and Dallas on their own turf, so I'll gladly take the victory. TFC didn't play to their potential, but the backline kept a clean sheet, and didn't force Kocic to make any difficult saves. Eckersley, Morgan, Frings, and Koevermans were fantastic tonight, and everyone else put in a workmanlike effort to preserve three crucial points.

    I will definitely be rooting for the Hoops tomorrow against Pumas.
