    Edwards to me is purely a LB/LW/LWB... Shouldn't even be in the conversation for RB. I like Alseth but to me, Hasler is the bench RB when Beitashour is back

    Gutted we didn't get the clean sheet. This was my first game this year and was standing in the general admission north end area - not loud enough for a first place team!!

    Got to see all 4 goals tho which was nice.

    I think there's a bit of truth to that. I felt they were turning the screw a bit up to the goal. Whether that was by design or not on the part of Vanney....At any rate, the last few games really show that once it goes south on teams coming to BMO, it REALLY goes south. Home field will mean a lot for us I think.

    9 wins, 3 draws and 0 losses so far at Fortress BMO. TFC somehow has over 70% win rate all together. Nuts.

    Shows how important winning the Supporters Shield would be.

    Gareth Wheeler thinks that Portland tried to park the bus at first, which was my impression too.

    I think one of my favorite moments is that third goal - Giovinco tries to play it back to Altidore, but a Portland defender gets a toe on it leaving Jozy stranded, Morrow comes in and buries it and Jozy's celebrating it like he put it in himself (watch the replay around the 2:20 mark https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2017/...getting-better). I know Seba and Jozy need to be "greedy" sometimes as strikers but it's so awesome to see everyone really getting the team mentality and being excited for each other.

    1. Vanney's second-half adjustments

    Greg Vanney’s Toronto FC went on a four-goal scoring spree in the second half of their match against the Portland Timbers, after being held to just one shot on target during the first 45 minutes. The coaching staff’s adjustments at halftime were pivotal in propelling TFC to a win.
    Through the first half, the Reds were quite simply too nice to their opposition – they went forward with too few players (often just three players only to be met by at least Portland’s four defenders), they moved the ball too slowly and they progressed down the side of the field when it would have been far more dangerous to attack down the middle. Portland weren't particularly brilliant during the first half, Toronto just did them a number of favors.
    Vanney corrected all of this as his side emerged from the intermission with a different approach. Toronto’s first goal in the 58th minute featured an attack with five players, the ball moving much quicker – arriving in the final third from the defensive third with one or two touch passes in about eight seconds, and the entire attack started down the central channel of the field.
    It was more of the same during Toronto’s second goal. They promptly took advantage of spaces that opened up, they drove the ball centrally, and they committed five (arguably six) players to the attack.
    There are multiple reasons TFC has the most points in the league at the moment: quality players, depth of the squad, motivation from just coming up short last year. But Vanney and his staff’s contributions, especially visible in matches like this one, are a major advantage for an already impressive team.

    Good for him. I wonder how far back you'd have to look to find another outside defender winning player of the week honors - I'm guessing it's been a while.
