    We can win this. This version has the 2017 belief.

    With Laryea, I wonder if Vanney is still smarting from not seeing now-U.S. national team member Daniel Lovitz's potential as a fullback and trying too hard. Laryea is a tricky winger who can contribute in the way De Leon does, but he's not a consistent enough professional yet to just up and start playing as a defender. He's not good enough at reading and reacting to do that, I suspect. He had two major gaffes today, one almost costing a goal and the other putting them ahead.

    Still miss Lovitz. Casualty of not playing with any wingers.

    I dunno. I think Lovitz is greatly overrated.

    Well, canít be too upset about 3 wins and a tie to start the season but we missed an opportunity today.

    Weíre going to actually start playing teams where the strikers can score on skill alone. So we canít afford bone head moves from Bono and soft goals in general.

    Really think Vanney got it wrong tactically today. We shouldnít be scrambling to change the entire shape of the team over the exclusion of one fullback and then putting in an inexperienced replacement as the wide player on that side of the field.

    Feels bad, but at least we salvaged the point. Poz didn't look so much in the match as last week.

    Maybe he tired towards the end.

    I still say Bono is better than Garret Sparks.

    This was a winnable game. Poz had a nice assist today, but his positioning is awkward. Too much time spent in the middle of the pitch, and not following through with his runs forward. Bradley had a forgettable game, as did Mavinga and Bono (whatís going on with him?). Canít win them all, I guess!

    Horrible performance for the last 15; felt liked me gave up and didn't play until the final whistle

    Rescued a point but we should've won today. Everything Chicago did offensively came from our own mistakes.

    Bono's poor decision changed the entire game, he needs to sit next week.

    Pozuelo looked completely gassed to me in the last 10 minutes, dropping insanely deep to get the ball and no desire to take on his man. Poor delivery from set pieces today too for him (in addition to the free kick late he hit the first defender on multiple corners too). But he played some pinpoint crosses and we got a goal out of one of them.

    Good job to get the tying goal, I think we would've lost this 2-1 last year. But boy oh boy Sapong's goal stings and I have to place most of the blame for these 2 lost points on Bono if I'm being honest.

    Moor and Mavinga are so bad, Ciman should be playing.

    Laryea, terrible. and risked red card.

    Bono, terrible. What the hell is he doing on the first goal...even though Moor turned it over and Mavinga's defensive effort was not adequate.

    Curtis and Manning need to get moving on this TAM winger. How different do those last 15 minutes look with a pacy guy that can beat his man there instead of Chapman?

    That Chigago team is Not Good, this I know. We tied, at home, this should have been a win. Obvious, I know.

    To me, it feels like weíre half way between a team thatís going to play 4-3-3 and one that plays 3-5-2 with a paper-thin roster. When someone goes down, it starts to get complicated what we do next.

    They needs to clean things up. I think a few players need to be moved as well. 2017 is over.

    Very disappointing result against an average MLS side. Although we showed some decent attacking intent, too many poor final passes and shots on goal. We need to be less frantic and start playing more accurate passes when going in on goal. Pozuelo was a pale shadow of the player we saw last week, and the question has returned if he really is money well spent. I also shudder to think what Seattle might do to our defence next week. The feelgood factor of the opening weeks is gone. The loss of Seba’s clinicalness and goal production still needs to be addressed, and our defence needs major work if a repeat of last season is to be avoided. Mavinga and Osorio (goal aside) really need to rediscover their form of two seasons ago season. Osorio in particular needs to provide better support for Jozy. Although we still need some more investment, the pot isn’t limitless.

    Who should stay and who should go, as of right now the team didn't fully show their heart and desire to get all 3 pts, and the teams are only going to get tougher from here on out

    Iím going with no on this one. We donít need that weirdo running around the field making rash challenges and abandoning his defensive post.

    Although I will concede neither Mavinga or Moor is inspiring confidence. Mavinga looks like a meat-head at times with his decisions and Moorís legs look like they are done.

    Do you know who we needed, in this game? Seba, thats who. Chicago double teamed Altidore, Poz was left with few options (for the first 60 min Osorio was invisible), the others tried hard, but are simply not in Giovinco’s universe. I hope front office finds a talented, proven goal scorer, otherwise a lot of possession, in these games, will be wasted.

    Their forwards are very good and their keeper, is much better than ours. Sometimes, that is all what matters. Take Altidore, Poz, Mavinga, Bradley, off of our team, and they would fight for last place.

    Between watching them, and the earlier New York-Montreal game, Holy MLS, spare me, but I am a diehard.

    Lots of doom and gloom about a team that's not been beaten in 4 games to start the season.

    I feel like if TFC doesn't beat every team 5-0 (cuz there was quite a bit of criticism after 4-0 besting of the Pigeons last week), there will always be those people that just find something to gripe about.

    Chicago is a bad team and TFC should have won this game esp at home. But you won't win every game.

    And seriously, did someone criticise Pozo after 2 games?

    Shoulda won. Defence has issues. Good first half followed by a pedestrian second.

    Jozy scores against anybody but Schweinsteiger - guile is very useful at the back.

    Not sure about the complaining about the perfect start, did not see it, and I was / am happy with the team BUT, i'll be honest, bit disappointed with today , your 3rd paragraph said it best, we should have won this game, that team is shit. Disappointing is all.
