    I dunno. We have totally dominated every game and lost on set prices. That should be pretty easy to fix - raises a question about certain positions and also about coaching.

    Harsh but true comment from the commentator, Westberg hasn't had much to do except take the ball out of his net 3 times.

    Akinola also indicative that MLS is Back is not the real world.

    This does make the Poz penalty even more serious though. Arrogant.

    Doesn't matter how badly you outplay your opponent, if you let them get 3 goals on 3 chances you're probably not winning. Deserved loss.

    Jozy is a fantastic TFC player. But needs to deliver something this year.

    An embarrassment total embarrassment to a team that would have trouble competing in the CPL and giving up 3 goals , it’s time to say goodbye to Vanney. You don’t spend the money you they do to lose to a team on a shoestring budget and concede 3 times to them I’m sorry!

    There's been an issue with this team for years now about not taking the result seriously until there are no chances to keep playing. They seem to assume they can figure it out if there is still a chance.

    That's Bradley's mentality but I'm not sure it works. Not enough urgency

    Jozy is not worth the money he is being paid. The General is at another level than his replacement.

    I donít agree with the precise way you have put this - but do agree with the sentiment. They are over confident / arrogant / something. / if Beckham had pulled that penalty stunt, Ferguson would have benched him. Just saying.

    Well I donít know if I pin his on any one player or players as much as I think this team needs a swift kick in the ass.

    Piatti and Poz clearly trying to make up for last time out but otherwise not a ton of push from the guys on the field.

    I still donít know what our level is vs the rest of the league but I feel pretty damn confident in saying there should always be points in it against Vancouver. They start Russel Tiebert for god sakes.

    I've watched a couple of the last few games, and the mls is back tournament, I'm still not sure what the gameplan is? Seems like it's just poz and piatti passing the ball around outside the box, try to pass our way into the 6 yd box or sometimes we get a cross in to no one. No one driving into the box, no one in the box to cross to, no crosses in behind defenders to cause them problems. It's too slow passing it around so it's easy for the other team to shift accordingly.

    We were top of the division after 2 games against Vancouver and 1 vs montreal, points we should be winning, so I didn't think it truly represented our position vs the entire division.

    Good teams find ways to win. What does all the possession matter if we can't finish.

    we've seen it so many timea now. outplay a team completely but still be on the knife's edge when the game is on the line. Basically its the fact that we always have old, slow defense and barely ever have our 3 DPs on the pitch at the same moment. All the games are different, but over time that is the issue that affects the results.

    I said Jozy isnít earning his 6.5 million this year, is there something on page 2 showing he is earning it?

    Yep, there is no pace to make teams uncomfortable, they sit and absorb. Now we had two very good saves by Hasal and a post. Still doesn't excuse giving up 3.

    check page 2 my dude. stop being so lazy. you only have to move your thumb. wait. tell me you checked page 2. thats hilarious. you probably had to check it twice too. oh man. did you catch it? ok no seriously I'm kidding.

    but if you're going to quote a post where I'm talking about Akinola, and you're salty about Jozy then I don't feel terrible at sending you back in history for no reason.

    We have now gone 5 complete games without a goal from one of our strikers. This says it all.

    Seriously?
    Jozy is/was a fantastic TFC player today, this month, this year, last year?
    If so, TFC is a team composed from almost all fantastic players (though all the other fantastic players are making a lot less money than Jozy).

    In this system, Piatti & Oso are technically wide strikers in a 4-3-3.

    I look at the rest of the league and don't see us being able to control the ball as much as we do against the Impact & Caps. Henry doesn't seem to believe in defensive midfielders and Vancouver hasn't really got 1.

    Couple that with most teams having a decent playmaker now, & I'm not sold on us doing well against all but the worst teams.

    really? 2020:
    Akinola 5 goals
    Lareya 3 goals
    Pozuelo 3 goals
    Piatti 2 goals
    Others: 1 goal
