    Looks like Columbus is winning MLS Cup again for the second time in 4 years - it’s good we let our 2017 architect go there and win 2 Cups in Columbus with way less money being spent on a roster - and kept Manning here to destroy our franchise with a huge payroll of underachievers - it’s amazing what happens when you build an actual team and play to the strengths of the members on that team - it’s like it makes sense or something…..weird, who knew?!

    I don't really care about the manufactured rivalry. Columbus is a very well built and coached team that's good to watch.

    The Crew crowd is so different from say 2009. Much more diverse and young.

    We don't have a have a football club.

    TFC is a carnival funhouse. "Hey look at some Italian makes some cross field passes", "Look at those supporters over there signing" Look at those flairs lets take a picture" "Lets watch Messi in person" "Coooool".

    We don't have sport clubs in Toronto. Just attractions. Nothing more.

    Columbus wins it. Great game.

    It is officially #SuperDraftSZN now though.

    Well-deserved win for the Crew.
    Third MLS Cup for Bez.

    Yeh, mid market spending team that plays a good game. Club moved on from the PreCourt nonsense.

    I'd much rather see them win then somebody like Vancouver.

    ( I find the salary charge for Rossi a little weird as they payed $8 million for him)


    Hoping people around the league go "OK, lets copy them" in terms of team tactics - much rather more teams play a style fans like to watch then something like Nashville.

    All hail King Bezbatchenko!

    Another proof Manning is a fraud.

    Congrats to Bez and the Crew. TFC chose the wrong person to give the reins of the organization.

    Edward Roger's specializes in employing fraudsters. See Shapiro, Atkins, Shanahan.

    Delighted for Bez, hell of an achievement especially with Zelarayan leaving. It's depressing as hell to see the heights he brought us too and now him doing the same thing elsewhere while we are the worst run team in the league, but how and however

    Thought they were the best team by far for most of it, and Nancy obviously continues to seriously impress me

    Paywalled of course but really interesting article from within the officials team at the final game.
