What's very telling is Winter still has a job today. His plan, his tactics and his player selection are not up to MLS standards, which in itself is absolutely incredible. They're now playing not to lose, which means they're not trying to win!

And to top it off, Winter and Mariner are at odds with one another. The clock's got to be ticking, who goes first, Mariner or Winter?

I'd sack Winter and let Mariner take over, salvage the season - he knows the MLS very well and is well connected.

I'm just guessing, but I think the delay in action is a result of Anselmi waiting for Klinsmann to return his phone calls.

Anselmi remains clueless, he'll be promoted to replace Peddie, MLSE thrives on the Peter Principle.

And if this is how it remains with TFC, there's absolutely no way I renew my 4 seats. There's no way I'm going to continue to support substandard football - it's gouging at it's worst.

Is this TFC's first lead of the season (not including champions league)?

Great result for TFC, could very well save Winter's job if they can keep the momentum.

TFC played a pretty good game, but Montreal's defending and finishing were horrid. Ricketts made some great saves in the end to not make it a blowout though

Man City and Glasgow Celtic in one season! Must be a dream. Put some positives in this thread. Current team will never get the glory.

I cant blame you if you dont renew. TFC had all the momentum coming into the league & the organization has done everything to completely erode it & put the franchise in a bad situation moving forward.

Its really unbelievable that Winter hasnt been sacked yet. He looks like a guy that is completely out of his depth & he has been unable to get the team to successfully employ his style of game in the MLS.

Promoting Jimmy Brennan to assistant coach isn't going to change things any sooner either. And he certainly isn't qualified to take over for Winter when he is eventually booted.

The club is fully directionless.... just shocking ....

Toronto FC -- worst team in MLS
Toronto Maple Leafs -- worst team in NHL
Toronto Raptors -- worst team in NBA

What's wrong with our city?

If De Rosario played as well for Canada as he does for his various MLS teams we'd be in the World Cup.

Awesome playmaker

After today's Champions League final, the first (and likely only) time this can be said: At least we aren't Bayern Munich.

Well if the Leafs and Raptors are infact the worst team in their respective sports - and you're not making a gross exaggeration - at least there's the 1st overall pick to look forward to.


Oh wait...

There's nothing wrong with the city, ownership is the biggest problem, MLSE. They hire the wrong people to run their pro teams.

Not confident that the Bell/Rogers partnership will facilitate a change in fortune for any of the pro teams either.

Agreed. Corperate ownerships have ruined sports in this city.

I wonder what the winning % of these 3 franchises has been say over the past 3 years?

MLSE is starting to look like the most incompetant sports ownership in sports.

3 different pro sports teams that are all at the bottom of its leagues.

And toronto wins... wow.

haha.. that's crazy. can't win in the MLS two hoots, but seem to win all these CONCAAF matches and stuff.

Whitecaps are the only Vancouver team I cheer for, since i didn't get connected to TFC before I moved out west.

Awful officiating, but what a way to manage a win.

Canadian Champions.

TFC proving once again why they're the best team in Canada, if not one of the top non-Mexican sides in North America.

How can this team do so well on the international stage, yet completely **** the bed in league play?

I have no idea but I'll take it. At least we'll get something out of this pathetic season. Looking forward to Champions League play again

Does anyone want to get a team together and enter it into the Canadian championship next year? I think HF might have a chance.

If the Canadian championship was as cool as the US Open Cup, we could actually do that.
