not surprised at this result this team regularly gives up leads in the last 5 minutes of play.

The central defense was visibly weak today. I love Eckersley as a right back, but he looked brutal in the middle today. He's not a good defender of crosses. That's this team's #1 problem, central defense. Its a tough one to give up the W, but they were heavily outplayed.

I'm just shocked at the level of soccer. I thought it would be better.
what did you expect? the MLS is comparable to the third tier leagues or lower in Europe

I had no clue what they had been doing all season so I looked up the standings and I then saw most of the game and by the end of it, I was still

Still, there are alot of other teams in the MLS that are better moving the ball. This TFC team is the worst team in the league for a reason.

As far as last nights game goes, poor defending yet again. You could spot this team 5 goals & they would probably blow the lead.

Get real. There isn't a 2nd division that's better than the MLS. By no means is the MLS as good as any of the major Euro leagues, but it constantly gets disrespected from pundits like yourself, who always point to the bad. Watch the top teams play, and you will see how good the MLS can be. The biggest difference between the MLS and Europe is the parity in the MLS, in Europe the gap is ENORMOUS between the best to middle to worst in the league.

bingo, MLS is growing as a league as a whole and the talent level has drastically increased.

Second division portugal, npower championship, serie B, it goes on and on. Any team in any of those leagues would smash tfc. Simple as that, TFC is a joke.

Spend the big money and bring in Kaka, bit of an injury prone player, but immense quality and he wants to play in the mls.

well, we will just have to see when this comes around. http://m.mlssoccer.com/wfc/2012/schedule
I for one think we will lose to Liverpool, but i agree that other teams can compete.

Chelsea vs PSG could be a star studded affair with the transfer rumors surrounding PSG

Yeah, was really dissapointed (not saying I expected them to win), but a TFC win would be nice (but unlikely)!

MDV probably gets 3 goals, TFC lose 3-2.

agreed, I didn't realize this was his first match. Also, while Frings' shot was a rocket, that was brutal goaltending by Ricketts. Reflexes of an old man, lol!

Great effort tonight by TFC. Complete performance. This team is not as bad as their record indicates, and you can see it tonight. Finally some luck goes their way.

Portugal played good. I wanted to see a Portugal Italy final and start some Riots win or lose.
