19,000 tickets sold does not equate into bums in the seat.

Why would anyone actually pay to go see a crap team play?

oh oh
Kara is now hawking baseball for Rogers tv (she done communications at UCLA ya know) ...
the MLS record 0-7 start belongs to the 1999 Kansas City Wizards ...

TFC's #1 problem is coaching
i don't understand what he says ...
more important, the TFCs don't understand anything either...
he loses games cause he fumfs and mumbles ...

i as coach would not have this problem ...
i could at least equal his 0-5 start ...

I was in a sports restaurant yesterday and this game was the featured soccer game, next to the NHL playoffs. A few minutes in the patrons of the bar requested that they show something else and the Barca-Levante game was turned on instead.

This team has worn out it's welcome with the regular fans. Few really care anymore.

So ... on that note ... was the PK call awarded to Barca a good call?

I've noticed that with teams like Barca, RM and especially Man U in England, penalties always seem to be awarded when they are on the ropes giving them a lifeline and in most cases a cheap victory while their opponents can be mugged in the box and have their wallets and watches stolen but the refs just signal play on.

Saturday's game was another one of those examples....

19, what is there to say? Other than:

1. A lot of empty seats.
2. What a crap team.

Sitting in front of my tv...............both sides were poor. And that fact was reflected in the poor attendance.

The bloom is well and truly off the rose with this outfit.

Having said all that, they will probably now go on a run and make the playoffs. :)
