Crew 2 TFC 0 Time to take it home and stay awhile.....

It was hard to gather any positives from this matchup in Columbus today. Toronto went into this game trailing the Columbus Crew by three points in the standings and needed a victory to eliminate this gap. Toronto looked flat and disconnected throughout the game. There was some individual effort, but TFC did not look like a cohesive unit. The defending needed help as the Crew was able to get in behind them a couple of times in the first half. It didn't get better in the second . The attack seldom threatened or was able to sustain pressure until late in the game when Columbus was happy to sit back and defend.
Perhaps it was due to the personal toll of watching two U20 games in the lakeside sunshine today (U20 report to follow tomorrow) but this was a dull contest. It didn't help that the Crew's Argentinian veteran (Guillermo Barros Schelotto) provided both goals. I was tired of seeing Argentinians score, I guess.

There there, it wasn't all bad. We got to see how bad Samuels can really be and gauge how far Lombardo is from contributing to the squad.

Without Cunningham/Dichio in there we have almost no shot of scoring goals.

Arsenalist, how was the holiday ! It must have been wonderful as it has you in a most cheery mood. You think it is a good thing to discover our lack of offensive depth ??
