Pachuca wins on penalty kicks after 1-1 game






It would have been nice to be there, but .....following the game on MLS Match Tracker and then discovering that Larry Millson was live blogging on the Globe (until the 65th minute ????) was all this fan could do. I am a huge fan of Larry Millson, best soccer reporter in these parts.
Julius James scored the TFC goal in the game.
Jeff Cunningham missed his penalty kick, please make this guy toast. Brennan and Harmse were the other Toronto players who did not score in penalty kicks (did anyone accomplish the John Terry slip ???)
Tyler Hemmings, Kevin Harmse, Tyler Rosenlund, Abdus Ibrahum, Nana Attakora were all starters. Robert, Ricketts, Brennan were among the few regulars who started.
Sutton played the first half and Edwards had the second.
There are reports that Andrea Lombardo was released.
Nothing new on the Dickov and Huckerby pursuit .....

I would gladly trade this loss tonight for a resounding victory in Vancouver this Wed.


Until then ...

Shame so many regulars missed what is obviously a very important match. Too busy catching trout myself. Though I'm sorry I missed the first penalties in TFC history.

I was thinking a loan deal for Lombardo would be good, oh well.
Nice to hear that other parts of the TFC future look bright.

Also, I see I'm almost 300 points up again. Oh well.

Harmse PK was in! check it out on youtube-would it have made a difference? oh well, life goes on-
