We will keep doing this until we get it right TFC 1 Philly 1

More cheer than those skies would indicate

Toronto FC allowed a late equalizer again at BMO Field Saturday evening. When does predictable go beyond predictable and into unavoidable curse? 
I would argue that the game slipped away from Toronto in the first half when they were unable to turn extended offensive pressure into goals and then Doneil Henry was red carded (second yellow).
It was a long time to be down a man. TFC threw out a glimmer of hope by taking the lead. Jeremy Brockie pursued a through ball down the right and crossed it perfectly. Jonathan Osorio showed skill and beat his defender to head the ball past the keeper. It is already a candidate for the 2013 TFC goals highlight reel...

Toronto keeps on showing they are not a strong enough team to hold a late lead. I am not sure that Danny K for Brockie was the best choice for a late substitution.

Matias Laba looked more confident today, both in defending and on the ball. Jonathan Osorio starting ahead of Reggie Lambe was an overdue move.

Now two road games, at DC and then Houston, followed by a tough home game against Salt Lake. If goals start happening, will victories be far behind?
