Can Toronto FC come back stronger from their bye week?

The defence clearly knows this one isn't coming to them. Is it time for Bendik to concentrate more on finding a red jersey than kicking it long? - USA TODAY Sports

Thank the footie gods for a bye week right now. 10 days off to regroup, get their heads straight, integrate the new players and hopefully come out stronger. My latest for Sportsnet looks at what TFC need to do better, and what changes might take place to enable that.

Also, over at Canadian Soccer News, James has the usual excellent MLS week in review. With 6 midweek games, there was plenty to talk about, lots of very good goals, impressive wins for the Canadian teams over the weekend and Houston finally loses at home. Catch up on it all here.
