No killer instinct from TFC

Seems like Tobias has an annoying brother. Not scoring on 4 decent chances is just as bad a late game failure as letting goals in.

My latest article for Sportsnet, looking at how the last couple of games have exposed just how far TFC still have to go. Good defence, sure but let's hope Koevermans can regain his full sharpness soon as right now we just don't have the quality to keep going with the 2 dm's and create enough chances to score.


Also, the late game woes continue, it's not in any way down to luck that TFC have missed good chances at the end of these last two games. Just like letting goals in at the other end, it's about a lack of the winning mentality, killer instinct, call it what you will it's just as much a product of skill, experience and guts as anything else is, and it might well be the biggest challenge for Ryan Nelsen in his attempts to make TFC competitive.
