At this point, it is just a relief that this season is over. There was nothing, absolutely nothing, which went right for Toronto after a 3-2 win over the Portland Timbers that appeared to have save their season. Tonight's season ending match against the New England Revolution was par for the recent course: a 1-0 loss that lacked completely in talking points.
The only goal of the match was incredibly controversial, or would have been if it mattered whatsoever for Toronto. The goal, clearly offside, might have been the worst Toronto suffered all year. It resulted in a goal for Lee Nguyen, who has quickly become a TFC killer... so basically he's an average MLS player. Bobby Shuttleworth had the clean sheet.
