It's the beginning of August, the birds are still chirping, the sun is still shinning, and the weather, of late has been kind of chilly, so maybe this Daily Red will keep your summer going and warm you up a little.
TFC right midfielder Dominic "Freakyfast8" Oduro says that the team looks great and that everyone still needs to gain chemistry with each other. Oduro isn't calling out his teammates after a tough month of July, but says that TFC has changed since he used to play them.
