Match Recap: CREW 2, TFC 3

TFC scored a late winner in their match against the Crew on Saturday.  Here's a quick recap of the game.

Gilberto helping Toronto toward historic season

Reds forward and DP Gilberto seems to have found his scoring touch in recent games, but in my opinion, it is too early to say he is out of a rut just yet.  He has found the back of the net in 3 out of 4 matches, but that doesn't mean he's leading this team.  Gilberto is a very good forward option for the team, and i'm very glad he has now found his touch, but it too early to say he's worth the money the team spent on him.
