Waking the Red's midweek call for your questions

Another week, and another impressive road result sees Toronto FC push their points haul on this long opening road trip to a stunning eleven from seven matches, good enough to challenge the top of the Eastern table and prompting some to question whether they are the class of the conference, if not the league.

Riding a three-game unbeaten run, Toronto faces one more difficult journey, travelling the breadth of the continent to face Portland, before the long-awaited home opener finally comes about.

When the road trip begin, expectations were cautious. It's difficult to pronounce just how a team will take to the challenge, but given how results have panned out, fans and team alike have a right to crow; at least a little bit.

This year's roadie was made all the more difficult by the sheer quality of their opponents, a fact that does not get any easier upon return to BMO Field.

Dallas, perhaps the hottest team in the league, is the first foe. Followed by visits from Vancouver, New York City, and Columbus before ending the month of May with another trip to New Jersey to face the Red Bulls, a side who will hope to turn their weekend result into a run of form after a disastrously slow start.

And it will be with the transition to summer and the implications of the International calendar that Toronto's season will be made. Turning strong road performances into home form will be the key to the coming month, and if they can build a cushion before the departures begin, it bodes well for the season.
