Rate the Reds: Giovinco the best of another tough night

Seba wins his fifth man of the match in a row.

Toronto FC lost a frustrating contest 2-1 to the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, and none of their players came off looking particularly fantastic. The defence was sloppy, none of the substitutes made a serious impact, and the finishing up front was well below its usual standard.

Sebastian Giovinco is, for I think the fifth time in a row, your man of the match. He took 10 shots and assisted Jonathan Osorio’s first-half goal. Oso also got a good rating for his finishing ability, as did Victor Vazquez (perhaps more for how pronounced his absence was after he left the game with injury).

Michael Bradley comes in joint-last, as it became more apparent than ever that 1. he is not a centre-back, and 2. the midfield misses him dearly. Ryan Telfer is level with Bradley on -54 after he was thrust into a very difficult spot to replace Vazquez.

This extends Seba’s lead at the top of the cumulative Rate the Reds leaderboard. Check out the full, updated standings right here.
