It's not old school MLS man. Gulf in quality between us and a full strength Toronto is pretty massive. They dropped 4 on us with more than a few backups in their squad.
We had quite a few backups start too, veeon, Etienne, zizzo, lade and while they scored 4 they didn't dominate us as you suggest they did. The gulf in quality is there but that's on paper, on the field no team is dominating so much that they're a lock to win it all as is the case in most leagues. This is still mls, anyone can and does win. Think anyone had Minnesota beating Atlanta in Atlanta this weekend? No, but they did and on paper Atlanta would beat the Minnesota squad 9 out of 10.
We're not that fucking bad to be afraid of another mls team, we're just incompetent from ownership to the fo to the coaching. Our players can hang with Toronto if prepared well tactically and mentally, which they rarely are.
