Need to use GAM and TAM to find some scoring options this off season. Also need to find defensive depth since EPB is off to Manchester. Also maybe need to seek out some creativity in the central midfield as Benny can’t be depended on every game anymore. They’ll be able to achieve all of that I believe.

Team has no swag
Meh Gerso Blessing and Benny all have swag
Roger and Benny have some swag but tbh their balls have more sag than swag these days

I'm not a huge D-Rube fan. Thoughts?

Better than Dwyer was this season. Is he good enough to be the number nine on an MLS Cup winning team? Probably not.

I'm done grieving. I can't believe I let this team do this to me, I said it was going to happen. I spent the entire match waiting for it to happen, I still allowed them to let me down.

This was peak 2017 SKC. Amazing defense, indecisive forwards, disallowed goal, Rubio flopping all over the turf, even a saved penalty. Honestly, I would have rather missed the playoffs than have gone through the same damn thing for the fourth year in a row.

I keep hearing people mention that he's had more goals than Dwyer since the trade, SO THE HELL WHAT???

Don gave this team bite. He held the ball up. Although Diego did hold it up nicely once last night, first time all season btw, he literally gives this team nothing unique that any other MLS striker wouldn't.

I'm not saying that they shouldn't have done the trade, but Diego definitely didn't work out and it is undeniable that this team would more likely have been benefited more than hurt if the trade wasn't made. Dom was a finisher, he could put the team on his back, none of the five rotating players we had up top had that capability. We know Dom can do it because he did it just last season.

Gerso does a great job getting behind the defense and doing nothing with it.  I used to like him a lot more than I do now.

My solace this year is that they largely deserved to lose.  Was frustrating watching officials blow games in the past.

Agree with Scott's changes and the swag comment.  Needed someone to light a fire and nobody had it last night.  Needed more creativity than firing a lot of those shots from outside the box.

meh, maybe, i still fully believe that was an amazing piece of business and would make that sale all over again even seeing how this went.

No, I agree with that, I still think they should have done the deal. But in no circumstance would I take Diego Rubio before Dom. Dom is better in literally every way.

It's that time of year where I have to be relearn this junk to know what to root for in order to get the soccer line imprints off the Seahawks field and the scarves and kilts off these skreets.

Amazing to see Toronto's stars self destruct and essentially lose a leg before game week.

Both of Giovinco's yellows were crap. I'm not sure what's going on with Jozy, all of a sudden he's gone full Dempsey heel. I'd love to know what happened in that tunnel.

Anyway I think TFC are still heavy favorites, I don't see Columbus doing to Toronto what they did to NYCFC.

I don’t know. I still don’t like MLS owner owning USL franchises. I know that how MLS rules are set up it is basically a necessity, but I just think the whole thing is messy. I know that has nothing to do with your question but just thought I’d throw it out there.
