A Lot of Chaos For Toronto FC
Aside from firing Bradley and hiring Herdman, Toronto has other issues to deal with.
The club has one outright win since June. That’s one win and two ties in 14 matches — the most recent being a 2-1 loss to Vancouver over the weekend.
Toronto has managed just 24 goals while surrendering 41 — that’s a goal differential of minus-17 if you are scoring at home.
It’s second-worst behind even more hapless Colorado Rapids and their minus-22 goal differential.
But, while Toronto FC has virtually zero shot at making the MLS Cup playoffs, Inter Miami does. Toronto is 13 points back of D.C. United for the ninth and final playoff spot while the Herons are just seven points back with two games in hand.
If Inter Miami’s defense and supporting cast around Messi don’t perform, it could be the death knell in the coffin for the Herons.
Roll on, La Familia, roll on.
