Well, the Crew looks better offensively with Schelotto (boy, does he ever live up to the South American stereotype of going down easy and complaining to the ref, though!) and Moreno in the lineup. They’ve shown they can actually score some goals, which is an improvement over last season, but they can’t score goals to put a game away to save their lives. Good start to the game last night, weak second half, another draw at home when they could have had three points.
Good crowd last night, good atmosphere, helped along by the busload of Toronto fans who filled most of a section and sang throughout the whole game.
Herron scored again in the first half, but immediately after his second goal, he left with an injury, so no chance of the hat trick. I’ve never been at an MLS game where someone scored a hat trick. Is it customary to throw your hat on the field as in hockey? Because if so, I’m not going to wear my free, yet difficult to replace Newcastle United ballcap again, just in case.
ETA: I see from the sudden spike in hits that I’ve been linked by a Toronto FC messageboard. Hello there.
