A loss, but positive signs
TORONTO, ON — The Kevin Payne and Ryan Nelsen era kicked off this past weekend, and the result was what most people would have predicted going in, a loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps.
It was to be expected given the way pre-season unfolded, with a host of players added only in the last few days before the game.
What most were hoping to get out of the match were some positive signs, whether from individual players or from the team as a whole, something to suggest that TFC does at least have something to build upon. Happily there were actually quite a few.
