It’s insane how terrible this TFC team is. It really is.
To say this campaign has been difficult to endure, especially considering the woeful past two seasons and the unbridled excitement at the outset, is the understatement of the year. We bet big and lost big, but even that perfectly encapsulated statement doesn’t do the experience justice. Nobody expected THIS.
Absolutely everything went wrong. The wheels fell off the cart mid-motion and we just kept going, grinding the transmission until it too failed, and still kept on, trying to carry the pieces of this broken club up the mountain.
Gosh, I really, really hope this here is rock bottom. It has to be, right? Right?
Kobe Franklin is at times the only player on the pitch who looks like he wants to be there. Credit to the kid, he puts his head down and gets to work whilst everything around him burns. That’s the kind of player you want on your team… I didn’t break VV:

Uh, everything? This team doesn’t want to be here, and now that we’re properly eliminated from the playoffs, again, for the third year straight, they don’t have to be for much longer. Shame about the games still unplayed, though. That has to complicate holiday plans and golf bookings.
All three NYCFC goals. Wow. Could we at least, I dunno, try out there?… Another loss, another round of inane post-game platitudes from all involved, can we just not do pressers for a bit? Oh, and also, can we just forfeit the balance of the season?

There’s no love for the game on display, no love for the spirit of competition, no beauty in the beautiful game. It’s painful to watch:
