Chelsea rolling, TFC trolling

Wile Carlo's Chelsea is showing rest of the league how it's done with another 6 goal performance, Preki's Toronto FC can't buy a win on the road.
Sure, we can blame shady ref or diving bastards from Panama. We can blame plastic pitch, lack of supporters or the fact that it was Tuesday it won't change a thing. CONCACAF is a joke.

To those whom somehow managed to watch TFC's game till the end, MLSE should be sending free tickets to the upcoming CCL matches. It was as painful as watching Ovrebo's 'refereeing' against team that shall not be named.

Preki should be questioned about whole team motivation and squad selection. Having 2 reds didn't help and some would argue that he was right to field bunch of kids instead of first team. With Mista supposedly lacking game form, what's better way to regaining in other than playing?

Where do we go from here? In regards to Chelsea, it's Stoke at the Bridge. Quite a few expecting another 6 goal performance. I'd ask them to get off their high horse and be a bit more realistic. Anything above 2 goals is a huge bonus, don't get greedy!

TFC... well, it's a date with Real Salt Lake. Surely we won't loose 3 games in a roll...

Few thoughts on todays "performance"...

While we had a few chances early in the game, where I felt, referee deserted us on couple of occasions, we couldn't recover from a goal.
Once again, we've looked uninspired, one dimensional and tired on the road. Bulls of Red were pressing the ball as soon as TFC player would touch it. Lack of creativity and cohesion, turned to be annoying habit of giving ball away to the opposition by the Toronto players. At times, we've even passed to the imaginary winger... only if you could see him, running as hard as he can, sweating...
Constant giveaways and what seem to be low self esteem were true nemesis tonight. Not energy drinker, DP's.
What is a dismal display of an offensive power by TFC tonight, speaks volumes for Preki's offensive "coordination".

Carlo cleaning out the house

It's been a while since my last post. At times I am unsure that I'll continue "writing here", will see.... World Cup ended and there was welcome break of no footy each Saturday. This however has been replaced with Toronto FC games. Once I've discovered U-Sector, I've never looked back. Been to every game but one and plan to attend as many games as possible in future. In any case, Carlo decided to clean the house. Riccy, Ballack, Deco, Belletti and Joey Cole are all gone. No need to go on repeating about what was said in papers for reasons and reactions. Life is life, let's move on.
Yossi comes this way as Liverpool found a nice way to fund Joe Coles expensive stay. Ramires is on the brink of signing with us, which would be quite welcome move. Mikel can't nor should be playing every single game. Also should mention that he's much younger than 'departed ones'.
Personally I'll miss Riccy the most, he's been fantastic workhorse and made JT look so much better. Hopefully Alex (whenever he is back from his injury) and Ivanovic will be able to deal whatever opposing teams will throw at them.
Community Shield game went in Manure's direction. It didn't surprise me and I was expecting 1-3 scoreline. 4 losses in 4 games for Chelsea in pre-season friendlies... alarming sign or a smoke screen? Time will show.
