Topic: Toronto FC
Canadian Champions, Supporters Shield Winners, and now MLS Cup winners. Toronto won everything they could win this year, and broke multiple league records in doing so. If they aren’t the best ever, we’re into the deeply subjective realm of style points to say that they’re not.
Even the scrappy periods of the playoff wins were a perverse kind of tribute to how good they are. None of their opponents could hope to impose themselves on Toronto, they could only hope to live with them or stop them, with intermittent but ultimately futile success.
It may be too that Toronto has not been quite so sparkling since the last month of the regular season, as the various finish lines drew near. But they were so far ahead for so long, that some dip was perhaps inevitable. And when it mattered most they were back to their best to secure their legacy. The best ever? For now.
