Sounders forward could certainly be better, but the blaming is starting to get out of hand.

The Philadelphia Union entered Toronto with a pipe dream of breaking Toronto FC's season-long home unbeaten streak or at least a slightly more realistic dream of leaving BMO Field with a singular point. Unfortunately, both of those dreams were smashed early and stomped on for the duration of the match as the Union left the pitch victims of a dispiriting 3-0 defeat to Toronto FC.
