  • Toronto FC 0, New York Red Bulls 3 (Barlow 45’; Luquinhas 48’; 65’)  
  • TFC are winless in 21 consecutive games away from BMO Field
  • Dunfield finished his tenure with 1-14-0 record in all competitions

There’s no debate: Toronto FC is the worst team in MLS in 2023. 

TFC officially clinched last place in the overall league table for this season and extended their losing streak to six consecutive matches following a hapless 3-0 defeat away to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. 

It was a decent first half performance from the TFC at Red Bull Arena as they bravely defended and showed glimpses of attacking spirit on the counter. But they conceded a soft goal right before halftime after a mistake by captain Michael Bradley and completely fell apart in the second half.  

The bad news for TFC is that things can actually get worse for them. With one match left in the campaign, Toronto (4-19-10, 22 points) remains on course to establish new franchise records for fewest wins and points in a single season – in 2012, the Reds went 5-21-8 and collected just 23 points. TFC have won just one of their last 20 games (1-16-3) in all competitions.
