Toronto FC vs. New York Red Bulls: 3 takeaways

Once again on Saturday, TFC showed they are completely incapable of fighting back after taking the first punch.

Toronto FC vs. New York Red Bulls: 3 takeaways

Toronto FC remains on course to record its worst ever MLS campaign following Saturday's 3-0 loss away to the New York Red Bulls. 

Losers of six straight, TFC (4-19-10, 22 points) can establish new franchise records for fewest wins and points in a single season if they fail to pick up a victory in their finale at home vs. Orlando City on Oct. 21. In 2012, the Reds went 5-21-8 and collected just 23 points. 

Incredibly, Toronto has won just one of its last 20 games (1-16-3) in all competitions. TFC finished as the only team in MLS this season without a single road win, with their previous victory away from BMO Field coming in a 2-0 decision over Charlotte FC on Aug. 28, 2022.  

"Obviously at this point with so many losses, we can't hide from anything, but we've come to a point where everything that can go wrong, goes wrong, and even when we might be deserving, [like] today, maybe to go to halftime tied, every little mistake, we get punished. So yeah, I think it's been quite the story for the past three months," midfielder Alonso Coello said after the loss. 

Here are my three major takeaways from Saturday's match.
