It's still way too early to describe Toronto FC as resurgent, or having turned a corner.
But there's no question that TFC are trending in the right direction at the moment with back-to-wins, including a 2-1 decision at home over Atlanta United FC on Saturday. That victory came on the heels of the Reds' 4-0 destruction of CF Montreal in the Canadian Championship semifinals in midweek.
Still, Bob Bradley pumped the brakes when asked about the team's current form after the win against Atlanta.
"I still see things that need a lot of work. I think we're improving... but I still see so many little things that I want to see improve. The pluses are great, the players know that, they feel good about that," Bradley offered.
"[But] we're not Barcelona yet, that's for sure."
Here are my three major takeaways from the match.
