If there is one thing that has become abundantly clear about Toronto FC early on in the 2022 MLS season it’s that the team remains a work in progress under new coach Bob Bradley.
With three games in the books, TFC are still searching for their first win after suffering a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to the Columbus Crew on Saturday, a game that saw the Reds enjoy the lead for the first time this year. The loss in Ohio was a microcosm of Toronto’s laboured start to the campaign thus far: A strong start out of the gate, solid stretches of play at times, defensive miscues, and the team fading down the stretch.
Toronto’s 0-2-1 record mirrors the start to last year when the club didn’t earn its first win under former coach Chris Armas until the fourth match. But even with the lack of results, there is far more optimism about the Reds’ future under Bradley than there was 12 months ago with Armas at the helm.
