TORONTO – When will the misery end?

That’s the question long-suffering Toronto FC fans must be asking themselves after TFC suffered another loss on Sunday, this time a 3-2 defeat to bitter rivals CF Montreal at BMO Field in the latest installment of the Canadian Classique.

The final score wasn't reflective of the overall balance of play as Montreal outplayed Toronto (3-12-10), who has now gone 12 games without a win (0-9-3) in all competitions and has lost a franchise-record nine times in a row. The Reds have also suffered seven straight losses since interim coach Terry Dunfield replaced Bob Bradley on June 26.

Before Sunday, TFC hadn’t scored since a 2-1 road loss to the New England Revolution on June 24, which was Bradley’s last game in charge. Overall, the Reds have been shut out seven times in their previous nine outings and been outscored 21-3 in that run. TFC’s previous victory came in a 2-1 home decision over D.C. United on May 27.
