Another performance that has Toronto FC’s dressing room feeling like it’s on the cusp of making this run something that supporters — and the league — will look back on decades from now when they talk about all-time great teams.
Coach Greg Vanney told the Toronto Sun last week the Reds have their sights set on the record books — and they just cleared a massive hurdle in the Windy City.
“When I came here and when I sat down with Micheal — then when Jozy (Altidore) came and Seba (Giovinco) came — every one of those guys said they wanted to be different,” Vanney told the Sun on Saturday night outside TFC’s dressing room.
Many still refer to last year’s Eastern Conference championship — a 7-5 aggregate win for the Reds — as one of the best playoff series in MLS history.
Likewise, if Montreal surprises with multiple results of its own, Toronto FC’s chance at matching or breaking the Galaxy’s all-time record will take a considerable hit.
