Where we left off last year

2023 season: 22 points, 15th in the Eastern Conference

It’s nearly impossible to imagine how last year could’ve gone any worse for Toronto FC.

Collecting the Wooden Spoon as the worst team in all of MLS? Check. Locker room fractures? Check. One Italian “star” yelling at fans while the other sows chaos in the locker room? Check. Those two “stars” combining for just nine goals? Check. Coach Bob Bradley getting fired 19 months into his tenure? Check. Even outside of all of those issues, none of the high-salary veterans who signed last offseason hit and none of the youngsters really took a step forward.

With the walls crumbling, who can blame them?
