  1. Carleton will not make his first start as some experts had predicted (hoped) Gressell will start instead. Probably the correct move by Tata, but certainly not as fun.

  2. Well at least for the next two hours the Crew are on top of the MLS table. They look today to have the pieces to contend, didn’t miss Kamara and Meram today. Toronto unlucky to have not scored on a couple of occasions.

  3. MLS Live is free until ESPN+ starts up later this Spring. Just sign up for a username. Higuain with the first goal of the MLS season. A little against the run of play, but decent match so far given the poor field and windy weather and it being the season opener for Crew.
