Toronto FC head coach John Carver didn't mince his words after their opening home fixture loss 2-0 to Seattle Sounders. "I'll apologize to the fans because they've not seen us for five months and that's a disappointing show in your first home game of the season," Carver said. "There was an awful lot of hype coming into the game ... and it just didn't work out.

"We weren't right. We looked a yard slow, we didn't win any second balls, we didn't compete ... all in all, it's a hugely disappointing game and result."
