Toronto FC endured a week from hell. After Federico Bernardeschi called out head coach Bob Bradley, the snowball effect began. The Athletic reported that Toronto FC is, essentially, a broken club, one whose culture has deteriorated due to Bob Bradley's alleged favoritism, Lorenzo Insigne's injuries, Michael Bradley's uncomfortable role, Bill Manning's transfer market missteps and Bernardeschi's general complaining.
Fights over Drake jacket collaborations, vaping on airplanes, Media Day jealousy... this drama is about as MLS as it gets. Yet, because this is MLS, Toronto FC not only survived their week from hell but actually won a game at the end of it. Funny little league, isn't it?
Toronto FC's fall and subsequent rise was the story of the week, but not the only story of the week. Another faltering power, the LA Galaxy, had no such luck on the other side of the country as their chaos continued while fans demand more.
It's not all doom and gloom, though. It was a fantastic week for young stars, both at home and abroad, with several up-and-comers making major statements with big goals to help headline this weekend's winners and losers.
