Social Media is a tool that can be used for many things; Networking, comedy, sadness. Many use it as a tool to vent out good and bad emotions. It was used for the latter Sunday night after Columbus Crew SC suffered the team’s second loss of the season to Toronto FC, 3-1, narrowing the gap on the Black & Gold in the Supporters’ Shield race to two points.
Crew fans voiced their displeasure and thoughts on the game, and also on the broadcast.
This is the quality of Crew video feed we’re all used to, don’t lie.— Morgan Hughes (@Morgan_Hughes) September 28, 2020
The second half of the match was — well, you all know — not great, to say the least, for the Crew. It seemed for a good portion of the second 45 minutes, Columbus was on the defensive end of a threatening Toronto attack.
I guess never having possession isn’t helpful in advancing the ball out of your defensive half. ♂️— Thomas Costello (@1ThomasCostello) September 28, 2020
This has not been a good half hour of soccering. #Crew96— Steve Sirk (@stevesirk) September 28, 2020
Columbus is definitely missing midfielder Darlington Nagbe in the lineup. The Lakewood, Ohio native is battling an injury, but could have been the difference maker if healthy.
1 game, calm down. We do need nagbe back though.— JRAMforALMVP (@DogeMemeTwo2) September 28, 2020
#Crew96 is really missing Darlington Nagbe in this game. It was bound to happen at some point. He brings so much control to the midfield that hasn’t been there much during this game.— Patrick Murphy (@_Pat_Murphy) September 28, 2020
As for the game itself, it’s disappointing to see your team lose, but to a rival, it’s even more painful. It was going to happen sooner or later, due to the team playing three games in 10 days. Weary legs, fatigue from traveling in and out of the state really takes a toll once you add up all the hours of practice and training, on top of hours of sleep they rarely get.

Columbus’ only other loss came to New York City FC 1-0. Tight game, but it was Toronto that ripped apart Crew SC.
It took until almost October for the Crew to get slaughtered for the first time in 2020. #SunshineBrigade— Morgan Hughes (@Morgan_Hughes) September 28, 2020
On a more positive note, midfielder Artur made his 100th regular season appearance in a Crew uniform.

Here’s hoping Columbus can turn things around against FC Dallas next Saturday.
