TORONTO - A season that started with such promise for Toronto FC wraps up Saturday with a whimper rather than a bang. Toronto (11-14-8) visits playoff-bound New England (16-13-4) with nothing of meaning on the line. You can catch the action live on TSN2 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. With Houston losing 2-1 in Chicago on Friday nght, Toronto can finish no lower than seventh in the Eastern Conference. Sixth place is possible depending on results in New England and Columbus, which hosts Philadelphia. The Union hold a one-point edge over Toronto going into play Saturday. Toronto is also looking to add to the franchise single-season records it has already set in 2014: most wins (11) and points (41). Either way, it hardly makes for a cliffhanger. And despite the franchise marks, the season can be seen only as a another in a long line of disappointments. Ownership spent buckets of money and made promises it couldnt keep after finishing ninth in 2013 with a 6-17-11 record. Good people lost their jobs. Toronto enters the 2014 season finale winless in four (1-3-0), a stretch that has seen it outscored 8-2. It is 2-7-3 over its last 12 games with coach Greg Vanneys record at the helm 2-5-2 since taking over from Ryan Nelsen (who went 9-9-6 before getting the axe). For me its a character game, Vanney said of Saturdays finale. In the grand scheme of things, theres nothing for us to play for. But if youre a true competitor and a winner, then youre going to go out on the field and were going to find a way to get a result and were going to play together. Vanney says its also another chance for the team to wrap our heads around the style of play and things we want to do moving forward. We dont want to just waste this last game, he added. Its still an opportunity. I still think theres some opportunity for guys to step in and show a little bit of something as well, because decisions will have to be made at the end of the year. But by and large we have a good sense of what that is. I dont think anyone is necessarily playing for their job but I think guys can make good cases for themselves this weekend. Its a far cry from the beginning of the season when star striker Jermain Defoe scored twice in a 2-1 win in Seattle that drew a TSN audience of 299,000. The next weekend, the home opener against D.C. United drew a TSN audience of 342,000 — the most watched MLS game ever on English television in Canada. Fast forward to Oct. 11 and Toronto at New York drew an average audience of 53,000, which bumped up to 107,000 for the 1-1 tie with Montreal last Saturday that eliminated TFC from playoff contention. Overall, TFC games on TSN have averaged 136,000 viewers this year — an increase of 33 per cent from last year. Average audience for games on Sportsnet, which had second pick of the games behind TSN, was 48,000. The Sportsnet broadcast of the Chivas USA game at Toronto, its most recent broadcast, drew an average audience of 28,000, down 51 per cent from the networks first game of the season (at Columbus) in April. New England, meanwhile, will finish second in the East no matter what happens the final weekend of the regular season. It will be watching the results to see whether it will play Sporting Kansas City, Columbus Crew or New York Red Bulls in the playoffs. The Revolution are unbeaten in their last four matches and have lost once in their last 11 matches (8-1-2) since mid-August. New England has won five straight at home and has not lost at Gillette Stadium in seven games (6-0-1) since a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Columbus on July 26. We want to take momentum into the playoffs if we can, Revs defender A.J. Soares told reporters this week. We know theres no consequence of the game but it doesnt really matter. Its all about us and looking forward, and we know if we have a good performance here, thatll carry to the next week. New England has been off since Oct. 16 when it rallied for a 2-1 road win over Houston. Toronto will face the Revolution without Defoe (groin) and suspended Canadian midfielders Jonathan Osorio and Dwayne De Rosario. Centre back Nick Hagglund (hamstring) is also ailing. Star midfielder Michael Bradley is expected to play despite missing several practices this week due to an ongoing nerve-related foot issue which necessitated a minor procedure earlier in the season. Its something he could manage and deal with but it is highly annoying and painful at times, said Vanney. The plan is for Bradley to seek a more permanent solution during the off-season.
