Coach Nick DasovicOn a great start and the game plan: "It's funny because we talk about tactically setting up the team to what we want to achieve against who we're playing. We've had relatively the same lineup and tactical set up over the last few weeks because we've played so many games. I thought we came out and let them have the ball. We did get a good ball to De-Ro [Dwayne De Rosario] and had a few tap chances. Then the old Achilles heel this year, or at least since we've taken over, set pieces - boom boom and you get down. That's the way it goes. Do you question their character? Some of the boys fought back still and tried. Chad [Barrett] scored a good goal at the end to make it close, but at the end of the day, I think everybody puts their hand up and says it wasn't good enough. That's the bottom line, it wasn't good enough."
On whether his players are hungry enough: "Well, the proof's in the pudding. When you watch a football game from the outside, you see a guy lose it and not track back - that's a character deficiency. To be fair, they tried. We've had a tough schedule. I'm not going to throw the boys under the bus ... now's not the time. We're going to keep working. I told the boys, no matter what happens or if we're eliminated, we're going to keep playing until October 23. First and foremost for the TFC badge. If you don't want to be here and fight, then you can make your way out. No problem we'll let you go and pursue other ventures. But if you want to be here, I only want guys who are going to fight for the football club."
Goalkeeper Stefan FreiOn starting well, then allowing three goals: "All of their goals were pretty soft. The first one I'll have to look at the replay but it seemed like a set play they were trying to create. You saw it coming, but organization and communication is what let us down there. The second one is probably something that's been haunting us this season ... set plays. Terrible marking. You don't have to ask a guy of that caliber to try to finish a wide-open header. The third one was obviously unfortunate. Adrian [Cann] knows he probably needed to clear that a little better. It's just very disappointing."
On the loss: "It's very demoralizing. We have to take a good look at ourselves, although our mentality should've been there from the get-go of the season. People are maybe going to have to look at themselves and worry about their jobs a little more now. That's what should've been there in January. I need to prove my worth and make sure I deserve to be here and the guys also have to show the front office and the coaches that they deserve to be here next year. With efforts like this, I don't think many of us deserve to be here."
Never miss a local story.
Midfielder Dwayne De RosarioOn giving up an early lead:) "Yeah, I think that sums up the season. I'm extremely disappointed."
On Sounders fans) "Seattle has great fan support. They came out to support their team today because they knew it was a big game, a game that they had to win, and it shows how much the city backs the team. I know it was a great environment out there. We have the same type of environment in Toronto. Obviously we don't have 30-some thousand seats to fit everyone, but the passion is there. They demand results and there's nothing wrong with that. We should demand results from each other, and that's not only in games, but in training and everything that we do."
