Momentous trades, blockbuster deals and unparalleled interest.

Things were going too well for Toronto FC this off-season.

As a result, it was and it wasn’t a surprise when supporters learned of Bright Dike’s season-ending Achilles injury last week.

It took TFC fans back to a time when a dark cloud always seemed to build over BMO Field.

As a result, Dike’s salary will continue to count against the club’s cap this season, but the Reds will receive an extra roster spot as a result of the Nigerian’s absence — one they could use to bring in another player up top if the right fit comes along.

“We’re always looking to improve our squad,” TFC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko told the Toronto Sun this week. “If that means bringing in players, as you’ve seen this year, we have a mission to make the playoffs and win Cups.
