TORONTO – Earlier in the week, after yet another flawed victory for his team, Randy Carlyle warned of how quickly the tide could change without improvement. It took two, maybe three games for the mood of an excitable market to shift, for that excitement to devolve into concern. We all get induced by winning, said Carlyle on Saturday morning. Were human beings. Winnings great and sometimes you let some certain things go. We dont want to hamper [our team] and come down hard on not playing well and winning, but the reality is we all know that you cant continue to play loose hockey and have success. His concerns continue to prove warranted. Increasingly sloppy and porous play has caught up to the Leafs in recent days, the club dropping its second straight in poor form on Saturday evening. The Flyers lit up the scoreboard with seven goals in a wild affair at the ACC. It was in many ways a culmination of whats been plaguing the group more and more in recent weeks. Stephane Robidas claimed that those troubles came down to details slipping, the desired structure of playing the right way trending in just the opposite direction. Its not like weve got to change the whole way we play, said Robidas after the 7-4 loss, stretching his arms out wide as he spoke as if to indicate that wholesale changes werent needed. We know how to play. We know we can play the right way. Weve done it. Weve proved it to ourselves. Its not like weve never done it. Reverting to the old and troubled formula of leaning too hard on their goalies with turnovers and porous defensive play, the Leafs have been bitten when that goaltending hasnt risen to a super level the past two nights. Carolina fired 36 shots at Jonathan Bernier on Thursday and scored four – the latter into an empty net. Philadelphia peppered Bernier with 41 more on Saturday, whistling seven past the 26-year-old before he was pulled mercifully for James Reimer in the third. Both of them have been outstanding for our team, Dion Phaneuf said of the goalies, but when we force them to have workloads like that its too much. We have to got to cut down our shots against. Toronto has been outshot 38-28 on average in the past eight games, yielding 34 on average this season. Only Berniers heroics previously and a scorching offence allowed success to last as long as it did under such circumstance, the Leafs winning 10 of 12 in a run that rivaled their flawed pre-Olympic burst last season. History proved then that terrific goaltending can stand up only for so long to lackadaisical defensive play before it eventually breaks. We left Bernie out to dry tonight, Peter Holland said, scoring his eighth goal in defeat. Hes been nothing but unbelievable for us for the last little bit. Its not fair to those guys and we need to be better for them. Saturday gradually evolved into an embarrassing night for the Leafs, one somewhat reminiscent of the teams blowout 9-2 loss to Nashville last month. The Leafs actually scored the first two and had another lead at 3-2, but squandered both leads with sloppy puck play, loose defensive coverage and little of the structure theyve been hoping to play with. Carlyle observed how difficult it was for his team to even execute a simple breakout pass. It was like the overall execution of the simplest things was a challenge for us after the 10-minute mark, he said. Tonight, the bottom line is that they played harder for the final 50 minutes, Phaneuf added. Theres no other breaking it down or any other words to describe it. Concluding their 22nd home game with a loss, the Leafs will play their next seven on the road, starting Sunday in Chicago against the fearsome Blackhawks. Five Points 1. 10 Minutes Pegged for two goals in a jumbled start two nights earlier, the Leafs actually came out with energy and engagement in the opening frame on Saturday. Morgan Rielly found Joffrey Lupul open in the slot for the games first goal, James van Riemsdyk adding another on the power-play 49 seconds later. But after R.J. Umberger beat Phaneuf to a rebound in front of Bernier the style of game loosened and the Flyers gradually took control. They seemed to just push the pace of the game and continued to play a harder game than we did, Phaneuf said. I think that we took our foot off the gas pedal after we scored early. We just didnt regain any traction the rest of the game. I think some games were not ready to start and then obviously tonight we did get off to a good start and then we just laid back a little bit, Holland added, thought it was going to come easy to us again. Saturday marked the first time all season that the Leafs have lost when scoring the first goal. They dropped to 14-1-0. 2. Defence Still leading the league in offence, the Leafs have nonetheless tumbled down the rankings in two basic and yet revealing defensive categories. The club now sits 24th overall in yielding 2.94 goals per game and 27th in surrendering 34.1 shots per game. Both stats mirror the groups porous finish last season. 3. Erratic Carlyle tried to calm the Jake Gardiner storm Saturday morning after calling his play erratic on Friday. Jake fits into the rest of our group, Carlyle said with evident frustration ahead of the game against Philadelphia. Weve been erratic, simple as that. Gardiner, however, wouldnt dispute the original assessment from his head coach before being scratched for the third time this season. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up, he said of his performance. Ive been good and bad. I just need to be more consistent. Beyond sitting him out (or exploring a trade) the Leafs really are limited in their options with the 24-year-old. Patience – as difficult as that may be given his struggles – and continued prodding may be their only real options. That was the approach last season when Gardiner struggled for two thirds of the year before emerging as the teams best defenceman during an ultimately ruinous stretch-run. Its what led the club to sign him up long-term and indicative of just how quickly these situations can change. 4. Tough Road Back David Booth has just a goal and two points in a quiet first month of action with the Leafs. Booth broke his foot late in training camp, missing the first 21 games of the season. Its a gap that can be difficult to make up, the competition – both internally and externally – racing ahead. Thats true, said Booth. Its really tough to step in there after missing so much. You want to get back as soon as you can and sometimes you just force getting back sooner. No matter when you come back – if you feel ready, if you dont – its going to take time to get in there and feel in game shape. You train all summer for that training camp, to get in shape there and then you get a whole month of working at it and then to have that taken away from you is really tough. But Ive done it before. You just learn from it. You learn theres no way around it other than just playing games. The 30-year-old, who signed for a year at $1.1 million, says the comeback was made especially difficult by the type of injury (foot) which limited conditioning work. Its everything, he said of the challenge. Every part of the game; your shot, your skating, mechanics, everything. Booth played 10 minutes against the Flyers, finishing with one shot and no points. 5. Shake-up Midway through Thursdays game in Carolina, Carlyle finally broke up the struggling line of Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak. The trio had been a big-time negative for the Leafs at even-strength in the past month, providing little offence while yielding quite a few shots and goals against. Weve got to shake some things up to get our 5-on-5 play better, Carlyle said, the Leafs near the bottom of the league in possession at even-strength. In doing so, he teamed van Riemsdyk up with two of the teams strongest possession players in Nazem Kadri and Mike Santorelli, also flipping Joffrey Lupul back onto the side of Kessel and Bozak (a look that dates back to the Ron Wilson days). We think theres ample supply of talent on each line, Carlyle said. And that we can mix and match any of those nine forwards with anybody. We think that van Riemsdyk can fit in there [with Kadri and Santorelli] and that Lupul and Bozak and Kessel can provide offence also. And thats not to say that Clarkson and Holland and if its Panik, if its Winnik, or whoever it is, cannot provide offence also, theyre offensive players. The changes did provide some early offence, but did little to alter a game that increasingly tilted in the oppositions favour. Carlyle reverted back to the combinations of previous weeks by the time the third period got going. Stats-Pack 38 – Average shots surrendered by the Leafs in the past eight games. 1st – Loss for the Leafs when scoring first this season. 369 – Points for Phil Kessel as a Leaf, placing him in a tie for 22nd in team history. 12 – Points in the last 11 games for James van Riemsdyk, who scored his 15th goal of the season against the Flyers. 48-33 – Possession advantage for the Flyers on Saturday.

Thats how long Michael Bradley was away from Toronto FC while with the United States team. For millions around the globe, the midfielders World Cup was simply four games of ninety minutes plus 30 minutes of extra time against Belgium. 390 minutes. Six and a half hours. Bradley sees it very differently. The games, of course, are the true high points from the experience, but six and a half hours out of fifty days meant that Bradley and his teammates spent less than one per cent of their World Cup experience by playing in a match. In a sit-down interview with TSN.ca this week, Bradley nods his head when he is told that 2010 World Cup winning coach Vicente Del Bosque talked about how important is was to not have one single issue between his 23 players during their run to becoming World Champions in South Africa. A conversation about the mental side of the game is one the 26-year-old American is very comfortable with. He chooses his words carefully but delivers them in a calming manner, with authority. “World Cups are very interesting in the way they test you. As a player and a team. For all the hype, the build-up, everything that goes on beforehand, the wait of four years, then the draw six months before, the stage is set for so long, but then the club season ends, players leave their MLS squads, and every team has a two-, three-week window to really prepare.” Bradley, who emphasizes the word really, is clear in his belief about how important that time is. He continues: “Regardless of how club seasons went, or are going, regardless of how qualifying went, whether you were the first team in or through a playoff, everyone gets that same, small window to prepare the best possible way. “As a team we talked beforehand about understanding what it was all going to be about. It is a big country so travel plays a huge role, the heat, humidity, even just it being in Brazil. As special as it is, you knew not everything would run properly. We prepared for travel delays, we knew things in hotels wouldnt be perfect so we talked about making sure we understood that, making sure we embraced that challenge. “I think we saw some big teams go home early because they werent able to deal with a combination of these factors. A team like Italy, for example, they lose against Costa Rica and Uruguay and, at the end of it, still have a lot to say about the heat." Bradley, a man who will always smile when talking about his Serie A experiences in Verona and Rome, loves Italy and called his son Luca, but it is clear he has no time for excuses at this level. As he reflects on his World Cup experiences the discussion keeps going back to mental toughness and preparation. Such characteristics bring him to his coach, Jurgen Klinsmann. “Jurgen brings an energy, an enthusiasm that is infectious. Thats so important as you go through a period like this, when you are together for six, seven, eight weeks. “Inevitably, certain guys hit the wall at a certain point. Some guys are away from their families for a long time, the monotony of the days, its always the case that guys need a push. I thought in those ways Jurgen did an incredible job.” Son of former USA coach Bob Bradley, it is not hard to see why Michael thinks like a coach and clearly he played a huge role in helping Klinsmann dictate such an atmosphere inside the camp. He doesnt talk much about himself, instead, once again, preferring to share the value in the mental side of the squad during each challenge it faced. “The first game comes quick, and depending how that first game goes you can be in a good spot or right away you have to deal with adversity or pressure after it didnt go the way you wanted. Each checkpoint along the way, depending on how the result goes, can really change the mood. So it is so important that you have a team that is strong, that has been tested together. If you show up to the World Cup and all you have is excitement but everything else is superficial and there isnt a real leader or personality on the team, or a real sense of commitment and togetherness, then the reality is that first sign of trouble is going to be a real test.” Bradleys intelligence and awareness on the field is all to see but spend any time with him off it and you could argue both attributes are even more glaring away ffrom the pitch.dddddddddddd Such things have led to his club coaches saying how he keeps them on his toes. It was clear, however, that he was impressed with Klinsmanns leadership qualities. “He found a balance between being positive, encouraging and giving the team confidence but still letting us know that there is still more for us. “Hed say, for example, ‘look we got out of the group but there is more we can do better. Obviously, it didnt work out that way but the way that things were taken care of within the team, the atmosphere, the commitment, the mentality of the team, was very good and I think that came out throughout the tournament. “For the most part, the teams that do well in World Cups are the ones that are able to have a group that is committed in winning, to stick with each other through it all, until the end.” This brings us to Germany, a team Bradley played in Brazil and a team he watched when he returned home. Despite getting knocked out, he admits he loves the game and has watched every match. He will be home on Sunday to take in the final. “Germany is a very good team, a group of guys who have been together for a very long time, and reap the benefits of having the core of their team play 60, 70 games together at Bayern Munich. I also think when a guy like Pep Guardiola goes to Bayern with some of the ideas and concepts he brings then you start to see it in the national team.” As they get ready for a World Cup final, Bradley isnt surprised at all they have got this far but knew they werent anywhere near the team they are today, when USA faced Germany back on June 26. “In terms of pure possession, circulating the ball, the angles, movement, how one guy comes into space and the next guy moves out, so they can keep the ball … I thought they were very good. But, they werent always finding the right ways to transition that into the final third to be a little more dangerous, to shoot, create a chance. Obviously they had a lot of the ball, their rhythm with the ball, the ease that all their players have in taking the ball in tight spots and playing with it is so good. However, looking back, on the day, it wasnt like they were just creating chance after chance like they did at such a high level against Brazil.” Germanys ability to be more clinical and precise in the final third has certainly improved dramatically since then. Bradley, who can play deeper inside a double pivot as well as in more of an advanced role inside a central midfield three, is perfectly placed to talk about where modern day football is going and the emphasis on counter-attacks and transitions. “Players are so athletic now, the demands on a physical level are so high. So, as teams continue to get better, stronger, fitter, faster it means that some of the best teams are at their most dangerous when the other team has the ball. They are organized, difficult to break down, but in the right moments they know how to press, and when they win the ball back they know how and where to go and go quickly, using their mobility and dynamic abilities to create goalscoring opportunities." Bradleys experience officially ended when he landed home with his wife Amanda and son Luca into Toronto on July 3, but he wont forget how it all ended against Belgium in a pulsating extra time in Salvador and the sudden finality of what comes next. “Its a weird thing, for almost two months you are in this mindset of World Cup and everything that means. Set mealtimes, training, treatment, meetings, games, recovery, all of these essential things and that is how it is right until the end and then that final whistle blows. “You are out and it is amazing how quickly everything changes, guys are on flights the very next morning and everyone is off going their own separate ways. Its disappointing and that can take a little while to go away.” His competitive spirit means such an emotion will take time to leave him but that didnt prevent him from a moment of reflection. “In the big moments, on the pitch, even when things werent going our way, we still had a resolve and determination that came out in a big way and every player, coach and person on that staff should be proud of that.” It is not hard to see why the mental side of the game is so important for Michael Bradley.
