Toronto FC opened their home schedule on Saturday to the delight of their supporters but not the members of DC United.

On a frigid day at the Toronto waterfront, the field was not in ideal condition and the visitors were not impressed.

"The field was crap," D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson told MLSsoccer.com on Tuesday. "Absolute crap. As much as that team is ambitious, with the acquisitions they've made, you feel like the field would be in much better shape than that."

"It was a disaster," added teammate Fabian Espindola. "An absolute disaster. There were holes, chunks of grass missing. It was as bad as any field I've ever played on."

To their credit, the United players did not blame the field conditions for the 1-0 loss and appreciated the capacity crowd.

"It was a big crowd, a loud crowd, a crowd that wanted to see some quality football," added Johnson. "Being part of this league, and playing in some of the soccer-specific stadiums we play on, I can say that pitch was in very, very, very, very bad condition."
