TORONTO -- The president of Toronto FC says the MLS playoffs are a longshot but still possible this season.

Toronto has yet to experience the post-season, missing out the last six seasons.

And with a record of 2-8-7, the struggling club is currently 13 points out of the fifth and last playoff spot in the East.

Toronto president Kevin Payne says the team has dug itself a deep hole. But it can pick up points with a good winning streak.

Plus the team has plenty of games left against Eastern Conference opposition

As for Uruguayan star Diego Forlan, Payne didn't deny interest but said he wouldn't talk publicly about a player under contract to another club.
