pumas isn't must win, the dallas game is must win. tie pumas and beat dallas by more than 1-0 and we're through no matter what. win against pumas then tie against dallas and we're out (unless we beat pumas by more than 4, or either dallas or pumas fail to beat tauro).

as long as either we get a point or dallas drops points next week, it comes down to the dallas game, win and we're in.

FANS REUNITED (http://64.13.252.151/forums/showthread.php?p=1382083#post1382083)

Brighton supporters are calling for fans of all clubs in the UK to travel down to Home Park to support Plymouth Argyle in their hour of need.

This is in part to return the favour from almost 15 years ago when Brighton themselves stared into the great abyss of football oblivion.

The link above leads to the thread I started in the International Forum. Take a look.

It would be great if we could get behind this... supporters supporting supporters.

MLSE has to reall find a way to get those seats filled for TUesdays match...it just to big for them not too...

for watever seats remain...price them @ $10 a pop...reach out to the minor footies associations...ect..ect

With this being the biggest game in our short history...not only would it be great to get the city on board....but could be a great way to get new supporters to jump aboard!...

Sounds like the Red Bulls are crumbling right before the playoffs. Marquez says his team mates are not on his level :facepalm:

That was Rafa Marquez's passive-aggressive way of asking for a transfer. If Backe doesn't bench him after that, we'll know he's lost control of the team. IMO RBNY is in bigger meltdown than we were in at the end of last season.

if that is the case we have to beat them 5 nil.....you think?

How cool would that be! Quick, someone put a newspaper clip about that humiliating game up in the dressing room, and a sign up list for who will provide each goal on Oct 1.

That would be so sweet if we had the opportunity on Oct. 1 to put NYRB out of their misery and end their playoff hopes. You know what they say about payback....

This whole Marquez drama, makes me thankful that Winter/Mariner actually thought about the DP issues and bought in players that compliment the team, instead of just a big name. For that, they get my praise.

Not that Frings isn't a big name, but you get my point.

This is my new side-goal for the season. That Year 3 loss to NYRB caused damage that TFC is still recovering from two years later.

Revenge will be sweet.

Regardless if TFC doesn't make the playoffs or if they get knocked out of the CCL, I want them going into the NY game with the goal of throttling that team and ending their playoff hopes once and for all as repayment for the Nightmare in New Jersey.

I was there and I still get angry over that night.

I can't believe Marquez made those comments publicly. As a DP, a player of his stature should be rallying his teammates after a disappointing loss, not dissing them. I would not want to be part of that locker room at the moment.

It looks like the ship is sinking in New York, and I would also love to watch TFC put the final nail in their coffin as far as their playoff hopes are concerned.

This is bad for the League. Isn't everyone worried that the Giants of MLS falling will mean the league will fall in it's overall popularity?

And think of poor New Jersey.

Who will drink what the RedBull is brewing when the Cosmos(or NY2) are added next year??

Hear, Hear!

And i'm the best player on my team too. I usually let my team have it during our half-time smoke. No need to coddle these beer league players!

A demonstration of the power of supporters:

http://blogs.thescore.com/footyblog/

Stockholm Derby where both supporters groups remained silent for the first 10 minutes to demonstrate the importance of their participation.

The flares at the end look amazing. Total white out in the statium.

If anyone knows how to post the video directly to this site, that would be very cool.

not talking about the flares.

talking about why supporters are important in football (and if whoever is watching this vid only comes up with conclusion that flares are cool, they need a swift kick to the head)

I wish the silent supporters moment was like a min longer so that the viewers can fully appreciate what the supporters do

Pretty cool that they all stayed in their seats during the half to continue chanting.
