    Lets hope they can carry this momentum . I know Columbus is supposed to be pretty good this year. I know we are better than last year and we have won in there park in the past including twice last year...

    Columbus is coming off a tough 1-0 loss to Houston. They had 60% possession and 18 shot attempts compared to Houston's 8. They just couldn't score.

    Limit crosses into Kamara and overwhelm Higuain in the middle. Not much else in the way of threats for them.

    Interested to see how Vanney approaches this defensively. Columbus do not have anywhere near the breakaway speed that Vancouver killed us with. Feeling pretty optimistic about this one.

    A win here would put us in a great spot. I'm not worried about offence given our firepower at hand, but defensively I'd like to see us play a tighter game.

    Higuain was just supremely unlucky on some of those shots. They'll want to make up for the wasted opportunities in front of their home crowd. Curious to see if Bloom starts over Crevalle. I'm sure everyone will be watching the tapes of the game and noting the problems TFC had with the high line in the first half and are already figuring out how to exploit it. I'm saying 1-1.

    Not sure what the pitch is going to be like given the weather until this week. Between that, a home opener, and Columbus being a legitimate contender for the East crown, I'm thinking getting out of there with a point would be a good result for us. Its all going to be about who gets more space Higuain or Seba. I'd hope Bradley and Cheyrou could shut down Higuain.

    Game of the week in my books.

    Weather should be interesting for this one.

    Yesterday was saying 10 degrees and rain. Today saying it'll be 3 degrees and snowing.

    We all laugh at the yellow football team
    the yellow football team
    the yellow football team
    the yellow football team


    We will eatz all their trilliumz.

    Hopefully we can get a point this week, 1 or 3 next time and take all 3 at home this year to win the i75 copa al trillumz. Didn't we play them away twice last year as well? no matter

    It will be interesting to see if Vanney can get it right for the first half as well. Good adjustment in Vancity but can we get a full 90 of tactical advantage.

    Can't afford to have a chaotic first half vs Columbus.

    Didn't we sweep the series against these guys last year? Honestly, with the squad we have now, there are no teams that I would be happy with a draw against. Cohesion is the only thing I would give to other team's as an advantage over us. Don't get me wrong, I don't expect to win every game, but there are no games that I would go into expecting to not win.

    I love this. You went out of your way not to mention that award we get for doing that.

    Columbus had some chances against Houston but both teams played as sloppy as the other and both weren't up to TFC/Vancouver standards. It's only one day to look at but that's what we got to go on. We should be favourites, realistically and every other way one can look at it.

    Yeah, exactly. I'll wait until about Thursday to see what the forecast says before I start planning what to wear for the bus trip.

    Seattle and New England have teams just as strong as ours.

    no, they have a team that's far better than ours. anyone who watched Seattle-NE game will tell you that Seattle is on an another level compared to TFC. they have the talent and level of team chemistry yet matched by TFC

    TFC looked good on paper last season too.

    but until this team wins some trophies and looks to be a legit contender, I don't count chickens before they are hatched, especially when it comes to TFC

    But I still wouldn't go into games against those teams expecting a loss and hoping for a draw.

    Fair enough, I should've said "or stronger." I was just referencing the fact that OP made it seem like we could steamroll any team that we come up against.

    They are better then most, but Seattle have a team built for that turf. And they were playing a team without its midfield bite. They are not a greyhound team as much as a quick transition one.

    Sunday April 12 they play at LAG. That's the real test. We play them in September. Probably will be injuries and suspensions involved by then, but I like our chances.

    Actually, the OP said that all games are winnable. It never said anything about walking over or steamrolling anyone. I'm sick of hearing that a draw would be a good result, just because we're playing a good team. We have a good team too. Every team is beatable (including TFC BTW), and now more than ever we should actually be expecting to win games.

    It would be pretty impressive to ruin 2 home openers in a row. Surely not?

    I'd take a point right now.
