    Default Game 17: TFC Goes to the Bronx - NYC vs. TFC Sunday July 12 3 pm TSN

    So we go from the league's widest field to its thinnest. Lampard to play, but not Pirlo.

    Nobody suspended.


    REF: TED UNKEL He has the most yellow cards per game of any ref in the league. Not that this means anything as the one guy just below him is Chapman who did the last NYCFC game and was pathetic.

    Tough match but a result very possible.

    I don't think NYC will keep up this form. It has to return to the mean at some point so I'm hoping for a win and expecting a draw.

    Looking forward to taking the 4 train up to Yankee Stadium this Sunday from Mid-Town Manhattan. It could be an interesting game. Hopefully this depleted Reds lineup can get more comfortable with each other with a full week of training this week and come out with better showing.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    We should put Tie Domi on the left wing for this one. #BreakAllTheirFuckingLegs

    I'm guessing NYC is going to try and batter Gio the same way they did in Toronto, how the ref reacts to it will likely dictate the match. That said, I wonder how Unkel will screw us this time... phantom handball? No call in the box? Mystery offside? So many possibilities!

    Why do I have this gut feeling that Lampard will be scoring his first, second and third MLS goals against us on Sunday.

    I can feel it, its going to be a shit show regardless what happens and I guarantee the ref will loose control of the game.

    Really, really want to put them in their place after the way the last game went. If they actually try to play instead of bunker Giovinco should find a ton of space.

    Vanney needs to instruct the team to Get The Fuckin Ball to Giovinco ! Last game i believe he only had 7-8 touches the entire game. Ridiculous.

    After the debacle last week, TFC is once again heading for the basement unless they replace all of the defenders, excepting for Perquous (spelling?)....we are so easily scored upon by most playoff bound teams. Pretty embarrassing that every other expansion team since 07 takes only a year or two to be competetive.

    You guys reminded me of Serioux's, Welcome to the MLS Beckham, by back in 2008.
    "Failure simply isn't an option at this stage. TFC pushed its chips to the middle of the table when it splurged on Bradley and Defoe and reinforced its bet by making savvy acquisitions elsewhere. This collection of players is capable of delivering on the promises made during the close season. There are no more excuses available for TFC. Only success will continue the process of atoning for the past and establishing a higher standard for the future." FOX Sports

    Well once you count how many long balls DIDN'T get to him that were sent plus the times he was double or triple teamed... its just as ridiculous to stick with one play regardless of the result.

    It was a frustrating game from that POV that EVERYONE on that field or sideline knew the limited options we had for goalscoring that game.

    But this is a new game and we'll see some adjustments made to the lineup I'd hope.

    Unfortunately, New York is a key opponent in trying to make the playoffs, and we really need points against them. A win or a loss has massive implications.

    Good to have more options. Bad that they aren't named Bradley and Altidore (or even Osorio and Morgan).

    Giovinco - Moore

    Chapman


    Keep Cheyrou back to hold the midfield and we should have a game.

    ----------Giovinco----------
    Chapman ---------- Warner-

    Giovinco takes the most shots this league has ever seen.

    No way he plays as an AM.

    I agree. I've seen a fair number of suggested lineups where Gio is slotted in at the top of the diamond. I just don't see it. He plays like a forward and does extremely well as a forward. The way our team plays that diamond, our AM is really a midfielder, not an "in-the-hole" forward/attacker. Bradley (and anyone who covers for him) has to track back and help not just with attacking, but with winning balls and making the transition. That takes Gio a long way from the goal where he is most dangerous (or, if he stays up that way, it leaves our other midfielders with less options and support to recover and transition to attack). Either way, I don't see Gio playing in that spot anytime soon.

    Surprised to see game will start at 3:00 PM and not 5:00 PM... glad I checked.

    It is not possible to tailgate in a traditional sense at Yankee Stadium because of the parking garages... any ideas for pro-soccer pre-game pubs/bars near Yankee Stadium?

    Are those headed to the game sitting in 224 or elsewhere? Away Supporters are kept after the game for 30 - 45 min. due to security measures.

    If we end up in another Seba hackfest with NYFC constantly clearing the ball long, I wouldn't be averse to seeing Seba in the hole and Hamilton up next to Moore so that they can knock down and hold up balls for him. Hagglund, who played some forward in college and is exceptionl in the air, would be another option. His job is purely to win headers and hold up the ball with back to goal, distribute to Seba and Moore, win corners. It seems a feasible strategy based on how much time our opponents seem to spend clearing the ball long these days.

    The Dugout across the street is where a lot of footy supporters go pre-game, I will likely be there for a bit anyways!!

    That would have to be a halftime or late game adjustment, though. I have no doubt that they will play their hacking game, so hopefully we can find a way to get him some time and space. We can't rely on the referees to call things, so we'll have to figure something out.

    Delgado---Perquis---Zavaleta---Morrow

    -----------------Cheyrou--------------------

    Jackson-----------------------------Warner

    ----------------Chapman-------------------

    ----------Moore----------Giovinco---------

    Hoping Bloom starts to be honest. He's not much going forward but he's decent in defence.
