    Default A little taste of heaven - TFC vs. Union PreSeason Sat 27 Feb 4 pm Youtube

    Vanney indicating starters will be playing the 90. This game should give us a good idea of what to expect.


    Out

    Beitashour

    Warner

    This should essentially be our opening day lineup. I wonder what is done up front... gomez as a straight swap for altidore or will we see babouli or hamilton get a spot upfront?

    I didn't hear that Beitashour was injured but I guess that explains why I haven't seen him in any of the preseason stuff yet. Do we know what the issue is and how long he is out? Aside from him and Altidore I guess the rest of the main unit will be playing so good to see. I like Babouli's speed, workrate and ability. I think him on the left, Endoh on the right and Seba in the middle could be a pretty fast and agressive front 3 unless we need a target type of guy with more experience then maybe Gomez would fit that bill better. Looking forward to the game.

    I noticed that it was the Union peeps that were putting the games on youtube (Well at least ours) I'll thank them for that. It was KC who stepped up to post them one other year.

    Reports are he's coming back to training next week. Quadriceps. Possible starter for the opener.

    get used to it people .. last 2 years in vancouver it was hips & quads all the time. Still, he is serviceable player while playing injured ... just not a top 5 MLS RB

    #TFC Starting XI vs. @PhilaUnion: Irwin; Morrow, Moor, Perquis, Bloom; Cheyrou, Bradley, Johnson; Osorio, Giovinco, Endoh.

    Interested to see how that front 3 works.

    FWIW - Union playing a 4-2-3-1

    Starting XI: Blake; Fabinho, Anderson, Tribbett, Rosenberry; Carroll, Nogueira; Pontius, Ilsinho, Fernandes; Sapong
    They are expecting big things of Sapong this season.

    Ilsinho is the Brazilian guy they just got who got 2 yellows in 50 minutes the other night.

    Nice. Got this running 1080p on my flat screen. Hope the stream doesn't get interrupted.

    It is great to have Lee back in action, was so pissed when he was let go. Sportsnet or TSN needs to bring him back into the fold. Once of the great voices in Canadian soccer !

    What a difference in the quality of stream they Rowdies are doing compared to the Union one a few days ago. Would expect more from the MLS.

    Fantastic ball over the top from Endoh to Giovinco leads to a decent chance for Osorio.

    I think midfield is very disorganized. Too many shuttlers, not enough discipline. lots of useless running around

    I don't think I like Giovinco in the middle. He's not getting enough touches. Meanwhile Osorio is getting a ton at LW but doesn't have the skillset to run at defenders with pace.

    I think Godfrey has been fine so far. Nice to have someone who knows a bit about the team, compared to what you would expect in a pre-season game.

    Nah I don't know about that. I bet he's enjoying the Florida weather. Wasn't he the guy who would always give a speech instead of asking a question?

    Godfrey's a better commentator than interviewer, not that that's saying much.

    For our last preseason game, we look pretty damn sloppy.
