    Squad rotation.
    I'll be ok dropping this game, as long as we're good to go for the weekend.
    But if TFC has Shield aspirations, gotta win this.

    2-0 TFC.

    Orlando is still trying to figure stuff out the way Jason Kreis wants to play. Jozy goes hulkamania mode and run riot over Orlando defence, just like last season's away game.

    Good time for some squad rotation. Home game on the weekend vs. Montreal is way more important than this.

    I'd like to see Morgan get a start, maybe give Moor a break in the middle. Start Chapman, maybe Endoh. Jozy can go 45.

    I see it the exact opposite. Montreal in freefall haven't won at BMO in a long time. That should be a much easier 3 points. Play the big boys on Wednesday and get all the points. Saturday - the youngsters can do the business at home.

    Is there a column in the standings for home points?

    points or PPG?

    TFC is at 2.18 PPG at home and 1.14 PPG away. 1.6 PPG total as of today

    Sorry, left the smiley off. My point was, some were arguing the Montreal points were more important than the Orlando points. To me, 3 is 3, don't care which game they come from.

    (edit: actually, I want all 6)

    In case anybody was wondering, the team flew straight to Orlando today. The team has a bit of a comfort level down there given preseason is in the area. Getting 3 nights sleep in town before the game is a good thing too. The turnaround to Saturday will be a tad tight but any team at this level will have been working on a plan for that game for awhile.

    I am worried about all the vets playing in extreme heat Wednesday.

    I would think about sitting Seba and Altidore, at least until halftime.

    I would rest Jozy. What's the point playing him on that crappy turf? Bring him off the bench for 15-20 minutes if absolutely necessary.

    Cooper practiced for a half hour with morgan and hamilton before the game saturday. He then sat with Morgan near our section in one of the box seats. He is available for selection wednesday although larsun is saying he wont play till saturday.

    Play the reserves for most of the match and bring in Seba, Bradley, and Altidore for the final 30 minutes to try and steal a win or a draw. No point risking injuries to our best players on turf and short rest.

    I suspect Kreis has a few ideas about how to contain Seba. His NYCFC team was one of the few sides who did, at least for that one game at BMOF. I like the idea of giving him 30 min at the end, but probably would start Altidore despite the turf peril.

    Orlando is 1-4-1 in their last six. Kreis hasn't exactly given them much of a bump since he took over. We didn't play that well in Orlando last time but their home record is 4-7-1, not exactly intimidating, lol. The best part is that this is the most intimidating match up for the rest of the year! The rest of the games are against opponents with losing records (all home games except Chicago), even the mighty Red Bulls have only won once away this year!

    I'd be concerned about his players hacking down Seba.

    I'm sure he's going to try. And that's one reason why we got Johnson.

    My prediction:

    1) We'll rotate the squad
    2) Things don't go as planned
    3) Vanney will make subs that people won't like
    4) We'll lose or worse, draw
    5) Vanney's tactics will be criticized
    6) "We only win because of Seba"
    7) #VanneyOut

    Was this a clever way to suggest every game is equally important? If so I'll just say in a double game week squad rotation is a good idea, and therefore it's wise to save your strongest eleven for the game most likely to earn you maximum points.

    That and the fact we have stars that are coming back from injury that don't need to be pushed back onto that injury table. Agree.
