    My thinking:

    There is going to be a LOT of attempts at incitement over the next few weeks. Twitter is going to be a farce. Larson is going to be a freaking pain.

    I don't care.

    I got one thing I am going to approach all this. Love of the team I follow, love of the game, love of being in this position that lots of other teams did not get to this season. Love for my fellow supporters.

    I am going to Turn My Love WAY Up Inside.

    Let the Haters Hate.

    Don't Care

    Otherwise, this experience is just going to be too freaking stroke creating.

    Going to surf this feeling for the next 24 days.

    Not a member this year but have been on and off since 2008. Happy to put $25 in the group pot to get tickets with y'all.

    To those going to Montreal: stay safe guys. I'm sure those Impact fans would love to get us sanctioned for the home leg.

    Were these tickets part of the initial playoff pack we purchased? If not how much are they gonna ding us for?

    We'll be coming from Ottawa. I've got to call for tickets first thing in the morning in the away support sections. On the diagram it says they're in 149, 151, 257, 259, 261, and 263. It looks like the tickets will be $37. Pretty cheap for what the game represents.

    It's going to be an insane atmosphere at the Big O for this one. The boys need to be ready.

    Its a shame that the Eastern COnference finals are being played during the week, and the Western get the luxury of a weekend fixture! Would definitely love to represent the 416 in MTL. But yes...be safe! Bring the noise!

    FYI --- the first leg in Seattle just got moved to the Tuesday night as well (after the the Tor vs Mtl game) --- Seahawks play at home on the Sunday ---see its not just Toronto that has other sports affect their schedule....frankly I'm shocked the Colorado home game on the 27th wants to go up against the Broncos vs Chiefs at the same time, when Denver is Broncos country much more than Rapids country and fans may be less inclined to go/watch when their Broncos are playing at the same time....

    All booked for Mega Bus, arriving at lunch time on the 22nd, leaving in the afternoon the next day. $62.68 was the total. Not bad at all.

    The way I see this game...it is TFC vs Piatti. He is literally their only wild card against us I think. If we can keep him quiet Montreal will fall. If he is given room to operate he can have those individual moments of glory where he can hurt us like he did before and he did to NYRB recently. I don't think they have much else and TFC have been able to handle the rest of the Impact well this year so that trend will hopefully continue.

    Just a heads up, most of the ticketing contacts and reps traveled yesterday, so it will be a couple days before we get all set up as a group for this match. Updates will be posted.

    If Drogba feels like playing, he can be a problem too.

    Agreed. Keep Piatti quiet. Get at least 1 away goal in Montreal. Then TFC can go all the way.

    Drogba off the bench is another wildcard.

    I think that's a fair assessment although they have a few other scrappy contributors.

    I would put Piatti as my MVP this year TBH. Heck of a player, just playing for the wrong team

    Sounds like they are open to selling tickets in the temporary stand. This game is gonna be nuts. (oops, put this in the wrong place. I meant for our game obviously).

    I'm a little surprised Montreal is electing to have the game at the Big O instead of Saputo. Obviously I get going for extra revenue, but they crushed us at Saputo last year, figured they might have wanted to host there again and play up the fact that we're going back to the place where it ended for us. Also, not that I would really expect any management team to consider this seriously, but there's some evidence that referees are more influenced in favor of the home team when fans are physically closer to the pitch.

    Other consideration is moving from grass pitch that Impact know well for the last several months to crappy turf field that they haven't seen since probably opening day. Wouldn't that level the playing field a bit too with both teams getting used to the pitch? Also, will prima-Drogba play on turf for them?

    I agree with you. I would think it would be advantageous to them playing at Saputo with the fans so much closer to the pitch. So I think it is a good thing for us moving it to the Big O. Hopefully that is the case.

    The energy of 60,000 fans might alleviate some of their concerns. Besides, they have won plenty of big games at the Big O over the years.

    Like Jack said, this is going to be a tough battle.

    so what's the story with Bradley and Jozy and the USMNT Nov 15? are we really losing them to this game in the middle of our play-off run? Can you imagine if they get injuries??

    WTF?!?!

    Uh, its an official FIFA calender break and they are playing their two biggest rivals for a place in the World Cup. Price of having internationals.
