    If a part of the reason for training in Mexico was to get used to the altitude, aren't they coming home a bit early before the Colorado game?

    They are going to Colorado earlier than they normally do for a road game, heading out Sunday morning, so will get in two days of training.

    So then that loss got them to sharpen up their game? The rematch this year should be interesting.

    might have cost Raheem his spot with the club.. certainly ended his ascendancy

    Did we actually qualify for this tournament 4 times over in one year?
    2017 Supporter Shield, check
    2017 MLS Cup, check
    2016 Canadian championship, check
    2017 Canadian championship, check

    That’s a lot of winning for 1 entry into the tourney. Can we get a bye or get drawn against ourselves in the first round?

    Only the last two count for a Canadian club. The USSF are not going to give the first two to a Canadian club. Still, qualifying twice is one time more than should be necessary.

    I suspect Anthony Hudson is seriously over his head at Colorado. His signings reek of not respecting the level of the league and thinking it's equivalent to the A-League.

    I felt like this too.

    We better wash & rinse them next week. Man for man, we're better in every position.

    Pretty much.

    My prediction? Our club is going to hammer them.

    Are any of you planning on coming down to Joe's for this? I'll be there since I'm near by but I assume 10pm on a Tuesday is not doable for most.

    BTW is there a chance you guys can bring the Supporter's Shield on Tuesday? Would love to see if up close.

    I predict 0 - 4: Seba x2, Jozy, and (insert player here).

    The temperature at kick off is predicted to be - 12C. I wonder if there will be any consideration to postponing a day due to the cold. I also wonder if attendance will reach 4 digits...

    Had they played the game today, which was the obvious thing to do from the first second this tie was set, they’d be benefitting from milder daytime temps, and guess what? A fluke warm day. They’d be playing in 13 or 15 degree C weather

    Instead it’ll be minus 13 at kickoff Tuesday.

    Somebody needs to be fired at Concacaf and/or MLS. This is beyond insane. There will be 500 people there, no one watching on TV, and guys will get hurt, guaranteed.

    I don’t think Seba or Jozy should be risked in this game. It’s too dangerous.

    We should play in all the positions the reserve squad, except our defense.
    Then they should just park the bus, minimising the running around, thus reducing the injury possibility.

    Seriously... no problem, if we get beaten worst case by 1-0, 2-1, or 3-2 there.
    We can't risk some fucking injuries of important players because of the arctic weather there.

    We should destroy them at BMO with at least 3 goals difference.

    The game should be postponed to Friday or Saturday. Not ideal to have short turn around time but it does happen during the season so why not now. The risk to the players' health and welfare is extreme on Tuesday.

    Anyways, who are the assclowns who established the date, time and place of this game?

    I swear, if it would be after me, I would drop off them wearing just trunks, a map in hands, 10 miles away from the closest log cabin in the wilds of Colorado, Tuesday morning at 9 AM!
    Plus I would help 'em even with a healthy kick in their asses to get them moving/running towards salvation.

    Sure!
    But of course TFC will support the big cost of some 3-4 extra day stay in some hotel in Colorado for all the squad.
    They should bill the idiots at CONCACAF with all this extra expense.

    The way you guys speak, you'd think a football has never be played in those conditions. Just look at football across northern or Eastern Europe or for examples closer to home, look at the Bills.

    They should have know this could happen. There are so many things they could have done to prevent this situation.

    -Neutral site down south for both legs
    -Indoor game mandatory
    -Discretionary game date decided 5 days out
    -Afternoon game!

    Imagine the shitshow that would occur if a Mexican team in the middle of their season was asked to come to Denver on Tuesday night...fucking CONCACAF is a joke, always has been.

    Concacaf should step in and postpone this one. No one will cry over a re-located venue or a move in the date or potentially even a switch. Interesting enough:

    Feb 20: Toronto: + 14


    Feb 27: Colorado: + 10
