    Another cold night at BMO tomorrow... this seems to the standard forecast for all of TFC's important games over the last couple of seasons! The goal celebrations always seem more epic in this weather.

    INJURY UPDATE:

    Defender Nick Hagglund will be out for approximately six weeks after sustaining “a reasonably significant hamstring strain.”


    Vanney also provided updates on the trio that missed Friday night's 3-1 win over Real Salt Lake, but would not deliver a final verdict on the statuses of Chris Mavinga, Justin Morrow, or Victor Vazquez. “They all completed training today. We’ll see how things progress tomorrow.”

    Slow build with some of the fans and casuals. Come the final, they will come around. All I know is I will be nervous as heck watching tomorrow. Come on TFC. I want to win !

    Was looking at the match preview on MLSsoccer.com and noticed this:


    • Suspended after next caution: Emanuel Aguilera, Carlos Vargas, Cecilio Dominguez, Paul Aguilar, Alejandro Diaz
    • Projected Starting XI
      (4-4-2, right to left)
      GK: Agustin Marchesin — Paul Aguilar, Bruno Valdez, Emanuel Aguilera, Carlos Vargas — Renato Ibarra, Mateus Uribe, Guido Rodriguez, Cecilio Dominguez — Henry Martin, Oribe Peralta


    That's three quarters of the backline; either they play it safe or they get suspended for Azteca.

    For what it's worth though:


    • Suspended after next caution: Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore


    Bradley I am not too worried about, he managed to go unbooked in the series with Tigres, Jozy is the one that worries me.

    But it was totally necessary to sign two fullbacks and another attacking mid this winter 🙄 smh

    Hagglund wouldn’t have started Tuesday, and I bet Zavaleta doesn’t either.

    Plus vdW can play there. So can Bradley.

    Maybe we re-sign Jason Hernandez.

    Plus injuries happen.

    I am totally fine with how they spent the TAM.

    The weather should make things spicy. Maybe soggy would be a better way to put it.

    I second your thoughts

    -------------------------Bono
    ---------Van Der Weil--Moor---Mavinga
    -------Auro Jr.------------------------Morrow
    ---------------Delgado------Bradley
    -----------------------Vazquez
    ----------------Giovinco----Altidore


    In my honest opinion, we have to be the favourites with this lineup. I'm also pretty happy with a 4-4-2

    Oso > Delgado ...right now......for me

    We need to attack tomorrow. Score multiple times. I think this game suites him more than marky.

    All aboard the Oso train !!!

    Interesting how the way players are playing ( Oso versus Axetke, for example) is making the formation pretty clear. Will change again during the season as others come on, I am sure.

    Also interesting to see what the lineup will be if Vasquez cannot play. I am betting that it will be a 3-5-2. If he plays, a 4-4-2

    Yeah, that’s the one. The TFC subreddit isn’t super active with discussions. Nowhere near as much as here.

    We're spoiled now. Back then, every move -- every decision -- worried the shit out of us. Now, we know the team is likely to perform well because it's focussed and we trust our coach.

    Rare. But it leads to a malaise on discussing things.

    Personally, I used to spend more time analyzing the games and performance etc and posted more often, but my interest in debate has abandoned me with age. I'm busy trying to juggle a home business/writing career, and am usually content to read others' comments and watch the game.

    Still don't miss a minute, though.

    Plus as far as I can tell, we still have a bunch of TAM to spend. Maybe we bring some Mavinga level CBs in during the summer.

    Idk. We just used TAM on two players this off-season and already had Vazquez on TAM. We've also traded away TAM the last two seasons. We also have a lot of players on big salaries who aren't on TAM. Not confident we have room to use TAM even if we have some.

    Almost no coverage of this in Mexico City newspapers. Just a couple of stories about the Osuna visit

    This weather forecast .... 3 degrees, rain, wind gusts to 35km, wind chill of minus 7.....

    TFC haven’t really had driving rain in the cold yet at BMO. We have had one or the other, but not both.

    It can be truly, truly abominable down there. Raise your hand if you were at the 1982 Grey Cup at Exhibition Stadium. That was the worst conditions I ever saw at any sports event anywhere.

    I am in sec 126 and the roof provides very little coverage with any wind. It seems that three quarters of the section gets wet.

    No chance he plays a 4-4-2. While available players might suggest a potential 4-4-2, Club America plays a wide game. 3-5-2 is the best way to stifle their attacks without leading to defensive errors.

    C'mon you honestly think Bradley can fill in at CB? Or that he ever will?

    That's disappointing. Monterrey papers was all over it. What's bigger in sport there than America?

    To be fair, that paper did put up a real story, which I missed
    http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/univer...merica-cecilio

    But the sports pages in the 3 Mexico City papers I checked had very little. Tons of Liga MX, some Euro Champions league, Vela (and Zlatan) in LA, Mexican baseball.... those were the stories.

    America has won CCL twice recently. I think these guys are under way less pressure to win than Tigres was.
