    Default Match Day 12 - TFC @ Columbus Sat 2 June 7:30pm - I am waiting perpetually

    I am awaiting
    perpetually and forever

    a renaissance of wonder

    We seem to have been doing this since Chivas.

    I am waiting for Bradley to not play CB
    for Alitdore to come back
    for Mavinga to play a whole game & not have an injury sitting over him

    I am waiting for Justin Morrow to flow down the left
    I am waiting for a win that feels like that game against Montreal
    for vim for vigour & heart to plough through the sea towards a stellar win against a good team

    I am waiting for Seba to score one of the ridiculous shots he tries
    I am waiting for a PK to come around and not be wondering how this one is going to be stopped now


    I am waiting for Osorio not to take two touches again & for Delgado to get his Mojo back
    for Ricketts to have a good first touch

    I am waiting for Moor to smile again and
    wave his hands around to keep up the pace & be aware

    I am waiting for Aketxe to show his promise
    for Auro to get through 90 without missing an assignement
    I am waiting for Hamilton to get that shot off from the top of the box

    I am waiting for Hernandez to play a full game & for Chapman to boss the midfield
    for Bono to make that save that changes the game state & for Hagglund to make that tackle to start a quick counter

    I am awaiting
    perpetually and forever

    a renaissance of wonder

    Columbus have a few players out which is some good luck for us.

    Higuain (red card)
    Will Trapp and Zach Steffen (called up to USMNT)
    Martinez (might be suspended by disciplinary committee for last game)

    Steffen might actually be their biggest loss given our luck around goal lately. He's been very good.

    For the last time.

    For the all the floral majesty.

    Let's do this boys. I know we're down in the series.

    We got peeps going down to Mex...I mean Ohio for this trophy.

    Guada...I mean Columbus won this trophy the first time so they want it bad but let's do our best to disappoint them. For all those years. For Bill Archer.

    Hey ensco, glad you picked the dance version! Love Tracey Thorn and EBTG, I got introduced to her via her guesting on Paris Match...

    Very glad to hear that Steffen wouldn't be playing. Man has been a beast for them.

    Good time to capitalize!

    Tracey Thorn has the voice of a goddess.

    Seemed like a good pair to Og's poem.

    Would I be a bad person if I suggested that Aketxe's hip problem may not be real, and that they have just sent him home while they negotiate terminating his deal?

    Probably, I guess.

    I definitely agree with the initial premise but I think you could find a market for Aketxe in Spain for sure. Spanish clubs were supposedly all over him before we got to him.

    Would be quite the aggressive move by Bez, I suppose if he's convinced it's not going to work out, better to cut the cord early...

    Likely just another damn injury though.

    Her latest solo album is solid.

    When we signed Vazquez I was honestly quite worried about his health status.

    Of course we are in a flux right now; doesn't need to be stated. I hope we have enough healthy talent to make a run before it's to late. MLS is tough man. We're probably better then Orlando and New England but both those teams have improved a lot as well.

    Looks like Higuian had his red card rescinded so he will be playing.

    That sucks. He always does well against us

    Everyone is talking about Seba not scoring rn, but Vazquez has been almost anonymous in the league this season

    Higuain's red card, which he earned due to VAR, has been rescinded. So he's available again for this game.

    Literally reviewing video during games to send players off then reviewing the same video after games to overrule it now. Christ.

    Are we ever going to see TFC get an advantage from VAR this year?
