    All we have to do is keep scoring each time they do then we are fine....problem solved....haha.

    Crap Moor already injured again. Hopefully they're shutting him down early / as a precaution and it won't last. I thought he played great against NYC, both defending and passing; looked a few years younger to me actually. But against Chicago, Bono gets the stick, but questionable passes from Moor contributed to both goals against.

    I really think we need another (younger) Moor or Mavinga-level defender to get us through the season. For a Mavinga backup, it doesn't have to be at his elite athletic ability, maybe a bit calmer than Mavinga (or Ciman), and a bit faster than Moor (or Ciman). I don't suppose any of TFC's young defenders are at that level...?

    RE expectations against Seattle, what matters for me more than results is a) 90-minute effort, and b) not repeating mistakes over and over again. That's my biggest worry for this team (both individual players, and the whole strategy incl. formation, captain & coaching): that when things go sideways, and mistakes are made, that they really seem to struggle to turn things around or learn from their mistakes.

    Seattle Salt Lake were one-sided for most of that match. We are in for a test.

    with the news of Auro and Moor out for the game I see a switch to a 3 (or 5) at the back:

    Laryea -- Zavs -- Ciman -- Mavinga -- Morrow

    or pull out Mavinga to the bench (load management):

    Laryea -- Zavs -- Ciman -- Morrow

    I also see a littel bit of rotation up front too:

    Bradley (bc he plays every game anyway)
    Chapman -- Poz -- Delgado (Give Oso a break as he is coming off his sports hernia, and run out Champan and Delgado)
    Boyd -- Hamilton
    Load management again for Jozy, plus gives the run-out to Boyd and Hamilton as we need to know if they can hold down the fort if Jozy if pulled to the USMNT for the Gold Cup, which may still happen at the rate he is going.

    I don't think they are going to want both Moor and Mavinga out. I think Mavinga plays, maybe misses the match after that.

    I think so to. Ciman will start with Mavinga in the back. If everything goes to plan and we aren't losing I could see Vanney putting Zavaleta on and switching to 3-5-2. He hinted at giving them minutes this week or next.

    Be interesting to see how Pozo handles the flight/jetlag . He looked whipped getting off that flight from Madrid. He is not used to these distances.

    Seattle is viewed as a big fav by the bookmakers:


    (1st column is for Sea victory, 2nd column for the draw, and the 3rd column for Tor victory)

    For those not into betting, here is a short explanation:

    If using Pinnacle sportsbook:
    - to have a net gain of $100, you have to risk $122, if you bet on Sea to win
    - to have a net gain of $351, you have to risk $100, if you bet on Tor to win.

    If Bono made the mistake the Chicago goalkeeper made last night
    I shudder to think of the comments here. Myself included.
    This same keeper was great against us last week.
    I guess we've got to temper things a little bit. Mistakes get made.
    Also, none of us are privy to how well Bono plays during practice

    Terrible odds. Use bet365.
    100$ will pay 500$...net gain of 400$

    This maybe valid for these odds, however bet365 is a crap book (they will ban or will severely limit long time/constant winners), while Pinnacle is the world's best book by far (the choice of most of the pros, because they never limit you), and SboBet is also an extremely solid bookie.

    3 at the back was always the most likely approach. Westberg is not going to be the saviour of this team but it was time.

    Interested in seeing how Poz does after travel & on turf.

    Westberg could actually be huge for the Reds after the gaffes Alex had last week.

    Glad Zavaleta is getting some minutes. Caldwell had an interesting analysis of the weakness in our D on his and KJ’s last podcast - essentially if Bradley plays really deep, it pushes the centre halves apart and with the fullbacks pushed up, we are really vulnerable on the counter. Kind of blames both Bradley and Vanney.

    3-5-2 but probably more like a 3-2-4-1

    Jozy vs. Marshal is going to be interesting

    Thats the inherit risk playing such a style with Bradley acting as the Busquets dropping between the center halves. Barcelona is also vulnerable to counter attacks as demonstrated by teams sitting back and countering.

    Thanks!

    I have no time to go somewhere to watch the game, and it's blocked on DAZN for 48 hours. So I thought of giving TSN Direct a try today. Luckily I checked the schedule before; apparently the TFC game isn't being shown on TSN Direct? Does that sound right? Man what BS, why wouldn't they show most major events, I guess they don't want my money.


    Somewhere it said the game would also be shown on CTV in addition to TSN 2, but I think that's an error. Oh well, I tried.

    Just spent the past few hours exploring around nature, beautiful spring day out. Now bunkering in for an evening of sports.

    Westberg getting the call between the pipes, let's see how he seized this new opportunity.

    C'mon you Reds!

    There's a couple posted above. The first one works, but isn't great quality. Trying the others, got partway through, no luck yet.
