    The nerve. Andrea Lombardo hit the odd parking lot attendant. Nowhere near the sky.

    No Jozy, disjointed team, however this is MLS so anything can happen.

    "Scuse me, while I kiss this guy". Should we all get high for the match and bliss out?!?

    one of the most misheard lyrics of all time. love it.

    Hoping we show more intent and drive than last week. Really have to wonder about the motivation right now but hopefully it was as they said and everyone was just off for whatever reason.

    2-4 for the good guys.

    I think Orlando is a top 3 team in the east.

    I expect this place to go completely nuts if we lose, as we well may. May go on a siesta if that happens.

    How a team can pull such a dull and uninterested performance like last week, at home, without any fixture congestion, against a team with a bad record, makes me confused. I have no idea how to predict this game. We can easily lose 3-0 or win 3-0.

    At the moment I think Vanney has to go with a 4-4-2 Diamond. It’s the only way to make sense of the players he has available, with the width provided by Morrow and Auro. JHams and Auro up front, Poz at the top of the diamond, Oso and Deleon, then Bradley. I don’t know how that works versus Orlando but our strength is inside not outside at the moment ie Oso’s technical abilities so we should play to that strength. We don’t have any wingers so don’t play a formation that uses them.

    Yes. The width was lacking on Saturday. When we get to the goal line and cross then we're dangerous.

    I am not very confident we can get a result in this one. Orlando seem to be finally hitting their stride. Nani is going to cause major problems with our backline. I wonder if Moor is healthy enough to crack the line up this week.

    Vanney said that Moor is out for this game. Jozy on the bench possibly.

    Tough one to win, I'm thinking it will be a 2-2 draw.

    I can see Vanney going with a 5-4-1 away against a good offense/suspect defense. Oso and Delgado on either side; DeLeon has been less effective in recent games and should see the bench.

    As a Utd fan, Nani was one of the most frustrating players I've ever seen at the club. Absolute pure brilliance and then utter shite in equal measures. It was because you knew he was so talented that when he did stupid decisions it exacerbated it so much more. On his day he's top drawer. The one thing he never liked was the physical aspect. Jamie Carragher once famously done him in a game and he genuinely looked scared to go near the ball again afterwards. It's unfortunate that we don't have that physical type, and not neccessarily a dirty player, as I've seen him shy away in other games where players hit him hard but fair.

    Is still like to see the 3-5-2 with these players - Ayo and JHams up front.

    Oh boy. These games in the high heat/humidity, I cannot remember a single one going well.

    Yeah. Players slow down. Look thirsty. I drink more.

    Yeah, I want to see something like this too. If Vanney trots out the same line-up and formation as the past too games, with guys playing out of position and not having any ideas, I'm going to be pissed.

    Of course the highlights only give you a glimpse. I have no idea anymore how lucky TFC was in that game, when considering overall play & serious chances. The stats didn't look good for TFC: https://matchcenter.mlssoccer.com/ma...ronto-fc/stats

    E.g. 42 to 24 duels won, in favour of Orlando.
