But I challenge anyone to explain the deep and secret thinking that has led us to where we are today.
    So can we talk again about the success of Vanney’s reindeer games with the formation. Now that it is 1-0 for Montreal.

    So Vanney final twigs and brings Pozeulo on but takes off our best performer in the 1st half to accommodate him. The guy hasn’t a clue!

    I’d debate that heavily. We won with the better team and home field advantage first and foremost.

    Bradley's passing really has been pretty terrible lately.

    Good: Some fucking urgency, finally. It's been a while. Pretty solid defensively overall too.

    Not so good: Chance creation was still pretty iffy, both our goals were fairly lucky. We happened to get the win but this was a draw on most nights I think. Dropping Pozuelo still doesn't make any sense to me.

    Yeah pretty good summary.

    I dont care if Pozo needs to rest all week, he has to go 90 in these games.

    Yeeesss!! The Layrea sub changed that game. I’ve given a Vanney crap tonight but cudos to him for that move. Although it has to be said, why doesn’t Layrea start ahead of Auro every game. The Brazilian offers little and was at fault at Montreal’s goal. However, I’ll enjoy the victory for now, but questions still remain over leaving Pozeulo out tonight, Vanney played with fire there

    I totally called it. He saved his TAM wingers to surprise Montreal.

    While the internet was going nuts over Pozuelo not starting, Montreal was also going nuts. The speed on the wings and the different style of play was constantly creating overloads that Montreal had no answer for. Then Vanney surprises them again by putting in Pozuelo at the half, nullifying their half time adjustments, and they weren't prepared to double team him leaving him with room to operate.

    To be fair the overloads may not have been so clear on TV but it was pretty clear in person.

    So Vanney's plan worked almost perfectly, except for a typical defensive breakdown leading to a goal against that should not have happened. Risky plan for sure, but TFC is now in a playoff position and Montreal isn't.

    Lol. If you were watching in person you would have seen it.

    It was a risky plan, but all that matters is the win.
