    Due for a result at Foxboro. I'd take a draw, given our historical record with this fixture.

    What kind of lineup does Vanney unleash, maybe he goes for the surprise attack and calls up an entire 11 from TFC2.

    Benezet Bradley Poz
    Gallargo Jozy Shafft

    Bench: Bono, Oso, Auro, Delgado, DeLeon, Moor

    Westberg
    Auro/OG/Mavinga/Morrow
    Bradley/Delgado
    Pozuelo
    Gallardo/Jozy/Benezet

    Subs:
    DeLeon for Delgado
    Laryea for Auro
    Moor/Osorio for Benezet or Gallardo (if winning/losing)

    Auro-Omar-Mavinga-morrow
    ———-Bradley————-—
    —-Deleon-Pozuelo
    Gallardo-Jozy-Benezet

    Osorio needs to be first sub off the bench. Laryea can sub in for Gallardo if he cant go the full 90. I would like to see the Shaff come in for Benezet to provide a spark.

    Gil-Bou is hands down the most underrated duo in MLS. This isn't the same NE from the first couple months of the season; TFC are in real tough here. Let's hope whatever statement Vanney was trying to make with the Poz benching is finished.

    Their wins in the last couple of months have come mostly from lower teams, VCWC, CF, OCSC, Cincinnati, I know they’re better(edit:than they were), but still more afraid of their pitch than the club.

    If you are going that way it’s gotta be 4-1-3-2 and for me it is then Gallardo Poz Oso in the 3 and Benezt/ Jozy in the 2

    Lets hope Poz is on form. It’s really dipped recently. Not through lack of effort, I don’t think, but it has. Since he turned blonde as others have said

    On the shit plastic pitch Im totally OK with starting Poz on the bench again... He seems obviously tired and that shit field could end his season.

    Agreed. All this talk about Poz's performances recently but we have to remember he finished a full season overseas then came here and kept playing for almost a full MLS season so far. Probably needs even more rest than he is getting. Only the team staff and the player himself would know that. Look at what happened to our team with short/limited rest between MLS Cup and the CCL in 2017/2018. Everyone was totally done by the end of the 2018 season and we missed the playoffs. I am sure it takes a toll with non stop training and games.

    If Vanney doesn't play him people will call for Vanney's head, and if Vanney plays him and he plays poorly or he's injured, the same.

    I actually expect Vanney to play him, plastic or not. Resting him for the start against MTL was a calculated tactical risk based on Montreal's slow speed, New England is a different team that doesn't give that option. Hopefully he makes it out without serious damage.

    If Toronto goes ahead Vanney might pull him at the 60 minute mark.

    I could see sitting Pozo at NE.

    Because that would be, like, you know, a reason.

    Does Delgado need to start as Bradley's Shield bearer?

    I can't see Poz sitting the entire game, especially if we're tied or down a single goal. Putting him in for 30 or 45 minutes at the end of the game might minimize the risk or him being chopped down and/or turf related injury while giving solid minutes to help get some points on the board.

    I would actually say the same about Jozy.... Let the kids run the offence for the first half.

    Har har har...

    steve buffery @Beezersun
    Alejandro Pozuelo, who was not in the starting XI for #TFCLive last Saturday, when asked if he expects to start this weekend against New England: "I hope so. I hope. If I don’t, I kill the coach." He was joking ...

    Is there anything stat to backup a lot of your claims that turf is more dangerous? I highly doubt it, sure its ugly but lets not act like they will be playing on glass.

    Yes, there is lots of evidence that turf in general is bad for athlete but specifically the New England turf which is out of date and previously hurt our DP’s

    Does NE have a high injury rate than other teams?

    It just seems like if it were the case especially with the Patriots playing there, they would upgrade the field.

    I thought they actually did upgrade that turf last year?

    The surface preferences of NFL and soccer are very different. As are the injury types (& frequency), and many other factors.

    I think 4 out of 7 CPL teams play on turf. I haven’t noticed an increased rate of injury.

    The four-year study, titled “Injury Surveillance in Major League Soccer,” gathered injury data from MLS players during the 2013 through 2016 seasons and was published in the August 2019 issue of The American Journal of Sports Medicine.
    A total of 2,174 in-game injuries were recorded during that time, with 1.54 injuries per game occurring on artificial turf and 1.49 injuries per game taking place on natural grass. Researchers found no statistically significant differences between turf and grass for other injuries — including foot, knee, hip and hamstring injuries.
