    If we think our team did nothing in the offseason....

    Nicest stadium in MLS. So I have been told.

    Doubt Piatti plays a big part after missing the target of playing Weds. If he is not in the 18 for tomorrow’s friendly I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s out v SJ altogether.

    Whoa, I can't believe the season is starting already.

    2-1 for the good guys.

    An important game as many teams are young and really giving it a shot , which can only be great entertainment. San Jose may not be a contender, hence ALL games are important . We are relying on a past formula and everyone is older . It will be interesting in the season if we have the speed . San Jose with Almeyda as coach will have that . I'm worried , is it me, it seems our relied on starters are all fragile maybes? That's a losing season if so . Where's the juice ? Josie , yes when in the groove , Pozuelo always....Osario (has to move up to his pay class and carry us) . Love to see some young blood given the chance , that's our speed .

    Pozo rested at last. I hope Almeyda tries to man mark him.

    Westberg
    Auro-Gonzalez-Mavinga-Morrow
    Delgado - Fraser
    Pozuelo
    Endoh - Altidore - Osorio

    Piatti comes on in the second half along with Gallardo and Laryea.

    Could see that.

    Or they start with speed - so Gallardo and Piatti first, then go more defensive after if they get the lead.

    Him and Piatti and Oso and maybe Gallardo. We have some mazy players this year.

    Assuming Piatti isn't fully fluid yet with the first team, I'd maybe go with

    Laryea - Gonzalez - Mavinga - Morrow
    -----------------fraser ---
    --------Pozuelo----Osorio-----------------
    DeLeon--------------------Gallardo
    --------------Altidore

    Maybe bring in Achara late for DeLeon or Altidore (apparently he can play wide and inside), Piatti for Gallardo.

    Or as we're on the road we could play more conservatively.

    Laryea - Gonzalez - Mavinga - Morrow
    ----------Delgado----Osorio--------------
    DeLeon------Pozuelo--------Gallardo
    --------------Altidore

    Piatti maybe out for the next 2 games, already looking not great for him and being a useful player if he is this injury prone

    Sooo we are going to go into this without 2, maybe 3, of our DP / Tam players.

    Underdogs again...I kinda like it.

    West conference road game - no expectations. Get a point, we be doing fine.

    We ever get any idea of what is going on with Gallardo? He hasn't played since the first preseason game. With Jurgen Damm potentially coming to MLS as a TAM player, those funds could of been better spent if Vanney has no plans for him.

    Gallardo isn't even a tam player anymore. He was only a tam player cause his purchase fee. His salary is fairly cheap but yeah he better do something this year.

    Damm is like Tos Rickets. All speed and fuck all end product.

    One of the most frustrating wingers in world football.

    But there is something fun about the Ricketts, ODuros and Damms.... its like seeing them explode with speed, hoping for something and and deep down knowing that they are going to implode in some way not yet known. Just plain fun.

    But effort always there!!

    will Mullins start up front? I am guessing yes.

    Auro Omar Mavinga Morrow
    fraser osorio
    pozeulo

    (or)

    ( fraser
    osorio pozuelo )

    gallardo Mullins shaff

    Off the Bench - Marky for Fraser 60 minutes, Achara for Mullins, DeLeon for Shaff. There is going to be competition for minutes this year. Laryea deserves minutes, Endoh deserves minutes

    For some unknown reason (that TFC journos could ask about if they still existed), Gallardo has once again hardly featured in the pre-season games. I would guess Endoh starts over him?

    Yes, you are probably right. its a bit weird to be honest. Might also mean Deleon gets the start.

    I actually like our line up when we have at least one of Jozy or Piatti playing. Question obviously is can Fraser play with Oso and Poz or does he need Marky to sit in with him.

    I'm going to guess:

    ----------------Westberg----------------
    --Auro--Gonzalez--Mavinga--Morrow--
    -----------------Fraser------------------
    ---Pozuelo----------------Osorio-------
    --Gallardo-----Altidore---Shaffelberg--

    With subs from Delgado, Laryea and Deleon (or maybe Achara!)

    My wife and I booked spots at the viewing party. I will likely go unless something comes up. Haven't been to a TFC FO run event for a while. When talking to my wife about it she asked if any players were going to be there....I smiled at stared at her for a while then it hit her....away game viewing party so the team is away....haha...too funny.

    In your wife's defence, I recall some injured players going to those event. Might see Bradley.

    Yeah I told her that. You never know if some players that are not making the trip might show up at this thing. I thought at the time she was thinking more of the "After 90 Minute" party days though and she admitted that she was....I know the way my wife thinks after so many years...LOL....but you have a good point.

    I have two tickets to the viewing party that I now can't use. Send me a message if you'd like them.

    Don’t they have your name on their list and you just show ID or something at the door? I got the email confirmation but didn’t see anything about actual tickets.
