    Hopefully Gallardo starts or laryea at right wing. Other than that I would leave the lineup the same as last game. Endoh at left wing instead of shaffleburg who should be loaned to the cpl or converted to left back.

    Let's see if TFC can continue their 11 game unbeaten streak, hopefully with a win this time.

    Shaff was our most dynamic player in the first half. He destroyed his opposite number on San Jose.

    Will be interesting to see what Vanney does. Laryea earned minutes. who knows what Gallardo is doing in training? Endoh earned minutes. Who does Fraser replace? Marky?

    I like the formation they played which most of the time looked like a 4-4-2 with Poz under Jozy. It works nicely with the players we have. And shaff Endoh Gallardo Laryea and Nelson all can work within this system. You could also call it a 4-2-3-1.

    I thought it was really interesting that when Poz went off they pushed Marky up and not Oso. Suggests they have confidence in Oso's defensive work.

    Shaff has great energy, pace, and effort but he doesn't have a clue what to do in the box. He is not creative whatsoever. I actually agree Mikmacdo, he should be developed as a LB.

    Agreed. Iíll stick to the assertion heís just not a forward, rather wide midfielder or wingback.

    I'm pretty sure the change was only made at half time because shaff picked up a knock - light hamstring strain, and he was certainly stretching it at the end of the half.

    Pretty sure Vanney said not starting Fraser last game was tactical only based on how SJ plays. Will see if that is the case this weekend I assume.

    I would start Fraser but he didn't look very good on Saturday. Hopefully he hits the ground running with a start rather than a sub.

    He reminds me of a younger Justin Morrow but with a better ability to cross the ball into the box. Let him have a few more chances as winger coming off the bench then start grooming him for LB, which we will eventually need as a Morrow replacement. I think he could do well as LB.

    Do we even know if Shaff can defend?
    Last guy TFC tried to force to convert to LB was Edwards and that experiment didn't go so well for Edwards

    If the formation was a 4-4-2 and Poz was behind Jozy, who was the 2nd striker?

    As for Shaff, he just might be the least technically capable player on the squad. All speed, little skill.

    I viscerally hate these incredibly stupid and unnecessary winter games.

    You cannot play soccer properly when it is this cold.

    I donít want Jozy and Pozo (or anyone) to get hurt. But I hope Vanney only plays those two for 45 minutes.

    Iíd like to know what the league is thinking putting fixtures like this in early March. Strikes me as clueless.

    Would the Texas teams start at noon in the middle of summer?

    Which is interesting as Delgado has tended to be the more defensive minded of the two in the past.

    Amen to that. Why canít we at least have the first three or four games on the road? Iím sure teams in the south would gladly play us now and then play us at home in our summer to escape the heat.

    I suspect that we get these early season home games because we are amongst those teams that have the highest attendance. The league can give us these lousy dates knowing we will still have a decent crowd.

    OK. 4-4-1-1. Which is a 4-4-2 Variation.

    Vanney definitely had the team set up for significant portions of the game as two banks of four, including Shaff Oso Marky Auro; Laryea Oso Marky Auro and Laryea Oso Fraser Auro as the second bank, under Poz and Jozy, Marky and Jozy and Marky and Mullins respectively.

    Until local health authorities make utterances, nobody is doing a thing. Garber has said MLS is relying upon local authorities, not national, to make decisions.


    The only request I would have of MLSE is to make sure the water is warm in the bathrooms and there is a lot of soap. I would hope the 1/3 of guys I see go out of there without washing their hands would think twice but I have my doubts.
