    Default MLS iS Back Round of 16 - TFC vs NYCFC Sun. 26 July 8:30 PM - An Empire State of Mind



    __

    Have at it as TFC takes on NTCFC once again in some post-season football during these uncertain times.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    I would have liked to see Vancouver/TFC for an all Canadian match up but I guess I don't mind to see TFC knocking NYCFC out of another cup game. Night game this time. Let's see some offense and hopefully Mavinga and Gonzalez can play a full 90 so we are not messing with the backline part way into the game.

    Haha yeah no kidding. Have to pray that it never goes to penalties and also we need to make sure NYCFC doesn't get any red cards because that always affects TFC negatively for some reason too. That could be the worst scenario for TFC....NYCFC gets a red so goes into a bunker to play for the draw then goes to penalties. That is a nightmare night for TFC fans.

    Piatti hasn't missed a penalty since 2009 according to the internet. He's also only made 4 of them since that time fwiw.

    Good to know but we would also have to ask ourselves will he be on the field at the 90th min if he starts....probably not. Also, is there extra time in these games or straight to PK's? That is one part of the rules I did not look into yet.

    Straight to PKs


    Pozuelo also has 5 goals in 4 games against NYC, including 3 penalties.

    Laryea doing a bang up job in my books (on both sides). Think he’s starting before end of the season but maybe hasn’t cemented the starters role just yet.

    I actually prefer Lareya coming in as a sub winger, but with Morrow out we have no choice, he is doing quite well as a defender on the left, we don't want to fart around with the Spanish connection on the right side, would like to see Piatti bag a goal or two. I really liked his strike from outside of the box against Montreal, again my bane is TFC not wanting or incapable of striking outside of the box, trying to be a bit too tricky and fucking it up.

    I bet if there is a penalty situation, Sean Johnson simply stands in the middle against Pozuelo.

    I do feel obliged to state that while Auro Jr speaks espanyol he comes from Brazil where they falas la língua português (apologies to anyone who speaks the language - i do not!). That group has been amazing though so I completely agree that we want to keep them together.

    Then Pozuelo will do this. Plus there was another one where he went hard to the right. Maybe that was even against NYC?

    Although the first Panenka against Johnson was delicious. About the slowest one I've ever seen.

    IMO that's a BS rule for any serious tourney or Cup style competition.
    Should be 2 x 15 extra minutes.

    It's because of the heat. I would not be surprised to see the 2022 WC in Qatar adopting the same rule

    You cannot just practice penalties for a few days. That is exactly what got England into trouble with PKs for decades.

    This is a fabulous book on the subject
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OQS4E22...ng=UTF8&btkr=1

    In Italy, Spain and Germany, PKs are taught, practiced every day, monitored, and personalized. In all club training. It has been that way for decades.

    You want to be good at this as an institution? You have to start five years before you need to be good at it.

    Oh, I agree with you ensco.

    But this team notoriously does not take pens seriously and gets antsy if it goes to them.

    My memory is they practiced them once before the 3 MLS cup finals and not once at all before the CCL final or the Voyageurs final of last year. Even if you do it once, you are better off mentally then going into it cold.

    I love NYCFC games. Lots of goals and we usually win.

    Also expect Pozuelo to have a good match against NYCFC.

    We're struggling to think of a bar patio with good screen/TV to watch it. Does anyone have any ideas?
