    Do you actually have anything to contribute about the upcoming game against Vancouver?

    People who are dumb enough to say this are too dumb to understand that symptoms will show up almost two weeks later. Let me spell this out for you: you won't know you have it for 2 weeks and you'll be bumping into all kinds of people. "Testing is key" - you're gonna go get tested daily and expected other nitwits to do the same?

    Looking forward to seeing if Ayo can pickup where he left off during the tourney down in Florida. Thing is he and Jozy have very similar makeups, big lumbering types who can boss there way in the box. But on the other hand having them both out together , not really sure if that works all that well, they would not be very complimentary to each other. I will be interested to see how the Whitecaps stack up with all their player returning who sat out the tournament. It is going to be an interesting next couple weeks for the Reds.

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

    Is Pravda basically anything Gareth Wheeler writes or is involved in?

    I really want to like this podcast. I took in most episodes but now im officially done. Wheeler should be the interviewer allowing the experts Dunfield or guest to talk. Instead we get Wheeler making declarations while Dunfield chuckles. Then lets bring in Jerome who has nothing too offer to kill an extra few minutes.

    well looks like White Caps sold Hwang, thought he would have done better for them there.
    Looking forward to the game tomorrow and see what kind of lineup we put out there. At this point I would rather see Ayo than Jozy up front.

    Kloke and Buffery on Twitter just posted saying that Akinola is not likely as he just returned to training. Hopefully Jozy is ready to go.

    Doyle makes a joke on the MLS website about us not being able to keep any forward healthy for longer then 90 minutes...

    Having Altidore is always going to keep that number low.

    No doubt. Achara's injury was an accident but Ayo's injury is very concerning though. At the time it was presented as a little knock and hamstring soreness and weeks later it is still a thing. I hope this isn't a long term deal because he was riding some serious momentum.

    I'm ecstatic we found a way to play amongst ourselves here in Canada and keep things as controlled as possible.

    Can't wait to see some different starters this match. I hope for some big changes if there's any repeat of last match.

    This is also a tournament where winning is going to mean a heck of a lot more then usual, especially at home. 2 losses in the first 2 games & we are in a deep deep hole. Anything less then 4 points and we are going to have to win a few away. I think 12 points might win this thing.

    Sounds like maybe Morrow and Akinola are still out?

    -----------------Westberg----------------
    --Auro--Gonzalez--Mavinga--?Laryea?--
    -------------Bradley/Fraser (at 60)------
    --Delgado------------------Osorio-------
    --------------Pozuelo--------------------
    ---Piatti-----------------Altidore----------

    Thoughts?

    I think the MLS is Back tournament proved to most people that Greg Vanney will never replace Michael Bradley, no matter how poorly he is playing or how exhausted he looks.

    Ha ha! I was hoping Vanney learned from the last game, but you may be right. These games are pretty close together and we've got to get some minutes to any potential Bradley replacement--and I'm a HUGE fan of Bradley--we're almost always better with him on the field, but not that last game--clearly, and understandably, out of gas.

    Bradley was great in the first & second games playing better then he has since 2017

    & then fell off a cliff

    Good with rest. Start him in this one and then sit him for the Friday game.

    Fully expecting a win tonight. Gonna say 3-1 TFC. Altidore, Osorio and Piatti finally all get on the score sheet.

    I have no idea what to expect. I expected us to be way better against NYCFC. When I saw that lineup I knew we were in trouble but was hoping for the best. Bradley was gassed but not subbed out. Mavinga looked like he didn't really give a shit. Everyone was moving slow. Was just a mess. I expected more. I would expect a win tonight but until I see the lineup and the effort I don't trust my expectations for this club right now.

    ^ Agreed. Prior to the shutdown I thought our team was relatively stable and trending towards making a good playoff run.

    After the shutdown Iím less sure. Very hard to tell what is reflecting the quality of our squad and what has to do with personal circumstances / things outside of the game, etc...

    In today's environment a low quality team thatís managed to train properly through COVID and isnít caught up in other unnecessary drama could give an (otherwise) superior side a run for its money.

    I'm hoping for a much better result than the last time out. They were battling so many things during that tournament with the heat, two early games, plus a wake up call for a morning game that got delayed ( just more stress to get ready that early for nothing). This all on top of covid and the surge in cases where they were located.

    I'm hoping they are a bit more at ease and will feel better playing at home tonight. Much better conditions here and for now a bit safer with only the Canadian teams and less travel.

    We will see how it goes but I've got my eye on Bradley, and see how OG responds too how tired he looked.

    Glad we have a few more matches to watch with something on the line. Let's enjoy this while we can because it's going to be very difficult logistically for the 3 Canadian teams to complete the MLS regular season when this is done.
