    Default MLS Match Day 12 - Orlando @ TFC Sat May 14 3:08 pm - You'll be free indeed





    28 degrees is the forecast for the city that day

    Sure, the team isn't very good but you can't tell me we all haven't been looking forward to a warm day near the lake to watch a game

    The burning question before anything else is who is in, whose out and will we see another short term signing or two? Also Kobe and Steffen have maxed out there short term deals for the season so will they potentially be signed to a home grown first team deal like Themi was last week? Lots could change over the next couple days, we simply do not know what the team will look like come Saturday. Time will tell.

    I am enjoying seeing the younger players get a look in - suspect its challenging for the coaches given it isn't just one or two, but they did OK v Vancouver. Admittedly, Vancouver is terrible. Still.

    Orlando has a lot of speed - just not much scoring capability. Another team who likes to win 1-0.

    Antonio Carlos is out for Orlando tomorrow. He is one of the best CBs in MLS, in my opinion.

    Oso and Noble also out too. Hope it is not too serious for Oso, seems to be dragging its feet.

    My conspiracy self says maybe Oso is sitting a couple for tightness and maybe he wants BB to recognize that Michael doesn’t have the transitional pace to start any more. Abs are a little sore, timing is right….

    Probably not, I know.

    Add a solid DM to prevent the team being caught out of defensive shape and 80% of our problems disappear.

    It is a great day for a game. Been 3 years since we have enjoyed a summer game. Going to enjoy the weather and the feeling.

    The lineup. No Pozuelo and a rough looking bench.

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the summer of Perruzza gets going on the first summer matchday of the season.

    Even when we are crap, people want to see a game. Expect 20k plus today.

    Let's see if Priso can get to the 10 minute mark today.

    I have decided that the only way to enjoy this year is to be slightly drunk.

    Through the anthems, it seems to be working.

    4-3-3 like TSN showed or would a 4-4-2 withe perruzza and Jesus up front be more likely?

    Orlando only starts one American. I wonder if their fans get upset about the lack of domestic players?

    Am I going to start hating on PRO this early in the game? Really?

    Just once, I want an MLS game that doesn't hang on the ref mistakes.

    Kara is an absolute monster of a man.

    I wonder if we'll deal Poz.

    He isn't positionally disciplined and he isn't fast anymore. He's had more good games than bad, but I can see Bradley seeing him as part of the reason we're so poor in transition.

    He might consider his trade value on a deal year and try to move him.

    That was a little concerning. They had an obvious press situation after the turnover and Peruzza had to call Nelson up to press properly.

    Our young guys are pretty naive. Nelson should've been guiding that fullback to his outside foot by pressing tight, instead he shoves him in the back in clear view of the ref.

    If he forces him to his outside foot, the guy has to either boot it down the line or cut it back to the goalie, at which point, Jimenez is a threat to intercept it.

    Geez McNauhgton did brilliantly there. Dummied staying in cover, then closed and blocked him.

    To anyone who says this team means nothing in this town. Every section is 2/3 rds full.

    Sure the team is crap.

    But this game means something in this city.
