Yep. We need to win this and get a draw in Montreal to guarantee us the home game.

We need 6 points. If we only get 4, TFC can overtake us as they are only a point behind right now.

You are correct, thought they were sitting on 45 points for some reason.

4 may still be enough, but we'll need help from Chicago (maybe) or Columbus (unlikely). And still obviously need to do our part vs DC next week.

TFC also has the Canadian Championship against Montreal on Wednesday, so possibly a little fatigue from schedule congestion, depending on how they roll their lineups.

like the attitude

 

“I feel right now, everything we need to do, we need to do that with urgency,” left back Kemar Lawrence said. “We need to be aggressive. And we need to stamp our class to show people that when you play us that we will run you over.”

Would actually be on board with Taxi being captain if he wasn't hurt or away from the team so much. 

 

Hate having a keeper as captain even with Robles being a very good leader.

Absolutely.

Also, I havent seen this on here yet, so I'll post it here, but Jamaica just hit #50 in the FIFA rankings which means he's now eligible for a work permit in England. That's an offseason concern, but something to keep in mind.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Let him go with best wishes and then play Tarek/Tolkein.

Maybe yesterday saw the winning formula for New York....

Royer has been the MVP so start him in his best spot LW and RZA has the best distribution skills out of the CMs so start him at the tip of the 3 man CM Triangle with Davis and Cassares.. When Davis is on point it makes a huge difference. Sims at RW and Barlow or White start at CF and then have the Big guns in Kaku and BWP come on around min 60-65...

Duncan looked great at RB Long has been a Allstar...

Beat the scum!
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Problem is he hasnt been on point for 90 minutes all season.

I thought we looked better when Davis came off and Kaku came on.

Have we seen a triangle of CCJ Rza Kaku this year?

would like to see a CCJ RZA Kaku together and playing well.

RZA has been inconsistent but put together a few good games here in the last week.  Hoping it keeps up.

I think that was more a function of Kaku being an improvement offensively than Rza necessarily being better than Davis. Not too fussed either way between Rza and Davis, but CCJ and Kaku both need to be starting. Kaku is obviously good as a supersub, but that's not a luxury we can afford in every game - hopefully he's fully fit for the remainder of the season.

 

Also worried about Rza's stamina if he's asked to play 90 mins (he's flagged a couple of times late in games). Having him off the bench for whoever is getting tired is the best way to go, I think.

Sort of, the 4-3-1-2 that Armas rolled out for a few games recently had CCJ and Rza ahead of Davis with Kaku playing pretty high up field. I don't believe we've seen those three line up in the 4-2-3-1 yet though, and my guess is that is the formation we're using for the rest of the year to accommodate Sims.

 

Rza always looks great so long as he's not playing a deep-lying 6

we need to put teams away by going up by 2 (or 3)  and then put RZA and Myul on to shut them down
