Our grip on 6th place is pretty tenuous at this point.  We're one spot ahead of NE; tied on points with 29, but we get the tiebreaker (which isn't GD I guess since they have a better GD).  The bigger problem may be Nashville, who's in 8th place, one point back with 28.  But they have a game in hand.

 

I'd say put your strongest lineup out there for the next two games to hold onto 6th place.  

 

First tiebreaker is wins, to which we have the 8-7 advantage on New England. 

 

I agree. I wouldn't bet on us securing the 6th seed, mainly because of Nashville. They have the game in hand, as you mentioned, and while they don't have an easy schedule to close out their season, I also wouldn't classify it as brutal: vs. Chicago, vs. Dallas, @ Orlando. I also wouldn't bet on us securing all 6 points in our remaining games.

Nashville ties at home v Fire, so we are 6th, ahead of Revs and Nashville on the wins tiebreaker.

Unless we beat PBFC, we arent finishing any higher than 6th, they are on 33 pts, 29 for RBNY with 2 matches remaining.

Think points are going to be tough to come by with this match and home vs. Toronto. If they get anything more than 4 points Id be surprised.

Chicago can no longer catch us, we're guaranteed 9th.

 

Montreal can only catch us if they win out and we lose out.

Today is not the penultimate date of the regular season, which ends on November 8. It is not even the penultimate game day, as there are 5 games on Wednesday.
The writer also confuses shtick/act with stick/criticism.
IMO neither fits here, where it is teasing.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I believe it's do or die for Tetteh.  Wonder if our new coach is in the USA?

I'll probably wait until halftime to see how we look before I make a bet. If we're playing decently and we're still tied, I'll probably go for the bet.

Would have swapped tetteh for omir, but cant have it all.

Does tetteh look like a decent soccer player this game?
