Have to agree with those saying none of us should travel for this game.

We all want to but it's a not smart move!!!

Looks like we could legally travel to Ohio,

but would have to quarantine 14 days on return.

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

It's crazy times.. It's better to be safe..


Just gotta stay optimistic...

Metro have definitely improved since they've last played Cbus...

There's plenty of reason to be hopeful in that alone...



They have had gradually more pressure packed meaningful games and steadily have stepped it up...

Carnell has more time to game plan and hopefully he sees flaws in Cbus that match Metro strengths and teaches the guys what to do and that way they can understand what will happen during the game and take the initiative and be ahead of the game and it'll be just muscle memory... But more than anything I want to see intensity..

I like that both White and Barlow were given a chance together and that it worked and that they both scored. Gives them confidence for this huge playoff game. They'll need it and have to Crank it up even more and shoot hard and sooner and try to make their goalkeeper play lights out.. Eventually one or two go in....

That along with if the back play well and CM can win second chances and get the ball forward cleanly I like our chances...

Royer will have to show up, Clark has to take shots, Valot even has just pick a side of the goal and let it rip.. Not every shot has to be perfect just pick a side and make the keeper work...

I think if they play faster, move the ball sooner to your open teammate and get it in the box and fight for lose balls and shoot and shoot often... They can definitely win
.

They have to come out in a frenzy... And finish the first half and start the second half in a frenzy... They really do.. There's no excuse they have to leave it all out there
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

In NY under governor Cuomo, we are allowed in any state for under 24 hrs w/o quarantine as of right now. I may fly to OH to see this match and fly home the same day if the match is early enough in the day. Thinking of driving to BWI airport near Baltimore and flying southwest nonstop to Columbus.

Are tickets being sold to away fans?

I dont know if they will be. Probably not because of the limited capacity. However I would probably buy tickets on the secondary market or try to get a ticket right from the Crew themselves.

Columbus has been very spotty as well lately. Since Oct: 3 wins, 4 losses, a couple of draws. They did do well at home, with all 3 home wins, but overall they greatly cooled off after hot start, and 4 out of total 5 losses are in that stretch. Who knows, maybe we got a shot here.

Given where we were coming out of the Orlando tournament, and how awful we looked before the managerial change, feels like we are playing with house money. Im not sure Id want to play a Red Bull team that has little pressure or expectations. Hopefully we play like a team with nothing to lose.

Definitely playing with house money....

I hope we all can all be optimistic and wish there was a way to let our voices be heard by the players while they prepare for the playoffs.... This week in training will be very important

Is this a home an way type of game? or single game elimination. Cowlumbus seems to have a lot of fire power.

yup.  As long as we have Parker and Long in form with Davis and Yearwood in front of them I'll take my chances against most teams.  We are just at the mercy of Barlow/White finishing or set piece creativity

Kaku will be out, but he was out last game too. Does anyone know why, just coach's decision?
