If Zizzo was put at CB, might as well try Veron...

I smell...trap game.  Hopefully I'm wrong and we have an offensive outburst.

i'll take 1-0 with no injuries or cards to our guys. BWP scores and we kill the game with possession.

 

curtain gets fired after the press conference if we beat them 3-0 or better.

please kick some butt and no Zizzo at CB

 

 

interesting stats - at the ~25% mark of the season - Over the red line by this date 90% chance of making the playoffs

Since MLS in 2013 began starting the season in early March, not one May 1 front-runner has won the Cup, although two -- Seattle in 2014 and Dallas last year -- have captured the Shield. Four of the last five champions have been sixth or worse when May arrived, and another month of play didn't change a thing.

Let's get this win and do it looking really good that Curtain gets fired.

Why would you want Curtain to get fired? As long as he's HC, PU is going to suck. Much like Ben Olsen coaching D.C. That's 2 teams pretty much guaranteed to finish below us in the table. The more crappy coaches, the better, for our divisional rivals. (Not that PU is a rival)
IIRC, since PU joined MLS, this pair have never both finished higher in the standings in any season, and both have been lower on several occasions.
Last thing we need is a new coach for either, who might turn things around.

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

Philly's going to suck no matter who the manager is.  That organization is a dumpster fire.

This has a "so Metro" loss written all over it.

I'm not a betting man but if I were I'd put it all on Philly for the win.

The last few times we played Philly we didn't match up too well. I'm thinking a loss. Hard to be optimistic when this is the third game we're playing in a week.

Not beating this team would be unacceptable. Losing to them would be an outright disgrace. Give a professional effort and today will be a win.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

We also out-shot them something to the tune of 30-4 in that Open Cup game

Seems we only lose to them when there's no reason we should. See: Open Cup. A game which was a microcosm of everything wrong with our team and a harbinger of things to come.

I'm predicting a humiliating loss which continues to highlight our need to sign a CB and drop Veron.

I guess I'm a pessimist;)

Anyone remember that away game at Chivas years ago that we were 110% supposed to win cause they were so awful? Yeah. Feels like that.
