One thing that stuck out to me about the NYC game was how good the stadium seats looked in red. Even with a big chunk of fans still on the path/tailgate/bar, the stadium looked much better due to the red t-shirts hanging on the back of each empty chair.

Any chance that the team will replace the blue seats with red ones? Can't imagine it would be cheap. Maybe they can install only the seat backs and leave the bottoms of the chairs intact at blue?

Doubt it since the other RBAs are all blue.  Would look nice though.


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.

They can't be bothered to replace the $2 missing aisle number badges.    Pisses me off when newbs show up and need to be told which row is which because the damn numbers fell off two years ago.

How about we just fill the seats with people wearing the proper colors.

We could barely fill the stadium, on derby day, with no rain and weather in the 70s.  Tell me how we are going to fill the stadium every other day?

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

still perplexed by the turn out. 

I realize 2PM is not ideal time. 

Also, why was it 2PM in order to show in Europe?

I thought it was to cut down on drunken idiocy before and after the game.

Joel Campbell, Nacho Pussetto, and others of their ilk.

Never thought of it, but this makes sense as well. And I love that Europe got to see a team get thrashed. 


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello and Mike Vallo

MLS has been scheduling rivalry games earlier in the day because is this, but also US tv time slots. If they get a chance to go on big Fox or ESPN(1), theyll take it.

I think SEA-PDX has a game a year or so ago at 11am PT just for the time slot.

I feel like our home games should be 7pm on Saturday nights only, but, whatevs.

All for signing Campbell & Pussetto, but TH14 didnt even sell a lot of seats & hes a way bigger name. Just sign the guys to make the team better, worry less about what it will do for fans.

They say a lot of Ironbound ppl are from Minas Gerais. If that town has a Kaku, sign him too, but I am ok with Campbell and Pussetto too.

Since we traded Felipe to focus on Adams, Im now a lot more worried about Adams leaving this year with no one on his level to fill the void.

I thought it looked awful.  Red is harder on the eyes than blue.

The red shirts draped over blue seats just made it look like Orlando purple.
