fans will chant about how much they hate dc.


Well, we do!

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

Torn on starting BWP or Mathius

Home opener will mean a BWP start.

Play the starters. Tuesday to Saturday turnaround i not that short considering they had a week between Santos games. Start the home slate off right with 3 points against a bottom feeder.

This should resemble last year's home opener in the scoreline. This is a very, very bad team.

Man this place is kind of a bummer right now. Rightfully so I guess. 

 

I'm gutted about last night, but I guess my expectations weren't so high to begin with; I don't think anyone in MLS is up to the level needed to win that competition yet. 

 

I'm excited to get rolling in the league and be out in Harrison for what looks like a beautiful afternoon. We're going to have a good team this year, as we have been spoiled to have for basically a decade now. Good enough to finally win the whole thing? I dunno, maybe not. Like everyone else I'm not thrilled that we still haven't filled that 3rd DP slot, but it's still hard for me not to get excited about being back for another season.

This is kind of a crazy take when Toronto was a blown sitter away from winning last year, and only lost on penalties.

Can we cheer on the players while simultaneously booing management? How would that work?

Yay tifo I guess.


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.

If red bull converted on their sitters then we would of advanced. Neither team played good defense. Only difference was that santos finished and rbny didnt.

If bwp does not score in the next two games then I am going to start to get nervous.

In 2016, BWP had zero goals until the 8th game. He ended the season with 25.

Then again, that was a few years ago and BWP is now 34.

There is a 100% chance that, whatever it is, the TIFO will be better than the malfunctioning, Bird Box TIFO that the Third Fail unfurled at their home opener.
