we should have Sims meet us in LA a la Parker v TIjuana.  

 

start DE7 if healthy on the wing with Murillo behind him.  Any Myul updates?

 

during TFC telecast, graphic said "groin". those take time. can't rush him back.

Isn't groin what caused BWP to miss so much time?

Muyl would be very useful in this game.  Shame he is likely not ready.

Muyl is much younger, shouldn't take him as long as BWP to heal, all things equal.

He may have long balls, which adds to the groin injury recovery time.

Ivan or Fernandez will prob start in RM.

I would be shock in Sims is with the team in LA. If I had to guess, he is prob adjusting in the metropolitan area or waiting for Visa.

Sims ... prob ... waiting for Visa.


Would he have to wait in the UK for a work visa?
Can he come as a tourist, then convert to a worker?

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

He could come but cant work. If there is evidence of work then he can get deported.

Excited for this game.   Unsure why.  we appear to be outclassed.  But there is a feeling of optimism.  I think we will be blown out if we don't execute but thats it.  Maybe its because i have no idea how good LAFC is because i have never watcher a full game of theirs.

 

I don't feel they are scared. 

 

Start BWP!

If we sit back and absorb pressure, we'll get run the fuck over. If we press them and rely on our D to win 1v1 battles (tantalizing matchup between healthy Kemar and Vela) then maybe we'll surprise them.

I have little faith Armas Will get the tactics right - we'll probably come out with a 5-4-1 with Bwp in midfield. After going down 2 goals we'll make an adjustment that is too little too late.

Agree with this.  Its on him to figure out how to get the best out of Brian White and BWP.  Cant just be a one for one switch.  They are both dangerous.  Play both.

Looks like same lineup as last week. Not convinced that buckmaster should be in there for Murillo. If LAFC has any sense, they'll move Vela over to that side and skin him alive
