We can get away with letting TFC use Robles as a shooting gallery for one half.  Absolutely cannot against LAFC.


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.

CCJ all the way

Armas can't motivate guys well but the situation. Will have our guys playing hard. LAFC is the best team in the league and our team knows it. They'll come to play.

Still think we'll lose because we just aren't good enough.

Did anyone see Diego Rossis chip yesterday? Beautiful.

Go RB!


The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

We'll see how we stack up against the league's best. Hopefully we aren't down by 3 in the first half.

We should be competitive. Start BWP and turn the press up to 11.

Cmon we play Liga MX teams in champions league and are defending supporters shield champions. Were down this year, but were not intimidated by anyone in this region. Im confident it will be a good game at least.

LA is unbeaten (9 wins, 1 draw) with a +20 goal difference at home.

We have 3 wins from 11 away games with a -4 goal difference, and we're flying across the country for this.

I hope we can keep it interesting, but I'm not super optimistic about it.

We always play up or down to our opponent. We could steal points here.
This post is dedicated to all the slow defenders of the world. Godspeed! my brothers

4-1 or 5-1 LAFC.

Robles has bailed out the crappy defense a lot this season. Can't do it every game.

If we play like we did in the 2nd half yesterday for 90 minutes, it could go either way. If we play like we did in the first half for any prolonged period of time, LAFC will easily win by a few goals.

Need to turn the press up to 100%. Anything else will lead to lead to a blow out.
