I would love to see Adams matched up against Sacha, but I guess we'll save that for the home game.

Adams will be a go for Saturday, I assume.

I'm guessing he'll be rested for the midweek game.

Saw Kljestan play at NYCFC last week and he looked like himself, still a very dangerous cog in the attack and NYCFC was lucky Orlando has zero talented strikers.

 

Without Dwyer back, we should expecting another resounding 3 points.

Put all the eggs in the champions league basket and rest everyone.

If there are points for the taking in the 2nd half then bring in the big guns off the bench.

Resting everyone is not always good for them. Tyler has already missed one game with the team, you want him to not play with the guys for 2 weeks, then hop into the starting lineup at Chivas?

This... Too many days off can lead to game rust so it's not always a good thing.

 

I'm usually a fan of rotation but you still want guys getting game minutes.  For this game I think it's best to go with a mix of rotation.

Depends on how much he plays with the national team tomorrow, I guess. Definitely wouldn't have him play for 90 minutes on the weekend, then plan on another 90 after travel to Mexico. 45 mins on the weekend would be fine, don't really care whether it's from the start or off the bench.

He will probably start for the US and could go 90. Like I said above; no worries bringing him off the bench vs Disney.

Tyler knows this system inside and out. More reps is always good but Im not worried. Hell Parker and Rzatkowski walked in here and got the job done.

Agreed. It will depend on just how much Tyler plays in the international friendly tomorrow. Given the importance of the CCL Semi... I'm perfectly OK with a Portlandesque lineup. If that means sacrificing league points, so be it.

Escobar got a knock during his game. No word yet how long he's out.

Quad can suck as an injury.  Hope it's a good variety.

 

Had to figure Escobar had a decent shot at starting next to Collin.   Now you go Collin and either Parker or Long.

if you assume that we'll go 5 in the back vs Chivas (Collin, Parker, Long),  then you'll probably want to sit Collin vs Orlando. Instead, I would do Parker/Long/Redding vs Orlando. Maybe Redding plays with a chip on his shoulder.
