Chicago blows. Old, immobile team got less dangerous when they dealt Accam. That said, Nikolic is capable of putting one away so hopefully we keep playing well.

has his euro snob allure wore off already? I guess Ibra is the new flavor or the week.

Doubt that there were even 5K vs. Montreal.

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

Probably only around 10k today but I actually prefer garbage crowds. Makes getting in and out so easy lol. No lines inside either.

Just hope attendance doesn't get much lower. MLS will eventually not be against moving a team out of here.

And for the people who think it's about marketing, it's not. Has nothing to do with that outside of giving tickets away. Just a cynical sports fanbase with a lot of other teams and sports to get interested in and have no interest in embracing a team in a league that isn't number 1, let alone top 5 in the world.

MLS will eventually hit in this area. We aren't there yet...US national team failing really pushed that back too.

Downstairs less than half full, outside 101/102. Upper deck almost empty.

Its also crazy to think that there are half a dozen teams doing worse than us based on announced attendance.  I think our average attendance will go up in the coming weeks (the NYCFC game will definitely boost it).

Lol there was more than 5k but yeah that's an April crowd for you. Even worse than usual really, and don't expect that to change much against the fire. It's a dead horse thing, just move my comments lol. Mets are on fire and tickets still are dirt cheap and readily available..it's an area thing

The actual turnstile counts are a deeply hidden secret. I can only eyeball the mostly empty and few half-filled sections, and estimate crowds.
It is going to take a disgruntled insider to leak the numbers and reveal the shocking truth.

4-2-2-2, I think now. Same lineup as last week, although I wouldn't mind DEJr up top with BWP.
