I assume only the lower bowl will be open for this match. For some reason I kind of like the vibe when only the lower level is open for these cold CCL games. I hope they have all the concessions open though. There was at least one time where half the stuff in the arena was closed, that was BS. Had to walk to search around the whole stadium just to grab a pair of beers.

They will have maybe three registers open, and run out of hot chocolate and coffee 10 minutes before game time

Got my tix, better seats than my usual, but I'm sure I'll be able to sit in my usual if I want.    Now I have to find someone to sit in the friggen arctic chill with me.

Well get a better picture in the next few preseason matches but pointless speculation is what the internet is for!!

 

BWP

Royer - Kaku - Muyl

Davis - Rza

Lade - Long - Parker - Murillo

Robles

 

Bench: Louro, Tarek, Duncan, CCJ, DE7, Epps, White

 

Attacking bench looks quite weak imo...

 

I think well rest Taxi, Beze, Valot not worth the travel and rushing them back

Offense off the bench HAS looked weak for 2+ Years now.

Well you're not wrong, ha.

 

I think once we get Valot back and healthy he will raise the quality on the RW position, but I have probably higher hopes for him than most. I like everyone, have't seen Epps play in our system so who knows maybe the FO saw something they like in him.

 

But yeah when were hoping for Valot or Epps or Ivan and ATL has Barco on the bench it's hard not to get dejected.

Yes, away goals (just not in the final, for some reason):

I think that's the same use of the away goals tiebreaker as the Libertadores.

Lade and Muyl stil in the starting lineup...this offseason was worse than I thought. We will get by Pantoja with this lineup but Santos is another story. Not feeling very confident about this run.

i can't believe lade is still on this roster, let alone the starter on day 1 of our new season.  do they expect taxi to never get injured again / never miss time for the national team??

I'm fine with Lade as a utility/chemistry guy getting <10 starts/year. Just sucks when a couple of those end up happening in elimination games.

Agreed. Somehow Lade is still our backup LB (and RB)? when both of those guys at MINIMUM will be out for a few weeks with international duty, let alone injuries. I thought Tarek would have been ahead of him on he depth chart...I guess we will see. I would predict Lade starts this game though. We know how strict RBNY is about players "knowing the system".
