Episode 87: 15/05/20 #AwesomeFireworksInYourEar

vm_podcast_1400x1400Mark is a game time scratch for this one, but Kristin, Tony and Duncan bravely soldier on without him, cos baby they’re all fireworks. We cover the ‘win’ against Montreal, and the tie in New England as well as look to the upcoming Portland game and just what TFC’s plan might be without Jozy Altidore (hint, it’s still Luke Moore). ┬áDuncan learns the horrible truth about Fanta, Tony imagines ‘Arthur 3’ levels of bad, and Kristin is all over the internet.

This week’s Bitchyblank: After his Miami Vice tribute in New England, for the next game Greg Vanney will dress up as ________ from the 80s.

  1. Hah! I thought you guys were going to break into Captain of Her Heart in the last episode.

    Still believe the fundamentals are the big problem with TFC, not the tactical formation.

    Moore did seem to score with his back-side last year. He was the bong in the bing-bang-bong in the goal scoring sequence last year. This year he has to earn goals, if he can at all.

    Vanney did say after the Revs game that the diamond is what he wants things to evolve to. So get use to the opposition raining the crosses in. Vanney also seems to like the packed defense in the box.

    • packed defence in the box? as opposed to out side and possibly blocking crosses. that’s what we’ve seen recently for sure, early in the season we got a lot of the defence all moving over to the side and leaving creavalle along against meram, or accam, or hagglund against castillo, so a bit of a reaction to that i think, need to find the balance.

      • The packed defense is my observation, sort the inverse of the “kick-it and everyone run” offense that Nelsen and Vanney are fond of employing.

        I also wondered about the fact that the big difference for the Impact’s offensive explosion was Kloppas was not on the sidelines.
