Match in Review (FC Dallas) and Preview (Minnesota United)
Well, how about that! The Vancouver Whitecaps were able to come away with a point despite how it looked at the onset of the match, and after FC Dallas opened the scoring. Shoutout to the writing team this week as AtlantisB and edmondk both obtained a 19 score this match, with AtlantisB edging him out in the 'quotes' tie-breaker.
Speaking of the quotes category. It was a fun category, but hard to score. In the end, listening to the radio interview and post-mach, I came away with Carl Robinson saying "FC Dallas is a good team", "Couldn't be more proud of that effort" (in reference to Nerwinski), and "Couldn't fault the lads" (mainly in reference to Shea). It will be trickier than I expected as I have to listen to the post-match interviews and then try to guess. We will run the contest again this match. You will see that I added in a few new options, so have fun. Again, 1 point for one correct quote guess, 3 points for two correct quote guesses.
On to Minnesota this week. The Caps are still injury plagued, but we did see who would probably be filling in for Kendall Waston while he is on the shelf, Andrew Jacobson. As it is an away match, we expect Robinson to play a little more conservative, so does that mean we see the same lineup as against Dallas? He can't get much more conservative can he? Does Teibert get another run out? Not that he played bad against Dallas, just that he has not been a favourite of Robbo this season (or last). Does Tchani finally see the bench? Does Davies get a crack at it, after another fine performance last match. Maybe he plays in the middle. An away match like this might be a good opportunity for an experiment.
Time to make your predictions!
