I haven’t been that invested in a game in a long time. That was fun. All the emotions.
Garbage call. That should pretty much seal it for us.
This guys is making MLS ref’s look pretty damn good!!
What happens when we take the gas off the pedal. Good Ole Gio ball get your goal and drop into a shell and give up a goal
First off, that was a really fun match to attend in person. The Tigres fans brought good energy but the TA was in fine form and drowned out any one else until the very end when "Tigres" somewhat took over "PT" "FC".
Really proud of the fight our boys showed down a man. When Tigres got the second, it really seemed for a moment like it was going to be one way traffic the rest of the match but we dug deep and had some fair chances to equalize. The second yellow was a bummer for the whole thing. The Tigres fans near me were honestly shocked as well.
Anyway, it's been a fun competition IMHO and I hope we make it to the knockouts.
Well that was a very entertaining game and better than many this season. If they played that hard every game, even with the same record, I would be very happy.
Is Yimmi hurt?
I’m holding out hope we get an amazing yellow gift in the second half. This ends 9v9 as the ref tried to “make it up” and in the process pisses everyone off!
Red Card Wedding part Deux!
We need to go to a 4-3-2. Put boli next to mora up top and yimmi in the midfield 3. Sub asprilla for boli and Loria for yimmi
Evander giveth, and he taketh away. Way too sloppy.
Just getting a draw against Tigres would be an accomplishment; not likely given Gignac is starting. Gotta hope for the best but my prediction is Loria is about screw up the attack. And Ivcic starting...that's interesting.
Honestly a miracle we went that long without giving one up. Defense has been very good all night, but you knew something would break.
Our outside backs have been great tonight.
Niezgoda on the breakaway = naptime.
Diego lainez is the player I wanted us to go for as a 10 instead of Evander.
I'm cooking dinner and I turn back to the screen to see Goda in for Mora. Waving the white flag so soon, Gio?
Mora for Goda? Gee Gio, just give them half of the field why don't you?
Goda? Might as well call it
I think they’ve been playing well. Tigres not running over us. Feel like we’re getting CONCACAF’d.
God dunseth is such a tool. He talks crap about Timbers all game. Ffs a red for evander
Wow, what a shot! Messi who?
Our MF doesn't look up to the task, so we needed that!
Another random Providence Park question, my friend left her bag in the bag check tent last night. Having a hard time figuring out who to call about this. Any ideas?
So I’m trying to figure it out, but does Evander miss the next game? Or do red cards and card totals reset after the first round?
Bingham sent off?
Does anyone think that maybe we should not have Blanco in this late? I'd like a point but does anyone really think the Quakes are going to beat Tigres? Even if Tigres plays at half speed? And shouldn't we try to preserve Seba's legs for the rest of the season?
Mosquera was MIA on that play. Still, he's better than what we've got in reserve. Sucks to have non existent depth.
If anyone knows how to coach these guys to be more productive on they get to the 18, please feel free to send in your resume to Grabavoy.
Welp the lead was nice while it lasted. Could have gone into the locker room on a high and now Tigres has equalized and a costly yellow. This coaching staff seems incapable of coaching us not to make dumb mistakes.
We are making too many mistakes in our defensive end. It's going to cost us if that doesn't stop.
12 subs listed on the roster on MLS website?!?!?
Lots of Tigres supporters here...
