I don't really get that (of course each to their own). Pick a strong message and go through with that, and spread love around season. It seems to get watered down otherwise, to me at least.

North End united, is that ones with all the sponsors?

The text on the banner almost feels like a riff on our SJ away message from this year, too. Almost certainly coincidental, though, given that almost nobody saw that display and it's not a particularly unique message.

"THIS IS WHERE OUR HEART LIES" vs. "WHERE IS THE HEART?"

Is that supposed to be an MLS cup in the center of the cards?

HAHAHAHAHAHA WOW!!!

i understand getting an idea for a display from another country, like how we did "Tonight we go all in" in comparison with Real Madrids' "Todo Al Blanco" but to damn near identically copy another groups display in the same league! wow....LAME

From the other angle that I saw during the live broadcast, it's a heart shape.

It's more likely coincidental. The use of cards and an image of a supporter holding a scarf aren't exactly unique or original ideas...

Good message, well executed. Text is pretty small though. The heart is more obvious from this angle.

it is way to similar to be coincidental, its not like we did our Cascadia Champ display 10 years ago...its 99.99% identical

Eh, whatever.

If it is, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

If its not, good on them, nice design. :P

I'd side more with finn on this one. Yeah there are similarities, but I don't think it's 100% highway robbery here.

Probably the best display ACB have done, although the heart should have been a different color to stand out better (red?)

I believe so... think I remember seeing something about that on the BS MLS supporters thread a while back.

You all know we would have never done that tifo if la had done it a few months earlier. That's just lazy design work, but good execution. Watch San Jose's gonna do "we hypothesize an uprising" next match
