i hear what you guys are saying, but if given the choice to play their A squad or their reserves, I would think that our chances are better playing their reserves. There is a reason those guys aren't starting. Sure they are probably better than a lot of MLS starters, but they aren't as good as the Tigres starters. Also they don't have as many competitive minutes as the starters. I don't think we will destroy them or anything, but I do think our chances are better.

Ultimately, the most important thing we can do is advance. I don't give a shit if they bring 18 giraffes as long as we get through.

Tigres second XI is probably better than any MLS team from last year, other than LA at their peak. In other words, given our injury concerns and lack of form especially in front of goal... I think we're still underdogs here. Especially if we can't keep a clean sheet.

Very much this.

Although watching 18 giraffes play football would be entertaining in its own right.

Soooooooo bad. Would probably need to save for a possible final as there is no way in hell I would miss that. Plus that way we can try El Rey Del Cabrito to see which is better!


Yeah, I'm in the same boat most likely. :(


I have mentally prepared my wife for the possibility that I might be doing this. I'm still alive, so I consider that a 'maybe' :-).
