I really like one of LA's chants. The stadium goes quiet and one half of the stadium screams L A and the other half responds with GALAXY. Sounds real nice!
We have one as well. The Famous "Aux Armes" is supposed to be sang by one set of the fans, and replied by the other set of fans. But in MTL, it isn't there yet, so they have the guy on the mic singing it, and the ultras responding instead.

That's very cool, thanks. Makes so much sense.

I wonder, if the 02's grow larger, if it better to increase their size on the same side? or add a GA on the opposite side? Probably many more benefits to keeping them all together I think.

Speaking of which, for anyone who went to the game last week, what was your opinion of the expanded GA. Attendance was down so it was probably not optimal, but did they take advantage of the extra space? or did it dilute their effect?

The impact will struggle a lot with attendance during habs playoffs.

It doesn't look that bad on Admission for saturday. They'll sell some more between now and saturday. It might not be a full house but it shouldn't be too far from sold out.

I think the Impact are always going to struggle a little bit with attendance when the Canadiens are still playing. After the Canadiens are eliminated (hopefully as late as possible) they'll get more media coverage and people will think more about soccer and the attendance will pick up. Let's not forget people aren't used to watch sporting events outside in April too.

I'll be at the game, the weather forecast looks nice. Should be a good one.

Calling this tomorrow.

--------------Bush--------------
Tissot-Camara-Ouimette-Brovsky
------------Warner-------------
--Romero-Bernier-Felipe-Smith/Paponi--
----------Wenger-----------

I'd love to give Warner some playing time. Hes good enough to start in the MLS. Would also want to see PB8 beside Felipe and see if they can "reconnect" together. Hopefully it could spark Felipe

Very reasonable prediction, though I wonder if they will stick to the 4141. That worked mainly because Bernier was successful at getting,winning and passing balls in the defensive midfield. I doubt they are going to risk it with a less technical squad.

This. I'm thinking they'll go conservative and play a 4-4-2. I'd personally go to the 4-2-3-1 to maximize Felipe's abilities, but with Paponi making the trip and having practiced next to Di Vaio (I know he won't play) this week, I wouldn't be surprised if we were to go with 2 forwards.

It's the perfect time to see what Paponi can di as as a 2nd, or who knows 1 day, 3rd striker on the field. A 4-1-4-1 system would be efficient, but also a waste of opportunities in a tournament like the CCL.

Hopefully we do better than RMCF. Can't take a loss to the Clowns after watching my favourite European team getting butt-*****.

Robert Lewandowski is killing it.. Too bad he isn't going to extend his contract and will get out at the end of this season. With both Mario Gotze (Bayern confirmed) and Lewandowski (Bayern?), the chances of German Supremacy internationally has gone down. Dortmund won't even be able to compete with Bayern domestically next year, let alone in Europe. They'll basically be relying in Gundogan, Reus and Blazyzkoswsky. Hope that Hummels stays though, will keep them on the top, but can't see them challenging Bayern

Actually, if we beat toronto, the first game vs Vancouver is on the 15th!

so potentially 7 games in 21 days.

Luckily we are off on Saturday the 18th. Otherwise it would have been 5 straight 2 match weeks.
