  1. Man Tommy is so brutal. I don’t always think about it but he was especially bad yesterday and made me think about the whole year. JP is so good, and if we just had a real honest to god soccer person to analyze the game and point out things we don’t notice, I think it would make a huge difference

    That we stayed top of the table for so long.
    Stadium will not be sold out even though the Eagles play Sunday night.

    We beat the pants off the Pink Cows
    Sugarman sells at the end of the year.

    • Andy Muenz says:

      Stadium will probably sell out but with too many Cow fans.
      I’m withholding judgment about Wooten until next year when he has trained with the team. After all, Kacper didn’t play at all last year after he was signed.

      • John P. O'Donnell Jr. says:

        Kacper didn’t come with much expectation much like Kai Wagner. Wooten was on a roll before he arrived and it seemed ever since he scored that first goal that was over turned he’s been invisible. Granted I think he comes back next year but I wouldn’t be surprised if they cut ties with Fabian.

  3. In Tanner We Trust says:

    Was mentioned above that there will likely be a lot of Pink Cow fans. I’m fine with that if the Union win. They are so awful that they make the Union fans angrier and louder. We had the worst RB fans behind us in June, chanting Let’s Go Giants and all that. The loudest I’ve ever heard any section I’ve been in at any stadium was the 2nd goal to tie the game. We all screamed our heads off at those obnoxious oxygen thieves.
