Spurs and Arsenal aren't allowed to play at home on the same day, hopefully they'll be Saturday & Sunday as opposed to home/away.
Great pics! I did MUFC v Fulham at Old Trafford and Forest v Peterborough at the City ground in 2010. This year I hit Ajax v Excelsior at the Amsterdam Arena in February, that one has been my favorite thus far.

- not the best seats, could see the whole pitch though. Also no clock.

I need to make a trip to the Bridge happen next season before they tear it down / remodel it into something different.

Judging by your avi caption, I take you've seen the Special 1 TV?

Anyone else play Football Manager? I'm a bit into my third season. First season I came in third, only needed a point at Crystal Palace and instead, Coquelin picked up a red card at 6' and I lost 2 - 0. Season two I came in second, two points behind Chelsea.

That Palace loss hurt my soul.

Seeing Jose Mourinho with a Man U kit is second only to Hogan with an NWO shirt at Bash at the Beach in terms of profoundly wrong clothing choices.

Good luck tonight Caveat Emperor!

Ralph's Mob, our supporters group, mentioned a few of FC Cincy fans coming down for the game. Since we are average in our spring season, it will be good to face a good USL squad. The battle between NASL and USL continues!

Tampa Bay Rowdies 1
FC Cincinnati 0

FC Cincy played well I thought. I counted about 5 fans from Cincy. Unfortunately they got kicked out at the 90th min for lighting smoke bombs. (Al Lang Stadium is anti smoke)

Good showing by the Rowdies. Played well, and withstood Cincy pressure.

My 3 stars:

Georgi Hristov - scored the goal, and it was pretty.
Joe Cole - Dude was all over the place setting things up.
Matty Pickens - Made some great saves, and saved Tampas ass.

Bring on CBus

Completely agree. I thought he should have been fired when USA lost to Jamaica. That loss was embarrassing.

Yes I agree. Should have been gone after Gold Cup and he had one foot out the door after the Draw against Trin & Tob and then the loss to Guatemala in the WCQ but got a reprieve when they came back 3 days later and beat Guatemala 4-0. Which IMO made it worse. Because you lose to them 2-0 3 days prior and then win 4-0. Ya great you bounced back and proved it was a fluke but it never should have had to do it.

Which is why I get the feeling since that WCQ Guatemala loss they are 6W-0D-0L and are in the "Group of Death" of Copa the federation, short of losing all 3 group stages matches, will give him another pass.

Is group A considered the Group of Death? It seems easier than getting drawn with Argentina and Chile, or Mexico and Uruguay. Colombia are obviously good, but Costa Rica and Paraguay aren't close to the level of the top 2 in C and D.

Ya but Group of Death aren't based on the top 2 teams because those teams are obviously favored to go through. It's the Groups where you could draw a straw on at the very least who the 2nd team will be.

Group A fits that description. I could see either Costa Rica, US or Paraguay advancing.

Group A FIFA Rankings
Colombia- #3
Costa Rica- #23
US- #31
Paraguay- #44

As for Group C & D does anyone fancy either Jamaica or Valenzuela over Mexico or Uruguay or Panama or Bolivia over Argentina or Chile?

Group C Rankings
Uruguay- #9
Mexico- #16
Jamaica- #46
Venezuela- #77

Group D
Argentina- #1
Chile- #5
Panama- #56
Bolivia- #82

Group A FIFA Rankings

Colombia- #3
Costa Rica- #23
US- #31
Paraguay- #44

But if USA is say the third ranked team, then putting them in a group that contains both #1 Argentina and #5 Chile then #56 Panama. I don't think Group A is harder because Paraguay is 44th and Panama is 56th, while Argentina and Chile are both higher ranked than Colombia and Costa Rica.

It's all semantics at the end, I just don't look at Group D and think because Paraguay has a better chance of advancing out of A than Panama, that it's a death group. It's a group of one decent team (even though Colombia doesn't pass the eye-ball test to me, I can't believe they are third), and three mediocre teams, where either of the bottom three can advance because none are great.

For me it just comes down to I can see any of those 3 those teams advancing with Colombia. The other 2 groups I see only Uruguay & Mexico and Argentina & Chile.

But ya it's all subjective.
