McCann's issue was settled last week before the deadline to submit complete rosters.

 

Pirez has been claimed good to go for the match.

 

Carmona has only 1 match suspension

Predicted line up: "We will most likely see his spot in the center filled by Jeff Larentowicz or Chris McCann. Other projected starters: Alec Kann (GK), Greg Garza (LB), Leandro González Pirez (CB), Michael Parkhurst (CB), Tyrone Mears (RB), Julian Gressel (CM), Miguel Almirón (CAM), Yami Asad (LW), Tito Villalba (RW) and Josef Martinez (ST)."

 

And AU match preview.

OMG! Weather.com says start time will be 23' with a wind of 11mph making it feel like 13'!!!! With light snow. WTH? Nightmare conditions! Feel sorry for anyone out in that. And yes, many of us know exactly what that feels like since many of us travel a lot. I hate skiing in those temps much less playing football?! This could be dangerous with potential frostbite or hypothermia. I sure hope they are layering up and a lot. Like Michael said, the toes and fingers are going to be the most at risk. Sure am glad I'll be at a viewing party here in the ATL OTP.

 

Orange ball time!

Cheers Gr8 for the corrections. McCann didn't practice or dress out as a result of the green card issue last week so it effectively kept him out of the game. I'm surprised he's not in the lineup this week.

Quite a response from our players this week. A brace and a hattrick. Too bad we couldn't have that performance at home, but it should build a bit of excitement for next week. We're still fragile defensively even with this scoreline.  It takes some time to get that organization right, so hopefully it will improve as the season wears on. Poor minnesota are abject. Going to be a long season for them. We look really good technically. Thought it was certainly better than even NYRB last week.
