New York Red Bulls vs Toronto FC: Game Thread

Live commentary and random nonsense as TFC take on the Red Bulls.

New York Red Bulls vs Toronto FC
Red Bull Arena, 7pm Eastern

Another meaningless game in the long awkward march to the end of the season. The precedent of this fixture in the past suggests we should expect a Harrison Hammering, precedent of what's happened so far this year suggest we'll keep it tight, maybe get a draw, but more than likely a narrow defeat, one that allows Nelsen to avoid the evidence of what we just watched and suggest TFC deserved more. If we can make it back to Toronto without trading someone or creating another PR problem, well that'll probably be considered a good result.

Doneil Henry's suspended, Robert Earnshaw's unlikely to play, as is Richard Eckersley who picked up an injury in training, none of which really helps, especially with Bright Dike unlikely to be put into the starting lineup so quickly, meaning it'll more than likely be Justin Braun up front with Andrew Wiedeman. Meh.

Anyway, we'll have lineups when they hit twitter and commentary and the usual nonsense throughout the game. Join us.
