Are you smarter than Paul Mariner?: Round 34

New, 28 comments

Only five games left? Will the Reds make the playoffs? Will LA smash their chances Saturday or will last week's comeback win be the inspiration for a magical run?

Victor Decolongon

After an emotional, come from behind home win last weekend against Portland the Reds hit the road to the City of Angels. At the Stub Hub Center the Reds will try to rally to get a result that they desperately need to keep them in the fight for their first ever post-season berth.

The LA Galaxy have been on an absolute tear of late. Pretty much ever since Landon Donovan announced that he was calling it a career at the end of this season LA has gone from in the mix for a playoff spot in the west to Supporters Shield contenders. It isn’t just the results either for LA, just one loss in August and September; it’s the manner of their victories. A 4-0 over New York last week, a 6-0 against Colorado, 3-0 over Chivas and a 4-1 win against DC all since August 27 and all at home. Well the Chivas game was technically away but played in the same facilities that they use combined with the minimal support Chivas gets and that is pretty much a home game too.

Things don’t look rosy for TFC but it didn’t look all that great at the 30 minute mark last week either. TFC will have to play their best game of the season if they are to come away victorious on Saturday night. Splitting the points on the road would not be the end of the world as TFC would still be in the playoff mix but it would definitely hinder their chances. From here on out every game is a must win.

Will TFC be able to put together back to back inspiring performances? Will LA’s attack be too much for the TFC defense to handle? What will TFC give to Landon as his going away present? Post your predictions below or tweet your predictions to me, @Stouffvillain to ensure that your entry is accurately logged. As always 2 points for the correct result, 1 point for the correct TFC score and 1 point for the correct opponent score. Here are the up to date results.
