Are you smarter than Paul Mariner?: Round 21

New, 43 comments

Didn't we just play these guys? Toronto FC head to Houston to play the Dynamo in a rematch of last weekends match. Will the game yield the same outcome? What is your prediction?

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

This Saturday Toronto FC will head into battle against the struggling Houston Dynamo. If you’re feeling a bit of deja vu you’re not alone. After Wednesday night’s draw against Vancouver the Reds hop on a plane to Houston who they produced a thrilling come from behind victory against just seven days prior.

The Dynamo did not have a mid-week game and have had all week to break down the game film and make adjustments where required. Houston fell into the typical TFC game plan last Saturday of pouring on the attack while leaving themselves exposed to the pace of the TFC counter attack. Dominic Kinnear will have prepared his squad in preparation of that counter attack all week, however TFC could turn the tables on Houston and play a possession style game much like Wednesday night.

Wednesday was the first time TFC was able to play the way many fans had envisioned their game when they built the team in the off-season. Composed on the ball, plenty of meaningful possession in the offensive third, attacks from the wings and strong defensive play could all be used to describe the way the Reds played against the Whitecaps, a side they usually struggle against.

Can TFC really turn it on in the second half and play this way for the rest of the season? Will Houston exact revenge for last week’s defeat? 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.
