Are you smarter than Paul Mariner?: Round 29

New, 32 comments

With fires and hires happening and rumors swirling all round TFC can the men on the pitch put everything aside and focus on a crucial two game set with a team dead on their heels? Post your predictions below and you can win a part of Ryan Nelsen's severance package (actually it's just a JDG bobblehead up for grabs).

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Whoa! What a weekend. Just as we were all getting comfortable with this "new" TFC, the "why can’t we be great" talk, respectable result and place in the standings the head honcho calls it quits and the heads started rolling. The old TFC is back baby! Are you smarter than Ryan Nelsen coming in 2015.

Out is Ryan Nelsen the Kiwi that was so fresh from his playing days that him strapping the boots on seemed like a viable solution to our back line issues at times. In came TFC’s newest Academy product Greg Vanney. Granted Vanney has plenty of previous coaching experience after leading the TFC Academy since 2011 he now has his shot at the first team. Right into the pressure cooker he goes. A home and home series with Philadelphia this week should give Vanney an idea of what to expect down the stretch as the Reds desperately try to cling onto their playoff lives.

Philadelphia are right in the thick of things and will see these next two games as winnable matches against a team in disarray. A couple of wins or even coming away with four points for Philly will set them up nicely down the stretch and give them control of their own destiny,.

Can Vanney get the best out of this group? Will the injuries and international call-ups be too much to overcome? Will TFC hang onto their playoff spot come Monday morning? 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.
