    Who goes first – Zimmer or Heath?

    It’s unbelievable how bad this team is when they play a man up

      Got to go to Allianz today, pretty cool. At halftime they water the field? Is that a common thing?

      Probably the most pathetic performance I’ve seen in the Allianz era.

      Yep, they do it every game. Even when they were at TCF on the artifical turf they watered it at half time. I’m not a soccer player, but I have always assumed it’s too make the field more “slick”, for the ball to glide across, and for slide tackling

      Feels like the Loons have had 5% possession this half.

      Actually watching Loons game vs. Philly. Just saw a Loons player throw a ball at a Philly player hitting him in the face and getting a red card. Though you would think the Philly player got hit in the face with a sledgehammer the way he acted flopping all over the field… Lol!!

        The Loon get a big 3-2 win against Philly (who are 3rd place in the east). The Loon are in a tight battle for the playoffs where every point is likely to matter.

        Mrs. GE and I went to our first Loons game tonight, they are really fun games. Will definitely do it again!

        Also helps the stadium is in our neighborhood so the 7 minute commute makes it really easy.

        I was sincerely concerned about the long term health of a few Philly Floppers but the are miraculous healers! ;)

        I was there last night for the first time as well. I’m not a soccer guy but it was a really good time and the stadium is pretty cool. I don’t know who sang the national anthem but he should sing it before every MN sports event. He absolutely killed it.

        Glad you guys both had a fun time! And just think, that was probably the least full I’ve seen Allianz since the stadium opened. Cold rainy weeknight contributed to that, I’m sure. When it’s packed to the gills, the energy in that stadium is ramped up even more!

        As for the game, it was nice to see us fight back and win against a really solid Philadelphia team. Metanire… I don’t know what he was thinking, bonehead move. And now he misses a really crucial game against LAFC on Saturday.

        It’s nice to see Hunou contributing a bit more. He seems to be starting to settle in. It always takes guys at least a half season to settle into MLS, it seems.

        Viking had an extra ticket a couple years ago, so I bought his extra ticket. I’m not a soccer guy either. I had a blast and told him I might have a to go to another!!!

        It would have been better if he got the words right.

        He said “to” instead of “through”… twice. I know it’s not an easy song to sing, but you should still get the words right.

          The Loon get a HUGE 2-1 win at home this afternoon against Sporting KC (who is in first place in the west) which greatly improved their chances of making the playoffs. The Loon have one game left at LA Galaxy next Sunday.

          Results by Portland, Vancouver, LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, and LAFC over the next few days and on Sunday will determine if the Loon need a win, a draw or nothing in their last match.

          The six teams are all within 5 points of each other fighting for the last four playoff spots in the west. The next week is going to be wild.

          Always takes some serious stones to attempt a Panenka ona PK. Even more so if you miss and you get a draw when the playoff line leaves no room for error

            The Loon clinch a spot in the playoffs with a 3-3 draw at LA knocking the Galaxy out of the playoffs.

            As the 5th seed in the west the Loon open the playoffs at Portland the 4th seed in the west. Time to burn the Timbers!!!!

            I didn’t see any of the game but I got the alert when they went up 2-0. I told my wife that knowing Heath’s style they’ll try to sit back and soak up pressure. I also told her that I wouldn’t be surprised if they lost because LA has too many talented plyers for us to be able to withstand that for 50 minutes. It drives me nuts to watch this team when they get out to a lead and have no ability to possess the ball more to protect the lead.

            I really thought it would be deja vu from Seattle in the conference final last year. It was close but thankfully they found a way to get a result.

            The Loon goaltender made at least three point blank saves in OT. He earned his paycheck yesterday….

              Come on GE it was extra/stoppage time not OT. Learn your soccer terminology. :D

                Should we tell him about extra time?

                And how it used to be a full 30 minutes until someone bastardized it and changed it to sudden death before going back to a full 30 minutes?

                His head might explode if we tell him they don’t take players off the pitch for extra time like hockey does :mrgreen:

                  I want to see the goaltender run off the field for an extra attacker when the ref calls a delayed yellow card.

                  Loons lose 1-3 to Portland.

                  Loons got in front early but gave up a goal late in the first half and a goal almost immediately to start the second half.
