    This year could be a great one if Gio keeps the team on target again all season.
    But starting 12 games on the road is a HUGE challenge to overcome.

    I was surprised to see Bradley net 2 goals. He was playing up further than we've seen him in the last couple years now that the Giovinco is gone, but still a surprise. I'm sure Toronto fans are happy to see him step up though.

    Philly didn't look horrible, but I still don't think they've put all the pieces together out there. Fabian was a glimmer of hope at times though. Could be a good addition.

    I still have yet to go to our new stadium, mostly due to the horrible treatment of the shpporters groups by the owners and loss of tailgaiting culture after the move.

        Holy shit, I can't believe we won! Taking down the reigning champs and shutting them down on opening day. Wow.

      I just wish we went for more squad rotation. Result would've still been the same but we would be rested for the Monterray game

      If it is any consolation, when DC United won the US Open Cup back in 2013 it was our record breaking most losingest season in MLS history with only three regular season wins and 24 losses.

        That's honestly incredible. I'm not hurt about last night, I expected that result. Big things coming from MLS's original dynasty this year.

      I wish ATL on CCL, but I hope my Timbers get their second cup before you do. Had fun at your stadium for the final though. Take care of Nagbe for us!
