    Well Minnesota had a live feed over the weekend, maybe that's a good sign for the Rowdies match with them next. Following without the video feed is ok, but not quite the same.

    Sarcasm?

    Following D2 without a video feed, especially when its your team, is excruciating. There are no real match trackers or radio broadcasts to make up for it.

    Minnesota by all reports has their shit together, so I'm not concerned.

    sarcasm not intended, just understatement I suppose. I found a betting site that had seemingly real time updates on score and like the rest of us followed the match snippets on twitter. Hoping the video of the match makes it to the fctampabay website soon

    As an aside, might I compliment both clubs on the snazzy crest designs. Classy stuff.

    Now here's hoping FCTB crush those guys!:D Just looking at the schedule it looks like we may catch them in a vulnerable spot being that they play at PRI just two days before we roll up there. Hopefully they upload the CPB footage soon, I really want to get a sense of how well the team played together as a unit.

    heh, ya we do have a decent looking crest. It will be interesting to see how Minnesota handles the travel and even though we are on the road for this one I like our chances for a second win.

    Best time to play this lot is right now. They are gonna sweat their a$$es off in humid Puerto Rico then fly right back to freezing Minnesota. If they don't get the flu then our pressing will grind them into the turf. I like our chances in this one. We win it and we are in good shape!

    Everyone come to the watch party in Centro Ybor at Rock N Sports grill and bar. We'll be gathering around 7:30 and streaming the game onto a giant 52 incher.

    Oh well...

    My prediction... FCTBR 1 - mini-sota 1

    But... if Two-Boys get in the game for mini-sota, I guess they will have 12 on the field? lol

    You read correctly kids... Two-Boys. lol

    I can't see how you guys wont win. I went to the Islanders-Stars game tonight and they played horrible. I think you will take this one either 2-0 or 2-1.

    They are a new team and playing away in rain-soaked tropical PR didn't help. I think Minnesota is dangerous at home. Also their starting GK went down so the new/old GK is working into the team. I think the Railhawks took them for granted too and look what happened.

    ya, just no way of telling how we'll do. Hopefully the travel lag will help us, since the Stars will be on the their 3rd game in a week and we'll be fresh.

    I hope for 3 points, but a draw is pretty good. As long as the team plays well then whatever the result its all good.

    I think we take it 2-1, but obviously I'm a homer. Another win would be huge with the home opener only 2 weeks away. the buzz is really starting to build and a team that wins only means good things for ticket sales.

    Yes, I saw some parts of the game through streaming, and could notice that the pitch was in very bad conditions

    Yeah. Minnesota proved that they've come along way since Shattuck St. Marys in that game. They didn't play well enough that we should have lost (seriously, that has to have been the crappiest first half in RailHawks history), but they're not the joke I was worried they would be.

    This game won't be a walk in the park for either team.

    i have no volume so i have no idea who that was but somone just had an immaculate lob pass through to our striker (im assuming wheeler) and he just had a horrible first touch and ruined a thing of beauty.
