State of Mind: Still don't like this friendly
Location: No where near the Skydome tomorrow
I said I wasn't going to discuss the "game" tomorrow yet here I am. But I promise to keep it brief, really. Back in April I wrote this and I haven't changed my mind or softened my stance on this type of friendly.
I know a number of LFC fans that have been crazily excited about this game and I get that, I do. Although a number of them are less happy this evening having learned that none (or very few) of LFC's stars have traveled with team and will not be playing. However (as always) my main concern in all of this at this very moment is the health of our still fragile team. With the team finally starting to perform decently the last thing they need is to lose more players to injury. The schedule going forward is as unforgiving as the past month and TFC will need their players to be healthy if they hope to endure the rigors of both the MLS and CCL schedule.
And above all else our boys need a rest - especially Kocic, Frings, Dunfield and RJ - there is no need to send them out there against what is essentially the Liverpool reserve team. That's really it for me; not going to rehash anything else and am looking forward to next Saturday for our Reds' next actual game. But what's a post without some links? Check out The Yorkies, Waking The Red and Mike Gardner's post over at WTR for some final thoughts. See you next week!
