Strikers tie, MagicJack win. Strikers fan pictures and more...

MagicJack and the Strikers both played this Saturday at almost the same time. While the Strikers attendance was apparently not hurt (they still average 5,000 a game) MagicJack had only approximately 860 people show up to watch them at FAU soccer field in Boca Raton.
MagicJack easily disposed of the Atlanta Beat by 4-0 with a hattrick from Abby Wambach! Read more HERE
The Strikers on the other hand once again struggled on offense this time settling for a stalemate versus the Montreal Impact 0-0. The problems in offense can be discussed tonight on Miami Ultras Alive as El Presidente Pieter Brown and I will have Strikers coach Daryl Shore on the show. It's tonight at 10 pm on be sure to call in or join us on the chat.

Good stuff on Strikers Alive, Ed. The most interesting and intelligent commentary was by Burrito. You and Pieter did OK, too.

Uncle Ed said...

Burrito was rather active in this episode! I'd say it was the best show yet. Clearly the guest was great. Let's hope the coach gets us out of this slump and into the winning trend!

As an aside about magicJack: there is a thread on BS in the WPS - magicJack forum that magicJack needs to move to Miami's Tropical Park to boost attendance. Any thoughts on this?

Uncle Ed said...

I don't think that will work. magicJack needs to play at Lockhart in my opinion.
If they can play a few double headers with the Strikers that would work to the benefit of both teams.

Damn I look good with that MLS Miami scarf.

I forgot to mention that I see a lot of red & yellow hoops in those pics. Along with many red "Striker Liker" T-Shirts, too. I like that.
