Strikers lose in Tampa but get ready for playoffs. Want to be Rowdies have unoriginal TIFO.

Strikers fans made the trip to St Pete to support their team only to be disappointed by a 2-0 loss. The Strikers played well, dominating certain moments of the game but the turning point was the red card given to Cristian Arrieta. It was enough to change the tide and give Tampa an advantage that proved too much for the Red & Gold.

Tampa supporters continue to use the Rowdies name in vain so the Striker fans came up with the TIFO in the picture to the right to remind them that they are not the Rowdies.

You can also see the video:

Unoriginal Tampa Fans
One of the things that was brought to our attention while we were in Tampa was the TIFO made by Ralph's Mob. They are so unoriginal that they copied a TIFO made by the Timbers Army!
Check out the comparison and you be the judge:

Martyn Lancaster named 2011 player of the year by the fans. Strikers tie Atlanta.

The Strikers could have wrapped up the game versus the Atlanta Silverbacks in the first 45 minutes of their game this past Saturday at Lockhart stadium. They had a myriad of shots and chances, yet their lousy aim thwarted each effort. The second half was a whole different story as Atlanta nearly beat the Strikers with a 90th minute goal. Over 4600 people showed up to see lady luck and father time on our side as the Strikers tied it in stoppage time! Brian Shriver has been on fire as of late with his brilliant playing and now stands along with Eduardo "Chacho" Coudet as the teams scoring leaders with 6 goal this season.

Martyn Lancaster named 2011 player of the year
Fort Lauderdale Strikers Defender Martyn Lancaster was elected by the Miami Ultras Supporters group and the fans as the 2011 player of the year during the Strikers vs Atlanta game.
Martyn has played the most minutes for the team this year, scoring a goal and leading by example. Perhaps Martyn's edge on the other players is the fact that he was always accesible to the fans. Every game, win or lose he would come out to meet the fans in the parking lot for a few minutes. While other players started to do this as well, it was Martyn who was the pioneer, so to speak, since last year.
Congrats to a true hero, who bleed Fort lauderdale Strikers Red and Gold. 'Sir' Martyn Lancaster 2011 Ultras player of the year!
here is a video of Ultras President Pieter Brown awarding the glorified Ultras Beer mug:

Strikers make playoffs but look for more this Saturday versus Atlanta.

It's the last regular home game of the season for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. They've already clinched the playoffs but could secure a home playoff game and possibly 3rd place in the next 2 games. If the Strikers win this Saturday they secure the home game. But the following Saturday the last game of the season will be against rival Tampa.
The Rowdies have already won the series against the Strikers and for the second season in a row have kept the Coastal Cup (Disputed between both Florida teams). But, the Strikers could finish the season ahead of Tampa in the standings in 3rd place (Carolina Railhawks and Puerto Rico Islanders have already secured 1st and 2nd). It's all about bragging rights at this point.

Atlanta comes to the Mecca (Lockhart Stadium) with nothing to win as they are already eliminated from the playoffs. The pressure is on the Strikers to secure their place at the top half of the standings and they'll want to do it in front of their fans. A win could, without doubt, bring a large crowd to the stadium and much needed boost to the team who has not made the playoffs since it's inaugural season when they were called Miami FC.

The Miami Ultras supporters group will also be giving out the 2011 Fort Lauderdale Strikers player of the year award. look for that right before the game!

Be sure to come out and support the Strikers this Saturday at 7:30 PM. Join the supporters Miami Ultras, Flight 19, etc at 4PM  for the tailgate. You can also enjoy the Miami Food Trucks!

But all good things come to an end. Veronica moved on to another TV channel and so Burrito again told MLS to go to hell!
