Adrian Heath and Brendan Flood make their MLS debut tonight at 9 with Orlando playing the other New York side.

It's on Sky for anyone interested.

New York Red Bulls are also on but having read the comments from coach and sporting director I'm not sure we'll be seeing Richards.

Not sure Flood has anything to do with them now (see link) - at least they didn't go down the pan like Carey Clarets. I was never understanding of a Burnley director being involved with a club that was linked to Stoke. - view external link (http://www.orlandocitysc.com/club/board-of-directors)

Two players who have scored league goals for Burnley could line up for Orlando tonight - Martin Paterson and Sean St. Ledger.

'...Two players who have scored league goals for Burnley could line up for Orlando tonight...'

manager of Houston is a one goal legend for Burnley reserves! >;)

Flood is at the game tonight.

Martin Paterson isn't in the 16 but St Ledger starts on the bench.

Think Paterson has done his hamstring unsurpisingly

08-03-2015, 08:24 PM
Paterson injured? That's a shock.

It's not good. It's a good advert for grass pitches.

Very poor first half,saw a better game at Lincoln United yesterday.
There are players like Kaka and David Villa and some who would struggle to get a game in the Conference.
Gawthorpe and TURF MOOR had a couple of mentions.

And Stan

Hope the second match is better than this.

Quite enjoyed this. Decent pace to the game and fairly end to end. Good goal for NY but Orlando possibly should have had a pen and just had a man sent off.

I fear for Paterson playing regularly on a 3G with his history of injuries.

A deflected Kaka free kick earned Orlando a point in the last minute.

Richards was so bad it was actually embarrassing! Probably the worse "video" signing of all time?

09-03-2015, 07:46 AM
If we're playing video signing poker then I raise you Diego Penney.

The first time I saw Penny he was attempting to take a drop kick at Accrington Stanley in a friendly. OMG I immediately knew Subo had dropped a right one. It got worse when we went to Hillsborough. Richards or Penny? Errrrmmmm..!

That would be CARY clarets, CT ;D

and the linkage would never have resulted in an MLS side. Carolina Railhawks do quite well in the NASL. The guy Flood looked to link up with is long gone, focused on indoor soccer.

Railhawks is owned by Traffic Sports, a major Americas Sports/Commercial agency. This would have been a very significant resource to tap into. Traffic has organized and/or commercialized most of the official international soccer events in the Americas and today holds select exclusive commercial rights to Copa America, CONCACAF Gold Cup, Copa Libertadores, CONCACAF Champions League, CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers, Copa do Brasil and the North American Soccer League (NASL).

Meanwhile back in Cary, you may or may not like the matchday experience, with the depot (below) a full-on carnival with smoke bombs, flags, drums etc. This is ably supported by the 12th Man, the section next to the Depot, where concessioners, like in baseball, bring beers to you where you're sitting/sta

Its a very different experience watching football in N. America, can be very entertaining. The "home" sections make a lot of sense and are generally well behaved but boisterous. Wish that Burnley would have got more involved as there is a lot of talent over here, the success at the last world cups bears that out.
