OF THE CHANGES WE ARE LOOKING FOR.>>THANKS, COACH.>>WHAT CAN JOE COLE BRING TO THIS SLIEENL TONIGHT AS A COACH?>>HE BRINGS SO MUCH EXPERIENCE. NOT ONLY ON AND OFF THE FIELD. NOW AS AN ASSISTANTS COACH, HE CAN ACTUALLY SHARE EXPERIENCE OFF THE FIELD. IT’S SOMETHING HE HAS BEEN DOING ON THE FIELD AS WELL. YOU SEE IN PRACTICE,E HAS AN ABILITY TO TELL YOU WHEREE HAS BEEN AND WHATE HAS DONE. IT’S HUGE TO HAVE A PLAYER OF THAT CALIBER AS YOUR ASSISTANT COACH.>>THIS TEAM A FACING ADVERSITY RIGHT NOW. WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN TO GET THE THREE POINTS.>>IT’S SIMPLE. THEY HAVE TO MAKE SURE THEY CREATE CHANCES EARLY. TONIGHT THEY HAVE TO DO IT. THEY HAVE TO BE VERY SUCCESSFUL. THEY HAVE TO FINISH.

I’M NOT TOO SURE HOW COMMON THAT IS SEEING REPTILES HANGING OUTS BEFORE THE GAME. THERE IS NOT A LOT OF ACTIVITY ON THE SCOREBOARD. BUT THE MATCH LAST WEEK AGAINST ATLANTA UNITED 2 HAD PLENTY OF ACTION ON THE PITCH. OUR PLAY BY PLAY ANNOUNCER DREW FELLIOS HAD A RECAP OF THE MATCH, DREW?>>Drew: USUALLY WHEN YOU CAN WALK AWAY WITH A POINTS YOU’RE PRETTY SATISFIED. IT WAS BITTERSWEET LAST WEEK BECAUSE THE ROWDIES THOUGHT THEY SHOULD HAVE COME AWAY WITH THE THREE POINTS. LET’S GO BACK TO ONE WEEK AGO WHERE ATLANTA CAME IN HERE WITH ONLY TWO VICTORIES. MARCEL SCHÄFER PUTS THIS IN MOTION. IT FALLS TO GRAF AND CAN’T GET IT TO GO. DENIED THERE. ATLANTA WOULD HAVE A FREE KICK. WATCH THE HEADER HERE. FLICKED ON. AKIRA FITZGERALD WOULD COME UP WITH A MASSIVE SAVE. FITZGERALD HAD THREE HUGE SAVES IN THIS MATCH. THIS WAS CERTAINLY ONE OF THEM. GO TO THE 39th MINUTE. JOE COLE GETS BUSY. AND THEN TAKEN DOWN. THAN IS THE SECOND YELLOW FOR WILL. HIS NIGHT WOULD BE OVER. ATLANTA WOULD BE DOWN TO 10 MENNEN FELT LIKE IT WOULD BE SMOOTH SAILING FOR THE ROWDIES THE REST OF THE WAY. ANOTHER LOOK.

DENIED, WHAT A SAVE. LEO HAS BEEN QUIET AS OF LATE. THIS TREMENDOUS PACE WILL BE LOOKED FOR TONIGHT FOR THE ROWDIES. HUNTER GORSKIE CROSS TO MAX LACHOWECKI. HE SENDS IT OVER THE BALL. THEY SETTLE FOR A NIL-NIL DRAW AGAINST ATLANTA. IT DOESN’T GET ANY EASIER TONIGHT. ROWDIES A LITTLE SHAENLDSED. SHORT-HANDED. THIS NASHVILLE TEAM ARE ON A ROLL. IT WILL NOT BE EASY.>>Lynden: IT WILL BE A FOR SURE TOUGHER ONE. EDDIE, HOW ABOUT ALL OF THAT ENERGY COMING OFF THE BENCH TOWARDS THE END OF THE LAST WEEK’S MATCH. YOU COULD FEEL IT IN THE MATCH WHEN LEO GOT IN THE GAME. THE GAME PICKED UP.>>Eddie: ONE OF THE THEFT BINGZ COACH COLLINS DID, WITH THE ADDITION OF ALEX MORRELL, HE CAME OFF THE BENCH. E WAS DYNAMIC. THAT’S WHAT THEY NEED TO DO, BUT YOU NEED TO DO IT EARLIER TO GIVE YOU TIME TO SCORE SOME GOALS.>>THAT’S WHAT NEILL COLLINS SAID, GET OUT EARLIER AND GET HOT QUICKER. GUIDES, THE ROWDIES ARE OBVIOUSLY GOOD AT SOCCER. IF THEY COULD PLAY ANOTHER SPORT WHAT WOULD IT BE?

EVERY SINGLE POSITION AND THEY JUST PLAY THE GAME AND SO I DEFINITELY WILL THINK THEY ARE A BIG FAVORITE.>>Reporter: IF IT’S NOT ENGLAND, I FANCY LOOK TOO FAR PAST BRAZIL. I THINK THEY WILL BE VERY STRONG THIS YEAR. I’D LOVE TOSS ARGENTINA WIN IT BECAUSE I’M A FAN OF MESSI AND I’D LIKE TO SEE HIM WIN IT, IF HE DIDN’T DO IT, OBVIOUSLY. SO I THINK IT’S ABOUT TIME FOR THEM TO WIN AGAIN. I HAVE A THING FOR MESSI. APART FROM HIM, I WANT HIM TO BE THE WORLD CHAMPION WITH HIS TEAM.>>I WOULD SAY ARGENTINA. THEN YOU NEVER KNOW. THE GERMANS WILL WIN BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT THEY DO.>>Lynden: EDDIE, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TOWARD TO SEE ICELAND PLAY IN THIS WORLD CUP.

THEY HAVEN’T DROPPED A POINT IN THE LAST — THEY HAVEN’T DROPPED A GAME IN THE LAST NINE. THEY ARE SO SCINLTS IN THE BACK. THEY ARE A TEAM THAT COME OUT OF THE BACK PLAYING. THEY PICKED AND NEW PLAYER, A TRANSFER, BRANDON ALLEN, WHO IS THE PLAYER OF THE WEEK. HE HAS HAD THREE GOALS AND ONE ASSIST IN THE LAST FOUR GAMES. THEY BEAT THE COLORADO RAPIDS DURING THE WEEKEND. DURING THE MID WEEK GAME. IT’S A HUGE BOOST AS A TEAM.>>Lynden: TIME TO LOOK AT NASHVILLE STYLE OF PLAY.>>Eddie: THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THEY ARE SO GOOD. LOOK AT THE MOVEMENT OWE AND OFF THE BALL. THIS PLAY HERE. THEY MOVE THE BALL SO EFFICIENTLY. THIS GUY HAS A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT CHOICES. LOOK AT THE MOVEMENT. AS SOON AS HE TOUCHED THE BALL, HAS ONE OUT WIDE, TWO, THREE, FOUREN IF HE SKIES TO PLAY BACK INTO THE MIDDLEN HOW ABOUT THAT FINISH. INSIDE OF HIS RIGHT FOOT. THE GAME WINNER WITH A GREAT STRIKE.>>Lynden: NASHVILLE IS LED BY HEAD COACH GARY SMITH. DREW FELLIOS CAUGHT WORLD CUP HIM ABOUT TONIGHT’S MUCH-ANTICIPATED MATCH.>>Drew: NINE MATCHES WITHOUT A LOSS. SIX OF THOSE USL MATCHES WHAT IS THE SECRET BEHIND YOUR SUCCESS THIS SEASON?>>I THINK A LOT OF GOOD CHARACTERS IN THE LOCKER ROOM. THE GUYS HAVE COME TOGETHER VERY QUICKLY IN A BRAND NEW CLUB. ONCE YOU GET ON A LITTLE BIT OF A RUN, THE PLAYERS HAVE CONFIDENCE. NO COACH CAN GIVE PLAYERS CONFIDENCE. THEY GET THAT WITH GOOD RESULTS AND CLEAN SHEETS. THE GUYS ARE FEELING GOOD. WE ARE ON A NICE RUN BUT WE HAVE A TOUGH ONE TONIGHT.>>Drew: THREE DAYS REST, TOUGH PLACE TO PLAY AT AL LANG STADIUM WHAT IS THE KEY TONIGHT?>>WE HAVE TO KEPT THEM OFF THE SCORE SHEET. THEY HAVE A VERY GOOD RECORD HERE. I THINK UP UNTIL THE GAME I BELIEVE THEY SCORED IN 30 GAMES CONSISTENTLY. SO, YOU KNOW, BEING AS TIGHT AS WE HAVE BEEN, BEING AS PROVEN AS WE HAVE, NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, MAKE SURE WE USE THE BALL WELL. IT’S A BIG FIELD. IT’S A GOOD FIELD. WE HAVE A LOT OF GOOD TALTED INDIVIDUALS. I’D LIKE TO GET THEM ON THE BOULE AND USE THE BALL WELL.

ALWAYS, ALWAYS KEEPING INTACT AND THEN HE GOES OFFENSIVELY. THEY ARE A DIFFICULT TEAM TO PLAY AGAINST AND THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE. WHETHER THEY ARE PLAYING AT HOME OR AWAY.>>Lynden: WITH BRANDON ALLEN JOINING THE TEAM, HE TOLD US THAT HE PICKED UP ALLEN TO LK THE GOALSCORER. HE PULLS HIM OFF THE BENCH. THEY ARE IT’S THE HOMECOMING OF FORMER ROWDIES, HE SPENT FOUR REASONS WITH THE ROWDIES WITH 112 APPEARANCES. THAT’S THE FOURTH MOST IN THE MODERN ERA. SINCE HE WENT TO NASHVILLE, HE IS HAVING A SEASON. 11 STARTS FOR THE CLUB HE ONLY CONCEDED SEVEN GOALS. THAT AVERAGES OUT TO 0.63 GOALS A GAME. HE ALSO HAS SIX CLEAN SHEETS.

TWO WEEKS HE HAS BEEN WITH THE CLUB. LOOK AT HIS NUMBERS. THREE GOALS, ONE ASSIST. THAT INCLUDES THE GAME AGAINST THE MLS SIDE. LOOK AT HIS MOVEMENT. HE HAS THE ASSIST. THAT ONE-TWO COMBINATION FOR THE GAME WINNER, JUST SO FAST GOING FORWARD. ON THE OTHER SIDE FOR THE ROWDIES. MORAL, HIS FIRST START. HE CAME OFF THE BENCH LAST GAME. HE DID GREAT AGAINST ATLANTA. TODAY HE GETS ACTUALLY FIRST START WITH THE ROWDIES. NOW ONE OF THE BEST THINGS HE DOES, HE HAS THE EXPLOSIVENESS, SPEED, AGILITY GOING FORWARD. HE DOES SO MUCH, EXEAL THE WAY HE CAME IN AGAINST ATLANTAEN TODAY THE COACH WILL ASK HIM TO DO IT FROM THE BEGINNING. HE PUT HIM IN THE STARTING 11.>>Lynden: HE IS MAKING HIS SECOND START TONIGHT.

HE HAS A HUGE CONFIDENCE BOOST HAVING HIS COACH BELIEVES IN HIM. HE KNOWS HE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT ON THIS ROWDIES TEAM.>>Eddie: IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU PLAY FOR A COACH WHO PUTS OUT THE FIELD AND TELLS YOU, “I BELIEVE IN YOU, GO DO IT OUT THERE.”>>Lynden: WELL HAVE A HUGE MATCH COMING UP. THAT IS ALL WE HAVE FOR THE ROWDIES PRE-GAME SHOW. FOR DREW, EDDIE AND OUR BROADCAST CREW. THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN.

THEY HAVE TO GO FORWARD AND CREATE CHANCES.>>Eddie: VINGAARDIARD GETTING THE START TONIGHT. HE HAD TO COME IN FOR LANCE ROZEBOOM WHEN HE WENT DOWN WITH A SPRAINED KNEE. THIS CERTAINLY IS A SITUATION THAT TAMPA BAY IS NOT USED TO BEING IN. ROWDIES BALL ON THE FAR SIDE. ONLY 17 OF THE 23 PLAYERS AVAILABLE. NEILL COLLINS IN HIS FOURTH GAME AS A HEAD COACH, THAT COACHING MIND WILL GET TESTED CERTAINLY TONIGHT.>>Eddie: THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO DO AS A HEAD COACH.

NASHVILLE TRYING TO GET UPFIELD AND HUNTER GORSKIE TO TOSS IT IN.>>Eddie: DREW, NASHVILLE WILL BE CONTENT IN SITTING BACK. LET’S NOT FORGET. THEY PLAYED DURING THE WEEK, LAST WEEK WEDNESDAY WHEN THEY BEAT THE COLORADO SIDE. SO FOR THEM THEY ARE FATIGUED LEGS. THEY HAD TO GO TO THEIR BENCH. NOT ALL OF THE STARTERS ARE STARTING THIS GAME. I’M SURE WE WILL SEE THEM IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Drew: GUENZATTI SENDS IT BACK. THIS FROM WAY DEEP. NOW THE RIGHT SIDE. ALEX MORRELL, THE FORMER GEORGE JENKINS HIGH SCHOOL STAR SAILS OUT OF BOUNDS.>>Eddie: THAT IS A CHALLENGE THEY WILL HAVE TO DRAW, MORAL AGAINST RYAN JAMES ON THE RIGHT, MORAL’S RIGHT, JAMES’ LEFT.

YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU DELIVER THE BALL WITH PACE. INTO THE BOX.>>Drew: GOAL KICK COMING UP FOR PICKENS. NASHVILLE SC. 19 POINTS HEADING INTO AL LANG STADIUM HERE TONIGHT. IT GETS UP HIGH.

THE LAST PLAYER TO TOUCH THE BALL. 50/50 BALL.>>Drew: JUNIOR FLEMMINGS AGAIN. BALL SENT OUT BY DOYLE. ALEX MORRELL WILL CROSS IT IN ON THE NEAR SIDE. SCORELESS DRAW LAST WEEK, THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES WITH WINS OVER NORTH CAROLINA, BETHLEHEM, OTTAWA, REAL AND TORONTO. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, 4-2 WIN NORTH OF THE BORDER. VINGAARD AT THE POINT OF ATTACK. ROWDIES TRY TO GET TO WORK. NICE POSSESSION HERE. INTO THE 18. THE BACK LINE OF NASHVILLE ON NOTICE. GORSKIE TOSSES IT IN. HOW ABOUT GORSKIE, THE WAY HE IS ABLE TO SAME ON THE FIELD EVERY MINUTE OF PLAY. JUNIOR FLEMMINGS, APPROACHING THE 18. STILL WITH POSSESSION. SURROUNDED BY NAVY BLUE JERSEYS. GREAT EFFORTS THAT TIME, JUST RAN OUT OF SPACE.>>Eddie: HE HAS TO MAKE SURE HE TAKES A QUICKER SHOT. THAT’S THE ABILITY HE HAS TO GO THROUGH TWO OR MORE DIFFERENT PLAYERS. TOP OF THE 18. THE ROWDIES DON’T GET THE CALL AGAIN. GEORGI HRISTOV HAVING A CHAT WITH THE REF.>>Drew: YOU TALKED ABOUT GORSKIE IN THE BACK. THE ONLY PLAYERS THAT HAS PLAYED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE. ONE OF THE THING THAT NEILL COLLINS SAID, SINCE HE BECAME THE COACH, NOW THEY ARE — MAGALHÃES, IT’S BRAZILIAN. TWO SOLID CENTER BACKS. GORSKIE ON THE OTHER SIDE TO COMPLEMENT THEM.>>Drew: NASHVILLE WORKING SLOWLY. MOLOTO. SENDS IT RIGHT. SOFT PASS. HE IS THERE TO HEAD IT OUT. FOR OUR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY, MOR, FAMILY FUN TIME WITH STEVE GOLDBERG, THE MODERN FAMILY AND BIG BANG THEORY. TURN ON THE LAFERS AND LAUGHS AND GET MORE WITH MOR. WHISTLE IN FAVOR OF TAMPA BAY. WE WILL SET THIS OUTSIDE THE CENTER CIRCLE.>>Eddie: THE REFEREE GAVE THEM THE ADVANTAGE. ABOUT TO HAVE A CHAT WITH THE REF.>>Drew: ONE THING ABOUT THE GAME LAST WEEK. THE OFFICIALS REALLY CONTROL THE TEMPO. TWO YELLOWS AND THEN THE RED CARD HANDED OUT TO MARCEL SCHÄFER. VERY PHYSICAL GAME. NOT A VERY PRETTY GAME. I HAVE A FEELING IT WILL BE DIFFERENT TONIGHT.>>Eddie: YOU’RE RIGHT. ATLANTA HAD A CASE TO SAY THAT WASN’T A YELLOW CARD, THE SECOND ONE. OF COURSE, THE SECOND YELLOW, OF COURSE, THAT’S CONSTITUTES A RED. SCHÄFER, THERE WASN’T A WARNING OR A YELLOW PROVIDER TO THATTEN IS THAT A FRIEW RED CARD RIGHT AWAY — IS THAT A TRUE RED CARD RIGHT AWAY? FROM THE REFEREE’S POINT OF VIEW.>>RYAN JAMES SENDS IT UP. OFF BY GORSKIE. GORSKIE, ATTACKING NOW. ALEX MORRELL. MORAL GOES DOWN. WAITING FOR THE CALL. THERE IS THE OFFICIAL STEPG RIGHT IN.>>Eddie: GREAT JOB OF ALEX MORRELL TAKING PLAYERS ON. TALK ABOUT GORSKIE OUT OF THE BACK PLAYING EARLY BALL. GEORGI HRISTOV WITH THE ONE-TWO. ALEX MORRELL TAKES PLAYERS ON. THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, DREW. THAT’S HOW HE DREW THE FOUL. HE GOES ONE AND ONE. THE FLICK FROM BEHIND RIGHT THERE RIGHT AS HE WAS ENTERING THE 18. NASHVILLE SAYING WE GOT THE BALL. GREAT CHANCE HERE FOR THE ROWDIES.>>Drew: TAMPA BAY APPLYING EARLY PRESSURE. MICHAEL NANCHOFF SETS THINGS UP, THE MIDFIELDER OUT OF OHIO. ONE GOAL THIS YEAR FOR TAMPA BAY. NANCHOFF WITH THE LEFT FOOT IN-SWINGER. TO THE NEAR POST. TWO OF THE BETTER PLAYERS IN THE AIR. IN THE BOX, MAGALHÃES.>>Drew: NASHVILLE. NANCHOFF. THIS WILL HOOK. IT’S A LITTLE TOO HIGH. I THINK IN A SITUATION LIKE THAT, YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS HIGH. YOU AT LEAST WANT A CHANCE AT THE REBOUND.>>Eddie: HE NEEDS TO PUT GOOD SPIN ON THE BALL. IT’S SO EASY. WHEN YOU GET THAT MOMENTUM, THAT’S THE DIFFICULTY OF PITTING THE BALL JUST OVER THE WALL. IT HAS TO DIP. NOT A LOT OF SPACE BETWEEN THE WALL. IT’S TRULY DIFFICULT TO MAKE THE BALL COME DOWN.>>Drew: NANCHOFF HAD A GOAL A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO IN THE TORONTO MATCH. VERY ACTIVE.>>Eddie: GOAL OF THE WEEK, AS A MATTER OF FACT.>>Drew: NASHVILLE ATTACKING FROM THE LEFT. TRYING TO RUN THIS DOWNEN IT’S WASHINGTON. WASHINGTON TRIES TO CROSS IT IN. SENT BACK. TREMENDOUS FOOTWORK THERE, TRYING THE SHOT. ROWDIES ORGANIZE DEFENSIVELY. HERE COMES NANCHOFF.>>Eddie: GREAT JOB BY GEORGI HRISTOV. MAKING A RUN JUST TO COVER THAT.>>Drew: IT’S WORTH MENTIONING FROM OUR CONVERSATION EARLIER THIS WEEK. NASHVILLE HAS A SIZE ADVANTAGE. PLAYERS IN SET PIECES, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT ON THE ROWDIES IF THEY DO GET ONE IN CLOSE.>>Eddie: ONE OF THE THINGS THEY WORK DURING THE WEEK ON NOT GIVING UPSET PIECES, CORNER KICKS, FREE KICKS. BE CAREFUL. YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU DON’T DIVE IN OVER THE 18.>>Drew: MENSAH, NICELY DONE. SHOT ON. AKIRA FITZGERALD FALLING RIGHT ON TOP OF IT.>>Eddie: VERY DIFFICULT, IF THE BALL IS UP IN THE AIR.>>Drew: TAKEN AWAY. MORAL NEARLY MADE IT HAPPEN THAT TIME AS PICKENS GETS ON HIS FEET QUICKLY. ALEX MORRELL MAKING IT HAPPEN AGAIN.>>Eddie: THAT BLAZING SPEED. HE READ THE PLAY. ALMOST STOLE THE BALL. HE IS ABLE TO PICK ONE OF THOSE IN TRANSITION, HE WILL BE SO EFFECTIVE.>>Drew: 16th MINUTE AT AL LANG. WATCHING TAMPA BAY ROWDIES THIS TV TAMPA BAY. COMES BACK AND FORTH. PLAYING WITH PRETTY GOOD PACE IN THE FIRST HALF SO FAR. NANCHOFF WILL SENDS IT OVER. COLLECTS. NOW, FAR SIDE. TAMPA BAY WORKING AGAIN. GUENZATTI. GUENZATTI GOES DOWN. ANOTHER WHISTLE.>>Eddie: GUENZATTI WILL DO THE SAME THING FROM THE LEFT SIDE AS ALEX MORE IS TRYING TO DO TRYING TO WHIP BALLS FROM THE OUTSIDE-IN.>>Drew: NANCHOFF WILL GIVER THIS A RIDE WITH THAT LEFT FOOT^. KEEP AN EYE ON GEORGI HRISTOV. BALL IS IN THE AIR. STILL ALIVE! PICKENS TO HIS RIGHT TO DIVE ON IT.>>Eddie: GREAT MATCHUP. A LITTLE TOO MUCH UNDER THE BALL, LEFT FOOT. IT’S TO THE FAR POST. MAGALHÃES GETS HOT. GEORGI HRISTOV LOOKING FOR DEFLECTION TO THE FAR POST.>>THE FIRST REAL SHOT THE ROWDIES HAVE HAD ON GOAL AGAINST THEIR FORMER STAR MATT PICKENS. I TALKED TO THE ROWDIES YESTERDAY. THEY SAID PICKENS IS A GREAT GOALIE, WE ALSO KNOW HIS SECRETS, SOME OF HIS TENDENCY AND MAYBE WE CAN EXPLOIT SOME OF THEM TONIGHT.>>Eddie: YOU DEFINITELY LEARN IT’S TENDENCIES WHEN YOU PLAY WITH PLAYERS ALL THE TIME. YOU SEE HIM IN PRACTICE. SOME GOALKEEPERS DIVE TO ONE SIDE MORE THAN OTHERS. SOME ARE GREAT IN THE AIR OR SLOWER TO GET TO THE GROUND. ESPECIALLY THE FREE KICKS OR PENALTY KICKS AS WELL.>>Drew: LET’S SENDS IT DOWN ON THE FIELD. HEY, LYNDEN.>>Lynden: TALKING ABOUT HOW THE ROWDIES CAN POTENTIALLY EXPLOIT MATT PICKENS. HE SAID, HEY, I’M LOOKING TO GET ONE PAST YOU THIS GAMEAM THE ROWDIES ARE DEFINITELY LOOKING FORWARD IN PLAYING AGAINST THEIR FORMER TEAMMATE.>>Drew: ALEX WAS REALLY, REALLY IN GREAT SPIRITS YESTERDAY. HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT THAT. HE ALSO OPENED UP ABOUT THE LAST FEW YEARS, JUST NOT PLAYING, NOT GETTING INTO THE LINEUP, HAVING TO BE PATIENT AND FINALLY BEING GIVEN HIS CHANCE ATRE UNDERSTAND LIFE.>>Eddie: IT’S DIFFICULT, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU GO FROM BEING A STAR OR EVEN YOUR COLLEGE BEST PLAYER, YOU GO FROM BEING A STAR IN YOUR SCHOOL AND YOU GET TO THE PROS, YOU’RE THE 21st, 22nd PLAYER. A LOT OF TIMES YOU DON’T GET TO DRESS OR BE ON THE FIELD. DEFINITELY A LEARNING CURVE. YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO BE A PRO. YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO BE PATIENT. WHEN YOUR NUMBER IS CALLED, AS IT IS FOR HIM NOW, YOU HAVE TO PRODUCE. IT’S ALL ABOUT PRODUCTION AT THE PRO LEVEL.>>Drew: COACH COLLINS SAYS HE HAS NOT SCRATCHED THE SURFACE OF HOW GOOD OF A PLAYER HE COULD BE. NASHVILLE WILL TOSS IT IN WITH RYAN JAMES. 20th MINNAN STILL NO SCORE. ROWDIES HAVE HAD A FEW OPPORTUNITIES. THIS ONE WILL HEAD OUT. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK COMING UP FOR AKIRA FITZGERALD. SECONDS GAME AFTER THREE-GAME HOMESTAND FOR TAMPA BAY. ROWDIES RIGHT NOW IN EIGHTH PLACE IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE. CERTAINLY WANT TO MOVE UP THE STANDINGS. MORAL CAN’T SAVE IT.>>Eddie: IT’S A GOOD IDEA BY GUENZATTI. ALEX MORRELL WIDE OPEN AT THE RIGHT FLANK.>>Drew: DEFLECTS THAT BALL, GIVING HIS TEAM A CHANCE. HERE COMES NASHVILLE. NICE RUN BY LaGRASSA, SENDING IT FORWARD. MOLOTO WAITING FOR IT. THE BALL SKIPS PAST HIM ON THE FEET OF WINN. ALAN WINN WITH TWO GOALS THIS YEAR FOR NASHVILLE. ALEX DOYLE. LaGRASSA AGAIN. THAT IS FROM THE MIDDLE.>>Eddie: DOING A BETTER JOB OF KEEPING POSSESSION ON THE BALL.>>Drew: FOR VIEWERS YOUR NEXT CHANCE TO CATCH JOE COLE AND THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES ON THIS TV WILL BE FRIDAY JUNE 22nd. FRIDAY, NOT SATURDAY. GAME TIME 7:30. PRE-GAME AT 57 ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY. BALL LOST BY THE ROWDIES. NASHVILLE TERMS. MENSAH GETS IT OVER TO MOLOTO. HE WILL TAKE A SWINGEN IT’S A NASHVILLE GOAL.>>Eddie: LEBO MOLOTO, WE TALKED ABOUT HIS ABILITY TO PUT IT AWAY FOR NASHVILLE. HE DOES IT AGAIN HERE. IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF A BAD GIVE AWAY IN THE MIDDLE RIGHT THERE. DOESN’T QUITE GET EVERYTHING ON THAT BALL. IT’S A QUICK TURNAROUND. HE GETS THE BALL OUT WIDE. AND JUST HITS THE BALL TO THE NEAR POST. NOTHING FITZGERALD COULD DO. JUST LIKE THAT, NASHVILLE IS UP 1-0>>Drew: YOU WATCH THIS NASHVILLE TEAM PLAY. THEY ARE MLS CALIBER TEAM. THEY BEAT COLORADO A FEW NIGHTS AGO. NOT ALL OF THEIR STARTERS ARE ON THE PITCH. IT’S A TEAM WELCOME POSED. I TALK ABOUT THE DEFENSIVE% SHAPE. IT ALL STARTS OUT OF THE BACK. YOU SAW THE LAST ROUND FOR THEM, THEY KEPT THE BALL FOR TEN DIFFERENT TOUCHES BEFORE THEY GAVE IT AWAY. THEY ARE A GOOD CLUB. NUMBERS DON’T LIE. THERE IS A REASON THEY HAVEN’T DROP ADD GAME IN THE LAST NINE GAMES. USL TWITTER FEED KEEPS UP TO DATE WITH NEWS AROUND THE LEG 24/7. FOLLOW AT USL ON TWITTER.>>Eddie: ROWDIES HAVE TO GO BACK TO WHAT THEY WERE DOING, DEAL OUT OF THE BACK. KEEP REMIND THEM NOT TO GIVE THE BALL AWAY.>>Drew: JUNIOR FLEMMINGS KEEPING IT ALIVE. PICKENS HAD TO COME OUT OF GOAL. ROWDIES CANNOT GET POSSESSION.>>Eddie: GOOD CHANCE FLEMMINGS FROM KINGSTON, JAMAICA. TWO GOALS IN THAT TORONTO MATCH. LOOK AT ALL THE CHANCESE HAD. HE COULD EDDIE RODRIGUEZLY HAVE SEVEN OR EIGHT — HE COULD EASILY HAVE SEVEN OR EIGHT GOALS.>>Eddie: HE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME OF THOSE BACK, ESPECIALLY EARLY IN THE YEAR. AS OF LATE, HE HAS BEEN BEEN DOING A BETTER JOB IMPERRING THOSE CHANCES — CONVERTING THOSE CHANCES.>>Drew: MKANDAWIRE SENDS IT FORWARD. GORSKIE AND MORAL. ALEX MORRELL SQUEEZES A PASS THROUGH. JUNIOR FLEMMINGS ATTACKING. HERE COME THE ROWDIES. TRYING TO GET AHEAD IS HRISTOV. HE GOES DOWN. HE WILL NOT GET THE CALL.>>Eddie: APPEAR FOUL AGAINST THE DEFENDER. FLEMMINGS WITH THE ONE-TWO. YOU SEE THE WHOLE ENTIRE ROWDIES’ DEFENSE. PLAYERS WARMING UP. GEORGI HRISTOV HAS NOT SCORED A GOAL SINCE APRIL 21st. HOW DOES HE GET BACK INTO THE SCORING COLUMN?>>Eddie: AS A FORWARD, YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE CHANCES YOU GET ON THE BALL PLAYING FORWARD. HE HAS TO GET IN THERE AND TRY TO CREATE CHANCES. IT’S DIFFICULT WHEN YOU HAVEN’T SCORED IN A WHILE. HE HAS BEEN PLAYING NOR A LONG TIME. HE KNOWS HE HAS TO GET BACK. CREATE CHANCES. WHEN HE HAS A GOOD CHANCE, HE HAS TO PUT IT AWAY.>>Drew: A GOOD COMBINATION BETWEEN HIM AND FLEMMINGS. TWO DIFFERENT FORWARDS. SCORES FROM AROUND THE LEAGUE, INDY 11, 1-0 OVER ATLANTA. RED BULLS 2 IN CHARLOTTE. HOW ABOUT CINCINNATI GETTING AN MLS NOD, LEADING NORTH CAROLINA, 1-0. TORONTO, 1-0 LEAD AS WELL. CHARLESTON BATTERY, YOUR FORMER TEAM DOING BATTLE. HERE COMES THE ROWDIES. NANCHOFF WILL SET THE BALL DOWN. A LITTLE FRUSTRATED HERE.>>Eddie: HE IS RIGHT, BECAUSE NANCHOFF WAS GOING TO GO ON A BREAKAWAY. THERE IT IS. THAT’S A GREAT JOB BY NANCHOFF. HE IS ASKING FOR THAT. THAT TELLS YOU HE IS INTO THE GAME. HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON. THE FACT YOU ASK FOR IT, YOU PUT THE REFEREE ON NOTICE “WE’RE WATCHING.” GREAT JOB WITH THE BALL. THOSE ARE THE BALLS YOU WANT TO WIN IN TRANSITION. HE TAKES CARE OF TWO PLAYERS. YOU SEE THAT GRAB FROM BEHIND TO THE SHOULDER. GREAT JOB BY THE REFEREE. HE WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO CALL THAT.>>Drew: YELLOW CARD TO LAGRASSA OF NASHVILLE. GEORGI HRISTOV SETTING UP FOR TAMPA BAY. ROWDIES WANTS TO GET HIM INVOLVED. NANCHOFF LOFTS IT IN THE AIR. THERE’S THE SHOT. STILL ALIVE. THE SHOT, MKANDAWIRE GOES JUST HIGH. TAMPA BAY, A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITIES. THEY CAN’T CASH IN. A.TTAMIKA, A MATCHUP TO THE FAR POST PREDOMINANTLY A LEFT-FOOTED PLAYER.>>Drew: MKANDAWIRE, DOING A GOOD JOB ON THE BACK LINE FOR THE ROWDIES. HE STARTED OFF THE SEASON IN THE BOOTH WITH US. HE WAS NOT IN THE REGULAR ROTATION. COACH COLLINS HAS NEW LIFE IN HIM.>>Eddie: HE HAS DONE WELL EVER SINCE HE CAME INTO THE ROTATION^AM GARY SMITH FROM NASHVILLE TELLING THEM TO PLAY ONE TOUCH OUT OF THE BACK. MAKE IT DIFFICULT.>>GETTING AHEAD. RIGHT THERE WITH HIM. ROWDIES WORKING FOR THE CORNER. GOING DOWN AND THIS ONE SHOULD BE A CORNER KICK FOR THE ROWDIES AND THEIR FIRST OF THE MATCH. IT WILL BE A SET PIECE HERE. IT WILL BE NANCHOFF ON TOP OF IT. ROWDIES ALL AROUND THE GOAL MAKING MATT PICKENS’ JOB DIFFER IN THE FIRST 30. STILL LOOKING FOR THEIR FIRST GOAL. THE REFEREE HAVING A CHAT WITH FLEMMINGS. ALSO THE CAPTAIN WOODBERRY’ NOW MARKING IN THE BOX FOR THE EXTRA PUSHING AND SHOVING, NOT ALLOWED.>>Drew: NANCHOFF. A LITTLE ARC INTO THIS ONE. THE BALL WILL SKIP AWAY NOW. THE ROWDIES WILL COME OUT AND PLAY IT. IT WILL BE VINGAARD. RYAN JAMES FOR THE CORNER. THE BALL SHOULD GO OFF HIS FEET. THAT WILL BE A ROWDIES CORNER KICK. GREAT JOB BY MARTIN VINGAARD.>>Eddie: GREAT JOB NOT GIVING UP ON THE BALL WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS GOING OUT. QUALITY CORNER KICK.>>Drew: THIS BALL SENT IN. DEFENDED WELL. MORAL. ALEX MORRELL. STILL BATTLING. IT WILL BE A ROWDIES’ THROW-IN. JUST SEEING THAT FIRST GOAL GO IN, EDDIE. THE ROWDIES, IT WILL BE SO HUGE.>>Eddie: THIS IS THE TIME THEY NEED TO PUT A LITTLE PRESSURE. SCORING A GOAL WOULD BE HUGE FOR THEM.>>Drew: GUENZATTI SENDS IT BACK. VINGAARD AT THE POINT OF ATTACK. MKANDAWIRE. RIGHT SIDE. HERE IS MORAL. MORAL. A LITTLE BIT OF HESITATION. NOW MOVING TO HIS LEFT. ALEX MORRELL. CONTACT. REFEREE RIGHT THERE ON TOP OF IT. NO WHISTLE. BALL GETS DEFLECTED. MKANDAWIRE, FORMER NORTH CAROLINA FC STAR WILL START IT FOR NASHVILLE.>>Eddie: ALEX MORRELL HOLDING ON TO THE BALL A LITTLE TOO MUCH. AS SOON AS HE MAKES THE CUT, HE HAS TO LOOK FOR THE BALL ON THE GROUND. GEORGI HRISTOV OR EVEN FLEMMINGS. THEY KNOW THEY HAVE THE SPEED. HE WILL TRY TO GET BEHIND THE DEFENDERS.>>Drew: LaGRASSA. NASHVILLE SC FLEW WHAT THEY WERE DEALING WITH COMING IN TONIGHTEN THAT WAS AN EASY CALL, OFFSIDES ON NASHVILLE, RYAN JAMES AHEAD OF THE BACK.>>Eddie: HE MAKES THAT DIAGONAL RUN BEHIND THE ENTIRE FORWARD. THE REFEREE WITH THE BEST VIEW. GORSKIE SENDS IT TO FLEMMINGS. HAD TIME AND SPACE BUT JUST COULD NOT TURN AROUND AND ATTACK FOR TAMPA BAY. FLEMMINGS WITH A DIFFICULT BALL BEHIND.

IT WILL DEFINITELY IMPACT NASHVILLE. THEY ARE NOT USED TO PLAYING THIS HUMIDITY. A TEAM THAT IS NOT VERY WELL RESTED. THEY WENT TO THE BENCH EARLY TO SWITCH SOME STARTERS. SOME OF THE PLAYERS HAVE BEEN PLAYING 90-PLUS MINUTES. THE MID-WEEK OPEN CLUB GAMES. RIGHT AROUND THE 70th OTHER 80th MINUTE, ROWDIES SHOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HEAVY LEGS.>>Drew: COACH GARY SMITH, HIS FIRST SEASON WITH THIS NASHVILLE TEAM. HE SAYS TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE WHEN YOU’VE GOT THE BALL, BUT WELLE HAVE BEEN ON THE SAME PAGE WHEN WE DON’T HAVE THE BALL. HE STRESSES THAT.% THAT SOMETIMES GETS OVERLOOKED BY TEAMS.>>Eddie: IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE BALL THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TIME, YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR SHAPE. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE IF YOU ARE SPREAD OUT, YOU DON’T GIVE SO MUCH SPACE UP BEHIND. VERY IMPORTANT NOT ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE THE BALL. WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE IT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO GET THE BALL BACK?>>Drew: 34th MINUTE. HUNTER GORSKIE WILL TOSS IT IN FOR TAMPA BAY. ROWDIES HAVE HAD LOTS OF ACTION AROUND THE NASHVILLE GOAL.

OUTSIDE OF THE LIVE EVENT, THE MATCH EXPERIENCE, OUTSIDE OF THAT, WE BROADCAST IS THE WINDOW INTO THE GROUNDS FOR THE LEAGUE. YOU HAVE TO CAPTURE THAT IN A COMPELLING WAY WITH A QUALITY BROADCAST GOOD A LARGE PORTION OF THE TEAMS WORK WITH OUR PARTNER VISTA ON REMOTE INTEGRATION. THAT MEANS THE PRODUCTION OF THE GAME IS HANDLED MOSTLY AWAY FROM SITE. SO THE WAY THESE GAMES WILL WORK, A TRUCK WILL SHOW UP LOCALLY AT THE STADIUM. THERE WILL BE FOUR CAMERA OPERATORS THERE. THE SIGNALS ARE SENT TO FORT LAUDERDALE AND LOCAL LIMB AT VISTA, THE GAME IS CUT. THE GAME HAS GRAPHICS PUT ON TOP OF IT.

EVEN FOR THE GAMES THAT AREN’T DONE WITH THIS PRODUCTION, ALL GAMES WILL FLOW THROUGH VISTA AND ALL THE SIGNALS HAVE TO GET SENT OUT ALL OVER THE WORLD TO REACH THE FANS OF USL. BECAUSE OF THOSE PRODUCTIONS, WE WILL OFTENTIMES HAVE FIVE OR SIX GAMES GOING ON AT ONE TIME. NOBODY IS DOING SPORTS PRODUCTIONS ON THIS LEVEL CONSISTENTLY.>>WE HAVE BUILT ONE OF THE LALARGEST REMY PRODUCTION MODELS OF ANY LEAGUE IN THE WORLD. WE ARE ABLE TO DELIVER ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD THROUGH OUR PARTNERS AT ESPN, FULLY PRODUCED MATCHES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

GREAT TEMPO. CREATED SEVERAL CHANCES. ARE YOU LOOKING TO MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT?>>PUTT THE BALL IN THE BACK OF THE NET. THAT’S THE ADJUSTMENT WE NEED TO MAKE. I’M SURE WE’LL DO THAT. WE HOPE TO GET THE JOB DONE. IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE, WE NEED THE FINISHING.>>Lynden: THANKS, COACH.>>Drew: SHORT AND TO THE POINTS FROM NEILL COLLINS. HIS FOURTH MATCH AS HEAD COACH FOR THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES. SLEFTING TO SEE WHAT ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE. ROWDIES A VERY CONFIDENT TEAM. AS LYNDEN SAID, THEY HAD CHANCE AFTER CHANCE. IT’S JUST A MATTER OF SOMEBODY STEPPING UP AND FINISHING.>>Eddie: NEILL IS RIGHT. IT’S ABOUT FINISHING YOUR CHANCES. THEY PRODUCE THEM AND YOU THINK ABOUT THIS, NASHVILLE ONLY HAD ONE CLEAR CHANCE AND THEY WERE ABLE TO CAPITALIZE ON THAT. ON THE OTHER SIDE, THEY HAVE BEEN CONTENT WITH PLAYING DEFENSE AND CONTROLLING THE TEMPO, WHETHER THEY WANT TO GO ON OR STAY. THEY JUST STAYED HOME AND SWITCHED THE POINT OF ATTACK. THE ROWDIES NEED TO PRESS WITH A LITTLE MORE CONSISTENCY UNTIL THEY FINAL THE BACK OF THE NET.>>Drew: I BET THERE WILL BE TWO OR THREE. LEO FERNANDES REPRESENTS THE SUBSUB FOR THE ROWDIES AS ALEX MORRELL WILL HEAD TO THE BENCH. BROUGHT TO YOU BY KAPOK MARKETING.

AKINYODE FOR NASHVILLE DIME LOT OF PLAY GOES THROUGH THE CENTER OF NASHVILLE. HE DICTATES THE PACE OF PLAY. HE SIDES IF THEY ATTACK FROM SIDE TO SIDE.>>Drew: LEO FERNANDES GIVING IT A RIDE ON THE RIGHT SIDE. TRYING TO GET ON THE BOARD HERE. WILL IT BE A CORNER KICK? YES, IT WILL BE. CORNER KICK BROUGHT TO YOU BY ASHLEY HOME STORE. ROWDIES TO GET A SHOT ON. HE IS MOVING TO HIS LEFT AND IT WILL BE ANOTHER CORNER KICK BROUGHT TO YOU BY ASHLEY HOME STORE.>>MAGALHÃES.

STRIKING IT WITH HIS LEFT FOOT. NASHVILLE SOMEHOW IS ABLE TO KEEP IT IN. I THINK THE ONE PLAYER FOR THE ROWDIES THAT IT AFFECTS THE MOST WHEN HE IS NOT ON THE FIELD, WHEN JOE COLE IS NOT PLAYING, GEORGI HRISTOV CERTAINLY FEELS THE EFFECTS, DOESN’T HE?>>Eddie: THAT’S A GREAT ONE-TWO PUNCH THEY HAVE, ONE-TWO COMBINATION. I THINK JOE HAS THE ABILITY TO FIND HRISTOV. THEY HAVE A GREAT NO-LOOK PASS. JOE KNOWS WHERE HRISTOV WILL BE.>>Drew: GEORGI HRISTOV WAITING FOR THE RED BULL TO BE DELIVERED SO HE CAN BECOME THE ROWDIES’ ALL-TIME LEADING SCORER.>>Eddie: DEFENSE ARE WAITING FOR THAT AS WELL. GORSKIE HAVING A CHAT WITH THE REFEREE. HE IS CALLING FOR A FOUL. GORSKIE IS SAYING THAT HE HIS JERSEY WAS PULLED BEFORE HE CALLED IT.>>Drew: SET PIECE COMING UP FOR NASHVILLE. THEY WILL GET ORGANIZED. FLEMMINGS AT THE 18. LACHOWECKI ALSO ON GUARD. FITZGERALD. CALMLY IN FOR TAMPA BAY. EDDIE, DO YOU THINK AS WE CONTINUE ON HERE IN THIS MATCH THAT OUR VISITING TEAM WILL TRY AND SIT BACK MORE AND MORE KNOWING THEY HAVE A AND TAMPA BAY STRUGGLING TO SCORE, JUST SIT BACK AND DEFEND YOUR OWN GOAL.>>Eddie: AS THE GAME GOES ON, WE TALKED ABOUT THEY WILL START FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE HEAVY LEGS FROM THE GAMES THEY HAVE PLAYED. THE FACT THEY ARE AT 1-0 AND PLAYING AGAINST A GREAT TEAM HERE. I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE THEIR STRATEGY, SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR THE GAME TO COME TO THEM. NOT GO FORWARD UNLESS IT’S A –>>Drew: LONG RUN FOR LEO FERNANDES GOT CUT OFF.>>Eddie: MOLOTO, YOU SEE ON THE BALL RIGHT NOW, HE DOES A GOOD BIT OF THAT. LOOK HOW HE PLAYS THE ONE-TWO.

PICKENS MAY HAVE GOTTEN A TOUCH.>>Eddie: GEORGI HRISTOV IS SAYING HE GOT A TOUCH ON THAT. TALK ABOUT 40 YARDS OUT. TAKES A QUICK TOUCH, LOOKS UP. LETS IT GO. I THINK MIGHT HAVE BEEN RIGHT. MAYBE A SLIGHT TOUCH. MATT PICKENS. YOU SEE HOW MUCH THE BALL WAS CURVING AWAY FROM THE GOALKEEPER. A LITTLE HIGHER AND THAT COULD HAVE BEEN TROUBLE FOR THE VISITING TEAM.>>Drew: I LIKE THE MENTALITY, THOUGH, OF FERNANDES. THE CROSS HEADED OUT BY THE ROWDIES.>>Eddie: YOU GOT TO LIKE THE MENTALITY, TAKING A SHOT FROM 40 OUT. THAT TELLS YOU YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.>>Drew: EXACTLY. MENSAH. MENSAH.

KEEP IN MIND TAMPA BAY HAS NOT LOST IN OVER ONE YEAR HERE ON THEIR HOME PITCH. THEY CERTAINLY DO NOT WANT TONIGHT TO BE THE NIGHT. SEVERAL CHANCES IN THIS GAME, NASHVILLE THIS FAR BUT UNABLE TO CASH ONE IN.>>Eddie: AS YOU MENTIONED EARLIER, DREW, EVERY ONE OF THE NASHVILLE PLAYERS WILL SIT BACK AT THE 50-YARD LINE, SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR THE ROWDIES TO BRING IT.>>Drew: COMMUNICATION THERE RIGHT AT THE END, LACHOWECKI.

TRYING TO SLOW THINGS DOWN. KERVE ENERGY. POSSESS.>>Eddie: THEY ARE METHODICAL ABOUT THE WAY THEY COME OUT. THEY KNOW THEY NEED TO KEEP THE BALL. KEEP POSSESSION. DON’T GIVE ANYTHING FREE AROUND THE 18. NO GIVE AWAYS. NOW THEY WILL CONTROL THE TEMPO. WHEN THEY MAKE A MISTAKE, THEY WILL TRY TO GO FORWARD, ESPECIALLY WITH THAT NO. 10 MOLOTO.
