Kickers Prediction Game of Awesome Round 13

Prior to every home game a panel of so called experts will predict the outcome of the Richmond Kickers game. Each expert receives 1 point for each correct prediction. At the end of the season the winner gets a trophy and pack of gum.

Hopefully the soccer faithful have recovered from the BIGGEST GAME® ever in Richmond and are ready to join the Red Army in the stands for the Kickers last three home games. The last three games before the playoffs, when the Kickers can actually win a trophy and stuff.

The Charlotte Eagles are the opponent and they have a fairly dismal record of 7-12-3 while the Kickers still sit in second place in the league with 12-1-9 and that’s not a typo, that’s nine ties. That’s more ties than a JC Penny Father’s Day sale. If you prefer the English word, “draw”, that’s more draws than a ……. I got nothing.

Richmond-Kickers-Logo My head, which supposedly in charge of logic, tells me to pick draw. My heart which is a duplicitous, conniving, black speck of evil is saying, all Kickers all day. Logic has never been my strong point so I’m sticking with conniving and evil. As a bonus I’m predicting a red card and two yellows. 8

Red Army

Richmond-Kickers-Logo To paraphrase one of society’s greatest wordsmiths, all we do is win, no matter what (please ignore all the draws). This is especially true at home. As long as the soccer gods give us a reprieve on their game of Last Kicker Standing, this should be another victorious night. 3-1 Kickers 10

Richmond Kickers

Richmond-Kickers-Logo Since this may be the last time we will ever play the Charlotte Eagles, why not go out with a bang and get a win? It was All Shay All Day in Wilmington, so who’s to say that it won’t be All Shay All Day back at home in Richmond, with Deli also scoring goals since that’s kinda what he does. 8

Richmond-Kickers-Logo KICKERS WIN! We’re getting toward the serious end of the season, and our hometown heroes are just four points behind Orlando City in the USL table. Orlando just handed Charlotte a 4-1 ass-kicking, so I’m predicting the Kickers will do the same. I also expect two repeats from the Crystal Palace game: Samuel Asante will nutmeg any opponent dumb enough to try and tackle him, and the good people of Section O will sing and shout themselves hoarse. 8

RVA News Soccer Guru (Richard Hayes): All of Richard’s soccer knowledge comes from playing FIFA on the original Playstation and standing in bars, drinking, and yelling at the television. He also helps run RVA DCU and American Outlaws Richmond Chapter, which mainly involves drinking and yelling at televisions.

Red Army (Matt Myers): Matt was sent off by Leigh Cowlishaw in a summer camp scrimmage as a pre-teen but has not held that against the team. He’s coming to grips with being a relatively old man now after seeing the youngsters in the Red Army and on the Kickers roster. He’s also attended way more matches than he should admit to, especially for having lived in Richmond a total of one out of the last 13 years.

Richmond Kickers (Kickeroo): The Kicker from down under. He doesn’t really like anyone who isn’t a fan of the Kickers. A daredevil who will pretty much try anything and everything but would rather not talk (on the advice from lawyers) about the incident with the scooter and the Flaming Hoop of Death. He’s also sensitive marsupial who enjoys long walks on a dew covered soccer field and watching the sun set behind the goal post. He also shares something with the new Kickers beer, Kick it Hunny: Hops.

Total Soccer Show (Daryl Grove): Daryl is English so every thing he says about footsoccerball naturally carries more weight because he says it a British accent. He is also part of the excellent local radio show and podcast Total Soccer Show that keeps track of all soccer related things in an intelligent and fun way. If you’re not listening to the Total Soccer Show you need to change that post haste.
