Dueling…ummm…Tifos in Philly

Sometimes mid-season tifos make us long for the elaborate demonstrations in week one.

Now that we’re a few weeks into the MLS regular season, the tifos are starting to reflect a mid-season “meh.” Granted, we can’t blame the fans because asking for a grand tifo every week is like asking a college sophomore to start a midterm paper more than 12 hours before the deadline. It just ain’t happening.

So those elaborate demonstrations we tend to see in the early weeks are now evolving into more muted showings in mid-season.

This past week, the Philadelphia Union hosted the Portland Timbers. Away fans are never expected to bring much to the table, but Portland does carry a nice tifo on the road. Outdone only slightly by the Union supporters’ banner.
