Spotlight: Anton Tinnerholm vs. LAFC


The TinnerBOOM isn’t just a cracker or a Swedish right-back…

The TinnerBOOM is a state of mind, and a fighting spirit that was embodied by all of the City boys that touched the pitch on Sunday evening at the Banc of California Stadium.

Tinnerholm said after the match, “After last week we talked about how we did not show the fighting spirit, and today we showed the fighting spirit, I think everybody showed it.”

But maybe no one more so than the man himself.

Anton made himself at home all over the pitch, providing dangerous overlapping wing play and crunching tackles across two systems and 90 minutes, all on the way to earning a big road point that gets the Boys in Blue back on track.

The closing stages of the match were punctuated by Tinnerholm flying into aerial duels, putting his body on the line to preserve the draw, and even limping to the finish after Vieira had used all three subs to get City back on level terms.

All in a day’s work for the TinnerBOOM.
