The highlight of this game is how hot the 4th official is.

1-1 final. DC had the two best chances of the second half, but really a quite soporific game

Fabio is the worst striker at shooting that I think I've ever seen in MLS.

Struber on the post-game called out the RB development first philosophy. Frustrated at having a baby group.

I'd have to hear it again but It think this grossly misrepresents what he said. He was saying that in the end the results are what matter most and that they're not here right now, but it did not at all sound like he was complaining about the philosophy.

Yeah I just listened again. Gingras asked him if young guys like Yearwood and Sowe getting out there and doing things provided a silver lining for the struggles. He basically answered by saying that development is nice but that his biggest job is to win games and make the playoffs and that the team isn't getting results. 

 

In no way was he calling out the philosophy. At best he called out some players' lack of killer instincts.

I heard frustration, also, take a look at the glare he gives the camera after finishing the interview.

Yeah he was clearly frustrated that the team is playing like shit, isn't getting results, and will probably miss the playoffs. There was nothing there about criticizing the philosophy itself or how young the team was. Michelle asked a somewhat leading question about development as a silver lining and he rejected it. But he was not accusing the team of having the wrong priorities nor did he say anything about wishing his team was older.

that cut back to Fabio was so far off target i laughed.  I'd be surprised at this point if we trigger his buy option.  Can't pay a material transfer fee for him while hes on a $400k salary.  Very likable and does a lot of good things but can't score to save his life

Didn't we already trigger it earlier this year?

The Good:

  • Reyes was fantastic, if he can play this well consistently and stay healthy then he and Long are going to make a top notch CB pairing next year
  • Yearwood has had a goal coming for a long time. He still struggles to put together complete 90 minute games, but his upside is so high I can't help but want him to stick around. He's the only midfielder we have who can actually drive the ball forward.
  • Struber is at least trying new shit, for better or worse.

The Bad:

  • Struber's new shit ain't working. The new shape did nothing to solve our attacking woes, we're still stuck creating chances entirely through turnovers or route one play. It's tough to say whether its tactics, personnel, or both. We don't have a single decent attacking midfielder on the roster. Struber seems pretty confident in every post game interview that the tactics are fine and the players just lack hunger, but almost two dozen games into the season they still sure do look lost as to where to go with the ball.
  • Our strikers are still awful finishers. Klimala's shooting motion takes ages. NFL analysts love to harp on a QB's release time, well Klimala's is downright geriatric. 

The Ugly:

  • Screwed once again by FIFA's asinine ruling that defenders aren't allowed to have arms
  • DC's coach and his cringy wanna-be hipster glasses. He looks like a douchebag dad trying to look cool in front of his kid's friends but doesn't realize he's a few years behind the times.

He is gone sooner than later. He knows hes going to be the first manager in 12 years to miss the playoffs and Red Bulls strategy isnt producing results that paint him in a positive light. I can see him cutting and running if the right European offer comes in.
