#1381971 Metro - KC Game Thread

Posted by Komba on Yesterday, 10:40 PM

We need offensive talent.  It really just comes down to that. I see some people giving Fabio credit and I like that he works hard but there was nothing that would suggest he's going to be the answer.

CCJ is a waste up there.  I've never been a big fan of him anywhere on the field but definitely not up there.  He just isn't a good enough passer.  Never has been.  

Gutman appears to be a big improvement over Pendant and that will help big time.

Parker trade is still a massive mistake.

Carmona is super green but shows a lot of physical ability to like.

Diarra was great because he can break up plays.  Him coming out definitely changed things.  Especially because I HATE Valot anywhere that's not an offensive position.  He offers nothing defensively.  Scared we have to rely on this guy because he manages to get hurt so often too.

The biggest hole on this team going forward will be the 10 spot though. The guys we have coming will hopefully bring something to the table at those other spots, but watching this formation, those top 3 spots are everything and we don't have a guy to play the 10.  I would probably put Valot to be honest.  Clark is the only other maybe.

#1381648 Lineup for 2021

Watching Davis acting in such a leadership role during the All Access thing for the DC game makes me think that he's not coming out of the lineup a ton.  Think we can pencil him in at the 6 spot.  Lineup below is when when we have everyone.








#1381411 Frankie Amaya tampering

Posted by Komba on 09 April 2021 - 11:13 AM

Just watching some of his game against us last year.  this kid was built to press.  He fits our system perfectly.  He can win the ball for sure, but shouldn't be played as a 6. 

#1381402 Frankie Amaya tampering

Posted by Komba on 09 April 2021 - 10:24 AM

Everyone says he has great energy and ball winning so that's a good thing.  Certainly fits.

Wonder if he's best for those 2 number 8 spots because it sounds like he has too much to offer going forward that him playing at the 6 won't utilize him best.

#1381068 Kaku got out

Posted by Komba on 04 April 2021 - 08:18 PM

Meh... If he gets injured then the value could be gone.  Especially if it's serious.  I'm surprised he's able to play given an arbitrator ruled that he's legitimately under contract with a different league and franchise.  Makes very little sense.

#1380878 Patryk "The Devil" Klimala rumour

Well, this is certainly notable.




Celtic striker Patryk Klimala

#1380340 Home Opener vs KC

Posted by Komba on 10 March 2021 - 03:41 PM

The Thelwell and Struber press conference excited me enough to look forward to this even though it's very much a total rebuild.

#1380143 Fabio

Posted by Komba on 07 March 2021 - 11:51 AM

This dude is hopefully good... He's really the main difference between this year and last year when it comes to offense.

#1380116 Lineup for 2021

Posted by Komba on 05 March 2021 - 02:33 PM

If we signed that Sead guy and hadn't traded Parker, I could feel reasonably optimistic about this team.  Outside of that, there are just too many unknowns and one thing I've learned over years of being a fan, so many unknowns don't work out.  I'll be at every home game rooting, but I just don't see a team that can honestly contend for a title.

#1380002 Cameron Harper from Celtic

Posted by Komba on 02 March 2021 - 04:32 PM

Yeah, I never mind getting guys like Harper, we just needed a no doubter on top of it all.  At least one no-doubter.

#1379928 Youba Diarra on loan from Salzburg

Posted by Komba on 01 March 2021 - 04:56 PM

He looks really mobile from that video which is good but that's also before 2 knee surgeries?  I'm hopeful but hard to expect a lot.

#1379796 Lineup for 2021

Posted by Komba on 26 February 2021 - 05:04 PM

I'm starting to lean towards there being a misunderstanding of the quality of MLS compared to what we have... That will prove out this season save a significant addition.

#1378411 Long to be loaned?

Posted by Komba on 29 January 2021 - 09:26 AM

Seems to be a real market for Long right now.  And if he actually does have any shot at going to Liverpool, we can't be standing in the way.  No matter how much worse it makes us.

#1377908 Haksabanovic linked to Red Bull, apparently to us

Posted by Komba on 23 January 2021 - 03:29 PM

In a normal world, I wouldn't mind this.  But with this team, there's no reason for anyone to be confident that the team will pivot and actually sign an alternative.

#1377708 Parker could be, and is, traded

Posted by Komba on 20 January 2021 - 03:27 PM

Then I would question why we weren't going to re-sign him.  The guy is 27 at a position where you can remain good after 30.  If he was a forward or a winger who's game was predicated on speed then I would understand.


It is what it is, but I disagree with the move.  I'm hopeful Reyes is good for sure.
