There's a stat on American Soccer Analysis called Goals Added that basically takes every action a player makes on the ball and assesses how it impacts a team's chances of either scoring or conceding.

 

Luquinhas ranked 99th in the league in that stat, 38th among wingers/midfielders.  On a per 90 basis, he's hanging out in the 130s.  There's a lot of room to upgrade from him.


Brian White is first with +.23. Unbelievable. Fucking Thelwell and Struber.

 

Interestingly, the highest Metro is Duncan at +.11 (minimum 1500 mins). Tolkin is next at +.08. That ranks 4th and 6th for fullbacks. Says a lot about this team!

He went a calendar year with 1 goal, 1 assist. For a DP. Stats are not everything, but that's just trash.


I agree stats are not everything but who was his supporting cast?

He also created contacted that resulted in many pks and other set piece goals.

Seems like many of our set piece opportunities were created by him.

The metric is slightly flawed.

If your the set piece taker for your team, you have a better chance to influence the outcome of your rating.

It also slighly rewards drawing fouls but some fouls like pks and around the box are more important then getting fouled in midfield.

So a guy like Luq, who's primary move is to draw fouls, should be way higher up on this list.  Shows you how bad he is at everything else.

As well is a rare "attacking" midfielder not allowed around set pieces because his shot sucks so much!

Jochen hopes to have coach and SD before XMas.

 

"Need to raise our standards."

 

Decided with Mario Gomez that a reset was needed.

"Many clubs in MLS would consider 2019 to today a success."

 

Many... right. But it's easy to list those who would laugh at that... they won TROPHIES.

Is there a stream or are you there?

Good question from Friedlander about how Jochen's perception of the league has changed and how it alters the type of players we need.

 

No real answer except for "difference makers".

Good question
With his experience or with Messi joint or both
Sounds like we need higher level player is what he is saying

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.
