I believe that hes just been doing work in the gym


A long time ago someone once said to me that the AVERAGE amount of time it takes for a player to go from on field activity to back in the starting 11 is twice the amount of time he spent injured and NOT doing on field activities. Did that make sense?

Hes been out what now? 1 month? So if he started on field activities tomorrow that would put him back in the starting 11 around August 1st. And even then he wont be in prime form. Im starting to get concerned.

it's why we have 3 other strikers who are getting plenty of PT with the 1st team and reserves. they're getting them out there. atm, i'm down with white and barlow going hard for the 1st team. i think this is what we're gonna deal with in the foreseeable future.

Wasn't BWP on the training field a few weeks ago, just not with other players?

Groin is a pretty tough injury to come back from.   From running a lot to run marathons in my early 20s, I always found groin, hamstring and achilles injuries the most annoying to come back from.  Just walking around normally can make them worse and you pretty much feel them the whole day.  Also, if you come back too soon from it, the injury is going to come back for sure.  So, I doubt he is able to run and maintain match fitness.  He is a professional athlete and has a lot of resources at his disposal but I would be shocked if he comes back before the 28th of June.

I expect others to carry the team until the playoffs.
Then BWP will lead us to win the MLS Cup!



Did I forget to take my meds? Take too much?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Annoying injury. Ive had two of them in the past five years and it took 6 months to totally go away.

I like the play of Kaku since his return. Hes been engaged and his body language has improved exponentially.

Great half, just couldn't finish. Royer has to put at least one of his 3 or 4 golden chances away.

Great game so far from Taxi, White, Royer and Kaku.

Everyone else not good enough. Tarek, Davis, and Rzatkowski in particular with way too many unforced errors. Davis and Rzatkowski are really driving me nuts. Too slow in transition, too many touches, too many poor touches and poor passes.

Murillo is useless. The first chance he blasted into row z made me want to light myself on fire. The second one where he had the goal at his mercy made me want to jump out a window.

Also, White spent a good 20 minutes winning aerial battles and knocking balls into space...with no one running onto them...sooooo...wtf exactly was the game plan?

Game is there for the taking. Some of these guys need to wake up.
