There were few alternatives against Montreal.  DE7 is not a striker.  Jorgenson has looked worse with his chances already.  I like the fact that they gave hime a chance.

So bwp's job is to recieve the ball 40 yards from goal, while being tackled by three defenders, then, single-handedly move the ball toward goal and score.  This is at least 60% of our offesnsive gameplan.  Great.

The other problem is shooting from distance takes a lot of natural knack as well and other than maybe Kemar or Royer who else can even shoot well from distance...

But at the very least shooting from distance can create a corner, a rebound to be capitalized, the opponent to respect come out of their shape.. Or even a keeper error and a goal

Davis and Rza should be shooting from distance.

Just buy one of those new condos they put up.  Problem solved.

At least if Atlanta wins we are in CCL.  If Portland wins then at least Atlanta loses.  Either way I can be happy.

My hopeful spin is that some non-regulars may get a chance to prove themselves for TFC vs Atlanta.

A Dallas loss or tie vs DC would mean that all weatern conference teams finish below us.

Things to do:
1) crush the hated Scum's playoff hopes.
2) crush the hated TFC playoff hopes.
3)  crush Atlanta's shield hopes.

Could be a very satisfying end of the regular season.  Or not.

I thought he was better at that role than DE7.

It was surprisingly pretty soccer from a group of very young guys who hadn't played together before, even allowing for the shitty opponent.   We could have easily scored several.  Credit to Woly and the entire system.
Armas got it done again, with some very bold choices, but listening to him afterwards made me miss Marsch and his Princetonian eloquence.   He has Petke's inarticulateness without Petke's charm. 

After a while, princetonian eloquence sounds like political double speak.  I like JM but I find Armas refreshing.  Not that it matters.  We're still winning at the moment.

I thought it was pretty entertaining.  Except for the "in-game" Guzan interview.

Just move Davis up and slot in Rza.  That's my expert opinion.
