Well, we appear to be in a real shield race.

 

-------------BWP---------

Royer----Kaku---Rza

-------Davis--Adams

Taxi Long Parker Murillo

 

Hopefully keep rolling along.  Montreal certainly beatable. One player of significance who seems to find a way to get at least one good chance a game.  

 

Need the offense to start scoring some.  We won't be able to ride the 1-0 games forever and we are getting more than 1 chance a game.  Let's score some goals.

Throw Lawrence, Kaku, BWP, Long, and Royer back into the lineup. Admas will have played a lot in this stretch so he'll be a candidate to be rested but he's a very young guy so maybe we can push it with him. 

 

Only real other rotation question is if to rest Parker considering he's played every minute these games.

Team will officially qualify for the playoffs with a win. 

A NE loss or draw or a DC loss also clinches a playoff birth for us regardless of what happens.

We cannot be caught by Orlando, Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal already.

Feeling greedy and want the 3 points here with what should be our usual starting XI. Finishing off this brutal 5 game stretch 3-0-2 would be fantastic and would cause me to mostly forget the Smurf disappointment. 

 

Last time we scored in Montreal was August 5, 2015 in a 1-1 draw. Sam assisted by Grella. Also, Dilly Duka got the assist on the Montreal goal in that one.

On the DC game the Fox announcers talked about how Tyler Adams is hoping to be called up for the friendlies next week.

 

Obviously he is, but I sure hope he doesn't get the call this time around, especially after this stretch of games.  We already had that episode earlier in the year where 4 MLS players got the call, 3 of which were from Metro.

 

What's crazy is at some point this season we had 3 games in hand over Atlanta, by the time they next play they will have 2 games in hand on us (and hopefully be 4 points back!) 


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I think both Long and Adams won't start at MTL, since they're both gonna get the call up.

Royer Kaku Etienne

Rza Davis

Why wouldn't they start? USA v. Brazil is 6 days later and in New Jersey. They would have plenty of time to rest.

Agree

Start BWP, Kaku, and not Collin and we get the 3 points.

Also I couldnt care less about Long or Adams being tired for a meaningless friendly under an interim coach.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

-------------------BWP

-------Royer-----Kaku----Etienne

--------------Davis--Rza

Lawrence--Long--Escobar--Murillo

------------------Robles

 

I think Adams is on the bench to begin - he's played a ton of minutes lately, and Davis/Rza is a solid midfield combo.

Agreed re Adams. Long and Parker should both be able to start. 

 

I think Ivan might (or should) be ahead of Etienne and Muyl on the wing depth chart already. Guess we'll know after the international break.

Nobody really cares about the friendly, but it doesn't mean Long/Adams won't be going 100% during the camp and in the games. Long should play in Canada as he got a rest yesterday, but Adams should get time off at some point.

Play Escobar in the back.  Guy needs minutes and to get chemistry with Parker and Long in case.  Ok for Parker to rest.

Plus if we want to keep Escobar, for next season or happy for next season, guy should see a bit of time.

 

Rest Adams - don't Felipe him.  

 

DE7 should start this one.  Sub on Ivan.  give him a chance to recover.  He is not used to summer heat and humidity.
