Lost 2-0.  I guess you can't be too disappointed while missing your best attacker, midfielder, and starting goalkeeper, but still, we've yet to score a goal in the run of the play after 3 games.


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.

Wonder if they will draw appropriate conclusions now that we should not compete in MLS with Under-21 academy squad or will they wait till July when we are in deep sh&t...to realize that we need to add experience and quality.

what??

Thats exactly the conclusion to draw from a few preseason games without some of our best players.  And the offensive usually takes time to come togheter.

So much for the constant cries about our academy.

Last year, we scored 5 goals in FOUR different preseason games (including vs Montreal, ahem), and proceeded to get shutout in 5 of first 6 MLS games.

good to see Findley trial working out...Not

I saw a couple Rayo OKC games last year. Findley looked terrible. His last good season was 2010 and he only had 5 goals that year.

A season after that we had Luke Rodgers who scored 9 goals.

Not saying we'd be better off with Rodgers on trial... But his prime was more recent than Findley's.

Red Bull has tightened the purse strings a ridiculous amount.

The purse strings on preseason wright-ups have been tightened as well. It's like they are not even trying. Aren't there any interns who want to dabble in sports journalism?

Was Ali also secretly in charge of writing up game summaries?

Wright-ups. Giggle.

Agreed, these have been pathetic.
State a couple facts. Post the goal scorers in parentheses, rather than who provided the assist. Post only our lineup.
