#1346288 Metro - Atlanta Game Thread

Phenomenal effort especailly defensively. Can't even think of one real great scoring opportunity for ATL. Even if it took some last ditch defending Robles didn't have to make many saves. Great team effort to have that happen while playing a man down for so long. 

 

Hopefully this is the type of win that catapults us to some more momentum and we can start making up some ground in the standings. 

 

 

Also, fuck Atlanta.

 Yet De Rossi was still out there handling business....

Same for Ribery... I want Ribery and Robben ans De Rossi... Next someone is gonna sy they'd rather start Etienne or Omir over Ribery or Robben?!?!

We have different definitions of handling business. The track record shows that older guys who you can't categorize as athletic anymore don't cut it in this league. De Rossi's legs have gone. Once that goes he's got nothing left.

 

No Etienne and Omir are obviously not better but there is something to be said to for sticking to your philosophy of building and developing your youth. When foreign clubs do it we applaud them but when we try we have to spend on a retread who can't stay healthy. Robben and RIbery can't stay on the field any longer for a prolonged period of time. Robben may still have something left in the tank to contribute in the Dutch league but to get him here he ain't coming cheap. And there's a reason that Ribery is being linked to play in the middle east and Australia. We should be more creative with our signings. Not sitting on our hands either that's where our frustration lies. But we say hell no to any older guy coming here for one last payday.

Also must be added that the Univision announcing team is probably the worst of all the worst. 

 

As American soccer fans we've suffered through some horrible broadcasts especially in the darker ages of the game in this country, safe to say they are the worst of the worst.

Very pleasantly surprising game. Some guys are definitely claiming their place as starters on this team. 

 

Casseres has got to be in the first 11. Easier to do with a 3 man backline when we have an extra midfielder in there but I still would play him over Rzat for now in a 4-2-3-1. 

 

We have to get Kaku going more hopefully this is a step in the right direction.

 

We gave up some big chances and were bailed out by Meara on a great save and by poor Dallas finishing on a play in particular in the second half. But with a backline with Tarek and Nealis in the middle of it can't say they did a bad job at all relative to expectations. 

 

Ivan and Etienne bring some speed and the ability to take on defenders 1 vs 1 which we don't really see from Royer and Muyl. Would like to see them get more chances opposite Royer to bring more of a speed element.

Potential tarp removal for this game? 

 

3 in the back looked promising and I think it has potential with better personnel. 

 

LA's attack is almost 100% percent crosses into Zlatan. Would it be better to go with the back 4 to have Parker and Long to take care of Zlatan and have both the wide midfielders and the fullbacks close down the service from out wide? 

 

Hope Lawrence and Casseres will be good to go this game I feel we miss these two guys the most.

The foxboro house of horrors. Not the place you want this team going to in desperate need of 3 points.

Robles
Murillo-Parker-Long-Taxi
CCJ-Davis
Fernandez-Kaku-Royer
BWP

Yes, best lineup we can put out there at this point.

I wish they would break the bank and go for Robben and Ribery

Sure a few years ago. If you wanna blow a ton of money now for two guys who will miss half the games go ahead.

We're having Supporters Shield hangover a la 2016 where we had a terrible start as well. We were never gonna match last seasons regular season anyway. We can stem the tide of our slow start here. Minnesota is improved but they aren't great by any stretch. Positivity!

Play the starters. Tuesday to Saturday turnaround i not that short considering they had a week between Santos games. Start the home slate off right with 3 points against a bottom feeder.

#1340233 Trialists?

Posted by Sasa Curcic's Watch on 06 February 2019 - 02:02 PM

Reliance on young RB2, academy guys, plus the draftees have probably decreased the need for veteran scrap heap trialists I guess.
