Was on a family vacation this week but did manage to sneak some time and watch the game.  Just a killer loss.  More of the same.  A lot on Marsch for this one specifically.  I've said it a bunch that Murillo is not a natural defender and should basically never be in our back 3.  He's not good enough defensively.  In this formation, I only like him at the RWB spot.

 

THe Zizzo sub for Taxi was tragic.  Taxi is playing well again and you could even see Taxi look back when he realized he was being subbed off and throw his hands up a bit, like he was confused on why.

 

Zizzo should never play at any position in any meaningful game. 

 

No fan of Muyl but he did battle this game.

 

Adams was fantastic. 

 

There are some flaws with this team... Long isn't dominant enough and we've been crushed by Collin's injuries this year.   We offer NOTHING on set pieces anymore.  We have no size, and when guys do get to balls, they simply don't finish.  Guys win pretty clean headers, but they do absolutely nothing with them.  Marsch also has to make a change philosophically.  We need more offensive talent on the field.   Veron has proved he deserves minutes, regardless of position.  Especially because certain guys (Muyl) play a lot of minutes and don't produce enough goals.  Hell, I'd even take Keita on the field.  

 

Killer loss, a lot on Marsch specifically but I don't think this group even gets to the final with many other coaches either.

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

I did not even move, or celebrate when that went in. I knew that false hope was coming. I stood in front of the TV at Legends, drink in hand, arms crossed, while my friends grabbed me, I knew nothing was going to come out of it. I would have rather not scored.

Lol me too. I KNEW we would score 1 goal and only 1 goal. It was the Columbus playoff game all over again.

Wouldn't have been complete without that final free kick sailing over the crossbar.

Shades of Roy Miller, but not as bad. Still can't believe he was the one to take that free kick with Henry standing right next to him. Never scored a goal for us, but takes the ultimate shot of the season????
This post is dedicated to all the slow defenders of the world. Godspeed! my brothers

Someone even asked Henry about it, and he said he let Roy take it cause the keeper wouldn't expect it.

 

There is a good reason why nobody expects Roy Miller to take a free kick....

Yeah I'm sure. I mean Henry was still not aclimated with his players or the league yet. He came as a sub becuase he was injured before. Go figure.
