I really don't like Reyes.  He's a ticking time bomb.  The type of defender that's a red card with legs.  

There are only so many defenders capable of making Sean Nealis look competent.

It seems like having a really good defense is the Struber trademark. Not much else. Stats don't lie either, 1st in Goals Against in '21 and ~upper 1/3 last yr. Upper 1/3 this yr. 

He plays like he is envious of others and the team is outgunned. In previous years I would tend to agree but there is enough talent to not be forced into playing for 1-0 wins and 1-1 draws.

Getting results is great in a vacuum but the home form is going to have to be really good to make playing for draws on the road acceptable.

Yeah it was terrible. Barlow actually did better with that "style."

Well yeah, Vanzeir is only going to be successful in this style with a target striker to play off of. Without Burke our only option is Barlow, although Manoel had a few decent moments at hold up play throughout the match not nearly enough though.

I think Vanzeir has to start going forward.  He did almost nothing in the ~20 minutes he got this game.  He needs more time with the starters.

They just punt the ball upfield all 2nd half. You could have Jesus himself up there and it would not matter. There isnt an attempt to connect passes and bring him into play.

Opposite, the thought of getting a result on 23% possession should give any global Red Bull coach a massive hard-on

There is no threat of relegation and Charlotte are terrible. 6 points from 15 isnt the standard we should be aiming for unless we are just content with mediocrity which it seems like we are.

Only 1 L, but only 1 W.
