Kinda there with ya on some points, but i'm not "Team BlowUp The Roster".
The roster moves going into the season were fine, but incomplete, imo. Obviously, I wanted more, just like a bunch of posters on this site. Last yr, we complained that we had all these chances home to Chivas, and that Kaku only played part of the game. This time around we pretty much had everyone except Taxi available. Lots of chances generated at home, but the finishing was very poor, just like Chivas the previous yr. Being 2-0 up, damn.
The hope was there at Legends, earlier tonite. And after tonite, I'm even more TeamOmir.
It's a shame... So many great sports stars that BWP is going to join. Lundquist, Ewing, Mattingly, it's just a shame. The argument could be made for all of them that they didn't have the horses around them, but I'd probably say BWP has had the best team around him. Ewing never got a legitimate other player even as much as I loved some of those guys on that team. Mattingly definitely not, and Hank had an pretty good team, just not great.
The chances missed in the Santos and Chivas CCL games are vintage John Starks vs the Houston Rockets! At least Starks went 2-18 in that terrible game he had!!! Or would it be better served for a Charles Smith reference?
Also, the Mattingly thing. Was my favorite player after Reggie. RBNY lacks a Reggie, aka "The Straw That Should've Been Acquired to Stir The Energy Drink". Instead, seems like we got a "Pat Kelly/Steve Sax throwing to 1st base" moment in some of the bigger non-MLS matches.
Feel free to insert NYRanger related stuff, so that we possess another angle in which we can laugh the pain away some more...
But yo, if we win 3-0 and plow through the rest of the competition in CCL and win that trophy...they can make a statue of the entire XI and all the subs used over the 2 legged final. that would be the shit.
