Im absolutely certain he would be a defensive upgrade over Murillo.

Murillo is literally good to give up 2-3 big chances per game. Its infuriating.

I doubt Muyl can play as a pure RB, so it needs to be a back 5, and he's not better than Murillo as either a RB or RWB.

It's a good idea though.


I hear ya.....but if Chris Albright could do it and play for the National Team....so can he.

Smd if Sal Zizzo could do it.......oh wait...

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

I'm not gonna pile on Armas, though the capitulations in the past two games have been disturbing.  He's been operating with a patchwork defense.  Lade and Nealis are not good enough for this level.  We'd been on fire before the past two games, and everyone was applauding CA for his in-game subs and management.  Cut the guy some slack.  The problem is our defensive depth (though any club would be tested if it lost 3 of 4 starting defenders).

 

We are a fickle bunch around here.  (And I say this as someone who still is not 100% sold on Armas.)

Muyl buries the fucking PK (or someone else with some fucking balls) and we aren't talking about failure. but the not sacking the fuck up in a crucial moment is why we are here. 

 

full stop.

It was saved, not missed. Of course, we do not know why the keeper guessed to his left. Perhaps Alex tipped it.

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

There were many moments like that throughout the game, putting it all on Muyl and his penalty miss is a bit harsh. Especially given he created the penalty (and the red card later on).

It was knee-height, which makes it much easier for the keeper.  A well hit shot beats the keeper even if they guess correctly.

It drives me crazy that BWP's penalty taking ability vanished into thin air during one single game against Vancouver, because before that he hit exactly that type of penalty. Always super hard and low to the bottom corner so it was unreachable even if the keeper leaned the right way.

It is unbelievable how he seemingly hit that mental block overnight and has still not taken them several years later

It's irrational now, but he was straight garbage to start the season.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

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.

I feel like we end up having to depend on our 3rd and 4th CB's every. single. season. Do we really have worse luck with this than other teams or does the stats show this is normal for everyone?
