#1373487 Shield will not be awarded this year

Posted by JBigjake54 on Yesterday, 06:11 AM

I'm one of the Shield board members.


Thanks for taking the time to discuss the reasoning behind the decision with some ESCers on Zoom.
There is no doubt that the MLS schedule creates a flawed championship.  I can see your point, although because I value the Shield over MLS Cup, I still think it should be awarded, with an asterisk.

I love going for the 5 hole but it's like anywhere but right at him would have gone in


The high bounce made it perfect to lob the keeper.
Of course, being Barlow, it would lob the crossbar too.

Yea I don't get why all of the sudden they are emphasizing Red Bull New York.

Obvious dive by Higuiain getting a star call.


Higuain was whining about non-calls the entire game,
but Pendant put hands on him & he went down.
Why grab someone running away from goal?
Ref let a lot of physical play go.
Pendant earned a yellow earlier for another grab.
Came on as a sub & seemed gassed.

That has to be the last straw for Olsen already, right??


No! We need his special brand of incompetence to continue for many more seasons.

Assuming sarcasm

Dont

trading of players has a contractual component 


I am well aware of that.
Imagine if every employment contract included a trade clause. Your employee could simply give your right to work to an actual competitor?  Take it or leave it.
I still think that it is a crazy concept.
If you are surplus to requirements,
then work out a severance package.

We had a deal!


Virtually?

"a deal is virtually agreed."


Does that mean almost complete, or via Zoom?

Tetteh at half or before 60' and we have a deal. 


If we are interested if him as a potential starter,
why not start him in a game?
He can always be subbed off, instead of on.

"Give him one more start" is a far cry from "Give him a DP contract and a statue outside RBA"


Retire his number! 😄

After such little scoring this season (5 in 10 games),
we should be grateful for anyone who does it.
8 goals in 2 games is something to enjoy!
