This
with only maybe someone for Murrillo as guy needs more defensive hustle

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

after what he did Saturday he should watch the next game from the bench.  He's already committed 2-3 errors that have led directly to goals this season off the top of my head.  That doesn't even count his CCL yellow card brain fart as an additional unnecessary error.

SKC is a good team.  I haven't felt this down about our chances in an MLS game in probably a couple years.


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.

If there's any way that Royer or Ivan can play on the right side, I'd like to see that happen because I think Ivan has looked very good when he's played this season.  I'm a fan of Omir as well, just not quite as much as what I seen from Ivan.

 

 

And I'd also like to see Casseres and Rza as the two 6's.  

 

I'd ditch that diamond midfield because it makes Royer useless unless they intend to play him up top with BWP.  Also is stupid if Davis is the 6 in that formation considering his current form.

I don't think the diamond midfield works at all with our personnel. It renders Davis mostly irrelevant, leaves the front 3 isolated, and neutralizes our wingers.

From what I've read from people who would know about these things, diamond midfield shapes require a rock solid d-mid and take a little longer for teams to learn.

Have we seen a diamond midfield succeed in MLS since Kreis used to run it at RSL?
