Indeed. Lest we forget that Tyler Adams cost us the Champions League semi against Chivas last year with a horrible mistake and later cost us at least a goal (don't remember the result tbh) with an identical gaffe in MLS play. I think we still remember him fondly.

I recall Adams and Long having a horrible gaffe in the 85th at Yankee Stadium last July that led to the only goal of the game. I belive that was actually Armas' first game at the helm.

Orlando have given us a couple of gifts, first with Collin and now with Tarek. Are they so stacked with CBs year after year, that they can afford to let these guys go for next to nothing? Their record seems to indicate otherwise.

(I know Rivas and Redding were garbage, but I view that trade as clearing SK and his salary so we could sign Kaku. So not really gonna judge that trade harshly.)

Their thought process behind giving us Collin was purely clearing a veteran with a high price tag from their payroll. That one I can understand. They were not wrong in him being on his last legs either. He was a difference maker for us in 2016, but saw a decline in 2017, and then was to the point of not even making our game day 18 for much of last year.

In the case of Tarek, I think that speaks more to them being just a poorly run organization. Hes relatively young and is obviously physically gifted. They had a clear failure in identifying his talent, utilizing his talent, and implementing a sound and structured defensive philosophy in general.

He was dreadful last night and no doubt cost us the game.  But yes, perspective is called for.  He's also put in some good shifts, even scored a goal.  He's a project.


(But again, boy was he terrible last night.)

I don't dispute that at all, he was the bum of the match. Perspective is all I was getting at.

Nealis is our 4th CB and a rookie. Just 4 days ago he had to be called on in a pinch and did an excellent job in helping us defeat the defending champs, while down a man. People have incredibly short memories.
