Yeah, I was at work during this one so didn't see a thing. 

 

If Redding looked that bad, let him start every game in USL this year.


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.

didn't get to watch this one, did anyone look good?  Mines seemed to have a decent early chance that he made with a good run/touch (based on twitter).  not sure what else happened.

 

I only got the first half. 


But I think Mines was our best player.  Has some really good qualities. Good athleticism and speed, skilled with the ball.  Works hard too.

 

That Duncan kid at right back has something to work with.  Built the right way, aggressive for our system, has skill too.

 

Redding was the bad one.  Expected more speed from him but he's really not great there. Decent quickness but he doesn't anticipate well so he looks even slower.  I've always thought what makes a CB good is the ability to anticipate attacking plays.  The good ones can all do it.  But, for a CB he's extremely young so who knows.  I wouldn't expect much from him when it comes to the first team.  Have no problem with giving him a full season with RB2 so he gets regular minutes.  Maybe he can figure out how to improve.

 

NDam looks stronger this year.  May just be filling out because he's becoming more of a man.  He has tools so curious to watch more of him.
