Too bad he only captured 22 secs of the video. The singing was getting better and better with each repetition.

Tonight Steve said that YS is 110 x 70.
I have read that Vermes said it is 108 x 68.
Steve also said that RBA is 115 x 74.
I estimate that RBA currently is also 110 x 70,
originally was 120 x 75.

I wish they brought it back to the original size. I understand for Struber's Olympic sprinters smaller is better, but like where there is more space to create, makes for overall better experience. Yesterday's game for instance was awful to watch from that perspective. Some blend of ping pong and soccer.

2.04 PPG from here on out to have a good shot.


Even with the win @ YS, we are still 11th.
We have to jump 4 teams in 9 games to finish 7th.

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

Win at home, tie on the road (or visa versa vs. Boy City) and hope no one ahead of us does better than that.   Piece of cake.

Watching the video, it's a joy to see how the goal developed over 25 seconds, involving 5/6 players:
Coronel fields a long cross, rolls it to Tolkien.
Tolkien advances to midfield, lobs it forward to Omir,
who runs to the end line, cuts back & passes to Davis.
Sean spins to his right, floats it up to Duncan.
Kyle retreats slightly, then runs to the endline before
nutmegging the defender & rolling it back to Omir,
who had drifted to the penalty spot, uncovered by
any of the six blue shirts in the penalty box.
Omir ran forward & ripped it past Sean from the 6!
Perhaps credit could also be given to Klimala,
who stayed onside & drew both central Ds to him.
IMO, Duncan was the most impressive in the buildup,
beginning with his overlap to an open right side, then
controlling the pass perfectly, drawing the D to him,
running to the endline & threading a perfect pass.

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

Right call on all 3. Castellanous couldve easily been red carded on that . Not good live live but worse on replay
