Perhaps he is a square peg, but the team seemed livelier when he was on the field. And that goal in Cincy!

 

He had the same fit problem as Gulbrandsen. Good striker, bad on the wing, unfortunately behind BWP in the depth chart on a team that could not figure out how to play with two strikers.

I would guess that Barlow is actually relatively high on expected goals because he gets into pretty good shooting positions. He just rarely finishes.

 

Basically this. Americansocceranalysis.com is usually where I get my expected goals fix but they haven't updated their tables since March so don't know exactly how they compare with that stat.

 

But in similar minutes played and equal amounts of goals, Barlow has 2x a many shots as White and 3x as many shots on target. I think those stats support what the eye test is telling most of us - Barlow does enough work off the ball to create chances and impress the coaches, but just doesn't have the finishing chops for it to matter.

The players clearly care about it.

 

This was a wrong decision... although it would be pretty funny if the Worms don't get it.

 

Henry was always pretty open that the Shield was the trophy he cared most about

I don't see how Chicarito would be any better here than at LA. He needs an elite midfield and a striker partner next to him to succeed as a poacher, which is the full extent of his skillset even if is great at it. If we had that kind of roster than we'd probably still be seeing Brian White score like he did last year.

Can Egbo get a start over Duncan please.

 

Do you not like Duncan or are you just excited to see more of Egbo? I thought Duncan's done well lately.
