That may have been the best crowd of the season. Naturally, not the result we all wanted.


Is there any team better at confirming fans' cynicism / not delivering exciting late heroics?

RED. BULL. OUT.

Got to play quicker, less time on the ball... Keep it simple, move the ball faster and take less touches to get a shot or pass off and no need to perfectly aim a shot into upper 90, pick a side, preferably the far post and let it rip, just make the keeper move his feet..

For instance Barlow's last goal was from a muffed cross and and BWP scored countless goals that keepers got a hand on but it still got past them...

Got to get guys running forward, and move the ball quicker and shoot at first chance possible...




I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Sims has got to be one of the worst shooters on the Team. What does he do in practice? Simply run!!!

argh - had our chances. 

Why so many floating balls with Hamid who is good and aggressive coming off his line. 

Royer? Royer? Royer?

 

Duncan was good with a great 80 yard run in the first half only to send it way to hard to Royer.  argh.

 

We had about 4 good chances and 1 great chance by CCJ.  

 

In form Brian White who can score off 1 chance would have been incredibly handy today.

 

D again looked very good and agressive.  

 

enjoyed Rooney getting knocked out of his cleat :-)

Can think of multiple times where we didn't even get a shot on net when we should have and could of scored. BWP did nothing with his chance, omir shot it straight out instead of on net, etc. That game ending 0-0 is a joke.

This one really hurt to watch. It was the type of goal he scores 9/10 times over the last few seasons. Yesterday he never even looked confident enough to take the shot, let alone put it in the net.

post game when the team is kicking balls into the stands BWP boots a ball up into the upper deck, it hits a TARP and bounces back into the field.

This is what I come back to when I watch BWP now.  He's not that far off physically from what he always was but his confidence is just not there at all.  Sports is a confidence-based world but it just shocks me that his confidence is barely there.  It's either that or he just doesn't care much for whatever reason.  

 

Sucks that we have an issue finishing at times this season and his 1 great strength was always finishing.

The only joke is our expectations and our hope that something will change and we become consistent and deadly right before playoffs. We've, or Jesse, has gotten all he could out of this group and best armas can do is get lucky and win 50 percent of our games while looking like shit most of the time.

Let's hope for a repeat of 08 where we got to the cup despite Osorio not because of him.

You driving to LA again?

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

I hope so, if we make it to final I'll definitely be there!

I'd love another 48 hour trip to LA. I barely survived at 20, don't think I'd be able to 11 years later. 

 

No Dane Richards to save us now.

Everything starts breaking down after 30. Just ask BWP
