#1327683 Metro - Seattle Game Thread

Posted by McSoccer on 14 June 2018 - 03:23 PM

I get being annoyed/disappointed with Muyl not passing or dribbling into the corner to kill off the game, but for the sake of team chemistry and the optics, he can't be doing that. 

Agree in principle, but we dont know what else has transpired beforehand. Maybe the team has tried to take care of... whatever the issue is, in the locker room and it hasnt gotten through to Muyl.  Maybe Royer just couldnt take it anymore.  The reality is, regardless of the time left on the clock, the right soccer play there is to pass.

To be fair though, maybe Muyl still had his fingers in his ears and couldnt hear Royer calling for the ball...

THink it might be a team thing with Muyl. Not so much just Royer. But do agree that it seemed like it was something more than just being annoyed with him over 1 thing.
After Muyl missed that wide open header with nobody within 5 yards, BWP showed so much more disgust than I've ever seen him show.

To he Fair to the other players, their annoyance may not be completely with Muyl. Muyl is what he is and he gives his all, but Marsch was the one that made him a regular starter at one point.  Last night, Jesse could have started RZA at the 10 and played Valot wide. Maybe BWP was looking at that missed header and wished it was Valot there.

However, his and Rzatkowskis antics at the end of the game are enough to see the bench for a prolonged period of time. That kind of decision making in that situation is 110% inexcusable.

I feel like Grella has been the only player in the Marsch era to consistently take the ball to the corner to kill clock.

On the way to Ohio, he was browsing MF and came across this thread:

If it was about reading negative comments, shouldnt he have covered his eyes?  Cant even get his celebrations right...

What was Muyls celebration about?

Not listening to the haters?

#1327357 Hassan Ndam

Collin is the right guy for the bench. However, when Marsch (or Armas) plans to give Parker or Long a breather, either in or around Open Cup matches, Ndam should get nod to start.

#1327270 2018 US Open Cup

Sure, I get that, and it completely makes sense in order to have a full stadium and a good atmosphere. But it clearly tilts the game one way based on nothing more than luck of the draw. That is obviously true for the earlier rounds as well but it somehow feels worse for a final, at least for me.

They could make the final two-legged.  Although that would just add to the fixture congestion.

#1327217 Will Marsch go?

Posted by McSoccer on 07 June 2018 - 04:13 AM

I'd gladly trade one of our supporters shields for an Open Cup, every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Fair enough, but that doesnt mean winning the Open Cup is a better coaching performance than winning the Shield.

#1327008 Will Marsch go?

Posted by McSoccer on 05 June 2018 - 03:41 PM

Pretty much any coach whose won either MLS Cup or the Open Cup for starters (yes I know Ben Olsen and Thomas Rongen have won them. Whatever, they are the exceptions).

If Olsen can be an exception of an Open Cup winning coach that sucks, why cant Marsch be an exception of a coach that hasnt won a tournament style competition yet is an excellent coach?

Article seems like nonsense anyway. That said, I would think Marsch is better suited than most American coaches to coach Liepzig, for obvious reasons.

Its just a shitty situation unique to MLS where the only surefire answer is not to sign international quality players.

I thought thats what they had done with Kaku and then he goes and switches National Teams!

What do you mean, where is he going? Paraguay is not in the WC.

They're playing friendlies, just like the USMNT.

Viera is as stubborn as Marsch is, they'll probably still try to build out of the back

Without Parker and Adams, they may be more successful this time than they were the last.

Maybe the USSF should not schedule Open Cup matches the same time the USMNT has friendlies?

#1326268 Leipzig poaching Adams

Posted by McSoccer on 22 May 2018 - 03:27 PM

good for us to keep him, bad for him.  if he would have moved in the summer, he would have had an offseason to acclimate to a new environment, get to know his teammates, coaches, new country, etc...and maybe push for playing time this year.  moving in January stunts all of that, and you have to figure he won't see any meaningful minutes until next year.  oh well, he's young and has his whole career ahead of him.  hoping i can get his #4 RBNY jersey signed before he heads out

It depends, Leipzig may think he needs another year and wont be ready to compete for a starting position until the 2019-20 season. If he moves in January, hell actually be half a season early.

#1326264 Veron and grammar

Posted by McSoccer on 22 May 2018 - 03:16 PM

coach won't play him consistently and the fan base is split 50/50 on whether he should

Can you edit your prior post to complete the thought?
I know that I cannot use apostrophes, but I can edit.

Not my post, but that sentence works. The he in whether he should refers to the coach that wont play him consistently.
