Wasn't able to watch.  Heard he killed it.


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.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Solid against a good Peru side. To the surprise of no one here.

It's cool and all, but you couldn't have started Long against Colombia, instead of when his team has a season-deciding game this weekend?


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Could go the other way. Confidence gained from first cap and playing a flawless 90 vs. Peru could improve his play for us.

Would be nice to have the chance to be upset about this next week.

The whole back line should share that award.

Long ... MLS defender of the year.


https://www.mlssocce...nder-year-award
Dominated the player vote. Large margin by media.
First in franchise history.
Congrats!

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

Happy he got it in that it should help a little in the renegotiation with Parker.  Then again, will hurt in the negotiation with Long.

 

Worth saying I don't necessarily think he's our best.  Taxi is purely the best, and then I prefer Parker over Long.  Long is very good though and I hope we can keep all 3 of them.
