Could not wait until the Minny game concluded?

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

Galaxy have been playing really well so far, this will be a real good test to see how good/bad we are.

Wouldnt hate that move but would prefer dropping 10m like Portland in a 24 yr old Argentinian striker or mid

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Galaxy ... will be a real good test ...


Could be a historic butt-kicking.
I recall our 0-4 home losses in 96 & 97.
We won 5-0 once, when Diallo scored 4.

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

Coach Armas is on life support by the team of walking dead, and I doubt it will last through the next 2 games.

Im happy about the 3 points. The players needed a boost of confidence and as a fan I want them to win everything. On top of all our early season struggles if we lost at home to an expansion team it might have been a wound we couldnt heal from.

That being said we should have at least tied that game. Maybe lost. I cant remember the last time I watched a game where the woodwork was hit 3 times by the visiting team.

Apart from the first 15 minutes we looked terrible. And Im worried that if we continue to look terrible but pick up a few points here and there then Armas will retain his job. At this point Im not okay with that.

Personally I think were gonna get rocked by LA. But hey we could play the entire game defending deep and they could hit the woodwork three times.

Should be a good crowd on hand. If we some how manage a win it should do wonders for our confidence.

We simply dont have the horses to put a strong steak. I never would have guessed losing Adams would have had this much of a ripple effect.

Were a wildcard team if were lucky

Losing Adams didnt help. But he isnt the only reason or the biggest reason why we are where we are.

I think he has/had his shortcomings but losing Jesse Marsch is where all this started.

True. Other teams went ahead and used GAm/tam/dps to boot while we sat back.

Well see joe corona on saturday as an example of these types of additions. Solid mid

I just dont think Armas is any good but giving him the benefit of the doubt...Id say that had he brought the players in that he needed to play his style then maybe we wouldnt be where we are.

He didnt do that.

So...hes either no good or didnt make the right moves. Either excuse is inexcusable.

Its another totally different look but on paper this puts guys in their best roles.

 

I can't figure out what they need to do with Rzatkowski. He's not a high volume player, he just doesn't seek out the ball enough. There was a 15 minute stretch against Cincinnati where he didn't touch the ball, not good for your attacking CM. But he's also one of the only guys who can play a killer ball. Maybe let him float with CCJ as a 6 and Davis as an 8?
