Because the switch off is mostly the offensive players/wingbacks while Long, Nealis, and Reyes are really good with the initial ball into the six?

I hate the handball rule, but rightly waved off.

Two years ago, thats considered ball to hand and the goal would have stood

RBL 6 BL seasons: 67, 53, 66, 66, 65, 58.


Stop trying to map non salcap metrics onto a salcap league.

Unless you are stating that parity sucks, but then make this an regular season MLS issue and not a specifically Red Bull one.

By MLS standards, this is a good, not great season that will in all probability have the bitter aftertaste of another playoff flop.
By MLS standards, we have had very few out and out bad seasons, some mediocre seasons (including the last three) and quite a few good to excellent seasons

and as Metrofanatic pointed out, many very very not so good totally terrible playoffs.

Interesting to look at stats
I dont think we were terrible with the 55 percent possession we had not good but not terrible
Xg nyrb 1.2 Philly 0.8
8 rb shots with 4! Blocked 3sog 0 goal
Phill 3 sog 2 goal

They are lethal on counter and strikers who can finish

If we see them again we will be a little different with CCJ Duncan and full Reyes
Also maybe Luq can get slightly into form


Same thing happened in LA.  Decent enough performance undone by poor finishing and defensive mistakes
Im not wondering if Luq is running out of gas - he basically has not had a break since last August

I will say that Montreal has finally started to possess the ball and stroke it around the Red Bull half the past five/ten minutes

Can't imagine how awful bus ride back home is.  But at least they didn't lose.


Having trudged back after many dispiriting defeats, a 0-0 isnt that awful, even against a crap team

Well as long as there was no No. 2 that is
