Man deserves more respect than he gets.

I love you Shep but the season is still very much over.

Team does not deserve a penalty or to tie but it will be funny to piss off the NYCFC fans.

Imagine if you said in 2018 that in 2021 Kyle Duncan will be the most creative attacking force on the team. That is what has happened.

They have been up a man for 15 minutes and failed to even come close to creating a chance.

It is looking pretty obvious that last game was a lot more a reflection of just how fucked up a team Miami is than of any quality in RBNY.  Nashville currently brutalizing Miami 3-0 just after half time.

Carmona kicked that ball very hard. It was impressive.

If nothing happens after this... anyone who is responsible for overseeing contracts or this court case should be fired. This includes and not limited to their general counsel office, hamlet and thewell.

I am not really sure about that.  Just because a legal strategy does not work does not mean it was not a good strategy. 




#1391057 Red Bull is garbage

The Cosmos name has basically zero value anymore. All the people who associate the Cosmos with success and vibrancy are past or nearing retirement age. In 1996, it would have been valuable but by 2025 they will be only slightly more relevant with the demographic of fans the team needs than Brookhattan.




#1390945 The Fire Gerhard Struber Thread

If I was struber, I would tell the guys to go out and have fun. Let's be real. We are not going to hold any lead. The strength is in the offense. Let the kids attack. If you go down, go down swinging.

The strength is very much not in the offense.  It is pretty clear that the strength is in the defense.  That is where the somewhat promising players in the team are (Tolkin, Gutman, Reyes, Duncan, Nealis).  The offense is a bunch of kids who have never had any real success at a level of soccer comparable to MLS and most of whom have shown there are not going to be average level MLS players any time soon.

 

Statistically, this team is performing very well defensively based on past seasons as far as goals conceded per game.  It is doing historically badly at goals scored per game. 1.3 goals against would be the fourth best season in Metro history.  1.1 goals for would be the third worst in Metro history.

Fabio is very bad at kicking the ball accurately.  This is a real problem because kicking the ball accurately is a very important part of shooting and passing. Shooting and passing are two very important skills for an attacking soccer player.

Team needs to focus on generating more long throw-ins.

Long throws are our most dangerous offensive weapon.  Taking a page out of Chicago's book.

Fabio is the worst striker at shooting that I think I've ever seen in MLS.
