White let his hair brush beneath a ball already heading into the goal

The ball was heading straight to a defender, who would easily have cleared it off the line.  Never a goal, until White put just enough on it to have it go over the head of the defender.

Etienne and casseres should start.

They both did.  Etienne was ineffective and eventually subbed off.

Fernandez and muyl should be our first subs for our wingers

Both started.  Muyl ineffective and subbed off.
Now what?

imagine ... if it were the opposite situation and it was Parkhurst pushing BWP off balance.

Would never get called.

The format is pretty awful. MLS sides should be joining when the USL Championship clubs come in to give lower division clubs a chance. That said, no way MLS owners would want that to happen.

With 21 US clubs at this point, there should be a play-in round of 10 MLS clubs, to generate 16 MLS vs. 16 lower level clubs.

If you are a fan of this club, how are you not a gameday binge drinker?

#1345496 Attendance again

Posted by JBigjake54 on 05 May 2019 - 08:43 AM

Largest crowd of the season vs. LA.
Still, thousands of seats tarped over.
Far too many empty seats in the occupied sections.

What did the org do to keep the fans that watched red bull and Barcelona play?

Signed Rafa Marquez.  How could you forget?

What type of marketing are you looking for?  Blimps? 

Yes!  Blimps would be awesome!  
Of course, Newark Airport might object ...

I used to get tickets directly from the website ...
fees added on by Ticketmaster are utterly ridiculous ...
totaling near the face value of the actual event tickets ...
I wish they would go back to selling tickets themselves  

Why do venues deal with Ticketmaster?  
I suppose that they can reduce sales staff.
Those savings, however, are self-defeating,
if the actual price to fans doubles.
