I genuinely feel bad voting for any of those 3.

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 BWP scores a couple more before the final vote I think he can steal it.

It's really stupid reason and not his fault but Taxi since he's away with the NT.

 

 

I can't see BWP not winning this.

FINAL TIME!

Will Robles become the first 3-time winner in MF Survivor history, or will BWP win his first?

I had to vote for Lawrence, though it's a great year for him, he;s not with the team.

 

This round, Robles.

 

Love the guy, but I can't vote against Brandon.

 

also love that our three shouldabeen all stars are the three finalists.


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Congrats, Luis! Well deserved!

No offense to BWP ...

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

Congrats Luis!

However, what does this say about our defense for the past few years?

Lol to BWP getting voted out in week 4 of his 24 goal season, and week 5 of his 27 goal season

He was having pretty pathetic droughts at the time, perfectly understandable.

Pathetic droughts or a sign of impatient and unrealistic expectations?

There were definitely periods where he couldn't score his way out of a paper bag. Not surprised he hasn't set the MF Survivor competition alight as he can be very streaky, in both good and bad ways.

Those periods usually coincide with the whole team sucking big time and BWP not receiving service, but yes strikers are streaky animals

Sometimes I think the entire Red Bull existence has been some 19 year old kids football manager save file he only plays when he comes home drunk. - 'Mibabalou'

I'm not talking about games where he had no service, which is something he obviously has no control over. At the beginning of last season he had a series of games where he missed a number of sitters as well as a penalty, and was completely sapped of confidence. Surely I'm not the only person who remembers that?

Clearly he came back very strongly, but expecting your best striker to be converting chances in the box and from the penalty spot is hardly unrealistic expectations.
