#1372461 Are we a "massive club"?

Do we really have such a collective inferiority complex that we have a multi-page thread discussing some throw away remarks by a youtuber from Barnsley?

How was that a straight red? Didn't look that nasty to me.

DOGSO apparently

I just realized we are undefeated when we score this year. 5W-2D-0L.

This team has a pretty bad record of young players regressing after a promising rookie season. Trend goes back all the way to Lade--even Rodrigo Faria if you want to go way back.

It's almost like we could have used BWP this year. Smh

Canada wouldn't allow it

Why not? The NHL is playing there.




#1366470 Was the return of MLS a good experience?

Posted by 999duo on 09 July 2020 - 12:59 PM

I watched, but was not overly invested in the first two games. But, that's not too dissimilar from my usual level of investment in regular season MLS games not involving metro. I'll be better able to answer the question after we play on Saturday. I wasn't bothered by the advertising or adidas logo. MLS absolutely should be trying to maximize ad revenue during the tournament. I think the quality will gradually increase during the 2nd and 3rd round of games and fan interest/investment will increase when teams start playing elimination games. A perfectly fine start.

 

The only wtf moment was, as already mentioned, the 4 minute wait for the stretcher. Reminded me of an open cup game we played against Reading at RBA, when the Reading trainer--who looked like a HS girl--walked as slowly as humanly possible to the other side of the field to treat a player and then refused to give one of our guys a water bottle. She got booed horribly much to absolute bewilderment of the Reading fans who were apparently expecting little league etiquette from the fans.

The league's support for BLM does ring a little hollow when they allow CFG to own a team . . .

My prediction is that Nashville also drops, one of the remaining Group A teams replaces Dallas and tournament goes ahead with 24 teams in 6 groups of 4.

I honestly have no idea what to expect from the team at this point. Fingers crossed. I just legitimately don't know how good or bad we are.

It has been 201 days since the Smurfs last scored a goal. That has to be close to the longest chronological drought in MLS history. They were the only team to fail to score in the two games played this season.

I would take a shot at Alexander Katai. Looks like Chicago is in full rebuild despite atrocious (and that really doesnt do it justice) rebrand.
