Id also throw the Parker clearance play in that category of nervy moments, but Im in total agreement with you. We limited their high danger chances and the defense made smart and skillful plays to extinguish the fires when they did occur. Even in the most dominant of performances, its very difficult to escape a game without allowing 1 or 2 dangerous opportunities. The backline put in a very good performance tonight and hopefully 2 positive trends could be developing: Long starting to look like 2018 Long and Duncan starting to look like a serviceable RB.
i dont think that's completely fair. You compare the expected goals from today, to most of the other games we played this season and today blew it out of the water. Philly didn't get too many good looks today besides the first half breakaway save Robles made and the Kemar block in second half. Watching the game I thought we were noticeably better on defense. They had an expected goal of under .7 in the game.
We are not in "Supporters Shield" mode, but its better than the garbage we saw recently
