8 minutes in and he hasn't scored yet, send him back. 

 

But he played an honest to god through ball! Haven't seen one of those yet this year.

 

Bright start from  Moreno as well, kid is fearless.

Good ball by Kaku over the top setting Ben Mines free for a chance on goal.  Keeper made a solid save

Kaku looks very good so far.  He is very poised and calm on the ball in a way that Sacha was.  He slows the game down and gives himself time to pick apart the defense.

First half thoughts:

- Both wingbacks will probably never play in MLS, not good enough

- Scarlett is doing alright, I don't like how quickly he seems to go to ground though. unsure what his ceiling is
- At times forgot Politz was playing which i guess is okay for a defender but not overly impressed

- Kaku did what he was supposed to do: which is look better than everyone else on the field.  Technique very good, comfortable having game flow through him

- Amando Moreno is a first team player, whether he plays some with the USL or not.  By the end of the season he could give Etienne and Muyl a run for their money if he continues to improves.  His pressing isn't as good as Muyl, but still good, but he adds the ability to take on people 1 v 1 that Muyl can't do yet.  While I think he is faster than Etienne.  I am not sure sometimes if Derrick is quick enough to play wide.

- Mines' off the ball movement is really good.  To the point that maybe after a year of growing into his body, I would consider having him focus on playing as CF.  Every game I have watched from him he creates at least one breakaway due to his movement.  Of the RB2 guys him and Moreno look the best

- White played his worst game that I have seen him play.  Did not do a good job getting himself involved

Kaku very good at finding guys in space with lifted passes.

That is a ridiculous call on the penalty and a ridiculous call on the red card.  Bozakos is one of the worst referees in this country.

Moreno to White to make it 2-1.

 

Also yeah, that red was wack unless he spat or said something way beyond the pale.


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.

Bum of the match: Simian, or whatever that agent's name was. The Notorious ARG's fitness was lagging. Weeks of training lost! Angry futile fist shake!
