So if Kaku is unavailable/not starting and then the CM trio is Rza Casseres and Davis, who's the next CM up? Beze? 

Why is Kaku unavailable?

I think he was speaking more in a hypothetical sense. Kaku is available.

- Have to think BWP will get the start right? I know we are being cautious with him but its been 3 games to ease in now.

 

- Parker returning would be nice, but Tarek can hold his own at CB if necessary.

 

- As long our backline has Taxi, Long, and nobody named Connor, I am confident going into this match.

 

 

I would go...

 

----------------BWP

--------Muyl - Kaku - Royer

------------Davis - CCJ

Taxi - Tarek/Parker - Long - Murrilo

---------------Robles

Psychological DL.

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

Did any video ever come out capturing what happened? I find it very hard to believe in this day and age that nobody caught it.

nah Kaku plays.

BWP I think Yes for full game. 

 

Interesting point by Bobby Warshaw in letting White get 60 every game and then let BWP come on against tired D.  

Whites been getting it done and lets BWP slowly ramp back up.  

 

BWP loves playing NYC though.

maybe.

 

but yeah, heard the Warshaw thing where BWP becomes Mariano Rivera and closes games out with a brace and shushing the opponents. that'd be nice. but BWP'd have to say yes to it. i do like Brian White's game, it's not perfect, but can score with either foot, brave with the headers (that SKC goal), and just gets it done, not bad for a non-HG that came up through the U23 squad.

I don't think the BWP thing should be permanent (unless it works really well) but could be over the summer or at least July with the heavy schedule.

ideally, this would've been solved had Abang's career not take a sharp downturn.

He is not killing it in China?

Downturn is probably more of a description for his off the field antics. He seems to be doing really well in the Chinese second division whatever people want to make of that.


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 you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

The positive of the situation is for basically the last 4 seasons, ever since Henry left, weve had one striker and zero reliable backupsAbang included (4g in 25 league games). We were extremely lucky BWP stayed healthy. At least the one season he got injured weve had a reliable backup in White and a young player who has demonstrated an ability to contribute productively in Barlow. Were three deep at striker right now which is two more than anytime in the recent past. Ideally BWP wouldve been healthy all season, but it could have been worst.
