Hopefully this game doesn't mean anything. Give anyone the game off who's banged up.

Give some players minutes who need it.

Two games a week for awhile but Carnell has rotated so heavily I would hope just about everyone is 90 minutes fresh if need be. Kinda surprising when you think about it how consistent the team has looked with so little continuity.

Long is easily more clinical than all the current strikers on the roster.

I go back and forth between White and Barlow. White is clearly more technically sound but is more limited athletically. Barlow offered more threat but that might have been a function of the match being more open when he came on, but his threat never offers actual production.

For sure.  It wasn't a pretty finish, but I don't think I'd bet on a single one of our strikers finishing a ball that high.
 


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.

Need a win here, want to avoid a play-in game obviously. Could get to 5th with two wins if NYC lose or draw at Chicago next week.

Bench the forwards.

Instead of the False 9, we have the Unproductive 9.

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

That was a beautiful, technical, athletic finish
