#1349237 EPL Interest in Aaron Long

Posted by regulator on 15 July 2019 - 11:07 AM

isn't it generally agreed that they valued Casseres highly and that's why they didn't feel the need to go and get someone new? And judging from his performances I'd say he normally puts in a good shift. Very mobile (much more than Davis) but needs to clean up his passing. 

 

Between Rza/Davis/CCJ/and now Beze coming back, I think we are ok in central mid.  Now if we could just do something about our wingback depth...

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

Etienne------Kaku---------Omir

------Casseres--Bezecourt

Kemar--Long--Parker--Duncan

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

 

Need some rotation in there. I'd also expect to see Ivan at some point. Good to see Bezecourt back in the 18 last night, I'd guess he gets some time out (maybe split some time with Davis or Rza off the bench)

Don't see how Lade is above anyone at this point. Duncan had a rough outing vs ATL but I'd say he's at least at parity or above Lade. Agree with the rest though

They need rotation at those 2 CM spots. Davis in particular has looked Bradley-esque at times in 2nd halves of games. Maybe giving him a week off would go a long way

I was able to flip these for about a $4 / ticket profit. Better than breaking even I guess!

i can see murillo as a 2nd half sub for Lade.  We really need him to be 100% ready for the ATL game on Sunday.

The south ward is in rare form tonight. And by that I mean I'm pretty sure 3 different songs are being sung over each other simultaneously.

not sure how you teach speed though.  you either have it or you don't.  i'd rather roll the dice and hope that robinson develops, rather than put my eggs in the basket of the slow gloster option

Anyone else think Long looked uncharacteristically shaky on the ball last night?

his last couple of games with the USMNT have been sub-par.

Muyl is such an obvious attacker to wingback conversion that it hurts me to think we haven't done it more consistently yet


#1347555 We need better backups

Posted by regulator on 10 June 2019 - 02:03 PM

If your backup left back is only good in one specific role (LWB in a 5 at the back formation), then he probably shouldn't be your backup left back. There is absolutely no reason to reshuffle your entire gameplan just to accommodate your backup
