We should invest in Titanium achilles for Thierry Henry and make him DP3.




#1330934 Watching Etienne wiff chance after chance

Posted by SoapyDish on 31 July 2018 - 06:23 PM

BWP had 2 goals in 408 minutes in his first season here. A goal every 204 minutes isn't good for a forward, but that was a pretty small sample.

Etienne has 15 goals in 5,965 professional minutes. That's one every 397 minutes.

If Etienne was twice as good as he has been throughout his career, he'd be as good as BWP was at his freshly-arrived worst.

But BWP came in as a actual striker who was playing in England professionally for the last decade. imo that's an unfair comparison

Wonder how rotation will play into this game. Two of Royer, Rza, Etienne and Muyl will be starting. uhhhhhh

 

BWP

Royer / Kaku / Adams

Rza / Davis

Taxi / Long / Parker / Murillo

Robles

 

edit: also maybe Lade/Escobar/Kutler get a chunk of time?

About that Etienne chance, I was at the game and probably had the perfect view of that shot he missed, and that was a solid attempt at a really difficult shot. Sure, he could have done better, maybe used his left foot there, but to think that we should ship him down to RB2 while Muyl is getting lots of minutes is ludicrous.




#1329371 Valot out for year with ACL tear

Posted by SoapyDish on 09 July 2018 - 03:51 PM

I think Eitenne has the attitude and work ethic to get more minutes now, but the biggest question is if he can start converting his chances.

 

Don't think i'm ready for another round of starting Muyl, let's hope Etienne can take this opportunity and/or this Ivan guy signs and winds up being good.

 

edit: or if our Austria overlords would allow... DP3.

Look at our record against teams underneath us in the standings. 

 

Losses to Chicago New England Orlando Salt Lake. Draws to Philadelphia Columbus. 

Happens a lot in soccer, from top to bottom. Good teams put a lot of stock into beating other good teams and usually find it boring to play shitty ones, and of course wind up dropping points to said shitty teams as a result. Now obviously, these guys are professionals and should be rolling over teams like Philly, but it is understandable to an extent.

Damn I remember when everyone thought BWP was just extra incentive to for SWP to come, how times change.




#1326735 Ignacio Pussetto is expensive

Posted by SoapyDish on 29 May 2018 - 07:50 PM

^ Also why it's gonna suck if they get knocked out of open cup while missing several starters.

What if Pussetto is an upgrade on Royer? Would keep the other mid spot open for developing players. Kaku Pussetto and Etienne running at a backline would make for a feast for BWP.

Certainly gives Marsch a good problem to have. But when time comes to MLS Cup time you're gonna want Royer starting.

All in favor of re-naming the South Ward to "The VAR Stand"?

32 and can't get in at QPR? Hmmm I'll pass on his wages.

Would be a good option on the wing if he took anywhere from $80k-$110k. Obviously being a "big name" he'll want more money, but the link he'll have with BWP and Sam would be very nice. Throw in a good CAM and some CB's...

 

Well I can dream.
