Don't disagree with the team commitment premise, but "we win the cup easy" there makes me wince preemptively.

I'm not saying we're going to win the cup this year.  We won't.  The defense/team isn't going to play like that for the entire cup run.

 

Because Metro.

His contract expires in like 3 months. Even by the most cynical standards, he has every reason to care. Aren't you the same dude who talked shit to Ali Curtis in front of his kid? 

Nope, that was me. Years later, I only partially regret it.


METRO T-SHIRTS!

for the guy who called me out for calling out Curtis in front of his kid. Yes, I publicly apologized for that comment at a town hall event while looking into Curtis' eyes. It was wrong of me to do that in front of his kids.


You & Bill are not the only two who did this.
Just not in front of his kid.
AFAIK, he is not missed.

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

Tim Parker single-handedly fixed the central defensive issues that have plagued this team ever since Miazga left.  He had his worst game of the season yesterday on the heels of a couple bad games.  But we have the best defense in the league, do you really think we have that with Collin or Escobar?

i agree with you 100%!
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Who started this thread Roy Miller?!?!

Tim Parker fixed this defense... It was clearly obvious that he was the best defender in the beginning of the season for NYRB and possibly the whole league. It has rubbed of on Aaron Long and Long has been better in the pasts months.. Taxi has always been Taxi and Murillo has been better than last year but without Parker New York would have losts leads that turned into ties and ties that turned into losses just like last season

The stat posted in the other thread about how we've lost only 1 game all season with our usual back 4 really shows how solid a unit this group is.  And Parker has a LOT to do with that.

Thats an unbelievable stat and I wouldnt be surprised to see it mentioned in the media sometime during the playoffs.

Parker is the piece this team has been missing for years. We have the best defense in team history. The best defense in the league. The only way we dont win MLS cup this year is if we get yet another visit from that very special Metro magic we seem to always save for the knockout tourneys.

Or, we play as poorly as we did today.
Especially, against better opposition.

I have greater faith in the most bizarre thing happening like half the team coming down with the flu than playing like that during the playoffs.

Were gonna lose. No question. But its going to be in the most creative and head scratching way possible.
