4th obviously and I think we get to 3rd

All rounds lead to Philly. The other main concern is cbus playing well and cucho changing the game. Mtl is no slouch

We need to maintain current players and get Manoel integrated Ngoma health klimala Plato g slightly better Luq healtly and back to fit

Phily just won 6:0 for the second game in a row, and had 7:0 and 6:0 wins previously. I mean...

We bitch about spending (and it should be better) but our payroll is basically on par with theirs. They play a very similar style and their Sporting Director, Ernst Tanner, is a Red Bull Salzburg alumni. It's proof of two things.

 

1. This system and philosophy can work but it takes time.

2. A lot of this team was built 2-4 seasons ago. Wagner, Glesnes, Elliott, Martinez, and Mbaizo are some. And then a lot of recent acquisitons were paid for and then some because of Aaronson, Przybylko, and Mckenzie the biggest. Point being that Hamlett absolutely fucked us and we're still playing catchup.

They have continuity, the best academy in the league, and use their allocation money very wisely.

Agree
No of which we currently do
Weak continuity good academy good use of allocation Morgan Amaya etc
Hopefully Jochen sees this and it is his role over next 5-7 to do so

What place do we finish ?
Whats key for the next 5 weeks?

Philly scored 6, incl. 2 PKs and a rebound.
Up a man for an hour.

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

And yet Hamlett is still the dude in charge.

We need our conference rivals to eat each other up.
Smurfs @ ORL tonight. Goalless draw best result.
One point puts Smurfs on 46, only 2 ahead of us.
One point leaves ORL 7 behind us on 37.

Miazga & Ettienne scored in Cbus-Cincy draw,
leaving the teams on either side of the 7-8 line.

I think we end up 4th, maybe 5th if we really slow down down the stretch.

Would be basically right in line with my pre-season expectations: improved over last year, will probably comfortably make the playoffs, no real chance of competing for the shield or MLS Cup with the roster we have.

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.

NYCFC blew it! Fifth minute of stoppage time. Horrible marking on that final corner for Orlando. A draw would have kept Orlando nine points behind us. Now its 7. If we beat NYCFC at YS in a few weeks I think we will finish ahead of them. Taty and Deila leaving has killed them.

I would just really just like a home game, really burnt out on traveling for knockout games after this year's open cup.
