The season is over and this team sucks


11th in the East, 22nd in the Shield, 1.1 ppg
Only 3 teams have scored fewer than our 24 goals.
We have 2 or 3 games in hand on most other teams,
but no sign that we can win many of our remaining 13.

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

The remainder of this season should be one big audition for just about everyone on the first team. If this team doesnt get a Sasha type playmaker for next season, it is done.

As I stated before this team is as bad as the 1999 metro team or the 2009 team. As a long time fan then maybe next year we will win the cup.

I’ve been ignoring the team this year and just checking the MF recaps. Until Red Bull changes, they won’t get any of my money, time, or attention. Red Bull is doing nothing to earn any of that. I was fine subsidizing their soda advertising while they provided the money and players to win trophies, but they’ve dropped their end of the bargain, so I’ve dropped my end as well.

Tuesday night game is a weird one.

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.

They are making it difficult for our massive travelling support.

Will Shep Messing or Steve  Cangilosi l finally admit that this is a lousy team  on the broadcast?

I'm tired of hearing how great Kimala ,Fabio and Barlow have potential. The team need an overhaul from top to bottom.

What broadcaster on the planet would just slam the team they cover?

Honestly I think they've done a good job politely delivering the message that the team is lacking. Steve said over and over yesterday that draws won't cut it anymore. Shep has called out holes in the roster, like an "orchestrator" as he's put it, on almost every broadcast. I don't recall all that much overt praise for any of our strikers lately.

Not sure where all the doom and gloom is coming from.   To make the play offs, it looks like we only need as many points from the final 13 games as we got in the first 21.  If we match Nashville's record so far for the rest of the season, we should be fine.  How hard can that be?  Nashville's just playing our rejects and a bunch of old guys.

I think Shep and Steve are great.  Didn't hear them on this game.  I don't want to hear some rant.  They are positive and rooting but realistic.   


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Who really cares about making the playoffs at this point? We will be bounced immediately. I for one dont care about the playoffs streak. I want to see the team being rebuilt for future longer term success. In fact making the playoffs might be disastrous. It might convince the FO that we have the right personnel and were just experiencing a bad run of form this summer. We DO NOT have the right players! This is a poorly constructed team and we need to lose from here on out so the team is blown up. Just my opinion.

I can't imagine any rational soccer executive watching video of our performances this year and attributing the results to bad luck.
OTOH, I don't know if any of our FO have been evaluated for mental health.

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