I simply refuse to believe that Ante Razov scored 114 goals. 


I do not know where the other 108 came from:

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

I know we don't retire numbers in soccer but 99 should be off limits from now on. Man is a legend.

I don't think people can say any more with a straight face that Henry or any other player has been better for the club than BWP.

Honestly the only other one you could make the case for is Robles, but he and BWP basically go hand in hand with each other.

Build a statue with BWP and Robles holding hands.

Done.

The aggregate victory over Tijuana raised BWP's stock significantly.

The team is in the final four... Depending how the rest of this competition goes, the debate could finally be over.

All he does is score goals.... and press for key turnovers, and serve up magnificent assists, and deliver Hall of Fame-worthy goal celebrations...

Shades of Henry in last night’s performance.

 

Four and a half years ago, Titi delivered this cross (19:50) to put us up 5-2 against Chicago for our first-ever trophy.

 

Last night, BWP delivered this cross (:45) to put us up 5-1 on aggregate against Tijuana and put us into the CCL semi-finals.

This debate would be moot if BWP had scored in a couple of more playoff games. That said, its hard to argue against him, especially after the last few matches.

BWP is the GOAT.

Just because we haven't won the cup, it's easy to point at BWP, but are we really expecting him to do better than 9 goals in 15 playoff games?  That's practically the exact same strike rate that he's had in league play.  I get why the "disappears in the playoffs" narrative exists, but the numbers really don't show it.

 

League: 87 goals in 140 games = 0.62 G/app

Playoffs: 9 goals in 15 games = 0.6 G/app


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

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.
