#1205476 R.I.P. 80% of songs

I'm glad we won so we could complain about this instead of wondering whether to use matches or a lighter to burn Mike Petke in effigy.


#1201956 But... I thought the curse was done?

After winning their first trophy in franchise history last year, the defending Supporters' Shield winners look to yet again exorcise the demons of Caricola's curse.

Where are you seeing Armando make a mistake on the second goal?  I don't think anybody in the backline was at fault for that one, the play happened because Dax and Alexander were way out of position in the far corner of the field and nobody moved to cover their space.

Alexander's weak cross was cleared and you can see that both Sam and Steele had moved into the box, leaving nobody in a position to defend a counter.

Look at all that space, and not a single midfielder in sight!  Vancouver played an excellent counter but its inexcusable that our midfielders couldn't even make it back into our own half by the time the shot was taken.


I've said it before, but Dax needs to plant himself in front of the center backs. Nobody else is going to track back. It's not pretty, but he needs to just hang back there and destroy.

By the power of Annie, please allow the "only one ginger per lineup" curse to be lifted.

#1201442 Away goals rule

MLS changes playoff tiebreaker, adopting away goals rule in two-game series "consistent with CONCACAF and FIFA practice."

What about the Firkin in Ewing? They've got the Nats Supporters club banner flying.

I'm not looking for solutions, just to complain.




#1201044 Moreno to Tijuana

Posted by Gene Wolters on 05 March 2014 - 10:05 AM

From reports Waxman isn't Moreno's agent.

He's not, but he "assisted" with the deal. Obviously nobody knows how much he did or how responsible he was for the move.
