i get why he started Muyl for the purpose of weathering the storm and being secure to begin the game. But once the 60th minute comes and we are getting a grip in the game, not making the sub is playing scared. Not enough technique on pitch to score a goal not generated by the press and NYCFC was a lot smarter in not forcing themselves to play out of the back.
Our season will come down to either Royer getting his s**t together or finding someone else who can
Muyl = weather the storm
Etienne = bring the storm, muddafuckas!
This team is superior to NYC, take it to them every time. Especially without Villa.
I was never fully sold on Royer being an adequate replacement to Sam, and still am not. He can score sometimes, and help posses, but the team just needs much more out of that slot if the other side is always gonna be a homegrown (pero what happened to Mines time?). Kaku out wide, with a bigger stronger TAM / DP kind of player in the CAM spot = nutmeg city and a cup run. KEVIN. PRINCE. BOATENG. Or similar.
Even excellent attacking duos can be shut down, especially on a postage stamp pitch. A trio of excellent attackers will stay scoring. See: ATL.
