I just excited to see how much vitriol my wife directs at Sacha. She's never disliked one our own more than him.  :D

Bring on a garbage sub at the end of the game to push their GK into the net and see if we can get away with it.


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.

How long has she been a fan?

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

I'd be fine with Taxi Rza and Royer either on the bench or not in the 18 for this one. Since Rza was subbed out midgame, i'd have him sit this one out, just in case.

I went to the Chicago game when we first won the shield. Really hope I'm a shield good-luck charm cause I'm going this Sunday.


Wasn't the first Shield win at RBA?

A possible scenario:

 

Atlanta loses by one goal, RBNY ties Orlando.  RBNY and ATL are tied on points.  First tiebreaker is wins, they are still tied with 21.  Second tiebreaker is goal difference, they are still tied with +28.  Third tiebreaker is goals for, ATL right now has what looks like an insurmountable lead, 69 to 61.

 

Obviously, a RBNY win and an ATL tie or loss makes it simple.  But RBNY can still take the Shield with a tie, as long as ATL loses by 2 or more.

of course any number of dropped points could theoretically be the reason for us missing the shield. however, there's a few that jump out at me:

 

#1: draw @ NYCFC - we were up a man most of the game, and then up 2 men by the end of the game. if i recall they were actually just as likely to go up by a goal towards the end than we were of scoring a game winner.  inexcusable. need to be able to put games like this away

 

#2: loss vs Columbus - the team's effort in the 1st half was pathetic. we have the best record in the league, but it's unreasonable to expect 100% perfection every home game. However, the effort exerted in the 1st half was terrible.

 

#3: loss @ montreal - i could see us losing away against an ok team.  but we laid an egg and got blown out, which came back to bite us now in the Goal Differential.  If we lose 1-0 or 2-0, then maybe a draw in the final game is enough to see us to the shield

 

ones i don't rate as highly

-  the away loss @ orlando. we were in the middle of CCL and fielded a B squad on the road. 

- the home loss vs Chicago. Schweini played a solid game and they had a wondergoal.  Again, unreasonable to expect 100% home record (we already have the best home record in the league)

We had one of the best seasons in league history. Every team drops points.

 

If Armas doesn't lose at NYC, maybe he doesn't start to use subs earlier and we don't beat KC the following week. Etc, etc, etc.
