Meara was the obvious standout. Rafa, Henry, and Dax were decent, Lindpere and Cooper were awful although Lindpere picked it up for the last 10 min or so when he moved centrally.

"The plus side of watching this team for so long is that nothing remotely surprises me anymore. Henry could have taken his shorts off and cocksmacked someone to earn a red, and all I would have said is "That's so Metro." - Regulator

"In between soccer games this weekend, I played 36 holes of golf with my dad. Playing golf, I realized, is a bit like watching the Red Bulls play. Both can have the tendency to feel like self-inflicted torture. You wonder why you do it at all. But when it’s over, you can’t wait to do it again. To New England we go, then." - Andrew Keh

PALSSON > TEEMU

IRRATIONALITY REIGNS


I am sure Palsson will get some good minutes this year but he will have to play really well when he is given the chance. Backe ranks pedigree over performance.

without a 10, don't expect anything to change. without anyone in the middle to distribute/ hold possession, your looking at 2011 all over again.

Pretty much. Now with cooper here we need that #10 that much more.

Was nobody else impressed with Dax? I thought he looked good and definitely could be a 10 if he gets the ball at midfield instead of our 18. Dude was a terror out there.

I've always liked Dax since he got here and not because of his witty twitter-isms.

I like the bull dog mentality where he just runs around and tries to get the ball back. As of right now not a bad option to have off the bench

Unless something changes, we will sorely miss Timmy's distribution. But for the first time I can remember, with Keel, KC and Holgersson, we at least looked like a team that could be effective on corners. For now, I am rating Keel ahead of the big Swede.

And if we actually get a decent starting keeper out of a second round draft pick (still a big "if," of course).... credit where credits due.

I was, simply because he provides something that none of our other central midfielders do - mobility. Tainio and Rafa are both good at receiving the ball and distributing quickly, but Dax is the only one that actually looks to bring the ball forward on the ground. Palsson had a few decent bursts forward on Wednesday as well.

Some people are like slinkeys. They are not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
