Anyone have an explanation for why they looked like a different team? 

 

I second TK_RBNY on the ability to actually move the ball on the ground through the midfield. It made the attack far less one-dimensional and unsettled Miami a whole lot more than hopeful long balls.

 

The elephant in the room here though is that Miami played about as bad as I've seen an MLS team play in a long time. They straight up rolled over from the opening whistle. So while I'm confident we played better, I'm not sure I'm expecting any 4-0 wins against NYCFC who are a much better team.

Struber agrees about the balls on the ground:

IMO they are young and will be inconsistent because of it.

I wont read anything into one good win until we string a few together.

Fitness maybe.

 

Both teams were playing their 3rd game in 7 days. Only difference was that Miami looked like they were playing their 3rd game in 7 days & RB did not. Miami looked like they did not want to be there from the start.
