Two points from hosting the first playoff game and two points from missing the playoffs altogether. No pressure.....
Yes! Mender was not the guy to sign. They needed a top flight center back. An Opara like player on this team would change everything.Good to see Reynoso resign for what will be the rest of his 20s. Very talented player that we need to do a better job of building around him. Need to get center back help this winter
You had me worried with the word "resign" (as in turning in your resignation letter...)Good to see Reynoso resign for what will be the rest of his 20s. Very talented player that we need to do a better job of building around him. Need to get center back help this winter
At this point it might be better to miss the playoffs. We would clearly be a one and done and something needs to change with this team to try and get to the next stepOn the bright side, if we lose to Vancouver, I don’t have to eat crow about Heath.
On the really bright side, I don’t have to either way. It’ll just be funnier if we collapse out of the playoffs immediately after having given this clown an extension.
We'll get a lot of players back from the injured pool, but yes, we can use some new ones as well. We should have a lot of room cap space for salaries (you'll find the Loons near the bottom of this chart).same old story. Loons need to possess the ball more, and find a way to generate more high-percentage attacking opportunities. you can't plan on winning every match 1-0.
I think they need to take a hard look at the roster and make some changes before next season.
That's a good observation. We tend to lose the ball a lot in the opposition's box. Unfortunately, the killer instinct is lacking with Amarilla. His job is to put the ball in the net. Rey and Fraga are there to facilitate the passing to set up said goal. Many teams in MLS have the same issueI'm only a casual soccer fan, so I will pose this question:
with the striker position, is it the players, or is it the system?
it seems like every year, Heath brings in some new guy who is supposed to produce more goals, but it doesn't happen.
to my untrained eyes, it seems as if the Loons are always trying to make the "cute" pass or the perfect pass, and a lot of the time, they lose possession without ever getting a shot on net. that seems to be more of a system issue than a talent issue - but I could be wrong.....
I miss guys like Molino or Finlay who seemed to have a simpler but more direct approach - get down the field as fast as possible and kick the freaking ball at the net.
