    Do MLS players have a work ethic/maturity problem?

    Are they too comfortable in their roles with so much league parity?

    The Lens coach Franck Haise mentioned the other day that Adam Buksa is...

    It would, but we couldn't click when it mattered. It's not going to happen against Philly. I'd just be happy to lose by two or less. (Although, hey, Charlotte beat them 4-0 last week when it counted,...

    He’ll take the Saudi offer. He’s amoral and it’s more than anyone else will offer by several miles. With Man Utd having to pick up chunks he was shopped by them, allegedly, during the off-season and...

    Just woeful again today. No chemistry up front, Italians playing woefully sloppily. Bernie with some quality but also some bad giveaways, Criscito having a very poor game. Kaye average, Bradley okay,...

    I thought he missed less than he usually misses.

    Kerr's playing okay, that's nice to see. Forwards are all having a tough time though. Good work effort, good positions, lousy end product. O'Neill...

    He may see Mavinga coming back on a reduced wage as the third choice, O'Neill having a backup role next year.

    I hope we win tonight. As much as I dislike Columbus, they're plus five and above .500...

    Looking ahead to the Philly game, if Osorio is still out and potentially MAK as well, I wonder if he plays Okello. A guy that big could come in handy against a team that presses as psychotically high...

    Yah, that's it. Or similar. It was a different Juve-centric pub, I believe, but Italian.

    Big, big offseason. If they have patience to do it properly -- more patience than we have as fans, let's be frank -- they'll take what they've got, fix the glaring problems at keeper and in defense,...

    Or he saw Lawrence get into a loud verbal argument with Jozy in the middle of a game last season and decided "I don't want a guy on my team who defends players from the other team, period." I...

    This makes a lot of sense, particularly if they picked up all those salary charges. If the league gave them the slots but they're nailed for any loan or transfer where they pick up a portion of the...

    Jordan Peruzza looking pretty good wide left last night in the 1-0 win over Philly. Served up a bunch of dangerous crosses. Mbongue had a nice finish.

    Yeah, his contract is up at the end of November. I suspect at this point we will lose him.

    If he shows good in MLS, after making the MLSNEXT/USL first-teams two seasons in a row, letting him go...

    He cost us at least 15 points.

    I mean, it's not like he got better. Ever. He's had the exact same two-goals-per-game average now since 2018.

    We couldn't afford NOT to replace him. That was a...

    Given that we signed Insigne, Jimenez and Salcedo in that window, it can't have been that limited.

    Don't see why we couldn't also have signed a starting goalie.

    As Ensco points out, there is no "one style" in top level tactics anymore. It's all tendency based, based on the opponent. Starting formations don't really indicate what's going to happen after the...

    He’s one of the options, for sure. He was openly hostile to Shaff in one game even though he was at fault.

    The blowup with Armas was over him subbing in Ayo to replace Jozy. He thought Ayo was...

    I can seem that rationale… but Shaff is 22, not 28. The difference between a winger and an inverted winger is clearly teachable. we’ve already seen him drift into the box and score from wide left; he...

    The difference being who's in charge. With Curtis still here, we just kept playing him, as he cost $6M. In Mexico, they benched his ass, then suspended his ass, then shipped his ass back to Brazil.
