    Let’s just say what this really is: “tactics” here is really the manager’s preference for more experienced players.
    Big picture, it was one game. If Fraser thinks he should be playing every single game then he should leave because frankly he’d be deluded, not to mention nowhere near good enough at football.

    The manager prefers better players, not sure how that is meant to be surprising. Delgado and Oso are both easily better than Fraser.

    If Fraser wants to go play for a manager who is tactically inept and picks players based on their patience rather than ability then he is free to leave.

    Just had my first free Bacardi!
    Hats off to the grounds crew, the pitch looks outstanding ... it’s March 7.
    Rest of the league needs to take notice of our pitch...eliminate fake grass from this league.

    Agreed. Based on the current rate of transmission in parts of the U.S. - some of which are communal, I think it's inevitable.

    It's unfortunate, but it's the right thing to do to prevent the situation from spiraling out of of control.

    Endoh injured in training.

    Side note: no draft beer inside the stadium. Shots and wine and cans only

    This is ridiculous. We kiboshed a loan for Fraser after Bradley got injured to apparently stick him on the bench while the coach lies about what he's doing. What the fuck.

    It's either Fraser or Osorio start. I'd rather go with Osorio.

    Fraser has to earn his spot. I trust Vanney.

    Disagree, it’s much more than one game.

    You going to sign this tune the next time we let a Kaye slip through our fingers?

    Better to attempt forward passes and have them picked off than just go sideways and backwards all the time.

    The way we play means we will have wayward passes sometimes.

    If the trade off is completely throwing tactics out the window and picking sides based on patience then yes I’ll keep singing it as that is a completely mental way to run a football club.

    Fraser isn’t Kaye anyway. Nor is even Kaye good enough to be intentionally weakening your team for no reason every single game. That isn’t how you develop talent. Your logic would have us in last place with a line up of Fraser, Chapman and Hamilton.

    Fraser has huge deficiencies in his game and is nowhere near good enough to play every game. Vanney has just started multiple young players today. Delgado has been a mainstay since he was several years younger than Fraser. Why? Because he showed he was good enough. Fraser hasn’t.

    Again, disagree. Delgado has a good number of games with Chivas before he ever arrived here. Would a younger, less experienced version of Delgado ever get the chance to get those minutes under Vanney?

    You underestimate how quickly young players can improve and the importance of real game time.

    Delgado broke into the side because the guy ahead of him in his role was a regular squad player and not Michael Bradley. That's the only difference.
