    OK, it wasn't exactly pretty but Okello pinching in made that opportunity happen.

    He’s really never been at the level of being a MLS quality official. And that’s a low bar

    It’s tempting to blame Bradley for the goals because he’s playing centre back tonight, but the real culprit has been Mavinga tonight. Terrible marking has been a pattern for him this season. Debatable if he should return next year imo.

    And that is why I don't see Mavinga being a good idea next season.

    Am I mad for thinking the best “CB” we have is Lawrence? Certainly feels that way

    Mavinga simply no longer cares, strolling and watching as Przybylko jogs by him into our 18 yard box and dings the bar

    Mavinga AGAIN....man needs an anchor beside him telling him what to do & neither Bradley nor Gonzalez are that.

    Taking Mavinga off & putting on a LB as a CB is saying something - just don't know who that's supposed to be aimed at.

    Yep, that was a solid game by Altidore. Looks as fit as I’ve seen him in a long time.

    Team is entirely broken though. They need to majorly clean house.

    Good game by Jozy. He put that effort in all night. He knows he needs to show someone he still has something left in the tank. Okello was good too.

    Mavinga was awful and might be playing his way off the team next year.

    Tough to know what to do with Mavinga. He has been so good for us for so many years. He's battled injury struggles this year, personal issues, and a team that sucks overall. I don't blame him for the intensity being a bit down because of that. We need to be able to evaluate if the intensity will be there when it matters.

    Interesting game.

    Obviously Bradley at CB is very iffy. Beyond the goals that Philly got, there were multiple opportunities for breakaways where Bradley would have had no chance, but Philly didn't take advantage.

    But beside the risk of having Bradley back there, Mavinga was incredibly problematic last night, as others have mentioned. Pair him with Bradley and his lack of speed and occasional zen-like lack of awareness...

    Is Gonzalez injured? I missed that.

    It's really telling to end the game with a left-back & a midfielder as your two CBs... With Zavaleta still on the bench.

    We've been rightfully concerned about Bono, but I think Westberg has also lost his edge. I don't know if it's lack of playing time & game sharpness, or age catching up to him. He's had some gaffes and lack of command of the 6-yard box this year, that we didn't see in the past. Maybe the coaches saw something in training that gave them at least a bit of justification to play Bono so much. Even if that didn't work out either, our record with Westberg has actually been worse this year.

    Petrescu just unbelievable. Multiple blatant yellows for Philly missed (similar to the previous game vs Montreal). I guess he made up for it by not giving a PK on Bradley's handball.

    I believe yes OG is injured, something leg related I think from two games ago they mentioned.

    In the reply it looked like the ball came off Bradley's knee or quad and then his his hand. I don't think they award a PK for a deflection like that (which might be why he didn't give one?)

    Mavinga has been great in the past but boy did he switch off on that 2nd goal. He was man marking him and then as soon as the ball came in he let him go and looks around as if someone else should have been picking him up. I don't know what his thought process was during that play but it wasn't good at all. Same with the first goal, I get he probably wants to protect Bradley and back him up but that left so much open space behind him and Lawrence couldn't cover them...

    Really not too sure how they are going to handle this off-season, curious to see how it all unfolds.
