    Achara is too narrow defensively. That's a back post look waiting to happen.

    Now we start playing direct, at the 73 minute?

    Today is a lesson in how the season will probably go if we don't put more muscle and speed into the midfield.
    Not seeing Priso so far this season is what makes me question the move. We all wanted to believe this was to open up a spot for Ralph, but he hasn't touched the field yet this year.

    At the rate this is going, Bill Manning will be pulling his usual change of scenery soon while running the “mission accomplished” banner (George Bush circa 2003)

    Can Okello play DM? I wonder if he is being wasted as CM, and instead not moved further back, maybe into a CB role even. The guys size and ability to cover ground could be an immense asset.

    MB too tired from all the great defensive work he's put in this afternoon.

    Watching these sideways and back passes is like watching CMNT circa 1995-2019. No ideas, no creativity, just make the safe pass to the man behind you.

    I hate to say it, but it looks like a better-coached version of last year. Same roster problems are flaring up. I thought after he pulled two players in week one we'd see the same today, but maybe I'm giving BB too much credit for be able to accept his own son's age and relative lack of speed.

    Not that MB was ever a great holder. He's a number eight. We have two relatively slow number eights, no holder.

    I suspect not. His strengths are technique and his size; he doesn't read the game well or react quickly to what's happening around him. It may sound crazy but to me, he should've been made a target man striker. He simply hasn't shown the quick read required to defend much at this level. When the game's ahead of him, he's okay. But in transition his decisions are too slow.

    I'm willing to give him some time to see. There are other guys on this team who have had a lot more time to prove they don't have it.

    He's made a couple of smart defensive decisions already, and had one moment of technique (a weak centering pass back to Salcedo) that let him down. Early days. Technique stuff is correctable; intelligent decisions less so, and he's done okay on that front.

    Either way, with no one stronger and JMR having a poor game today, he should probably start in the next game.

    MOrgan was level there, that should be five.

    TFC lucky not to be down 5-1 with the offside call.

    Honestly they need a computer to make the decision for them. They are too stupid to interpret it otherwise.

    No point taking anything out of this final 30 minutes. This is the definition of garbage time.

    Osorio should have stayed in bed this morning. He stinks today.
