    So looking at RSL's stats on whoscored, they have similar numbers to us in many categories. They're more direct in their passing and rely on both freekicks and longer passes to setup second opportunities in the box -- so they have quite a few junk goals and by winning the second ball.

    We possess and pass the ball better and use it on the ground better, which is sort of contrary to their defensive set, which is designed to shut down more direct long-ball teams, so we might have an edge there.

    I'd settle for a point on the road here.

    a couple of different odds sites have a 1-1 draw as their fave.

    I can see a draw but we're going to have to start figuring out ways to get more goal scoring opportunities because RSL probably won't allow much playing Mastroeni-ball if we do our usual and try to walk it in.

    Makes you wonder if the ankle is 100%. That could certainly explain the calf issue.

    FWIW, team flew out last night



    Fully expect us to go for it off the bat & then fade after 60 minutes - inevitable mountain game approach.


    The dog's reaction remains the same to all this

    Wow, that was truly the worst goalie catch I've seen in a looong time.

    Same lineup. Interesting. Kerr makes the bench; Priso still hurt; Mavinga not deemed fit (or good?) enough for Bon Bradley.

    Away games in the west are throw aways - if we get a point, that's good. No yellow, no injuries, learn a bit. Nothing else.

    He made some comments in Instagram about being not dealt with honestly or something. I suspect BB has a zero tolerance policy for that kind of stuff.

    He's a great dude and a good defender but his emotional issues have been a problem throughout his career.

    I suspect BB also has a zero tolerance policy for people's personal issues, which is less pleasant -- I'm not really a fan of ruthlessness in any venue -- but not surprising. He wants zero disturbances outside football.

    I have a feeling Mavinga is not here by the end of the season if he continues to be nailed to the bench.

    A 600k transfer fee for Jesus is a steal. Such a good player.
