    We're starting to look like some of our bad times under Vanney - constantly recycling, trying to set up for the perfect play, rather than moving it quickly and really running at and challenging players.

    Focus and intensity both a little lacking so far. It's like we're trying to figure out an approach still and it's 20 mins in, against Seattle's 'B' team.

    Man, this is fucking awful right now.

    We're just giving away bad shit all over the park.

    IT's a bit embarrassing how badly we're playing right now.

    Could be down to third game in a week, but I also feel this is where we really miss Ritchie - he was the only player we had who could really run at guys and get in behind. Nelson is trying to be that guy, but ... well, he's trying.

    Eek.

    This 'Pozuelo free floating' thing doesn't work. It just ruins any cohesion in transition.

    On TV, we look like half-hearted dog shit. Late passes, poor touches, tentative movement, little supporting movement.

    not good enough at fullback on either side...the game plan of any team facing toronto should be going at the fullbacks and results could be pretty good...gotta go with something like criscito left back and rutty right back

    Add to that, I have no idea what Akinola’s role is. Two games like this now

    I'm thinking maybe we should be a 4-4-2 - Jesus and Ayo the out-and-out strikers, Poz sitting below them, etc. 3 in the midfield doesn't seem to be working for us.

    Giving the ball to Nelson is like letting Bono take a goal kick

    Awful.

    Wrong tactics, poor effort generally.

    Absolute dog s.hit. Getting dominated by Seattle’s B team who played mid week and flew across the country in a different time zone.

    Bradley Sr has to go. He puts this horrible line up out there. Thompson and Petrasdo are not full backs and get exposed over and over.

    Bradley Jr had at least 6 giveaways. But we know won’t be taken off.

    Nelson again running around like a chicken with his head cut off. Enough. Sub him now.

    Salcedo, disaster class gets skinned alive for the goal.

    And Akinola, another disaster half. Literally does nothing. Is hopeless and ffs, completely out of shape. Can’t move.

    Shameful half in a must win. Again.

    Manning created this mess, has to be fired tonight. Stop the rot.

    Quit being negative. /s

    Tactics all on the college coach Bradley. Against Seattle’s B team. Manning and Bradley have to go. Enough of this garbage.

    I'd hook him for Schaff now. Somebody has to run at some point and he is probably the only guy we have in the bench that will.

    I genuinely don't understand how Salcedo sucks this bad, but... he just does?

    Good experience (nearly 50 caps for Mexico??!?), athletic, strong on the ball for a CB. And he's terrible.

    I brushed off his early struggles completely, I thought for sure a guy of his pedigree would prove his quality once he's settled in. I can't even criticize the signing, the money maybe, but the player? Honestly at a loss, he should be good but my lord is he not good.

    How does a team in MLS not even get an accidental, undeserved clean sheet in 26 games? Takes some doing to find ways to concede in so many consecutive matches.

    Akinola doing the ol' oversized-shirt-to-hide-the-gut move I pulled all the time in my 20s.

    I think people are being harsh - ponderous is a fair criticism but there have been moments. The young guys are off the pace today.

    Didn’t see the goal but earlier in the half I thought we played okay and stung some decent passes together.

    That said, I think something has to change up top. Not sure Akinola is still justifying his starting spot. Although, maybe my opinion will change when LI slots in for Nelson
