    I watched the game replay and Bern is clearly not responsible. He's not even in the picture. I think he apologized for maybe a few bad passes.

    https://youtu.be/4zEyDyLIlWo At 0:43 Berna makes a soft pass that gets intercepted leading to the first goal.

    For the second goal, I think he made an errant pass that led to the corner that the second goal came from, however the buildup isnít in the highlights.

    Here's the clip of Jimenez asking to take the PK. I don't think it's that bad and Berna seemed to take it well. I like that he's stepping up to try and take it rather than backing off just because he hasn't been playing well. Jimenez took his share of PKs in Poland. There's clips of Jimenez taking some PKs at 3:20 and 3:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZJ4X5qqIbw He seems to take them well.

    Bernadeschi made the pass that led to the penalty - Caldwell even remarks upon it.

    Same thing happened before the rush that led to their corner which got the second goal.

    After the pass was made by Berna it was still just a three on three break Bob could of mentioned that his son doesnít make a challenge on the Nashville ball carrier and McNaughton runs away from the danger which Caldwell does comment on. Bob also doesnít mention that itís Michaels man that out jumps him on the header leading to the second goal.

    Still absolutely buzzing from that game last night. Picking up all 3 points on the road and scoring 4 goals against a really good defensive team bodes well for the future.

    Exactly. Funny how Bob didn't see that. And if you watch on the third goal we give up, if Zimmerman didn't get to it, Romney incredibly left Bradley in the dust again and was wide open and he would have headed it home also...

    3 points was great and ending the 1 year road winless streak was crucial heading into this final stretch run.

    But....what was very alarming how bad we look defending on set pieces. Every single free kick, corner or long throw in was pure danger. Mcarthy missed a sitter in minute 4, Romney missed a wide open header early...and then while not a set piece, the last play of the game, was another wide open header given up...thankfully the guy missed the net.

    We need to fix up the defensive issues immediately or everyone will see last night and see how to exploit us on set pieces. Personally, I'd put Mike on a goal post when we are defending corners...he gets beat literally every single time in the air, so put someone who can actually defend in the air, or at least will try too. Mavinga and McNaughton will put their bodies on the line....that's what you need, especially going up against some of the big guys we face.

    PS hopefully Kay is back soon. Kay adds a two way presence and he can also win aireal battles.

    I would like to propose the Richie Laryea Hat Trick.
    For consideration, comment and subject to any further clarification and definition by any of the community.

    1/ A Foul committed, a Yellow Card. The full tilt pest getting into an opponents face or jawing at the Referee.
    2/ A Goal or Assist. The team commitment and work rate.
    3/ A Penalty Kick; the securing of. Master of the Dark Arts.

    1/ Fede does make the pass that gets intercepted leading to the first goal.
    2/ Some confusion about the second goal.

    Latest is he was actually marking the second last man and 'deemed himself responsible' for putting the last man 'on-side'.

    However, the judgement of this play seems to be a PRO error upheld as not a 'Clear & Obvious' error even after VAR!?

    Unless there are other angles? To many of us Nashville was off-side!...

    One thing I hope is clear in this market is that we're not going to crucify a player for maybe potentially possibly in a blue moon causing a goal because the ref is bad - It's starting to seem like Berna's the kind of guy to get in his own head about the media and about what people think of him. I love the personal responsibility, but he needs to know we won't suddenly turn on him if something he happens to be physically there for and cause ends up losing us a game

    I don't know. That's razor thin. Plus a bad angle. I don't begrudge that goal standing.

    it only looks tight bc of the angle, look at the lines on the pitch, it's not necessarily close at all.

    Agree.
    Thinking it was more a personality and role thing; his character... leadership and DP positions.
    Also, in hindsight, regarding his perceived responsibility, may explain his need and insistence with JJ in taking the penalty.
    If such a match situation was not the case in Fede's mind, I think JJ would have been, for lack of better phrasing... allowed to take it.
    Re-watched the game yesterday.
    Immediately after the penalty there is brief footage of Fede approaching JJ; them talking and everything seemed ok.
    I suspect both Fede and Lorenziello, the rest of the team, BB/management and us supporters would like to see JJ 'get sorted'.
    Although, TBF, JJ's performance, overall, on average, statistically, likely, is about where I expect it and it should be expected.
    IIUC, JJ's career conversion rate against match appearances is about a goal every third game; about what he has achieved at TFC.
    I think he was in an over-production mode.
    I mean most of the rankings I've seen indicate the PKO Ekstraklasa to always be behind MLS; at about 10 spots.
    I hoping with the team and new talent surrounding him now, JJ will find the groove and elevate his production.

    Insigne not even nominated for goal of the week. I canít believe itís not good enough for the top four this week.

    Berna's positioning on the second goal was fine. He needed to be marking a player and was there for it. Criscito left Bunbury by himself for a free header.

    Likely.
    Fair.
    Although seems Romney may have been 'triple' teamed and still managed...
    TFC needs to work on these; defending corners and set pieces.

    Nobody was crucifying Bernadeschi here.

    My point was it is positive that he put his hand up at the half for his perceived mistakes & the team rallied.

    Michael returning the previous game assist favour to Lorenzo.

    Me likes the Totti-esque celebration.

    I suspect his wife is having a baby?

    The penalty well that was a number of errors, the worst of which was Bono. There a number of times where we had the ball cycling it around since nashville were well set and then bono gets it and gives it away urghhh

    We sat with a number of TFC fans and we made some noise! Insigne's goal was magical, especially as my son and I were discussing how he's not fit.

    Nashville crowd hated the ref, not sure why.

    Great new stadium (beer more expensive then BMO!) but nothing around has been finished, took a great photo as we walk up the entrance but cannot load it

    Mukhtar just won the MLS Skills Challenge so I guess we can't be too upset that he did so well against us.
