    That may have ended the season - huge difference between 34 and 36 points right now.....can’t throw away points at home at this point of the season. To be fair, it’s hard to say we “deserved” the three points tonight....

    Also, Puig's first name is now Ricky according to Wileman.

    there have been a lot of points we didn't deserve early, and lots we lost but did in the middle - this makes playoffs really hard but I'm not going to complain TOO much.

    True. Still bad positioning by Bono.

    Those are the challenges of the Mavinga of old. Good to see.

    I think with a win tonight playoffs would have been possible, but really hard to see that happening now. Miami, Cincinnati, NE, Atlanta & Charlotte all have games in hand.

    A tie isn't too bad in the end, but still should have won.

    Drawing at home after leading always feels like a loss.

    Pretty even game. LI trying to force too much today.

    jj breaks his cold snap so that's a positive. Still time to do it.

    We weren't great - did we deserve to win, probably not.

    But fuck me it's more points dropped in large part because of Bono. I'm losing track of the wins he's turned into draws and the draws into losses. He's literally gifting a goal a game. He's giving Warren Creavalle a run for his money compared to that time we trotted him out at RB and he was directly responsible for a goal against in like 5 games running.

    Bob, put Westberg back in, he can't possibly be worse.

    I'll take a good match but damn

    just a lot of points dropped even at 4-1-3, could feasibly be 5-0-3 or even 6-0-2

    At this point, replace the entire fuckin' GK room.

    Nelson's brain farts are getting less and less common and I'm starting to turn on him. We still need a couple defenders and a heir apparent to Bradley, along with ANY depth midfield, but I'm starting to see the team

    Crazy match.

    It was pleasure to see VV play again in the real.

    We needed our best eleven quite a few games ago to make the playoffs. Hope Bradley is going to be active and smart in his acquisitions, we still need a lot.

    Bono has been not good for a long time but this is too much. Itís a relief when he makes a save.

    Overall a fair result based on play. Bono could do nothing on that last goal. Would have liked to beat Vanney. Never a fan of his. Hoping LA misses the playoffs and he gets fired.

    Although a tie, we could of said that we would of won with the two italians willing to play to each other. If we could of worked a bit harder, you would have to notice that we need to not let opponents get through us but this is uncharacteristical of Bradley. Hence, if these routes that people go on and stuff depict where we should be, its almost like we aren't out of the playoff picture but its imperative ethat we know where we stand. Thats why when I think shooting the ball is a good idea, you would argue that a tie may not be abismall given the fact ongoing points is what you would want.

    - braley- works hard, but obiously stayed too long with the guy that was able to shoot.
    - isnigne, - a bit of passes were off and shots were off but passes to Bernadeschi were good
    - bernadeschie- i would shsoot more, but was given a penalty..
    - other than that the roster plays well

    I called it weeks ago. People should just enjoy having a competitive team again. Realistically though, other teams have games in hand, we have almost zero depth, and we have some obvious weak positions. So no, we never were going to get in.

    Really enjoy seeing some of the neat plays some of our players are doing. Also liked BB's subs, they were the ideal choices. 2023 should be bright.

    Iíll hold out hope til itís over. Weíre really not that far off the mark, all it takes a little bit of luck and no Bono in goal.

    Listening into the post game interview with BB. Normally I don't mind Mike Singh but man his questions are such a waste of time.

    1. Does that goal by Jimenez help with his confidence? 2. Does that loss mean that the team has lost some belief in their ability to make the playoffs?

    If I was BB I wouldn't even give time to answering these questions, everyone already knows what the answers are.

    Orlando and Columbus are virtually untouchable now. Those points Bono cost us in Miami are underlined tonight.

    second goal had an expected probability of scoring of around 3%

    watch goals at 0.25 speed on YouTube there’s no need to dive on either goal
