    Default Man of match, tit(s) of match

    Dichio was a workhorse today, his touches & passing were spot on. He was key in defending as well. I thought the ref let the guys marking him away with murder. DD MOM

    If Ricketts would only lift his head & Robert would give a consistant effort, we'd be better of, joint tit(s) of the game.

    As for that diving Argentinian rug burner, he should've been red carded, a disgraceful performance, mls should censure him.

    Loved D's effort but was ineffectual in his scoring duties...Gotta give Robbo and Velez some love in the workhorse dep.

    WOW, you and I are watching completely different games. Dichio was not good today in my opinion, he can't even win balls in the air which is the most frustrating thing. Man of the match for me was Robert, he looked real sharp to me today.

    And yes, fuck Schellotto!!!

    ok Dichio.... he needs to work on his position big time... And if takes advantage of his big frame more often when covering the ball he would be an AMAZINg stricker....
    Very good game by Marshal and Robert too... the rest were ok...

    I donno why they gave the man of the match to robbo... whoever decides who gets the trophy is on crack! marshal or Robert should have been the top contenders...

    Wow, when the ball was played to Dichio's feet his one touch passing was superb.

    When the ball was played near his noggin, he won it. He also headed out several time while defending. He's the only forward we have that can hold the ball up & bring others into the game.

    Make no mistake, Robert is a talent, he's just lazy. As for Rohan, he plays with his head down, he's getting worse, not better.

    There's a reason he couldn't make it in England, he's overrated & doesn't appear to be able to play with his head up.

    It was a funny game. Everyone seemed to put in a lot of effort. It’s hard to point a finger at anyone, saying "blank had a bad game", yet the game was a scoreless draw.
    My MOTM is Robert. Some good runs, creative play, almost scored. Velez and Marshall were also both very strong. My only lingering concern about Velez is his inability to clear the ball on occasion. He seems unable to put his foot through it like Marshall can.

    bhoybobby, this is the 3rd thread i see you slagging robert. man, you gotta spend less time in beer lines. the guy was very strong today. his lateral moves seemed to really screw up the columbus defence. i definitely think he was our strongest player.

    Dichio, MOTM?

    I am going to have to disagree with you there.

    It was Robert for me.

    I am getting tired of the people who don't understand Dichio's role on this team. He may be the leading scorer for TFC of all time...but that is actually not his role. He is there to hold up the ball...so every time I hear "his scoring duties" I cringe.

    Dichio has a soft touch for a big man and he created many of the opportunities we enjoyed today. He continues to draw defenders who mug him on a consistent basis. People don't appreciate the work that he puts in...

    QFT - Can you put that in 20 point bold font and make it a sticky thread? So many of the posts here and ignorant comments in the stands are made by people who can't grasp this simple fact.

    MOM for me was Marshall. If not for his goalline save, it woulda ended 1-0.

    That's what i thought too. It was just one of those games. Two good defensive teams and no one could break though.

    Dichio's role should be assiatnt coach. Time for him to hang up the boots has come. way to slow. He would be a good mentor for the young guys.

    This team is 1 player shy of being a top team in the league. That plyer is at the striker position. I'm not even asking for an above average striker. Just give us an average striker and it would be a huge upgrade on both Dichio and Cuningham.

    Guys, Dichio is doing a pretty decent job holding up the ball, but in the end he's not enough of a threat to score to be effective. He's slowed down a lot since last year it seems. Many of those headers he used to be getting to were just out of his reach. Great guy, amazing work effort, but not the answer for us up front at this time.

    Cunningham has to be the most fustrating player in history. He continuously does things like steal the ball from the last defender in the 18 yard box. But instead of taking the guy 1v1 straight to the net for a shot, he fucks around until 4 more defenders come back and takes the ball to the corner.

    Robert was lazy yesterday?? huh???

    I guess you missed the long runs he made, the great dekes, the moves past ballwatching Columbus players, nearly scoring a goal and nearly assisting on another.

    Marvell Wynne for me. Strong up and down and caused them some havoc. Having said that I didn't think anyone was great yesterday.

    I'm sure with Dichio half the problem with his headers was the wind taking the ball for a journey. He did have a few nice touches, but doesn't seem willing to use his body enough.

    My MOM is Wynne. If the one play where he took a ball off a Columbus attacker, pushed it forward, then ran down the field to be on the wing to be an open target and almost crossed a perfect pass in.

    Dichio held the ball up front ,had a few nice flick ons ,drew a lot of attention to free up space for Robert the game went flat when he came off.
    The goals will come

    Err. Actually, I wasn't slagging him. All I stated was that he is no doubt talented, but lazy, it's like he does the minimum. I think with a bit more application/effort he'd be brilliant.

    As for Ricketts, yeah, I was slagging him. He consistantly plays with his head down. I hope I'm wrong, but I think we're gonna be dissapointed in what he brings to the table.

    As for DD, the fact is he is the only presense we have up front. MoJo & Carver know this & are, as Carver stated, trying to fix that situation.

    I love what Mo & Carver have done, but we're razor thin in depth. Hopefully we can get another couple of capable bodies in for cover in midfield & competetion up front.

    No, he's our center forward. His job is to play with his back to the net and knock down balls played in the air and to dish off the ball to his strike partner or winger. When the ball is played to him along the ground, his job is to hold the ball while the midfiielders come forward. In either case, pace has NOTHING to do with his role on the team as the ball is supposed to be played to him.

    For anyone who thinks Robert was lazy, go back and watch the highlights, he freaking created every single highlight of the game. He was insane today and all over the park.

    As for Dichio, go back and watch how many times the ball is crossed to him or passed to him in the air and he doens't get his head on it? My wife at one point actually yelled out "Dichio, you piece of shit!" that's how frustrated she was that this guy is 6'5 and can't win balls in the air. Cunningham might be lazy, but when the ball was played to him in the air, he found a way to bring it down. Also, Roogsy, I just don't see all these great opportunities Dichio created yesterday, except the one that he ran down and passed it back. That's about all I remember. It says enough that when you look at the highlights on MLSNEt.com all you hear is Robert creating opportunities.

    I was very pleased with Robert myself. Some good runs, deft passing, and created our one real scoring that looked to threaten.

    The Schelotto ought to be shot out-of-hand.

    I don't get this mentality whatsoever. Where in the world do you hear of a great striker being good because he holds the ball up well but doens't score??? If you hear what Carver said after the game, he kept Dichio in there because he was thinking set plays. Which is where he is the worst to me. Never in the right position, never gets his head on a ball. And good strikers by the way can do both. Hold the ball up well and score goals. It is not one or the other. If Dichio was doing such a great job then believe me, we wouldn't be openly shopping a striker right now.

    ^^ the point is that Dichio, though #9, is not played as a striker but as a centre-forward. That, and people ought to stop judging him as a striker.
