    He played amazing. Making great runs, hustling, getting on the ball, he's doing it all!

    Yeah he's playing very well, but that doesn't mean he has to start. It's always a good idea to have guys like him on the bench who can come in to the game late and do what he's doing.

    Jarrod Smith's cousin needs to become a member on this board.

    He's fucking awesome. I kinda like that he's a sub. I think bringing him in early in the second half is a masterstroke.

    well since we're not getting our striker for a bit i think we should start Smith,

    but not replacing Ricketts....

    Take off DD,

    Slot El Lobo as our frontman,
    and just slide smith into Guevara's spot....

    Bring Danny on around the 65 mark for Smith, (up front)
    Cunny on for Ricketts around the 70 mark... (behind danny)

    Have the fast/furious out there for the last 25 mins or so....
    Im pretty sure their tear up the worn down defenders

    Then I'd probably bring in James or Tebily in for Robert,
    and bump Jimmy B into a defensive mid-role....

    Finish the game like this:
    --------Dichio
    ------------Cunny
    -------Guevara
    ----Brennan Edu Robbo
    (James/Tebily) Velez Tyronne Wynne

    But we're undefeated, so we shouldnt really question it until we loose on

    He has been outstanding, but I'm not sure he should be starting over Ricketts.

    Of course, giving him the start might make Ricketts step up his game.

    He's earned some more playing time...depending on how the game was going, I might sub out Edu at the half and put Smith in.

    DD gave us an amazing effort with a nice finish tonight 7 minutes in. Now someone is saying start someone else. Did you watch the f**king match tonight? This would have been a draw or worse if it wasn't for DD manhandling the opposition early on.

    Can't we just all get along? DD is pure class at the MLS level.

    very impressed with Smith tonight. of course, the fact that DC was pushing more men forward helped him find some room but he definitely works hard and has decent pace.

    I like him as a 60th minute sub for either Robert or Ricketts, whichever needs to come off first.

    Right now, change nothing. let's just keep getting good results.

    he played 40 minutes and he showed what he can do.
    Crosses, runs with the ball, passes, hustling the defence...you name it. Oh and he almost scored a goal.
    Can you imagine if you put him for a couples matches for 90 minutes? with Robert and Guevara and Dich, I'm sure he will score a couple for us.
    Somebody mentioned above to leave it to the coach. Of course we do but I would love to see him starting over Ricketts, maybe it will give Ricketts something to fight for and that's to get his starting position back. there is no harm in being competitive.

    Look at our defence, there is NO WAY for Velez and Marshall to give a chance to Tebily and JJ to take their positions. they are playing like they are starting their last game and I love that spirit of competition that Carver created in this team.

    Dichio also played well defensively with the goal lone clear of the Fred shot. Although Smith played well I think Dichio should still be the starter with Smith coming in to replace him. If this is how Carver sets it up I suspect Cunny is on his way out.

    Agree with you 100%. jarod Smith should be starting over RR in my books. he ahs done more than RR with less playing time.

    I know the coach doesn't want to tinker with a winning lineup but it's been 5 games now and I don't think RR should be a starter. Give Smith more playing time and I think this team will be even better than it already is.

    Don't you agree jloome?????. Where is your analysis on tonights game??????

    I definitely like the idea of holding Robert and Ricketts against the likes of Smith; Robert has stepped up (since he was first subbed with Smith), now lets see Ricketts step up.

    There is no other team stronger than us in midfield.

    Smith produces 10x better than Ricketts and considering he makes 17k is pretty shocking.

    Why play your trump card now when you already have a winning hand? You people make no sense at all.

    DD played very well tonight.
    And Ricketts > Smith. Smith played very well, and is good on the ball. But not as good as Ricketts and his understanding of the play developing around him isn't as solid as Ricketts. RR ripped them up several times tonight.

    Great point.

    H ehustles more, he tackles better, he shows more grit, he dribbles with his head up and he makes only 17k.

    Don't you agree Jloome?

    With Amado on international duty for the next four games, I'd stick Smith into that second attacking roll and have him play off Dichio must as what happened tonight.

    It would be a slightly more conventional 4-4-2 but that's fine.

    He certainly fit right in and seems to have great ball skills although may be a touch slow but I don't care.

    RR has played himself off the team, no doubt he's a good player, he just has to earn his time.
