I saw the twitter post about the RB tucking in. FWIW, Cuevas always does that so it may or may not mean anything. I think they are kind of trying to play the GB system, but the offensive style that has made that (somewhat) successful to this point relies upon through balls, good crossing, and overlapping runs. This team almost completely doesn’t look for or try any of those. Reyna will cross as long as he has dribbled to the end line and can’t dribble any more. Yow would much rather shoot or play the ball short, again, after trying to beat 2-3 guys. Busio has shown some ability to play the ball to the overlap, but he still plays like a CM playing wing. I agree that they should get better as they play together more, but there are clearly some flaws that aren’t just fixed by a little chemistry. I always know @ussoccer97531 has seen these players more than me, and when he says things like “may not qualify” I know to be ready for disappointment. I still think they will qualify on talent alone, but there is some serious growth that has to happen with these players. Fuentes has been the only attacker who has shown any type of vision and ability to create consistent chances. Consider the last cycle. Durkin, Carleton, Akinola, Weah, and Sargent all had fantastic vision and made great runs. Playing together for 3 years helped, but they had a way of making these long lead passes that completely opened up the defense and led to goal scoring opportunities. This team has none of that. They don’t work together, they don’t have the vision, they don’t look comfortable. I can make a 5-10 minute clip just of Yow ignoring overlapping runs. I could make a 2 hour clip of Reyna trying to dribble through the entire team with wide open teammates in front of the goal. I’ve been pretty impressed with Leyva, but he plays the safe pass so much that he hasn’t really been an offensive weapon, aside from that cameo yesterday. I’d like to see him start as the 8 to see if he could create a spark with some offense. Even still, all we will have to do is beat Panama or Canada again and we qualify. I just don’t have very high hopes if and when we do qualify.
