Completely agree with this. Maybe it's the fact that DeRo, Pontius, Boskovic, and Salihi are not fully fit (injury, late signing/visa), but I don't see DCU demonstrating the fundamentals necessary to be a possession team right now. This better improve. Again, it may be a pure fitness issue, but the movement off the ball isn't there. You know, the small quick (constant) adjustments of players off the ball making themselves available in open passing lanes (triangles anyone?). Occasionally moving toward your teammate in possession to offer a passing outlet. Not seeing it. Some are blaming this loss on poor D and bad distribution from the back, but movement up front leads to improved distribution. Hey I give KC credit. They played with good defensive shape, but come on man. Too often I saw Pontius or Najar make nice moves out wide only to find themselves cut off from support (runs in the middle were poorly timed, and/or there were no players moving to them for easy outlet passes). This repeatedly lead to loss of possession. What's more painful is that if DCU can't play a possession game, it is not equipped to play any other style either. How can we play defend/counter with mediocre defense and no speed (or size) up top? We're not even a scrappy/physical club. Our players were routinely beaten to 50/50s, and our central defenders struggled to match the physical play of Kamara. It is Olsen's job to have a vision for this team's style of play. He should then assemble a group that is suited to play in this style. He should then coach the group and make sure they are expressing the desired style. I understand it is difficult to find players with the talent/first touch to execute a possession game with MLS$, but no more excuses. The team has to have players/tactics ready at the start of the season. We are not league favorites. We cannot afford to give away points in any part of the season and hope to win a playoff spot. vamos united.
