    Luchi is fine as a coaching hire. Will he get more out of our guys than the other candidates? Maybe. I'm not sure it matters that...

    Sometimes that's how I feel when I watch our team, especially with the defense and the aimless possession and back passing.

    We will see if it will be the same level of enthusiasm to fire MA in the last few dozens of pages on that thread.

  4. nivla liked Beckham7's post in the thread The Official Luchi Gonzalez Thread.

    I figured he should get an official thread, rather than one wondering where he's at.

  5. nivla liked QuakeAttack's post in the thread The next (7th) Earthquakes coach.

    I'm fine with Luchi, I'm fine with Ian, and I'm fine with pretty much any warm body who has any soccer sense. It comes down to the...

  6. nivla liked QuakeAttack's post in the thread a small team.

    Generally agreed with Nathan, Beason, Benji, Marie as looking good but not starting caliber for any MLS team. Although I thought Nathan...

    Players seem in good spirits. Saw a few leaving practice when dropped by office shortly after noon today. A handful walked by me, and...

    Is the hot dog outside the same price this game?

  9. nivla liked falvo's post in the thread a small team.

    Draft picks in MLS though, don’t do much. I’m all for utilizing college players and I believe in many instances they are still better...

  10. nivla liked hc897's post in the thread The official Jackson Yueill thread.

    Unfortunately for Cowell, the first team has proven to be a pretty big failure at taking promising prospects and turning them into good...

  11. nivla liked don gagliardi's post in the thread The official Jackson Yueill thread.

    Well, it’s clear that both Jackson and Cade have been told not to do what they do best. No incisive forward passes from the captain and...

  12. nivla liked don gagliardi's post in the thread The official Jackson Yueill thread.

    Reminder, as a great statistician from St. Louis once said (and I paraphrase), 90 percent of the game is mental and the other half is...

    I think I am criticizing Yueill in many games. Even at PPP, I got so frustrated by him and I screamed "You know you can pass forward,...

  14. nivla liked S.J. Jim's post in the thread The official Jackson Yueill thread.

    I suppose there were times in the past where I thought he had the potential to be a very good (not "great") player, but to my eyes he...

  15. nivla liked Scott Rohde's post in the thread Pre-match: San Jose Earthquakes - Los Angeles FC (Saturday, 8/20) pregame thread.

    LAFC missed the playoffs last year. Instead of taking all of 2022 to decide on a new coach and figure out what kind of players they...

  16. nivla liked don gagliardi's post in the thread Post-match: FC Dallas - San Jose Earthquakes (Saturday, 8/13) postgame thread [R].

    Yeah, unlike Driussi and Ferreira, Jebo doesn’t get to earn soft goals against the Quakes defense.

    What's good about winning the duels when you give the ball away immediately. See Remedi and Nathan.

    Best case scenario LAFC 5 - SJ 1. Jebo goal. And the hot dog outside is still $5.

    We can keep talking about GK, LB, RB, CB, DM, CM LM, RM, ACM, CF, the coach, mistakes, errors or whatever every game. I don't even want...

    I got what I came for - a Jebo goal! So that makes it a great result tonight. :thumbsup:
