    MLS.com apparently thinks that NYCFC is going to come into Frisco and score a bag load of goals. We'll see if they are correct.

    Blech.

    It's getting to the point where I'm starting to feel bad for Colman.

    More wasted chances = more lost points.

    Its early in the season and the team has a lot of new parts. Its okay if theyre still building and growing over the season, but if this is the best we can hope for then there is trouble down the road.

    I hope Colman starts putting them away soon, because so far hes one of the strangest occurrences in the history of the club. The striker who cant score.

    Colman watch: No change. Still 0 for everything.

    New gripe: Jesse maybe getting a bit too lackadaisical with his ball handling and distribution choices.

    Jesse had another sub par game. The goal was his fault. He set up a wall that did not cover a corner of the goal. Both corners were open and Villa went right at the obvious choice...the corner that he could hit by bending the ball with his right foot. Thats his responsibility and speaks directly to the running criticism of him that he does not organize well or command the box with leadership.

    Another note I forgot to mention previously...congrats to Ryan Hollingshead who has now recovered from an accident that he is lucky to have survived and saw his first minutes yesterday. Ill be rooting for him this year.

    He kept heading the ball...turning his forehead into hamburger... I am surprised he played so long.

    Anyone else getting tired of Grana making another stupid mistake that cost a goal? I know he's good offensively but the + / - on how many of his shots/passes crosses have resulted in goals versus the number of times he's slipped / fouled / or been beaten are in the negative category I believe. I'm ready to see Hollingshead or Cannon to at least push Grana.

    Agreed. Seitz is the better organizer and leader in the back and Jesse probably just beats him on the showstopping saves.

    Grana is getting annoying. He needs to calm down.

    Hedges eats nails for breakfast.

    I wonder if that performance while injured actually opens eyes and helps more than his usual great work does. He is all business out there and I know how lucky I am that he's here because he's the best CB we've ever had. Zimmerman is now close but I bet if one missed a month the team would do better with Hedges and someone else than Zimmerman and someone else. In a few years might be different but experience counts.

    NYC did not score a bagload of goals. They scored zero from the run of play and created very few chances.

    They seemingly patched Hedges up and shoved him back onto the field pretty quickly. Was I the only one worried about a concussion?

    I'm sure Twellman was somewhere having an aneurysm about it too.

    I'd like to see the wall that stops Villa's shot. Maybe the Mavs can draw one up.
    Did anybody check the actual time of the alleged 3 minutes of injury time (or whatever it's called now)? Seemed like 1 minute at most when accounting for Sean Johnson's screwing around.
    Man, I'm really excited to see the flood of goals when Colman breaks though his ever-worsening yips. I feel for the guy. He works hard, but the more he tries, the worse it gets.

    I think Colman has a bunch of goals in him.

    I was looking for a famous quote about scoring goals. I remembered one that kind of supports letting Colman keep trying but then I found this quote of beauty from George Best:
    "If you'd given me the choice of going out and beating four men and smashing a goal in from thirty yards against Liverpool or going to bed with Miss World, it would have been a difficult choice. Luckily, I had both."

    Playing keeper is all about angles. You build walls to eliminate certain angles, particularly to eliminate half of the goal as an option, and then the keeper can manage the other half. Unless of course the shot is highly accurate and dips over the wall, which is rare.

    I would invite you to go back and watch the free kick. Urruti is plainly telling Jesse to move his wall over a few feet to Jesse's left because its very obvious that the wall is not covering that side. It never happens because Jesse doesn't make it happen. Jesse defends the other side of the goal and leaves that side slightly open. Inevitably, Villa goes right at that open spot and Jesse cannot get there in time. You not only have to put the wall in the right place, you have to put the right people in the right spots. That wall was amateurish. There is no debate. It was bad. I fully understand the role the keeper plays and what a wall is supposed to be.

    Hopefully our goalkeeper coach has much to guide him on after that.

    Eric Wynalda, who was in the booth with Mark Followill for the FS1 broadcast, was channeling Twellman pretty convincingly after the collision.

    Clearly I need to read up on Twellman. I'm new to following pro soccer.

    Twellman's career was ended by successive concussions and he has become a leading advocate for better in game protocols and policies. The fact that Kellyn walked off field and directly to the center stripe without being looked at is something that would set Twellman off.

    Wynalda retired from international soccer with 34 goals in 106 appearances - a record that he said he fully believed that Twellman would beat. Taylor Twellman ended up retiring with 6 goals in 30 games, struggling both with the pace of the international game and a series of concussions. Landon Donovan eventually broke the record a few years after Wynalda backed Twellman to succeed him.
