The way they defend? No way.
That's our veteran central defender with the brain dead play to give away the penalty.
It's not on fire, not quite an accurate picture.
Should have been Captain. He didn't do that stuff last year.
Glad just made the bonehead pass. God.
We really might not make the playoffs. We're truly terrible in most positions.
What has happened the to the back 4?
Honestly, has anyone ever explained offsides to Julio…
Why wait so long to make the last subs?
Anyone else hear Josh Clark mention that maybe Pablo can't coach a more talented team? It was a different idea, don't know if there's much to it, but seems plausible?
Well this game has sucked. Why did they have to give me hope at the end of the half?
At this point Luna needs to start in the middle of the field. Don't care it is still in this be 4-4-2.
Not sure what to do about the back 4 though. Nobody is showing they deserve to start. I imagine it'll be Brody and Eneli on the outside on Saturday though.
Pablo out; pretty please with a cherry on top
Eneli has played ell imo.
It's clear that without Ruiz we can't play the 4-4-2 like Pablo wants. It also seems to be clear he thinks our players are too dumb to be able to play anything else. So it feels like we're going to back into a playoff spot again (if at all)
That was a poor choice of night activities
This team has made my son hate soccer. Not for it
Do something, Pablo
This postgame conference inspires zero confidence in anything changing
to summarize, Pablo believes the players are training very well during the week. He’s in charge and impacts things during the week. He then says the game is dictated by the players. Claims soccer has the least impact from a coach during the course of the game. The players are not performing
I have a massive problem with this mentality
Pablo has decided this more or less isn’t his problem or at best it’s something the players have to fix far more than he does
Zero discussion of changing anything tactically or in shape
OK, confession time. Season ticket holder for 4 years pre-Covid, but this is the first game I have attended in-person in several years.
I am very disappointed with what I am seeing. Watching games via Apple TV, it is easy to miss the sloppy passing and the apparent lack of effort that seems to be pervasive when you witness the games "in situ".
I do not consider myself a fair weather fan, per se, but if the team loses at least do it while playing attractive soccer and act like you care.
At this point, I am losing interest in MLS. The money virus has become firmly entrenched and there are definite have and have-not clubs and I don't see that changing. What LA started with Beckham, Miami have put the nail in the coffin with Messi. I see no way for small market teams to remain competitive and at least keep the illusion of success alive against the wealthy teams that now exist.
Perhaps I can sleep off my disillusionment and I will have a more even keeled response tomorrow. Or maybe not...
The best team in the league is from Cincinnati
Are you just looking at the standings or is that your opinion of the current rosters of all the teams?
The standings are what get you trophies….
They’re also a damn good team. Miami is certainly in a run of form, but they’re also 28 points from 27 games.
I was in the post game interviews, for only the second time, and did have some great questions to ask on the drive home. My apologies. I'll do better next time.
Being in the room it looked like Pablo was close to tears. May be over reacting but he looked ready to come apart a bit. Felt for him a little.
The question I should have asked was if it was time for tweaks, changes, big or small or is it just getting the team back to a better mentality?
We all know the answer.
Nothing will change.
If the coach in soccer has less to do to impact the play during the game than in most other sports perhaps we should expect more during the week? These guys didn't look prepared at all in the second half and folded like an amateur at the world series of poker.
I wouldn’t blame you guys
Some of the questions were very pointed and necessary
Pablo, to me, is showing that he lacks the confidence/arrogance needed to coach at this level. He has an assistant coach mentality through and through. In good times it comes off great, but in bad times it comes off as lost. He is self aware of that too. I don’t envy his job, but it wasn’t like he didn’t know what it entailed either
