First, the stats. Metro are 11-9-9 after tonight's match. After starting 5-1-1, that makes us 6-8-8 in our last 22 games. 6 wins in 22. Paint that however you want, that's bad. At home, we are 5-6-4, or 19 of a possible 45 points. In those 15 home games, 17 goals, 19 goals against, -2 differential. Our last 7 home games: 1-4-2, 4 goals. Met 0, KC 0 Met 1, Chi 2 Met 1, NE 2 Met 1, Clb 0 (OT) Met 0, DC 2 Met 0, Dal 0 Met 1, NE 2 That's pretty abysmal for the second half of the season. Consider that tonight's goal by Jusko broke a streak of 353 minutes of regulation without a goal at home. 353 minutes! That's nearly 6 hours of shutout offense (443 at GS if you count the Open Cup Final). Our last first half goal at home? August 24th, Woly against Chicago, a game we ended up losing 2-1. We've scored 6 goals in the first half at home all year; 6 goals in 675 minutes or one goal every 112.5 first half minutes. Yes, it's nice that we've scored 11 in the second half and OT, but for the fans showing up we've seen less home goals than any team in the league (DC is tied but has 2 home games to go, I expect them to get at least 1). Since July 20th, when were 8-4-4 and in first place, we're 3-5-5; for some reason following the win in Dallas (the Woly OT Moon-Winner) our offense stopped, we've only scored 2 goals in a game twice since then. We haven't scored 3 goals in a game since July 12th. In those 13 games, we've scored 12 goals. I don't know how we got the "prevent offense", but it's killing us. We're 2 DC wins away from finishing 4th if we lose next week. I don't think the question for the forwards is who do we get, it's who do we keep? We havbe 6 listed forwards (though Clint sometimes plays as a mid): Mathis Jusko Moreno Magee Woly Nugent Of those...maybe Woly and Magee next year? We need 4 new guys.
