ok explain to me why did they take out jovan since he was doing us some good and not ruiz???
Your coach is terrible. Firing Sigi has to go down as the worst move ever by a GM. I'm not trying to troll, but honestly, that game was pathetic. Zero class on the pitch, b o r i n g.... I'm fairly sure that Moreno wasn't a good idea as a winger.
I've been willing to give Sampson a chance into next season, but watching him use Herzog minimally or, worse yet, leave him on the bench altogether is prompting me to change my mind.
Because Sampson is an idiot. Sticking with Victorine is insane.
Worst move that Sampson made was moving Broome to left back. When Paul came on, he immediately caused trouble on the left, and he got tge cross off that Kirovski damn near put in. Why bring in a fresh defender when u'r down 1-0? When Sasha moved up to left wing, Paul got his yellow, and our production on the left went from poor to almost non-existent
Not only did he take out Jovan but Whoopi to boot. Moreno should have been gone along with Victorine. Broome and Jones could have combined nicely on the left and fed Kiro some balls.
Herzog injured himself in training on Wednesday and did not travel because of the injury. I would have brought Gordon on for Ruiz who was a complete disaster.
MissingMathis, I felt our left side was non-productive before the sub of Paul Broome. Putting Broome in pushed up the left and produce a little something, but that yellow card on Broome was bone-headed.
Cobi for Whoopi was a good sub. Whoopi wasn't doing much except for running into the D and getting dispossessed. That and not receiving passes on time. Cobi provided a spark that kept us attacking.
Gordon for Kiro was horrible. Ruiz should've been subbed because he wasn't doing jack squat!
There is no excuse for this kidn of coaching. I mean Sampson actually thinks that its a good idea to have Victorine as a defender and Moreno as a midfielder.
There was nothing wrong with Broome. He's prolly been our most consistent defender besides maybe Marshall (Albright is good attacking down the wings and tracking down air balls, but he lets his mark go far too much) and instead, he decides to put "Mr. Utility" (my ass) in at left back? What a joke. Joe also shouldn't have started, as he is much more dangerous up top and in the last third of the game when the defence is tired...furthermore...******** Joe Cannon...that stupid French Ligue 1 reject!
Well thats our Stevo, take our your most consistant offensive threat in the game out and put in an untested rookie. I guess this is Steve's offensive system at work. That has got to be one of the worst in game adjustments I have ever seen. Ruiz was godawful throughout. It was clear who needed to be subbed.
Positive things to say about Steve:
Cobi for Joseph- Good move. Joseph showed in this game he does not make a good winger and was consistantly out of position......usually too far upfield to recieve a ball and attack effectively up the flank.
Broome at left back- Another good move. I have said this time and time again SASHA IS NOT A DEFENDER, nor should he be played there. Both Sigi and Steve are guilty of, for whatever reason, being way to fond of Victorine. Putting Broome in almost instantly made the distribution out of the left back third much more effective. Now if Steve can get it through his head not to start Sasha there then we wouldnt have to waste a substituion to make that adjustment once it becomes clear that Sasha is once again completely ineffective at this position.
