I don't know why it is strange to point out that we're trying to achieve something similar.

2 months is not that much time. Look at how long the core of SKC and RSL have been together.

Ah. I seem to have missed that.

And given that we've seen everyone in this starting XI play very well last year, I think under-performing is a fair guess.

This is the kind of reasonable point you should be making.

I wanted Piq & Zakuani.

The thing is that our team hasn't really hit its stride.

Maybe this season is the opposite day version of last year.

Powell is 19, right?

I don't view Futty as an improvement over Paparatto.

Porter is still the same coach that led the team to #1 in the West last season when most had us barely in the playoffs.

That was lack of understanding with Nagbe.

Whoa there. Them's fighting words around these parts.

I think it's pretty reasonable to ask you to chill when you're saying things like Porter and Powell shouldn't be part of the team.

Bad choice.

But when you need a goal and it's not working, you need to have a plan B.

I'm okay with that. It's important for him to make defenders hesitant to play with a high line to deny Nagbe/Valeri space.
Commented on Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA Match Thread [7:30] on Apr 13 2014, 12:56a
I don't think anyone was confused about who you meant. Lol

Agree that was a bad call. If we're going to just hoof it into the box and whip it in from the flanks, we needed Piquionne and Zakuani.

Except screenshots above show he wasn't offside for all of them.

Not sure if they'd have exposed Jewsbury's pace, but I think we could've won if he had played instead of Powell.

I love how only a week ago everyone was crying about how Porter brought on Zemanski instead of Zakuani or Fernandez.

Jewsbury at least knows when he got beat.
Commented on Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA Match Thread [7:30] on Apr 13 2014, 12:47a
But he looked on for a couple of those.
Commented on Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA Match Thread [7:30] on Apr 13 2014, 12:46a
I thought Powell let his man go free way too often.
Commented on Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA Match Thread [7:30] on Apr 13 2014, 12:41a
Fernandez went in the middle and Valeri moved right.

Really unimpressed by Powell and Kah tonight.

But it's surely our backline that needs improvement, not our midfield.

I just don't think that Urruti and Fernandez are different enough for us to use them equally.
Commented on The Blame Game on Apr 11 2014, 8:38p - 1 reply
Twellman made a tweet about the published salaries being misleading. I assume that means DPs make more than listed.
Commented on 2014 Timbers Salary Cap: An In Depth Analysis of the League's Salary Numbers on Apr 11 2014, 6:53p - 2 replies
But what has Urruti done significantly better than Fernandez other than his pressing?
Commented on The Blame Game on Apr 11 2014, 6:50p - 1 reply
I think intelligence is probably way more important than speed for pressing effectively.

Does anyone else feel a lot less confident now that the MLS website picked us to win unanimously?

Yeah, I realized the score is worth 2 and edited accordingly.

Given that our former players love scoring on us, I'm convinced AJB will get one from a set piece.

Right. Obviously no one has, but anyone who did would get a big advantage.

Yes, but not pressing and giving up on plays is purely about effort.

I've been very surprised at how little Fernandez has offered defensively so far.

Well, that's skewed heavily when two strikers are more than half of your payroll.

Yes, exactly. We're obviously not trying to set our team up like Seattle, so that comparison isn't interesting to me.

Soccer is probably the only industry in the world where Americans get paid way less than their peers.

Kevin, any chance you could do an addendum to break down how SKC and RSL are set up?

Lol. I can't imagine how anyone would possibly think Will Johnson is a forward.

I think most MLS sides would be somewhere between the English Championship and the bottom half of Premier League.

120k is honestly not that much money for a player of Kalif's talent.

Or if Valeri had stepped up after the ball came in, Cooper would've been offsides.

I'm honestly more surprised he lost his spot to Urruti.

I honestly haven't seen a major stylistic difference between Fernandez, Urruti and Valeri.
Commented on The Blame Game on Apr 10 2014, 9:23p - 1 reply
My argument was always that Fernandez's performance hasn't been good enough to guarantee himself a spot in the XI.

Just noticed that Will Johnson is listed as F and Harrington and Wallace are both listed as M-D.

Given that Porter often subs in Zemanski for Valeri/Nagbe to protect a lead, it appears he disagrees.

I've personally never understood why people don't talk about their salaries more.

If you're a situational player, that means there are times when you are considered not good enough to play.

But we needed an extra body in our box, not theirs.

So what about Seattle is special?

If the team is worse with Fernandez on the pitch, it means Fernandez is not performing well enough to start.

I think that's probably a combination of his age and potential ability.

Of course you can give a hometown discount if you want. And sometimes a lower salary for a better fit is worth it.

That is precisely why I'd like to know.

I have no idea. But they're not exactly known for their transparency.

Because we've seen Gaston defend and it's not good.
