    Very annoyed with myself that I forgot about this match. Reserve team matches are great where you can sit about two feet away from the field!

  2. Where was the match held?

    • The kid is 18 yrs old. Its okay to have him play a different position. Its one thing to criticize something that needs to be criticized (i.e., the poor team performance etc…) its another thing to nit pick especially when they are simply teaching a young B team player a new position.

  3. It seems like a fan-friendly event. Is that true? Do you think if I brought a group of kids they would have good enough view of the field and opportunities to meet players afterwards?

  4. Is it normal to have so many supposed first-team regulars (Torres, Martinez, Amobi, etc) playing in a reserves game? I, for one, am somewhat troubled that the guy we supposedly gave up LeToux to re-sign was playing in a reserves match, got injured and is now missing “real” games when our team has ONE FEAKING POINT out of 4 games.
