  1. Takes guts to raise ticket prices to watch this slop.

  2. So this “Own Goal” guy just scored in back to back games for DC (both 1-0 wins). Wonder if we could borrow him for a bit.

  3. Hate to say it, but at this point I’m rooting for last place, which is not impossible. No more BS like if a few things broke our way and the regular BS coach-speak. You are what you are! It’s time for the SOB to send a message Saturday night.

    • You may get your wish, Revs are 1 pt behind with 2 games in hand, and DC is only 5 pts back with a revamped roster. Orlando might be fighting us for the last spot, but even they still have a game in hand.

  4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to Manchester United, 1 year deal agreed, will wear #10

  5. Evan Villella’s got a good piece on why to watch the Steel finish out the season. https://www.brotherlygame.com/2017/8/24/16195102/check-out-bethlehem-steel-fc
