  1. BSFC remind me of the Union. Look the better team early, some good chances and combinations. But also missed passes and players not on the same page.

    Eventually their attacking pace slows down, the other team scores, and the game is over.

    • Honest question, should we be worried about the team and the fact that they are bottom dwelling right now too? I know the idea is a few diamonds in the rough and otherwise just game time for the Steel, but there are a bunch of Union guys there.

      • No. Im on the boat of not really caring about position. Of course I want and expect eventually BSFC to become good, but getting kids pro playing time is the #1 priority of the team.

        You see it paying dividends with Trusty and Jones (despite Curtin not realizing we could use a real 6 on the first team) and Real and McKenzie and Fontana too, so I think so far its been great.

        Plus the reality is that currently, most of the “Union” guys who are there are the ones who aren’t good enough for MLS and probably won’t ever be like Herbers and Najem. The other type of “Union Guy” on the team are the young kids.

      • I’m with James here…. Results for Steel are not important.

      • Yeah I would tend to agree. I’d like to see Loren of the games to have a feel for how some guys are coming along.

  2. “Oh sweet summer child”, I love the GOT reference

    Could you imagine walking into The Linc and seeing an Emmitt Smith jersey for sale?
    The Yankees selling a Nomar Garciaparra jersey.

    It is a disgrace. It is shameless. It is why this is an impossiblity to take seriously.
