  1. CJ still scoring CJ goals
    .
    With all the tall trees we have at the moment it still surprises me that we haven’t had more head goals (not scored by Fafa or Fabian or Accam) – Elliot’s goal on Sunday notwithstanding
    .
    Heading is an absolute skill and the intuition to know where the ball will be and how to go get it always impresses me

  2. The fight for the Eastern Conference Title is looking very tough when you see who we have left to play. The quality of teams remaining, overall, is brutal. The only saving grace is that apparently many of our opponents have midweek games prior to playing us. But even still, I don’t expect us to hold onto the top spot with this schedule remaining.

  3. i don’t regret calling de Boer a tone-deaf d-bag.
