  2. OneManWolfpack says:

    Anthony and Aaron-Son – BRILLIANT work by the Union marketing folks. Awesome stuff.

  3. John P. O'Donnell Jr. says:

    Two things this week that jumped out at me.
    One Curtin commenting on McKenzie’s development. “When you talk about soccer players who play in the United States for the national teams everyone thinks that development is this steady rise and it goes perfect and that’s how everyone wants it to be. Part of development is also struggle, part of development is also suffering and not being in the team and how you deal with adversity when things don’t go well. I think so many times now in the academies across America so many kids are promised and it’s going to be so easy and they have such nice uniforms and facilities but it’s a process that doesn’t have a ton of struggle. I give Mark a ton of credit now someone who was in the starting lineup right off the bat and had a difficult preseason had an injury or two, off the field struggles with family, people stick then passing away things that should be private but you go through a lot of different variables in your development and each person responds differently but I think his response has been amazing……a lot of people won’t talk about it but it’s a huge box that’s been checked for me”.
    Second was with Ilsinho inn the lineup the team is +23 goal differential and he’s only played 900 minutes.

    • In Tanner We Trust says:

      It’s astonishing how little credit he receives league wide. He was a story after the NYRB game and no one has mentioned him since. And I look forward to a fresh McKenzie getting more playing time down the stretch.
