  1. Who is ready to look at the starting lineup tomorrow night and feel hopelessness wash over you!? I can’t wait to see Bedoya AND Flach in the starting lineup again!

    • It is coming. WIth Kacper too. They need dynamic attacking and goal scoring… because the truth is very close to…
      …they will need 4 goals tomorrow night.
      Not 2 to preserve the tie or 3 because that’s a useless number entirely.
      Four. America will score.

      • Yeah I look forward to that bit of karma as well. I can’t wait to see our same underwhelming XI out there because “we need that veteran presence to avoid giving up a goal!” only for one of those players to give up a goal. My top three bets are 1) Bedoya getting blown past by Lainez again 2) Flach diving in again or 3) Martinex giving up the ball due to excessive, unnecessary dribbling again

  2. Also Curtin just mentioned Santos picked up a knock in training and is unsure for tomorrow. At what point do we move on because we just can’t rely on him? I think Santos has the ceiling to be our best striker and he can do things no one else on this team can do, but man he is always picking up nagging injuries. He is never able to get a good run of form going or be a consistent presence for us.
