    Welp, it sounds like he will not bear the cross of his forefathers. The kid sounds pretty evolved to me.

    That's what you call good parenting!

    In case you forgot (I know I did) Araujo is suspended for this game due to Red card from his (stupid) tackle at the last game of last season.
    Word is Da Boy made the flight to Miami, so no suspension for him at this point at least. Tick-tock.

    I forgot about Araujo. So is that the excuse if we lose?

    Predictions - I'm going to say hat trick for Chicarito and we win 5-0.

    Okay actually I'll say we're down 1-0 most of the game, Cabral comes on in the 89th for Chich and immediately scores a tying goal for a 1-1 draw.

    Wait is Cabral even available?

    Lol.
    I’m hoping for a 0-0 draw.
    At best a dirty G’s 1-0 decision with a goal from da boy.

    ....and here I was hoping for a draw on the road.

    This team is light years ahead of last year's team.
    Vanney is a coach.....the G's finally have a coach that can coach.

    Brilliant substitutions and strategy to turn the game around.

    High marks:
    Bond
    Chicha
    Zubak
    Depuy
    Vasquez

    MOTM: Cichaaaaaaaaaaaa! With the brace!
    Who knew having a helper for Chicha would allow him to poach?!! Everyone except GBS. That change with Zubak did wonders.

    Needs work:
    Grandensir - Looked out of shape...saw some potential though.
    Sebs - Didn't do much on wing.
    Jona - Gave the ball away a lot.....Dunno if Miami's plan was to swarm him or not, but he looked out of sorts for the match.


    ...and to think we were still 2 players shy of the starting 11 with Araujo and Cabral not in the lineup.


    Gutsy come back win on the road in the miserable Miami weather.

    G's up!!!

    What is the story on Cabral playing? I can't seem to find any info.

    Might have taken to halftime, but they actually figured out long balls in to Chich over and over doesn't work.

    Defense still suspect to me (Miami might suck just a bit more than we do). But baby steps....

    Bond - I mean we're comparing him to David Bingham, but thought he was positionally good and seemed to have a good sense of direction.

    Cabral maybe for 3rd match of season, but more than likely the 4th match. (According to Vanney)
    From what I heard he's getting visa and should be here late this week, early next, then COVID quarantine protocols.

    Hattrick for Javier.....what more can you say??!?!?! 5 goals in 2 games!!!

    Gotta say it's great having a coach on the sideline that knows how to coach, and actually is tactically aware.
    Vanney is using his players to play to their strengths. Remarkable, really.

    I think we know the good stuff, so I'll skip and go straight to the bad/needs improvement:

    The defense.....I know RBNY plays the press to make the D make mistakes, but our back line is still sketchy at best. - Worried about Seattle and LAFC
    Aruajo had a poor game. Need more from him.
    Jona still did not look anywhere near his best.
    Saldana plays like a first time MLS kid.


    Bring on Cabral, and Williams.....let's see how this roster really plays when everyone is on the pitch.

    Top of the league feels good!
