It is Nelson Gonzalez TIME!!!
This would be a bigger issue if our defense wasn't so solid. At our current pace
we will allow 8.5 goals this season, so as long as we can score at least one
goal a game we should come away with points. One bright side to this is that
Espindola is back on the pitch.
IF Morales and Paulo are going to be out for lengthy injuries, why can't they
call up someone for a short term stint?
If we only allow 8.5 goals this season--I wonder which game will only have half
a goal, that will be a feat to see--and the continued lack of offense we will
end up with so many ties, that RSL will be sunk into third or fourth or lower in
the conference and certainly not progress in the playoffs. Jason Kreis needs to
use some of his coaching skills and figure out a way to play better offense even
if it results in a few more goals scored. In my opinion our defenders need to
do better at distrubuting and to do that need to be a little higher up the pitch
and Beckerman needs to play a bit higher up as well to fill the vacancy left by
the Morales injury. RSL needs to risk a bit or it will end up losing it all.
No big deal RSL will find a way to get results during the gold cup. I still
think we're the heavy favorites to win the supporters shield.
Also MLS.com is reporting that RSL just released Chinn and signed Aghasyan, who
played for RSL a while ago (2009) and is actually the cousin of former striker
Movsisyan. Kreis is thinking he might be ready for the Seattle game. It would
be interesting to see him inserted so quickly, but the lineup and style of play
is basically the same as it was back then.
