Look a lot more dangerous with Lletget out there. Bring in Lewis for Baird.
I like Lewis
Lewis to Lletget. Who could of guessed?
That’s nice from Lewis.
Lewis production for club and country per minute is ridiculously good. I just pray NYCFC starts him this season.
Happy for Lletget.
Match would be like 4-0 if Lletget and Lewis started.
It was a great pass from Trapp to start it as well.
Nice ball, cheeky finish
That entire thing was good. From Steffen to the finish.
Ehhh, Lewis has a really good touch to bring it down, Trapp just punted it down the side basically.
Lletget gets to go smash a power ranger now
Much better 2nd half.
Had a feeling Arriola would look good in this system. Didn’t predict him being stuck on the left for most of the match though. Won’t be a starter but a solid depth piece.
Even though he plays for fucking DC United, I love Arriola.
That injury was such a punch to the nuts for him. IIRC, that night was her movie debut, then he scored his first goal with the national team, then his foot explodes.
That second half was largely splendid. A good start for Berhalter.
Have a lot of belief in what Berhalter can do with our young talent about to come up.
Honorable mention: Arriola, Long, Day 1 Djordje
Having watched again, this is grossly downplaying the pass. Lewis didn’t have to bring it down out of the air, it was put in a place that made it an easy touch.
Weah scored again today.
I like Arrec but he’s got a hard on for Trapp
Looks like he assisted on the first goal as well
Celtic fans really seem to like Weah
Since I had been bumping old posts in the transfer threads a while back thought I’d call myself out for this post that didn’t age well
That first touch hnnnnng
Noticed that too. If you go on twitter and type in "weah" there's tweets with like hundreds of responses by Celtic fans. Thought this one was funny.
That’s the first touch too many of our guys lack.
What should be the takeaway from these two games? Nothing really, solid wins, or a lot better than expected?
The results? Probably nothing. Panama B and ticos C are teams that we should be easily beating with our B teams.
However, the good things to take away:
-The team actually looks to be working towards an identity. Breaking lines with diagonal passes and working the ball into the box by overloading one wing was such a nice change from the incredibly milquetoast brand of soccer we had seen the last year and a half. (As was the more creative, 3 in the back with a high FB that should help us better play out of the back with the ball)
-Solid defensive play. We were probably simpler than we'll eventually be in the first camp, but there were minimal blown assignments by the back line, which led to neither opponent really getting many scoring chances in 2 games. (Steffen was really only called upon to make a big save once in 2 games)
-The general improvement from game to game and half to half.
The bigger litmus test will be in March when we have our top guys and play better opponents.
Hardly. He’s likable, but not very good, which leads people to give him way more credit for just hoofing it into the corner than he should get.
I don’t give 2 shits about Trapp, that was a great pass no matter whose foot it came off of. He didn’t “hoof it to the corner”. He chested it down and made a great pass.
They just spent $9.1 million on this guy and it sounds like Lewis will be odd man out in the line up. Will probably play the super sub role unfortunately.
Ream and Arriola eh?
ummmm where's the pineapple poacher??
Dead to me
That midfield wouldn’t work, not enough playmaking going forward.
I guess it could high press pretty well though, in that case give me Sargent instead of Jozy.
I wouldn't mind seeing the same guys but in a 4-4-2 diamond with Pulisic playing in the middle.
Puli just put Dortmund ahead in extra time.
Then they conceded 3 minutes later.
And just scored to take the lead
And then conceded again.
My feed went out :(
