    Taider started the season really good, I know he’s been hurt but he’s been awful lately. The team plays much better when he’s in form.

    Our passing game in the 2nd was embarrassing.

    Disappointing tie. As some of you pointed out, the plays died when they reached Orji. He was his usual greedy self and shot a lot (which I'm fine with), but he needs to play more with Shome/ZBG and combine to advance the ball forward.

    You can see Taider is not 100%, he's not quick to get on loose balls, he has little to no acceleration currently.

    They just couldn't get the ball to Nacho nearly enough. But you can see how the coverage shifted straight to him as soon as he got on the pitch. That will open a lot of space for Browne. It's good to have Piatti back though. It was a pretty cool moment when the whole stadium stood up to applaud his entrance.

    Sucks that Piette won't be there against LAFC next week, it won't be pretty without him. We'll get to see how Azira looks in his natural role.

    In my book Shome has now passed Azira on the depth chart. Same for Choinière vs. Novillo.

    Lovitz was really quiet.

    I'm not even sure it's selfishness with Orji so much as him just not ''noticing'' the opportunities at all. His awareness and smarts seem to be iffy at best, he's just happy with running fast and trying to beat people one on one.

    ATL @ NYRB at 5 pm today

    Ideally, NYRB wins. ATL is a point behind us with 3 games in hand. NYRB has 7 points fewer than us.

    We are still the team with the most away wins, at least... and we're not the Portland Timbers who played their first 11 games away so far.

    Giving him a medal of honor. An legend on and off the pick. That's how you're implicating yourself fpr your country. For the sakes of the Canadian soccer world. Douing it with the necessary actions. Not just yading (*3) and blahing (*3).

    NYRB goes down one man at the 35th minute, but scores in the 2nd half and wins the game 1-0. Perfect result for us

    All in all, the only eastern team to win this weekend is NYRB, we couldn’t have asked for better

    A frustrating one. Show them who's the boss at home. Make them a image of hell to our opponents. When they coming in Montreal. We got all the support from our fansdou. Where's the goosebumps from our players? Play hard. As the hard money spending from our pockets. To pay a part of your salary.

    The problem is injuries

    Piatti, Taider, Novillo (who was supposed to score 10 goals, right), Orji, Browne, Krolicki ( :snide: ), Cabrera, Sagna, Choinière, Bahiya.. even Piette isn't 100%

    Also. Who's the best starting XI and the best bench we could have right now? 10 people would probably use a few different formations or different players on the pitch.

    We probably still need that elite "false" 8 or #10 + an elite finisher up front. If both could be NA, that'd be nice.

    Our football dna style is injured. When it'll recovered from his indeterminate injury... Even when everyone is healthy. That's not woah entertaining. It's defensive over offensive. Just our one star player off it's over.

    Ive always tought Montreal in general is a poor team during day time games.. when ever its the impact or the canadiens.. I wasnt expecting good games at montreal until we start playing eveving games.. and specially since we are having relative success on the road we arent in a for or die position.. dont know why but you'll see. we are a lot more intimidating once the sun as set.

    Montreal itself is a poor sport teams. Her unpredictability and her luck it's their principal asset. It's a gamble with them.

    Why have Aguero when you had Arregui

    Brett had a chat with Bush and they came to the conclusion that all the games that the team conceded early in the first half was played earlier in the day. So you might be onto something. Bush said it might be because the gameday routine is screwed when they play earlier.

    The Impact is also the team that has played the most + early games of all teams, I believe
