Is it the field?  There’s been so many passes under hit by us and I just assumed it was nerves.  Didn’t think about it being the surface 

The field is awful.  it is grass laid over field turf.  it never works.

It’s checking up because the grass is dry.

The ball movement, with everything short and slow, reminds me of Wet & Bumpy.

Weight and accuracy has been poor on way too many of the passes. Busio pissing me off hitting short easy passes off-target and too slow. Hoppe and Acosta seem like the only ones up to this.

Williamson for Busio and Zardes for Dike would be my first two subs early in second half.

Sooner rather than later please, maybe even at half

I quasi watched as we are out of town and watching on my phone without sound until final 10.

Possession is fine but there's nothing in the final 3rd that looks organized at all. Losing almost every 50/50 ball in the air. Wtf is Lletget taking corners? Just wasted opportunities there.  Dike just a non factor. I'm fine with him doing that if he puts the ball in the back of the net a couple times. But that's not happening.

Frustrating to watch. At least it was a good lineup to start.

Love Busio but it looks like he isn’t quite ready for this level

was saying this to a buddy before the game...he needs to play in a more physical league and mature.  His skill is obvious but it should take more to crack our roster now.

I'm trying to figure Dike out...perhaps he needs a more compact game as he shines in traffic.  Doesn't have the ball skills for these wide open games.

He looked good in England in a more direct system with terrible refs.

It's not that bad.

It's just not that good.

We're learning a lot at least.

Hoppe, Robinson, Acosta, Turner ++

Busio, Dike --

Busio may just not be ready.  Dike's going to stick around just because we don't have depth, but he's done nothing to make my worries about him go away.

Qatar is beating either team about 6-rip

They might win but they aren’t going to shut anybody out. 

I’m watching on an iPad with no sound so apologies if they covered it but why is Leon Bailey not playing? I can’t find anything online

I thing I've seen enough to give Sargent the edge, and I'm no Sargent apologist.

It's a terrible stadium too.

Was just about to say this. If we win it won't surprise me if Qatar rips us a new one

Apparently he has a toe injury hasn't trained the last few days but might be available off the bench

Hipple throwing out those CR7 stepovers at least made me feel something for a moment.

That run said it al. Lletget needed to keep looking down at the ball while running with no one around him. My 14 year old has way better ball awareness.

Then Hoppe on the other side of the spectrum just trying stuff with the step overs.

I really don’t want to see Lletget on the field for qualifying.
