  • Ok ,
    I guess I should have been worried about dc after all. I didn't realize DC wanted to and that the Fire played like they could care less. Also I forgot that Soumare sucks.

  • Nice save by Amerikwa in the 83rd minute :(

  • Once again, Klopas fails to have the team ready for a big game. This happened at the final game of last year and now tonight. It may be time to find a coach that can mentally prepare a team for an important game.

  • I have never seen a coach as clueless as Klopas was tonite. Had no response to DC clogging of the backline.

  • In reply to FireRog:

    Andrew was there to witness this stinker, let's hear what he has to say. This is his team, will he make the steps to improve the team, or is he happy with mediocrity.

  • Big let down. Out of the cup again. No difference maker added before the window closes. Will they miss the playoffs and complete the triple crown of mediocrity?

  • Anan"gol" is going to need someone to feed him the ball, else it's going to be the same $hit. No one seemed up for this game...

  • In reply to FireRog:

    ... And exiting this parking lot is as disorganized as the Fire organization. I know it's free parking, but dang it... Pay someone to control exits..

  • Can I quit on the team like how the players quit on the team as well? I love you guys, but I don't think I can take this anymore. I'm going back to European football.

  • Worst part of all this is I cut my vacation 2 days short to be at this debacle. Boy, is the wife going to be pissed off when I get home. Gonna be hearing it for the next couple of months. Also, brought two new people to the game... And then the Fire go an lay a stinker! Needles to say, they won't be buying tix anytime soon, not with this crap. My friends asked about the coach looking all defeated and clueless with subs still remaining... Had no response...Thanks for the forum Guillermo... I need to air out more, but that's it for now or I'll blow my top before I get home (no, I'm not driving).

  • Should be easy to rate the players, give them all fours, they started out well, but the longer the game went on, the worse they got.
    Completely outclassed in the second half, looked disorganized, confused, and lethargic. Actually the new guy didn't look all that bad, probably trying to understand whats going on.
    Magee was completely off his game, no one really stood out, at least as far as positives.
    A well earned and as well, a deserved loss.

  • That was really bad tonight. I think the team underestimated United tonight and they came out ready to play. DC was a different team than the last time we played them. Our new DP looked a little shaky today. At first appearance, he reminds me of a thicker Caitlin Carr. Mind and upper body were moving too fast for his legs. Wasn't sure where to go. Im hoping he was just excited to get out there and get things moving. Sean made his first blunder in a long time and looked shaky today.
