  • If no 3 today, then when?

  • At half time the Fire have a 64-36 lead in possession, a 7-1 shots taken lead, and they've completed 80% of their passes.

    And yet, it's still 1-1.

  • In reply to Guillermo Rivera:

    and now we'll be lucky to escape with a point.

    This is going to be a long season. Magee's PK a few weeks ago was not great but JLA's attempt here is Muppet's league. So disappointed in this game. Mike should have taken this one.

  • This team is walking a tightrope, playing for our hearts and minds while carefully avoiding the win.

    I'm so frustrated. I'm going to bite my sister's face off if she shows up for her kiss. Sorry sis, but it's only fair to warn you.

  • O.M.G.

    I have so much going on in my head, I can't even put a post together. I'm going to have to stew over this one for a bit so I don't get my acct deleted.

    Felt that some of the calls that went against the Fire were a bit soft and iffy, particularly one one's against Amarikwa who played another fine game. The thing that hurts most is that he would have been one of the few of the Fire players that would have buried the penalty shot.
    Was surprised Duka didn't get in the game. Another two points go slipping away, six points thrown away in the last three games.
    Only positive is that Anangono future with the club will be short.

  • Some interesting notes on the PK decision coming up in the recap. I don't think we'll see Anangono near the spot again any time soon.

  • In reply to Guillermo Rivera:

    I hope we don't see Anangono anywhere near the field any time soon. When he lined up for the penalty, I was already cringing. Unreal.

  • Two average teams playing very poorly on a nice day. The ref had a tough game, due at least in part to the poor play. Never thought the Fire were a threat coming up the left side; the ball just seemed to end up getting kicked out of bounds, oftentimes without any help from New England. Shipp made a nice pass and Amerikwa used his body well to score. Nyarko was our only other threat. The penalty kick was abysmal-at the very least hit the ball hard. Why was Anangano taking the shot? Is there some reason that he had to? He certainly wouldn't have been my first choice. I actually liked Watson's energy and think he should get some more time. Very discouraging game.

  • My family and I were by the goal on the North End when all the flurry was happening late in the game. It felt as though there were 6 or 7 shots on goal. I still can't believe none went in. It was maddening.

    Why is it the Fire, as a team, has a history of poorly taken penalty kicks? It seems it has been true for years.

    One other note, the Fire dominated the game playing with 10 men. It almost appeared they were the team with a man advantage.

    Truly a disappointing day.
