Not many good options but I would have guessed ITS is our second best option, maybe he's still working his way back though so Ronny didn't consider him. I'm surprised he didn't say Ring just to be extra stubborn and double down on his position that Ring can play anywhere.in taty's preview for this game, he discussed some things in response to questions.
first - he said the team was told by Ronny that the system was built around heber. if true, this seems to contradict Ronny's statement that he would love to play heber and taty together.
second - he feels a bit hard done by refs but he's not going to think about it. just going to play how he plays and keep fighting.
i hope with heber unfortunately out, taty can step up and shine like he did last year. My worry is that without maxi or help from mitri & isi on the front line with him, he will be as isolated as heber was and will be unable to do what we all know he can do.
in ronny's preview, when asked who would be taty's backup if he were to get injured or had to come off, ronny's response was medina or mitri or gary.
We assumed FCC were going to bunker the last time, but they did the opposite and went on full attack against us. We struggled against their press at times too.I'm just going to lean into pessimism here and say we're likely to get a 0-0 or possibly a 0-1 loss here.
We can't seem to score to save our lives, and Cincy is going to bunker hard and counter while our fullbacks are all the way up.
Now that I've put that out there, here's hoping instant karma gets me and we blow them out 4-0.
