In the Philly match, I thought we played pretty decently. We just didn't finish the chances we had and Johnson should have saved (and normally does), the Bedoya goal.Did we really play bad in the group round? I have to confess (feel like a bad fan) but this was the first match of the tournament I actually sat down and watched. The two 9 AM kickoffs were no go's for me as I work and I can't remember what came up on the Tuesday night game but I couldn't watch that one either. Don't generally bother with the DVR highlights when we lose.
Orlando was a shit show. I don't think I need to say more there.
Miami wasn't good either. They aggressively pressed our back line when we tried building out of the back and man-marked the fullbacks and wingers and we had no answer for it. It's crazy that our goal came off of a Mitrita through-ball (he never does this) to an Ismael Tajouri-Shradi off-ball run (he never does this). Once Parks and then Maxi were on, we looked incredibly much better (shocker).
In fact, there hasn't been many minutes when Maxi has been on the field and we haven't looked great.
