From the Supporters Section, I saw Maxi grab the ball and start walking away from the box. It got me all excited that he was going to hand it to someone else. I hoped it would be Isi, or maybe Mitri. But then it was Medina, and then I got all worried again.
if medina is out to prove a point, then i'm all for it. i'll take any reason any player on the squad has to show their best effort and potential. bring it on. there's no better time than this final stretch and playoffs to show that kind of grit and determination.From the Supporters Section, I saw Maxi grab the ball and start walking away from the box.

But a very well taken penalty by Medina, so kudos to him. And he did also take a very good one against Orlando in the USOC, so perhaps that factored in a bit.
just a note... Tyler Miller is LAFC keeper. Matt Turner is the Revs keeper.Two other thoughts:
- That Taty shot in the first half on the full volley was pure gold. Tyler Miller had one hell of a save on that to deny the golazo.
- GMS has been disappointing. I wrote quite a bit about his off-ball movement being brilliant, and I still think that. He had several great runs yesterday to spark what should have resulted in great chances and he flubbed them either with a bad pass, bad decision, or being forced off the ball. I'm still hopeful for him as his movement is great and he can really strike the ball well, but I'm a bit less optimistic than I was after his first start.
Oops. Edited my post above now to reflect the correct keepers.just a note... Tyler Miller is LAFC keeper. Matt Turner is the Revs keeper.
agree with your points though. taty is probably the only brave one to take those 1 time shots yesterday. no one else had the balls to give it a try and ended up giving up their opportunity trying to set up a perfect shot.
Well - I got it on social media and spoke with Brad Sims about it (wanted to tell Claudio directly, but missed that opportunity). Let's see if NYCFC does anything about it. Or MLS.Ok, double checked my chart. It's 100% accurate when it comes to Maxi. You're correct the the only way he's suspended is if they don't count his appearance subbing in against Houston. Otherwise, he should be clear to play vs Toronto.

I've had questions that are finally being answered.#domequotes
“I’m very happy, especially for Jesus,” Torrent said. “In the training session he convinced me. I don’t choose the players because this is a blond player or this is a funny player – it’s about the performance in the facility.”
I think Gaz will break out when the weather gets colder, just like a proper Scot.IT took Mitri awhile but he's looking pretty good now. Hopefully GMS will follow suit.
Stupid thing to care about but I hate it when teams wear change strips at home. Feels like a desperate marketing plea.
