    Very true, I am more just thinking how the MLS snobs think. Guarantee you it drives Lalas up a wall anytime he hears the MLS

    English uses articles much less than French does (much less than lots of languages really). ESL speakers from those languages often add "the" in front of words where it doesn't belong.

    My comment was in jest since we never know if he’s really quite pleased or quite really pleased.

    And I have found that explaining jokes in a way that takes them seriously makes me very popular at parties.

    I was quite really hoping that video was from 2016 once I saw Khiry in the pictures. Think the club could of went over some recent shots...

    Ha. Just posted this in a game thread.

    No surprise and probably for the best.

    Question for the next game is whether Bradley will adopt the Portland strategy (bunker), the Red Bulls strategy (press), or play it straight up.

    I saw you beat me after I posted. I usually hate to repeat what someone else just posted, and always check, but I wasted at least 5 minutes trying to find a thread that doesn't seem to exist. Didn't we used to have a thread on strategy, tactics and formations, or something like that?

    I agree. A possibly more important question is whether we can play around their press for long enough to tire them out, or if we concede early and give them the opportunity to play in a deep block and get their legs back.

    I understand why he's sticking to his guns, it's a fine plan A, and we can execute much better than we did on 5/5. But there are some days where no amount of dressing-room bollocking is going to improve our decision-making. Or if we just need to weather the storm to get our heads back on, or until we can reset at half time. What then?

    I get the fixation on playing entertaining football, but predictability is not all that entertaining.

    I'm hoping it's just a ruse so other teams don't know what to do with themselves when we hit them up with a more varied attack. But I'm probably being silly.

    So I haven't read the article yet, so maybe this is covered.

    But I don't think there is any reason to change what we're doing. I would definitely approach the LAFC game with the usual tactics that we have.

    BUT, we absolutely need to install some form of Plan B to use when our gameplan isn't working or when teams change things up on us.
