    I think it’s also important to note the difference in quality between us and Copenhagen. As of right now they are in first in the Danish league and were in the Europa League. Meanwhile what have we done?

    Well, there wasn't "Parks" on the back of his shirt but "Keaton", so...

    Glad I didn't get up I guess. Thanks for all the reports. Highlight was FootyLovinFootyLovin jinxing himself and reporting it in his usual good cheer. One question: AnnagramAnnagram says Ring wore the Captain's armband, but JLa on Twitter (she is/was a Third Rail fixture/officer/volunteer) said Chanot did. Were they on at different times?

    So you're saying Medina didn't look like a DP, even a rusty DP? There obviously wouldn't be much cohesion in the first preseason match, but one would think and hope that individual talent would at least shine, albeit appearing disjointed with the flow of the teammates. None of that from Jesus?

    Yeah, total roster switch at the half. Ring captained the first half and Chanot the second.

    In fairness he was playing in a position that he has none of the required qualities for.

    Medina is not a bad player, far from it, he's just physically too weak to play in a striker role. At the moment the team's shape is such that Medina's strengths (sic!) aren't used well enough.

    Does anyone know if there is any place to rewatch the game?

    Being weak is a poor excuse (not from you, from him) - he had an entire offseason to work on strength training to get tougher to fend off challenges. We saw Harrison come back in year two looking bulked up and it helped him immensely. New drinking game will be wverytime he gets muscled off the ball.

    I thought Taty did better but both of them suffered from a lack of attacking creativity in the midfield. A true 10 like Maxi helps. Would have also liked to see more fluidity up front but you can't really do that playing 3 6/8s in the midfield.

    I don’t think that’s how genetics work.

    Ever seen Maxi scrum and fight off tackles? No excuse for Medina.

    Maxi is also 31. Sometimes it takes these kinds of experiences and learning from them to change your game. In this case it would be Medina learning to trap the ball better.

    If 31 is the argument, then don’t sign him as a youth DP. Players that age are fully capable of learning to trap and fend off.

    Seeing Medina and Taty being shifted to striker after a season (Medina) and a half (Taty) further shows that Lewis has been robbed of game time to improve and help this team. I pray after these national team showings that he can become a regular. I’m afraid Lewis put himself in a good situation however to have suitors if NYCFC choose not to play him. The coaching staff will have some tough decisions to make.
