    Get to Know Sean Johnson

    This is a good interview. Sean is well spoken.

    What NYC fans will find most interesting is that Sean actually played as a striker all the way through high school and was even recruited by his college to be a striker before deciding to be a goal keeper. Hopefully that means that he has better than average skills at his feet.

    After listening to this interview I have a lot more confidence in this move. Sean seems pretty tuned in. I think this will work out for us.

    That could also be the reason he was moved from striker to GK.... [I kid, I kid]

    Possibly, but last minute call-ins are usually by players the coach has a history with or are in the same city so travel is null. Arena's LA connection is the driver with this

    Sean Johnson has to prove he is an elite MLS keeper before he gets considered again. If Johnson wins our keeper position, he will have a great opportunity to showcase that he is more than just a shotstopper. If he doesn't do well with us, his NT shot is done.

    We would have just wasted on a boatload of GAM when we have Eirik Johansen.

    Mr. Playoffs 3.5 GAA.

    Which is unfair, but he also has no accomplishments to counter it. So let he and Johnson compete.

    When you change your tactics and lineup in the playoffs, it's clearly not fair.

    1 GAA in the regular season.

    You're embarrassing yourself and borderline insulting. At least I had the sense to acknowledge a 2 game sample was unfair. Citing 1 game against a team with nothing to play for is less than a joke.

    Eh. Lurch ending up as our star goalkeeper would be a fairy tale but much insight can be gained from looking at the performances and not just the numbers. He doesn't get down or across quickly enough on shots and is timid on crosses.

    IOW, it was the nature of the goals conceded and not the number of them that leaves me unconvinced.

    Preseason and he already looks like a massive upgrade over Saunders
