forgive my ignorance - what does FOBS mean in this instance...This is the first thing to make me smile about NYCFC since the game.
I really wish I got 2 messenger bags. I can't believe not one person in the office looked at the backpack and said "Um, do you think maybe 10 logofobs is a bit much?"
makes sense now. i got one of those backpacks. horrible quality as well. messenger bags aren't much better.
which they charge you a $25 “shipping fee” for. Where’s my opt on on that one?makes sense now. i got one of those backpacks. horrible quality as well. messenger bags aren't much better.
can't wait for the 2020 STH altoids tin with just our ticket card and a #makeItHere pin.
I went back to watch this and it was pretty much as you describe. Mitrita was fouled and simultaneously played the ball to Matarrita who was in an offside position. The TV viewpoint does not confirm what the ref signaled because he is not visible and the announcer does not say he played advantage. In fact the announcer seems a bit confused that the ref failed to call either of 2 potential fouls (that one and one moments earlier on Taty). But I remain pretty certain I saw the ref signal advantage live. If so, the advantage was instantaneously nullified and I think we should have had a free kick. Another possibility is the ref decided the offside pass preceded the foul which would nullify the foul, but that seems even more wrong given the timing of things.There was one play in the second half that I want to go back and look at around the 59'. I don't want to go full tilt into an opinion on it yet, because my angle wasn't the best, and I haven't seen the replay, but...
Mitrita I thought was fouled from behind on a decent break-away (not in on goa per-se, but things were looking to lead to a decent chance), that I thought would result in a yellow card and if I'm remembering correctly, I thought the ref motioned advantage, but then the ball went forward and to the feet of one of our attackers in an offsides position. And instead of bringing the ball back to where the foul was committed and issuing a yellow, he awarded TFC a free kick for the offsides.
Does anyone remember this or have a better understanding of what happened here? I do want to rewatch before I decide to get upset about it (though I didn't have that patience last night at the game), but it seemed to me like it was a pretty egregious decision.
I think it's because we didn't really control the ball for long stretches of the match. We generally bring Tinny into the game by drawing the opposition defense to the left side with the ball and then ditching it wide. If we can't do that, he's not generally the kinda guy to beat a man on the dribble himself or even orchestrate a passing combination himself to beat a path forward.I haven't gone back to watch either, but one question I have is why Tinnerholm was shut down as a creative attacking force.
Yeah I was thinking about adding something about this to my last post but I thought it would be condescending.There were a couple times in the first half when we attacked up the left side and then put a beautiful ball into space on the right side near the box, but neither Tinnerholm, nor Isi were anywhere to be found.
YMMV, but I tell myself that the skills I develop to cope with these unexplainable and crushing acts of self sabotage will prepare me to better deal with the capricious nature of our existence.I too, can't watch footage from the game or else the feeling of sickness I had when I saw Mata lunge into the tackle will be back. However I keep on replaying his and Chanot's fuckups when my brain isn't occupied with something else and I get mad all over again.
Seriously what the fuck?
