Dust has settled, we have silverware, no CL, the manager contract is signed. It is time to look back ...

Let us start this series at the back and the men between the sticks.

Prior to the Back 3 experiment our keepers were under pressure as we conceded goal after goal. I will question why when critiquing the defence, but the fact remains that we conceded more goals than any other season of AW's reign apart from 2011.

Update On Camp Trialists

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Daniel Boniface came through with the info on the 4 trialists in camp. I was wrong in my earlier post tonight, Epstein is not one of the Academy goalkeepers. In short (see Boniface's article for the full details):

GK Cody Mizell (Charlotte, played with Atlanta and Tampa in NASL)
GK Connor Gavigan (Creighton, played in the Rapids Academy)
GK Kai Likewise (Rapids U-18 Academy team)
M Jun Marques Davidson (Charlotte, spent time in MLS with Vancouver)

The fact that we have 3 extra keepers in camp makes me wonder if there's a possible GK deal int he works for Berner or (more likely) MacMath.

The day of reckoning is at hand

Will it ever end?

Zac MacMath was sent on loan to the Colorado Rapids earlier this week. That's bad. That's so, so bad.

The move will be beneficial for Zac, who has a good chance of starting at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. But for us--those of us still trapped in Philly--this is an unmitigated disaster.
