Rapids lose their first game of the preseason. It was the first match of the 2016 Desert Diamond Cup for both clubs.
What was worse, losing to a team that right now is barely more than a local YMCA team or the poor online streaming efforts that was at times 4-8 minutes behind the live action via the Rapids twitterfeed? Let’s just say both for now.
The GOOD – Dominique Badji with the only first half highlight with a header from a DIllon Powers free kick tying the score in the 19th min at 1-1.
The BAD – Defense and goal tending. 3 soft goals given up by both Froschauer(2) and McMath(1), the first coming in the first minute of play. Also bad, the lack of possession (aka turnovers)and no resemblance of any attacking football anywhere by the Rapids.
The UGLY – See this Rapids tweet below post game with Pablo.
Clearly if this was their focus on the game, “attacking the ball after a turnover” then what we all know to be true about Pablo, the head coach, that he has no clue and it’s gonna be another long season for Rapids supporters.
Here’s a thought Pablo, how about this for an idea, attacking football should be a focus. How about creating some chemistry on the field, not just on offense, but on the defensive side as well! How about not only creating and maintaining possession, but doing something with possession besides shooting balls over the top and hoping!
