You're assuming fans are looking at all the goals and judging objectively, rather than just voting for whoever is representing their team.
It's really fans best goal of the week. They won't be objective. Ideally you have someone at ESPN or something do it but they don't care about MLS. If you had MLS themselves do it, they're gonna push whoever represents the hottest team at the time or who drives clicks, because publicity is good for the league. Or at least, that's what you would think might be tempting for them to do, even if they're trying to be objective.
Totally. And after getting some background on his past, I'm a huge believer. He was at game 6 of the Blazers - Nuggets series and loving it. Hopefully he feels home here once he settles.
Atlanta definitely started out poor. 5 wins in a row has helped. But this is also the 5th game in 15 days so against the press is going to be interesting. They held out Nagbe and Parkhurst midweek so it'll be a full strength squad.That RBNY vs Atl United game is going to be interesting. Both teams were incredibly dominant last year, but this year both teams are barely treading water. I just hope Armas goes all in with the press, they need to get back to what the team is built to do. This whole deep block thing isn't working, Etienne is the only winger with the speed to pull it off and he still needs a bit of development time.
His debut was the midweek game last week, but him and White are pretty damn good. If even one of the two develop into a starter we'll be in good shape, if both do then oh boy
