NE 3 – LAG 1By: DAS | April 2nd, 2012
I did not get to see the game this weekend. Wish I had Nathan still doing the game reviews. In any event, by all accounts it was an unimpressive showing by our boys (sans Donovan, who apparently had a slight injury).
Two questions come out of this game for me. The first is, can anyone fill Gonzalez’s shoes. The answer clearly seems to be no. The second is, just how big a problem is that for us?
Clearly the fatigue excuse doesn’t apply for this match. Nor can we claim it was really tough opposition. This was a New England team in the process of rebuilding playing us in our own home.
I’m not willing to call this disaster. It was a bad showing. But certainly we do need to worry whether the magic is gone. It is hard to imagine that the lack of Omar alone would be our undoing. But that just might be the case.
For now I remain, as always, optimistic. The back line is clearly a problem. But it’s early days yet.
How about you? Doom and gloom? Keep hope alive? Where is this season going?
