  1. This is an article from Atlanta paper https://www.ajc.com/sports/atlanta-united-reportedly-trading-nagbe-columbus/e6YdHy4d8JfOUeQwpAOxGK/
  2. West Virginia is a team that has had their season destroyed by injuries At the beginning of the season, they played to a 0-0 tie with a very good Charlotte team. In the MAC season, they have been forced to play without their 2 best players WVA is 6-7-2 overall and is 0-3-1 in the MAC opened their season with a 1-0 OT win at Monmouth 2nd game was 1-0 OT loss at Delaware 2-1 home win over Wright State 0-0 result at home with #12 (at the time) Charlotte 5-2 home win over then #15 ranked Coastal Carolina 2-1 win OT win at Cincinnati at that point of the season, WVA was 4-1-1 (since then they have gone 2-6-1) 2-0 home loss to Dayton 4-1 win....thrashing Ohio State in Columbus 3-0 home win over Penn that is their last win of the year....they have gone 0-5-1 in their last 6 games 4-1 loss at home to then #25 ranked San Diego (useless trivia...here...San Diego head coach is the father of Aodhan Quinn) 3-1 loss on the road to then #18 ranked N. Carolina (UNC has struggled in the ACC...they are 7-7-2 overall and play Syracuse tonight in ACC tourney...if Syracuse wins, UNC will not be in the NCAA tourney) 3-1 home loss to West Virginia 4-2 home loss to Northern Illinois 3-0 loss at Bowling Green 0-0 result at SIU-E after the SIU-E game, the WVA coach had these quotes: "What a performance from our team on the road," WVU coach Marlon LeBlanc said. "We're really, really shorthanded right now, missing arguably the two best players on our team, but our guys fought tooth-and-nail and were the better team for 110 minutes tonight. It's disappointing to not get the goal that we deserved but give SIUE credit for being resilient and defending well. I thought our kids showed up tonight. The resurgence has to start somewhere – this is a good place for it to start." here is what the SIU-E coach had to say about the same game "It was a tough, good college soccer game," SIUE Head Coach Cale Wassermann said. "West Virginia is a quality team. There were some ebbs and flows. I thought we were better in the first half and they were better in the second half. It was pretty even in the overtimes.

  5. https://www.beaconjournal.com/sports/20191102/university-of-akron-mens-soccer-zips-rally-for-3-2-win-over-northern-illinois some excellent quotes from David Egbo in article “It was unbelievable,” Zips coach Jared Embick said. “There were a lot of guts shown. It was trending toward one of those ‘same old story’ where we missed some chances and got scored on in the few chances we give up. “We’ve been talking about this for weeks in dealing with adversity. We knew we could continue to overcome these situations if we play our style. Even if it’s not always what you want as a coach to go down, this is what we needed. We needed to come through. It was an awesome, awesome feeling at the end.”
  6. could be a season changing 10 minutes.... this should really give the team a great deal of belief in each other....on what they can accomplish under severe adversity.
  7. really nice to see Carlo back in the lineup and great to get David and Sammy back from yellow card accumulation

  9. https://mlsmultiplex.com/2019/11/01/toronto-fc-vs-atlanta-united-3-things-learned-richie-laryea-x-factor/3/ In my preview of this match, I suggested Richie Laryea should have started on the right-wing in place of Tsubasa Endoh considering the former’s qualities on both sides of the ball. Even though Laryea did not start, he replaced Endoh at half-time, and his performance gave Greg Vanney plenty to ponder ahead of the MLS Cup. Laryea was also solid from a defensive standpoint. He always made sure to track back and provide cover on right flank during defensive transitions, defended the back-post well even though he does not usually excel in the air and put his body on the line when cutting out Ezequiel Barco’s pass to Josef Martinez in stoppage time.
  10. Thank you, Seniors I hope that Skye is healthy enough to get some minutes

He did that by using two quick subs to start the second half, bringing on defender Richie Laryea for winger Tsubasa Endoh, and the aforementioned DeLeon for Nicolas Benezet, who was playing a more attacking role at the time. Both Laryea and DeLeon were incredible for the Reds down the stretch, especially defensively,
  13. All MAC games are super important so I will get this topic started early. Every game will be a challenge for this group of Zips. Northern Illinois has scored 7 goals in their last 2 MAC games so they can put some balls into the goal. The Zips goal keeper will have to be in top form and the Zips will need to score more than one goal for a "W" The Northern Illinois Huskies are 7-7-1 and they are 2-1 in the MAC you will see that they started their year with an 0-4-1 record..... that means that they are 7-3 in their last 10 games started their year with a 2-1 loss at DePaul 2nd game was 1-0 loss at Loyola Chicago 1-1 home tie with Wisconsin-Green Bay 2-1 loss at Dayton 3-1 loss at Marquette 2-1 home win over Bradley 3-1 win on the road vs. Purdue Fort Wayne 1-0 win at home in OT over Milwaukee 2-1 win in OT at Western Illinois 2-1 loss at Illinois Chicago (UIC is good ...with their best player being Jesus "Chino" Perez 5-0 home loss to St. Mary's CA (St. Marys is 12-1 and ranked in the top 10 in the nation) 5-1 home win over Eastern Illinois 2-1 home loss to SIU-Edwardsville 4-2 win on the road at West Virginia 3-2 home win over Western Michigan
  14. Darlington Nagbe and Atlanta United tonight vs. Richie Laryea and Toronto FC https://torontosun.com/sports/soccer/mls/buffery-torontos-richie-laryea-rises-from-the-ashes-to-become-key-player-for-reds
  15. Jared's message is definitely "immaturity"
  16. looks Like Steve Parker's last year ...was a losing year 9-10 in 1992 other less than sterling years 96 9-9-1 2000 7-7-3 79 7-7-2 1965 4-7-0
  17. David Egbo and Sammy Tojaga are not in the lineup due to getting their 5th yellow in the last game I have no idea why Carlo is not in the starting lineup
