Hello darkness, my old friend … I’ve come to talk to you again.
The last few weeks with the New England Revolution, we’ve seen some great performances -- and we’ve seen some rubbish -- on the defensive end of the football. Against Los Angeles, a wonderful performance by The Boys In Blue spoiled by those -- and I’m sorry for bringing up these bad memories again -- two lackadaisical “defending” moves by Claude Dielna.
Against Minnesota United on Wednesday evening, a poor header by Jalil Anibaba five minutes in leads to a goal. And just before the half, poor defending -- starting with Wilfried Zahibo’s (seriously, put the rotten fruit down; didn’t you ever learn not to shoot the messenger?) poor reaction -- leads to the Loons' second, and the Revs are playing on the back foot for the final 45.
