Messed up but that’s pretty much what it came down to tonight. With Garcon, Lichtensteiger and RGIII re-injuring themselves before half time, it just wasn’t meant to be. Despite it all, the boys gave a great account of themselves. Cousins should’ve taken over in the 2nd but they can hold their head up high. With experience, RGIII will figure out how to take better care of himself throughout the course of a season and adjust his game accordingly. Next year, boys. Next year.

Pretty great year for music if you ask me. I figured I’d just list the album title and post my favorite track directly underneath. It was hard to keep it to only 10, but I figured these particular albums best represented my year as a whole. Definitely looking forward to hearing everyone else’s Top 10’s as I’m sure there are tons of gems I’ve criminally slept on.
1. Alabama Shakes - Boys & Girls Track: I Ain’t The Same
2. Jens Lekman - I Know What Love Isn’t Track: I Know What Love Isn’t
3. Justin Townes Earle - Nothing’s Going to Change The Way You Feel About Me Now. Track: Memphis In The Rain
4. DIIV - Ooshin Track: How Long Have You Known
5. American Aquarium - Burn. Flicker. Die. Track: Hurricane
6. And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Lost Songs Track: Up To Infinity
7. The White Buffalo - Once Upon A Time In The West Track: BB Guns and Dirtbikes
the mentality is just not right at the club. Last season we lost to many a bottom table and relegation sides but it always seemed as though we underestimated the opposition in those circumstances. this year we’re drawing and/or losing to many in games where we demonstrably gave our all but just couldn’t break through.
lots of talk about getting a new world class striker; somebody better with their feet than giroud. it is interesting that the only two recognized center forwards we have at the club (giroud and chamakh) are both insanely deadly in the air, yet both lack the footwork of an rvp or berbatov. I say that no world class striker will make our teams passing any faster or sharper which is SUPPOSED to be our forte.
it seems that if we’re not able to make any runs behind the defense and playing the offsides then our chances are cut substantially as no through-balls can be made. Although, I don’t miss alex song, I do miss his lofted through balls that would generally unlock a 10-men-behind-the-ball defense brilliantly.
Here’s to the boys getting it together before the games come back hot and heavy in xmas time.
