No professional should be beaten from that angle. Henry made it look harder than it was, and it would have a been a Bad Goal had it gone in.

Henry makes everything look more dramatic, or more difficult, than it needs to be.  Maybe someone can answer this…is there a reason that Henry cannot find a teammate more than 8 feet away?  Every goal kick…every time he has possession the ball is kicked or rolled to someone 8 feet away.  Be nice to see him go long once in a while.

For Forge, the gig is up.  The league has figured this team out.  The lack of a true centre back, the continuation of playing Achiniotti-Jonsson and Borges out of position, the belief that you can simply sign a team full of midfielders and play them anywhere, the complete lack of willingness to ever change formations or play two strikers at the same time, the short corners, the dinkity passes off free kicks, constantly making like for like substitutions…the rest of the league has caught up and figured it out. It worked for two plus years, but it’s wearing off fast and Bobby better figure this out soon.

Anyone else wonder if Campbell sometimes wonders why he signed for Forge? Starts on the bench…never being allowed to play a full 90 and being constantly played out of position.

I love your thinking here but they will probably still prevail as they seem to outspend everyone else

No way I’d believe it a week ago we’d take 6 points from Forge and not let in a goal. 
 

The annual playoff push is back baby!

Now Valour will have to deal with the weight of expectations, as they have a relatively soft set of opponents coming up. Not something they've normally dealt with well.

Huge result though. Levis and Baquero are so much more influential as wingbacks in this new formation.

I agree with most of this and have been singing this tune for a bit, the CB situation because of injuries has been brutal, I think Campbell had lots of chances, he just hasn't been very good overall, maybe not a good fit! Forge are going to have to turn this around quickly or they could be on the outside looking in for the play offs, they look slow and out of ideas, I wonder where the next goal will ever come from!

This is a slump, surely, but also their only real rough patch in league play in 4 years. Do you really think the fun is over?
