Soccer Wednesday: Your Running Commentary

European Cup action headlines Wednesday afternoon before the MLS playoffs kick off in the evening.

A Manchester Derby serves as the main event, as Manchester United hosts Manchester City in the EFL Cup. The match is a virtual must-win for Man United, who have struggled for form under Jose Mourinho. Man City, meanwhile, hasn’t been in hot form either, as Pep Guardiola’s men are still reeling from a recent beatdown at the hands of Barcelona.

In Germany, Julian Green and Bayern Munich take on Augsburg, while a Christian Pulisic-less Borussia Dortmund faces off with Union Berlin.

Finally, at night, the MLS postseason begins as Toronto FC hosts the Philadelphia Union before Real Salt Lake visits the LA Galaxy.

      Apart from the goal, Green is playing quite well. Reviving the ball well, bringing the midfield into the attack quickly with good first touch passes. I still don’t see this as an effective position for him, though. He’s lacking a lot of the physical tools needed to be dynamic going against two center backs on his own.

      As I’m typing this he lays off a ball for Muller who loses possession and leads to a goal on the counter. Someone will blame Green for that because Muller is Muller, but they’d be unfairly harsh on the kid because Muller was slow to react.

        Reviving, lol. It fits in a certain way, but I meant “receiving”

        Muller ruins another attack. He also missed a penalty

        I’d like to see him in that position against a better side that wouldn’t just bunker in. Hard to find open runs when there are 7 or 8 defenders in the box.

        “He’s lacking a lot of the physical tools needed to be dynamic going against two center backs on his own.” I’m curious as to what physical tools you think he is lacking.
