This was definitely a tough one to watch from the couch. Especially considering the late start time of 10pm! At least it’s the last game we play at 10pm or later. We strolled out the 4-4-2 formation we’ve been using for most of this season with Mauro. Speaking of Mauro, another Mauro Diaz sighting this game. Someone needs to talk to Maxi about his hair but first let’s chat about our magical unicorn.
Ok great, but when can you start?
Diaz got a rousing applause back when he came on against the Dynamo in Frisco a few weeks ago, and that was nice. Ever since then Mauro has been making sub appearances as he gets back into the rhythm of things. I’m not saying he should’ve started this road turf game after also playing midweek against Tulsa, but surely soon right? Our team has unfortunately been figured out it seems like, and the 4-4-2 isn’t fun anymore. We played a heavily injured Vancouver with almost a full roster and only managed to tie them. My hope is that we preserve him one more match and start him July 1st at home against a daunting Toronto FC team.
If Maxi’s form is rooted in his hair, then he can keep it going forever. This guy has been on fire recently and seemed like our most dangerous player going forward. Especially since the rest of our offense just hasn’t been able to find their scoring touches. With that said, however, I feel like I have to give a shout out to his hilarious hair. Granted, I don’t have the most stellar hair, but the bounce when he runs is borderline mesmerizing. I both love it and am bothered by it at the same time.
Finally, your fan quote of the night: “Keep crossing to the 5’4” guy.” Our offense looked threatening, but this one made me chuckle.
Were you even awake for this game? When would you like to see Mauro Diaz start? What are your personal thoughts on Maxi Urruti’s hair? Let me know in the comments below!
