Yeah, in particular in our second goal his run drew defenders onto him and left Evans wide open for Tiffert's pass. There were other times, but this is the most obvious example.

They were an instant injection of intensity into the section that got others in the section going too. One of the better atmospheres in 121 I've seen this season, and I think this was a big part of it.

Hope you guys will stick around in 121 for future matches!


This was my second time in 121, I was in J by the aisle to be exact, and I thought it was pretty good. Not sure what was going on behind me, but in front of me, especially the first row had tons of energy! I know I was exhausted as I am sure we all were. Watching and listening to the ESPN replay brings a proud smile when I hear how loud we all were last night.

It's sad... We have a guy like Mario Martinez who can actually help us win a cup.. And Evans with the big contract still plays.. Just fucking sad... Nice goals Warm Body Evans.


Opta would like to disagree with you.

Evans had a pretty good game in the midfield, particularly defensively.

don't over rely on stats, you are not going to learn much about the game otherwise
example, successful passes...I could stand 2 feet away from one of my teammates and do the Barca
...tap the ball back and forth incessantly and i made a successful pass
layoffs...again ..could be a very simple pass back
throw ins...wow..throw it back as far as possible into my own half..chances are it will be successful
too many stats too many joke stats...

As I've mentioned before, one can be knowledgable about the game, and still look at stats for things you might not see on the pitch.

(FWIW, I think Evans actually had a better game than the stats indicate, but that's my subject observation of the match from GA)

Statistics have their place: never to replace expertise, but rather to supplement it. And I believe they are much more useful when used comparatively rather than in absolute terms.
