The Wrap: Penn FC 0-0 Nashville SC

After each game, I provide a handy recap of all the content related to that outing so you can find everything you need to get knowledgable about what went down. As always, if I missed anything, hit the comments, or the inbox via Twitter, Facebook, or e-mail (and follow those social media outlets while you’re there).

Game story.

The gaffer downplayed the impact of the long layoff in disrupting a bit of the team’s chemistry, with nine days off since the Indianapolis game. That’s a good thing, given that there’s an even longer gap – ten days – before the Boys in Gold hit the pitch again, this time on a trip to New York to take on Red Bulls II.

Don’t forget, you can contribute to community player ratings each week. The breakdown and player ratings picked Taylor Washington for Man of the Match, despite a slow start:

I’m actually a little surprised his community rating was so low, especially because of the way his performance compared to the player on the other wing… through 30 minutes Washington was absolutely invisible. He had exactly four touches, only one of them in what could be considered a dangerous area.

After that, he had a very solid performance (overcoming 30 minutes of basically on 0-fer to end up with the highest grade).

The film room broke down three separate plays to help explain 1) why NSC didn’t score, 2) why more goals should be coming, and 3) why the Best XI personnel still isn’t settled.

And of course, The Graphical, mining the data to visualize where exactly NSC needed to improve.
