MLS Defenses often...stink.

This is a simple one to explain. The player who makes the impressive breakaway will NOT score a goal. He has no angle. He needs help. The defense leaves the offensive support wide open in the middle. I make an obvious point to say that an offensive player 6 feet in front of the goal should usually be covered goal-side like police on a drunk driving: Only bad things will happen if you don't!

Boys and girls: Don't copy this defense. They are weak. I know, I know. They are "professionals". Professional in MLS defense does not mean competent.
