We have a very big problem on our hands. The Rapids have lost seven regular season MLS games and now got shut out by a 3-month old USL side in the US Open Cup. Anthony Hudson changed the formation, but we saw the same results and not a single player stood out as playing well.
Even with a limited selection to choose from, Hudson put out a decent starting lineup. But you have to wonder why Caleb Calvert was sitting in Charlotte when the only forwards that went to Nashville were Dominique Badji and Jack McBean. You have to wonder why they played three in the back with Micheal Azira as one of the centerbacks when he has played all of 110 minutes this entire season.
If you didn’t watch, you didn’t miss much.
We may have won possession tonight, but not only did the Rapids get shut out, THEY DIDN’T GET A SINGLE SHOT ON GOAL. NOT ONE.
Nashville got on the board in the 39th minute with an Azira own goal and then headed in a cross in the 78th minute. The Rapids are out of the Open Cup tournament.
