I agree. Look at Portland in MLS. They are 0-1-3. They don't play a home game until June 1. That's an insane road trip. Not having a home field plays a role. Plus, it's been 4 games. It's a long season and this is their first. Give it time.Yes. They haven’t played more than one game on the same field.
We’ve seen these killer road trips on MLS teams when they open their new stadiums. Even for established teams this start to the season is rough.
Not always. Most own goals are a bad bounce. That was the case for the first own goal against Louisville, the defending league champs. The defender was less than five yards from the attacker and had a hard shot ricochet off his leg into the corner of the net. I've seen world class defenders have the same thing happen.Yes, I get they have no home. And I really don't wish them ill.
But using two own goals as an excuse is sort of like saying they lost because they were drunk. The excuse is worse than the losses.
