Was it pure desperation? Fan and Media pressure? Fate? Whatever the cause of Klebersons late insertion in the game and his precision amazing direct kick has made everyone aware of just 1 of the positives Kleberson can bring to the Union attack? It is still a mystery why Hackworth has not used him more. He has been sitting on the bench in uniform for the last several games. There should be no going back now barring a Kleberson injury. Kleberson should be on the pitch for at least half a game. Hackworth gave a begrudged congratulation to Kleberson in his postgame interview with Heather Mitts. Klebersons appearance was long overdue. The Union offense came to life when Hoppenot made his runs through the middle final third of the field. Both Kleberson and Torres can create and are willing to attack from the middle of the field. To have your 2 most creative players sitting on the bench for 90% of the season shows a lack of tactical creativity and stubbornness by Hackworth. Teams have the book on Philly. Guard the flanks and don’t ever worry about an attack from the middle of the field because they never do that. The Union were fortunate to win another game 1-0. Hackworth has to vary his attack and insert either Kleberson, or Torres at Center Mid or the Union are likely be shut down offensively if they make the playoffs. Hackworth’s offensive tactics are just too predictable and will be easily defended by the better teams.
