Taylor Twellman is “Salty” About Losing MLS Scoring Record

New, 2 comments

RBNY’s Bradley Wright-Phillips now owns the league record for fastest to score 100 goals and Taylor can’t keep a straight face about it.

MLS: New York Red Bulls at D.C. United Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Taylor Twellman has gone on some pretty legendary rants. His brutal takedown of the USMNT after the United States missed out on the 2018 World Cup will go down in history as an all-time great one, but yesterday he got a chance to speak about New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips breaking his MLS record for fewest games to 100 goals scored.

And with a little set up from Adrian Healey at halftime during yesterday’s El Trafico derby, Twellman crushed it.

Okay, so this isn’t so much of a rant as it is a passing of the torch, in classic Twellman style of course. While Taylor is right to point out BWP can’t score on a cold playoff day with football lines in Gillette, it’s still really impressive to be scoring over 20 goals a year for your first five full years in MLS. That is until Josef Martinez of Atlanta United annihilates both of them by scoring 30-plus in three seasons, but I digress.

BWP is worthy of this record and has been an outstanding player for years in this league and deserves all the accolades and praise that come with his status as one of the best scorers in MLS history. New Englanders just have to give such praise dripping in sarcasm and salt, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

Also, BWP’s goal celebration was dope and I will hear no arguments against it. Shouldn’t even have been carded though we do have the Eric Hassli standard to uphold here.

Twellman also opined on the Vancouver Whitecaps transfer of Alphonso Davies to Bayern Munich and the solidarity payments the Caps will make to Davies youth team.
