What are the reasons for the FC Cincinnati's crisis?

FC Cincinnati has an enormous scoring deficit. Jaap Stam's team needs to find their way into the opposing ingoal.

Despite visiting Subaru Park, an extremely difficult field where Philadelphia Union hasn't lost a point this MLS season, at halftime, it seemed like FC Cincinatti could achieved it. But their inefficiency in scoring goals and the substitutions made by Philly's coach Jim Curtin changed the game completely.

It is not news that the orange and blue team find it difficult to convert goals, although it is a team whose style foccusses on possession of the ball. It had only scored goals in 2 of the last 11 games. One of them wasn't even useful, as it was scored during the loss against New York City FC.

With only 8 goals, it is the team with the fewest goals in favor of the entire MLS. It's at the bottom of it's conference, only ahead of DC UNITED. In addition, in last night's game, Dutch forward Jürgen Locadia got injured in the 75th minute, worsening the outlook for Jaap Stam's team.

Another aspect that shows fragility in FC Cincinnati is their poor moral when a rival scores a goal. It seems like it is impossible to imagine a comeback for the Ohio side. So far this season,  they have not been able to score even one point since the rivals get ahead on the scoreboard.
