    There is still a shit load of room in front of the back 3. What are Cheyrou and Warner doing?!?!

    I thought he'd learned from the first half of the Vancouver game.

    This. Warner is OK as a shuttler but for some reason put him in the middle and ...ugh.

    Thing is, Columbus defence and midfield can be had. But you need 4 at the back to play them and we just don't have 4 to put in the back this week.

    Of course they're losing. Gerry Dobson is a curse.

    Lovitz was fine at left back against new york. Don't know why we didn't go with the same back line as that game.

    Vanney's lineup decisions are so bad I've considered he's illuminati here to destruct. In-form Osorio sitting while Warner and Lovitz start - both terrible. Bendik, terrible. Hagglund getting nothing despite Zavaleta sucking. Creavalle at NYC...

    Given this is a very likely post season match up, we really need to start performing better at Mapfre Stadium than we've seem on the 2 occasions this season or its going to be a very brief playoff run

    Altidore looks incredibly disinterested today.

    Roster needs work. A few injuries and we are forced into using some bizarre formations / lineup decisions (some of it self inflicted).

    I should have just finished the second half of Children of Men. Even that would have been less depressing than this.

    We're having problems defensively. Let's just do 3 guys instead of 4. That'll help.

    Perquis is due for another bone head play and I can see it coming.

    Hagglund had his appendix out... Unavailable.

    Not to take away from the rest of your point tho.

    Problem isn't playing three in the back. The problem is changing formations in MLS, where players get confused easily when they're playing a system that isn't familiar to them. Cheyrou and Warner keep pushing forward as soon as possession is won, but the back line doesn't push up with them. When we lose possession, the back line retreats but the midfield keeps pushing forward. You can't play with a high press from your wide players and deep midfielders if your defenders aren't comfortable moving up with them.

    Disagree completely on Hagglund he's sucked far worse than Zavaleta. In fact I think we have a pretty decent if not good defence, its just it only works with one lineup Morrow-Perquis-Zavaleta-Morgan. Together good, any deviation terrible.

    Well that sums up the first half in a nut shell.

    Morrow--Perquis--Zavaleta--Jackson. If you want more defensively, put Delgado there, as he started (and was good) multiple games at RB for Chivas.

    Given how shit Warner and Cheyrou have been in the first half... I am not opposed to giving Manella 20 minutes to see what he can do. Nothing to lose.

    Tactics, atmosphere, commentary all shite.
    Watching perquis positioning is like watching a kid play football

    We could have done with that chance for Gio at the end of the half to go in. Lucklustre performance in first half and we are going to need to take it up a gear in the second 45 if we are going ro get anything out of this game

    I don't think Cheyrou is really an anchor, more a classic two-way.

    We'd have been better playing with Warner as the holder, flat back four, Osorio and Cheyrou mid and Delgado behind the forwards. Everyone' s familiar with it.
