    Nice goal. Pretty amazing how he sees the entire field and knows that he can beat the keeper on the long range strike.

    Westberg saved a similar shot last night from Pity, but our last DCU game was a bit of a nightmare so who knows.

    That keeper was on a wander though.

    will be interesting to see if the same type of energy and initiative from last night will translate on the road.

    Not expecting much this game & with Canada also playing tonight, likely a lot less busy in here. DCU will not bunker as much as they did when at BMO but they will give us the ball. The trick tonight is going to be quick wide ball movement. With only 3 days between games, there will likely be changes in the lineup - possibly Auro. IF we are on the ball a lot, people have to move and not be static. I know our defence is going to give up at least 1 stupid one.

    A draw would be a good result.

    He looked just a tad slow to recognize it and unfortunately that’s all it took.

    Coaches will specifically tell their keepers to go that far out to receive an outlet pass when their own team is comfortable with the ball. The needless turnover put him in the cross hairs.

    Apparently we are running out of defenders again.

    Auro & Mavinga go but are not fit enough to make the bench. Moor & Zavs out.

    So our defence is Laryea, Ciman & Morrow.

    And may God have mercy on Westberg's soul.

    The lineup I saw had a bad mother... (shut your mouth), but I’m talking about Shaftleberg! as striker.

    Has Vanney finally transcended time and space to become the master of the mythical 1-9-0 formation?

    Spoke too soon. A 1-8-0. Brilliant!

    Cuts to Vanney laughing on the bench.

    Yeah, he's been improving and growing in confidence every game. Liking his directness.

    We are just not smart in defending this year, careless. We given the opposition opportunities out of nothing.

    Bring me some starters back (pray Poz and Jozy stay healthy for the most part), get a TAM player or two in, insert Shaff and Lareya, give Q the bulk of the keeper minutes, and we might have a competent team....if we get any points out of today or Thursday I’ll be ecstatic as I wrote off all four games from Dallas through LA.....

    We apparently have one fit CB, what else should they do? They haven’t scored yet so perhaps this is secretly our best defense.

    Yes, but also think of how great it is that we have so many young, competent, Canadian players who can come in and do a decent job while not costing all that much. Chapman, Shaffleburg, Lareya, Hamilton, Fraser. Those guys will be the core in 3-5 years (Well, Chapman is older than the rest).

    Some of these players (Chapman, Laryea, Hamilton) will be almost 30 in 5 years, and with MLS budgets likely to rise they probably won’t be “core” members of the squad then (unless the bench is our core).

    Too much going backwards and sideways again. We need more quick, decisive forward passes.

    Okay, yeah, I keep forgetting some of them are older.

    I really mean Fraser, Shaffleburg, and ... I guess that's it.
