    Zelarayan was sooo smooth there. Was beautiful to watch. The quote from Porter getting them moving side-to-side was really quite insightfull.

    It's who you dislike the least.

    Columbus is playing pretty good, flowing football.

    Seattle getting outcoached here - a lot like 2017.

    Went with the same team and getting killed on the wings - assumed they would have the ball more.

    Long way to go yet but as many up here are saying, Seattle has played bad for now 8 out of 9 halves they have played in MLS Cup Finals.

    Don’t mind seeing Columbus, except they are going to be good for a while.

    Starting Roldan over Leerdam is kind of dumb.

    Yeah, no thanks to Schmetzer.

    Columbus playing Porter ball to a tee - clog the middle, pace, second balls, long direct, defensive pressure, 2 strong CB's who move up into the passing lanes & then retreat.

    Half way there but a well played game so far by them.

    WOW, just wow, what I'm doing?
    I found myself cheering big time for the piss-stains, lol...

    Anyways, great first half for Columbus, and Seattle doing a big zero, nada in the first half.
    Go Columbus!

    I like that young Aiden Morris for Columbus. One to watch.

    I guess we have to give credit to Bez. Whatever happens.

    I don't mind a well constructed team that plays the game in a good way - CBus, Philly us - all worth watching and worth competing against.

    Its the Nashville's that I most despise.

    I think that’s a bit of a reach.

    Broadly, they didn’t come to play in round one but weren’t entirely outplayed. Round 2 is no question. Round 3... I’d have to rewatch that first half. some people think we outplayed them... I thought we looked like a cagey underdog more than eventual winner, sure enough...

    Now if you’re argument is they are no dynasty, I would have to agree.

    Doesn't help that his teammates seem to be defensively clueless

    If that was Mavinga, its a Red Card. Or at least reviewed.

    You know, we always talk about Frei but shouldn’t we talk about Williams who we basically jettisoned for Zavaleta on $300k a year.

    Zavs got that (too much IMHO) after 2016 after a better season then Williams (who still had 2015 hanging over him).

    Bit less black & white.

    That is fair. Not sure I’d see him as an ideal starter on today’s team either, despite being first choice for Columbus.

    Done and done - 2 in 4 and completely outplayed in those two, and a fluke in the first one with no shots on goal (still bitter), and even last year they were outplayed for more than half until a fluke deflection turned the tide —- not a dynasty, they stole a star from us in 2016.....

    Losing by 3 is the greatest losing margin in the 25 year history.
