It will be interesting to see how much RSL attacks. I think Kreis is putting
everyone on a bit.
Good point Nussdorfer.We abandoned our attacking style last time we were
in Dallas, and look what happened. While I think defense will be the focus, I
don't expect us to play like Columbus did last year against us in the playoffs.
Am I missing something here? We were given two examples of how playing
conservative on the road in the opening match of a 2-game series failed to pay
off for Chivas and Columbus. Why do we think it will work for us? I trust Jason
knows what he's doing, maybe this just a ploy? If we can escape with a draw that
will be a good accomplishment. I would dare say that we have a curse
playing in Dallas. It all started in 2005 when Eddie Pope was given a red card
for taking down Eddie Johnson. Replays showed it was clearly a dive.
Agreed, Nussdorfer. Why would Kreis apologize in July for an overly
defensive strategy which led to a loss in Dallas, and then go to Dallas in
October with an overly defensive strategy?On the other hand, RSL had
*a lot* of road draws this year, so predicting another one isn't exactly going
out on a limb.
Fact is that the match in Frisco earlier this year was going as planned until
jason pulled a offensive minded double substitution late in the match resulting
in giving up two late goals.I do not expect a 4-5-1 like last time we
played Dallas in Frisco, but we will come out defensive and hope to go home
either tied or up a goal with a breakaway goal. "Calling Findley"
We cannot take more than a 1 goal loss. Heck, I have a game in 2 weeks I want
to go to at Home Depot! and to meet a lot of you!! The thing is we need to
attack these guys, the Galazy exploited them. The weather will be as good as
ever this time of year with likely 70s.......Heat and Humidity should not be an
issue. Dallas lost the last two games, down cycle I want to go out and get 3
points why not...4-4-2 baby
